Toronto Hotels

Toronto’s luxury hotel scene has exploded in the last few years, but its high-end scene is only one side of the story. Away from the central areas you’ll find plenty of trendy boutique hotels, B&Bs and youth hostels to cater for all tastes and budgets. The best hotels tend to be located on the fringes of the downtown area, although downtown itself has several luxury hotels as well as a selection of lively hostels. The city’s outskirts and airport area are good budget accommodation.

The Toronto hotels below have been handpicked by our guide author and are grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over C$250)
Moderate (C$120 to C$250)
Cheap (up to C$120)

These Toronto hotel prices are the starting prices for a standard double room and include taxes and breakfast unless otherwise specified. Hotel prices are subject to a provincial sales tax, levied at 5%, as well as a federal goods and services tax of 5%. This is usually added to the bill at the end. Tipping is expected in Toronto and porters are usually given a C$5 note for their efforts.
