The Adelaide Hotel, Toronto

An elegantly appointed Toronto skyscraper
Sponsored page. This property is not Star Rated.
When this building opened in January 2012, it was a dramatic addition to Toronto’s skyline. With its gleaming silver spire, The Adelaide Hotel, Toronto is Canada’s tallest residential building and, at 900 feet offers one of the city's tallest peaks.

The new hotel also sets itself apart through its luxury amenities: a heated saltwater, infinity-edged lap pool with a view; a spa that serves wine and Scotch from its impressive collection (a bottle of Glenfiddich was auctioned here last year for CAD$52,000, or approximately US$51,748); personal attaché service and 24-hour concierge attention; and expansive suites furnished more like chic condos than hotel rooms. In short, visitors coming to Canada’s financial capital have a new luxury hotel to call home.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The style The Adelaide Hotel is deluxe, urban and modern, softened with classic touches of glamour that hearken back to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
  • The designers’ color palette of caviar and champagne — the darkness of smooth black marble, contrasted against the frothy effervescence of white and pink accents — oozes luxury from every room of the hotel.
  • On the 31st floor, enjoy a late-afternoon pedicure in a comfy black leather chair in the spa or swim morning laps in a shimmering, 61-foot pool as the sunrise gradually lights up the paler tones of saltwater, sandstone and white chaise loungers.
  • The hotel’s central downtown location is ideal for shoppers in search of designer goods from The Bay, Canada’s largest department store; couples seeking world-class opera, ballet, symphony and theater performances in the nearby Entertainment District; and families looking for a stress-free weekend retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
