    A temple of cool; each and every touchpoint of the guest experience well executed, great F&B options, helpful staff. The Drake continues to set a very high bar for boutique hotels the world over.

    For the cocktails, the art, the ambiance, the clientele, the celebrities, the music, the rooms and the cuisine … nine years later it remains just as relevant. [Eater 38 Member]

    This steel foundry from the 1800s has been transformed into an intimate inn boasting views of Lake Ontario. Expect a ping-pong room and restaurant with vintage furniture. Fun and Familiar. Read more

    Live music, contemporary art, fantastic food & a boutique hotel all in one trendy package. Tip: on a warm night you want to be in the VIP section upstairs- get there early to avoid another lineup.

    Burger is actually one of the city's best. Sushi is fine. Edamame is so good, huge portion. Good VQA selection by the glass. Desserts are the best kept secret, ESP sticky toffee pudding.
