Hotel OchoThis trendy, minimalist hotel was once both a garment and a tobacco factory. Hotel Ocho is perfect for travelers more concerned with location than amenities. The hotel doesn’t offer room service or a gym, but rooms are spacious and the location in the heart of Chinatown is hard to beat. The loftlike rooms feature steel, exposed brick, and original wood paneling. They feel like your own urban apartment. Just outside the hotel’s doors are shopping and entertainment destinations Queen Street West and Kensington Market.
