The Best Boutique Hotels in Toronto 


The best boutique hotels in Toronto are often cultural hubs as much as hotels. These spots often host pop-up galleries, exhibits, and special events, along with creative innovation in the form of their ever-evolving suites and sensational dining menus. These boutique hotels do "intimate" in a way that blows their colossal-sized counterparts out the water, though that personal attention and cozy appeal usually comes at a bit of a premium price.

Neighborhood: Bay Street Corridor   


Thanks to the upsurge in condo construction, downtown is becoming a full-fledged residential neighbourhood.  Along the Bay Street Corridor, the newest condos are giving the financial district's soaring bank towers a run for their money. Among the cloud-skimming skyscrapers, the 65-storey Trump Tower and the 66-storey Shangri-La development both double as luxury hotels. And on the Yonge Street border the 78-storey Aura at College Park tower aims to be one of, if not the, tallest tower in the nation.

The latest data from Statistics Canada and the U.S. Census Bureau show Toronto's population at an estimated 2,791,140, narrowly edging out Chicago, which sits at an estimated 2,707,120. The top three spots go to Mexico City, New York and Los Angeles.

Judy's story:   

The time had come for me to downsize and move from a beloved house to a space which no longer needed so much tender loving care and maintenance.  It was time to find a condo!  I very much loved my current midtown area and did not want to leave.  The location was named and Shawn went to work for me, looking for a two bedroom, two bathroom condo.
