    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    The Windsor Arms is an especially quaint Toronto boutique hotel, according to recent visitors. A brick exterior welcomes visitors to the elegant comforts inside. It's the beauty of this Yorkville property, nestled among high-end shops, that keeps many guests returning to this spot, just steps from Bloor Street. Recent visitors said the 28 suites — equipped with an acoustic guitar, deep soaking tubs and flat-screen TVs — are worth the hotel's high price. And for the anglophiles who can't get enough of the property's English atmosphere, the Windsor Arms features an on-site tea room offering midday sips alongside a fireplace. For larger meals, try one of the hotel's two on-site restaurants: Courtyard Café and The Living Room. At the spa, a large terrace and saltwater pool are each refreshing ways to unwind before or after a treatment.

    A short stroll from the waterfront in Niagara-on-the-Lake (about 15 miles north of Niagara Falls), the Shaw Club Hotel – and its romantic atmosphere – consistently impresses visitors.

Another bonus: Tunes flow out of the Home Smith Jazz Bar, the popular live music lounge just off the hotel's lobby. Care to get out of the hotel?

    Executive Hotel Cosmopolitan
    Toronto
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1089 reviewsTripAdvisor (1089)
    Free WiFi

    This hotel's central location draws the most praise from travelers; the Executive Hotel Cosmopolitan sits on quiet Colborne Street in Toronto's buzzing Financial District, just a few blocks from the Air Canada Centre and less than 20 miles from Toronto Pearson International Airport. But while the hotel aims to feel like a secluded oasis separated from the hustle and bustle of the city, with floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs and kitchens (complete with toasters and coffee makers), some previous visitors say the hotel lacks personalization. Past guests recommend upgrading to a Tranquility Suite for extra space and a kitchen outfitted with a fridge and microwave. And if it's nightlife you seek, you may not even need to leave the property to get a taste of the Toronto scene. The swanky lounge Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar offers an extensive wine list and mouthwatering cuisine (think: filet mignon, pesto pasta and wild mushroom risotto). If you're looking to catch up on some rest and relaxation, venture to the SpaZen Spa, which offers massages and body treatments, plus a 1,500-sqaure-foot solarium.
