Park Hyatt Toronto
From a perilous start during the Great Depression, the building that houses the Park Hyatt Toronto in the Yorkville area has evolved with the times. The luxury venue, formerly the Park Plaza Hotel, remains one of the most venerable hotels in the city, and it places guests within walking distance of several high-class retailers as well as the esteemed Royal Ontario Museum. The Hyatt chain purchased the property in 1999, and it underwent a total renovation that include the addition of an almost-2,000-square-foot penthouse. Guests can explore the neighborhood using a bicycle valet program, relax in the spa, gaze at the skyline from the legendary Roof Lounge, or enjoy fine dining in Annona restaurant.
