Conveniently located near the subway, museums, and upscale boutiques and galleries of Toronto’s swish Yorkville neighborhood, the Park Hyatt Toronto originally opened in 1929. Seventy years later, a south tower was added to the hotel, with the art deco–influenced lobby space linking the two. The spacious rooms have a soothing palette of pale peach, dusky pink, beige, and gold. The Annona restaurant has a similarly rich color scheme, boldly decked out in shades of plum and gold, with plush banquettes and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Yorkville. The 18th floor offers sweeping views over Queens Park and the CN Tower, but the main attraction may be the Roof Lounge’s bartender, Joe Gomes: He’s been shaking up cocktails here for the past 50 years, so guests can order a martini from a man who knows how to make them just right. A host of other extras, including complimentary town car service within a five-kilometer radius, free Wi-Fi, and even a kosher kitchen, add to the hotel’s charms.

Reopened after rennovations

Open since 1936, this Yorkville stalwart closed in 2017 for a four-year overhaul. It was worth the wait. Reimagined and reconfigured, the Park Hyatt Toronto blends Canadian art, locally sourced materials, and nature-inspired decor into one of the city’s most storied luxury hotels. The soaring lobby includes celebrated restaurant Joni—named after Joni Mitchell—along with vitrines displaying ceramic art on loan from the neighboring Gardiner Museum. The Park Hyatt’s 219 guest rooms, which include 40 suites, feature art deco-inspired furnishings, ample lighting, and enormous beds worth spending all day in. Don’t miss the 17th-floor Writer’s Room Bar, with its skyline views and portraits of Canadian literati—including Margaret Atwood and Farley Mowat—who are known to have gathered at the hotel.
