Three-Diamond Hotel in Lively Downtown Toronto
At more than 1,800 feet tall, the futuristic CN Tower⎯one of the tallest structures in the Western Hemisphere⎯cuts an imposing figure against Toronto's skyline. Throngs of tourists come to ride high-speed elevators to a glass-floored room in the building that offers a bird's-eye view of downtown Toronto. Residence Inn Toronto Downtown/Entertainment District is a five-minute walk from CN Tower and close to other Toronto attractions, including the Hockey Hall of Fame and the family-friendly Ontario Science Centre.
Many of the Residence Inn’s chic guest rooms feature views of downtown Toronto. Inside, the decor is smart and sophisticated, with asymmetrical furniture and bold geometric patterns. The roomier one-bedroom suites are outfitted with fully equipped kitchens, but if you don't feel like eating in, you can dine on upscale Indian cuisine at 259 Host, just seconds away. In the morning, the hotel has a complimentary breakfast spread that includes a hot buffet along with snacks you can eat on the go.
Toronto, Ontario: Massive Skyscrapers, Offbeat Neighborhoods, and the Ed Mirvish Theatre
Soaring skyscrapers, vibrant shops, nightclubs, and restaurants jostle for attention in downtown Toronto. When you’re not checking out the city from top of CN Tower, it’s worth exploring Toronto’s offbeat neighborhoods up close. The Queen West neighborhood, just north of the entertainment district, is replete with antique shops and art galleries. A walk around further reveals pubs and cafés that feature live jazz, blues, and country music.
The Ed Mirvish Theatre, built in the 1920s as a vaudeville and motion-picture theater, still shows big-name musicals such as The Wizard of Oz. It’s easy to be distracted during a show, though, by the theater’s beauty. Stunning, peach-colored marble covers its grand double staircase⎯adorned with a stained-glass window and wall-length fresco⎯and the lobby and halls are lined with glowing chandeliers.
