The Vibe

O Canada – Toronto is where it’s at right now and people are really starting to take notice. You know the drill here: pack your chicest outfits, download some Drake songs for the flight and book your stay at Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice #1 hotel in Canada, the Thompson Toronto.


The Sleep

Designed by Studio Gaia, the 105 modern luxe rooms are refined with top-of-the-line amenities, linens and service. Synonymous with the Thompson’s refined edge, each luxury guestroom and suite offers beautiful, naturally illuminated rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow sun to bounce off the crisp white walls. The light is contrasted with dark wood and orange accents, the beds are tucked-in with luxurious linens, and (our favorite part) the floors are heated. There are four suites available – The King, The Executive, The Thompson and The Penthouse. The best of the best is The Penthouse Suite, made up of a master bedroom, full kitchen, marble bath, spacious living room and 8-seat dining room. The room comes with 270-degree views of the city, a billiard table and 300-thread count sateen linens. Snuggle up!


The Taste

The Lobby Bar is a sophisticated meeting place by day and night where guest interaction is encouraged and mingling is effortless. The rooftop at the Thompson Toronto has been crowned one of the top seasonal rooftop pools. The Rooftop Lounge, open year-round, offers 360-degree views, inspired cocktails, a full bottle menu and live entertainment for a perfect night above the city’s commotion.


The Locale

The eccentric area of Central King West is the place to be in downtown Toronto for the best culture, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. It’s all about the culture here in the ‘six’ and there’s plenty of it! The Art Gallery of Ontario shows off a variety of architecture, sculpture and photography. CN tower is a standalone icon of the Toronto skyline that contains a revolving restaurant, observation deck, and a thrilling edge walk. The Kensington Market is a natural historic site of Canada that holds multi-cultural aspects of the nationhood’s best shops, cafes and random happenings. For some last minute glam, head to Hoax Couture for a little something to slip into before taking on the night.
