Chatelaine named sweetgrass spa the Best City Spa in Toronto for 2010, saying:
- Need a quick escape from city life? Look no further than the Sweetgrass Spa, one of Toronto’s best-kept secrets. Its assortment of menu offerings, all provided by senior staffers, makes for a first-rate experience every time. …But, really, it’s the Sweetgrass extras that let you indulge in a luxurious escape without the price tag of a full-on getaway: The decor is warm and inviting, the locker rooms are spacious, and guests can enjoy champagne and cocktails in the lounge or order from the award-winning George Restaurant from the comfort of their cozy robe. Ahh, what hustle and bustle? – Beth Thompson, Chatelaine
