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, contempo 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 chef Scott Conant’s Scarpetta, a 24-hour “modern diner,” and a rooftop lounge with infinity pool and skyline views of the city.
