A tony Toronto classic in Yorkville
291 Rooms / 45 Suites
Occupying a prime patch of real estate on Yorkville’s Avenue Road, Park Hyatt Toronto offers an excellent base for exploring the Canadian city as it is just steps from department stores like Holt Renfrew and cultural venues including The Royal Ontario Museum.
In the 1960s, Yorkville was the center of Toronto’s bohemian culture and the hotel’s Roof Lounge served as a meeting place for prolific writers and artists. The next few decades would see the growth and flourishing of Yorkville into a high-end, fashionable neighborhood. And the famed lounge is still around — Park Hyatt is also the only Toronto hotel with a rooftop bar and patio that offers a spectacular view of the city skyline.
Aside from a great location, the 336-room hotel stands out for its outstanding service, from the helpful concierges to the thorough housekeepers, while its contemporary restaurants Morton’s, The Steakhouse, and Annona attract their own share of fans. The spa and wellness offerings also are a draw, including the 10,000-foot Stillwater Spa with a full salon, a bicycle valet and an in-your-room program called YogaAway, which allows you to practice your poses while you’re traveling.
Speaking of rooms, you will find neutral creams and browns in the hotel’s contemporary accommodations alongside crisp white bedding and cherry wood furnishings with black trim; framed color photographs grace the walls. Design enthusiasts should inquire about the hotel’s Pink and Blue Suites, which were created by Sarah Richardson for Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer awareness. As their names suggest, the rooms are filled with pink and blue touches, and a portion of the proceeds from room sales fund in the effort to find a cure.
