A personalized luxury experience in Toronto
Located just steps from the heart of downtown Toronto, Templar Hotel offers a one-of-a-kind city hotel experience, with just 27 uniquely decorated rooms. This sleek and contemporary urban retreat takes technological savvy to another level not seen elsewhere in the travel world—rather than placing telephones in the guest rooms, Templar provides iPads pre-loaded with FaceTime so that guests have a direct and personal lines to the front desk and its Monk Kitchen chef, making video chat the primary means of reaching the staff for everything from a quick question to a room service order. All of which means, you won’t need to leave the beautifully designed confines of your spacious room, each of which feels more like a private apartment than your usual hotel room.
The aforementioned Monk Kitchen and Lounge is helmed by Chef Roberto Fracchioni and operates on a primarily custom basis—instead of a formal menu, you’ll be asked to explain what you like, what you hate, and what you’re in the mood for. Your meal or cocktail will be created just for you, based on those specifications, and somehow, they always seem to hit the nail right on the head.
The hotel’s recently opened spa, Onsen, also offers an exceptionally individual experience – for any treatment from manicure to massage, you will not only be led to a private room, but also receive solo access to the spa’s plunge pool, quiet Japanese garden and more.
