Toronto's Top Hotels Will Have You Sleeping in Style

Whether you're looking for accommodations that are hip and trendy, family-friendly, business-oriented or with Old World charm, you'll find a hotel in Toronto to suit your needs - especially when you have this list as your cheat sheet.

Ever since Toronto became Hollywood North, it has been infusing glamorous charm into its downtown hotels. The Hazelton Hotel opened just before the Toronto International Film Festival in 2007, dedicated to the exquisite details that we all love, such as heated bathroom floors. If your pocketbook can stand the splurge, there is plenty of luxurious choices sprinkled around the city. The Ritz Carlton has its own yoga classes, amazing views and a bar that likes to serve celebrities and professional athletes. (And you, of course.)

If your life is more on the "save" side than on the "splurge" side, not to worry. There are plenty of charming downtown hotels that will make your travel experience memorable. The Delta Toronto has tons of rooms to accommodate Toronto's burgeoning tourist population and is a mere stone's throw from the happening areas of downtown Toronto. (Don't throw stones, though. Canadians, although friendly, don't like that.)

Toronto, like many metropolis centres, doesn't sleep much. That doesn't mean you can't, especially in deluxe bedding.
