1 Hotel Toronto

550 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2V4, Canada

This hotel is on our list of The Best Hotels in Canada.

Over the past seven years, 1 Hotels has proven that eco-conscious luxury can be successful in North American cities ranging from New York to West Hollywood. The 1 Hotel Toronto, in the center of town, is no exception. Architecture and design firm Rockwell Group partnered with the developer Athens Group for 1 Hotel’s first Canadian property, bringing in Toronto-based craftspeople to build custom dining and side tables out of local wood in the 112 biophilic guest rooms and public spaces, where native plants fill shelves. The hotel works with recycling partner Green Planet to convert leftover kitchen oil and grease into biofuel.

Canadian to the core

Though the 1 Hotel brand launched in Miami and New York, its first Canadian hotel has more local DNA than a maternity ward. Ontario woodworkers transformed fallen Toronto trees into more than 1,000 pieces of furniture. Local landscapers maintain the hotel’s 3,000 plants. Toronto artists Moss & Lam created the feathery hanging lobby sculpture. And the 1 Kitchen restaurant taps nearby purveyors like Cookstown Greens (Thornton), Sheldon Creek Dairy (Loretto), and downtown’s Forno Cultura Breads. A rooftop pool and bar give you more ways to embrace nature, while bright, rustic-chic guest rooms feel restorative after wading into the neighborhood’s raucous nightlife.
