If you’re heading to Toronto anytime in the near future, you must consider staying at Park Hyatt Toronto, sitting right in the heart of the fashionably chic Yorkville area. Rising high amongst the 700 upscale shops, restaurants, unique art galleries and renowned museums downtown, Park Hyatt Toronto was the perfect place from which to base myself on my first trip to this great city.
Boasting 336 spacious guest rooms and suites, this hotel in Toronto offers a warm, residential feel with genuine hospitality. I think 3 or 4 people greeted me before I had even reached the elevator! Impressive. And it was clear upon entering my room that staying here was going to make my trip.
My room was incredibly cozy and spacious and was complete with a comfortable king size bed, appointed with fine Italian linens, and a mountain of pillows.
Lush bathrobes, cozy slippers and Davies Gate amenities were provided in the generously sized bathroom. The main living area also offered a little sitting area perfect for lounging and late night chats.
Although my room was fabulous, the rooms really worth mentioning are the hotel’s Pink and Blue Rooms designed by the brilliant Canadian designer (one of my favorites), Sarah Richardson. These one-of-a-kind gems were created for Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer awareness respectively.
They are absolutely stunning.
The Pink Room is a whirlwind of pink; the perfect place to celebrate a girls’ night out, or a Mother/Daughter getaway. The Blue Suite features the color blue in everything, from the paintings to the linens. It’s popular with both men and women.
One morning, I had the pleasure of enjoying a delicious brunch at the delightful Annona Restaurant. This stylish Yorkville restaurant serves incredible gourmet international cuisine throughout the entire day in a seriously charming setting.
My time in Toronto was quite busy, otherwise I would have liked to check out the legendary Rooftop Lounge as well. Rooftop Lounge is a favorite among locals and visiting celebrities from what I hear. This is especially true during the Toronto International Film Festival when it hosts 10 days straight of partying! This is the city’s only rooftop bar and patio and offers extraordinary views of Toronto’s skyline, so I can see why it’s so appealing.
For those looking to escape the urban world of Toronto for an hour or two, or more… the Stillwater Spa is Toronto’s #1 spa according to many – a 10, 000 square foot urban oasis right in the hotel.
This outstanding spa features 17 treatment rooms, saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools, a full-service salon an aqua pool and spa boutique. This spa is one of one four 4 Diamond spas in Canada and offers so many indulgent treatments.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Park Hyatt Toronto and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Toronto this year!
