The first foreign outpost for the Manhattan hotel brand, Thompson Toronto opened in 2010. Its location in King West Village puts it a short walk from the entertainment, art and design, and financial districts, as well as stellar shopping. Common areas in the 102-room property have a sleek, contemporary aesthetic: clean lines, richly grained wood, marble, and hits of neo-Baroque damask. Guest rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows and heated marble bathroom floors. Dining and bar options include the newly revamped Colette Grand Café helmed by the talented Executive Chef Amira Becarevic, and a see-and-be-seen rooftop lounge with infinity pool and skyline views of the city. Great coffee, pastries, and baked goods in the cafe's coffee bar help start every morning on the right foot.
