Our Toronto Hotel: home base in the heart of the city
From our admittedly stellar vantage point on Bloor Street West, steps from some of Toronto’s most renowned attractions and locally beloved, under the radar gems, it’s easy to see how it has cemented its position as one of North America’s must-visit cities.
This city of more than 100 diverse neighbourhoods has so much to discover. Walk east from the hotel and you’ll soon be in upscale Yorkville, with its high-end retailers and trendy restaurants. Or, head west, deeper into the Annex neighbourhood and discover a hotbed of independent culture. And that’s all within a few blocks.
If you venture further, you’ll find eclectic market & boutique shopping opportunities, a flourishing dining and brewery scene, more than a few chances to catch a pro sporting event and abundant green space. It’s no wonder Travel + Leisure and Architectural Digest recognized Toronto among their top travel destinations in 2018.
The University of Toronto’s St. George campus sits practically across the street from Kimpton Saint George, while Ryerson University, OCAD University and York University are each just a short drive or TTC ride away (hop on at St. George Station). We’ve made it easy to stay off campus but still in the middle of all Toronto has to offer.
This dynamic neighbourhood (and home to Kimpton Saint George) is favoured by Toronto locals. Low-key indie shops, restaurants, bars and music venues as well as world-class museums can be found along the Bloor Street Culture Corridor at The Annex’s southern end. Explore a bit north of Bloor and you’ll find yourself among handsome historic mansions. This multi-faceted neighbourhood can keep you entertained all day and late into the evening (thanks to its vibrant nightlife scene).
From high fashion to fast fashion, upscale Yorkville is a shopping paradise. Once the domain of bohemians and hippies in the 1960’s, the vibe is considerably chicer nowadays. Designer shops, posh boutiques, buzzy restaurants and swanky spas make this neighbourhood a must-visit for anyone looking to indulge in some retail therapy.
Kimpton Saint George places you at the northern border of Toronto’s expansive Downtown, with easy access to the more than two dozen distinct neighbourhoods that comprise this cosmopolitan mosaic. From the Vogue-approved West Queen West and the glam Entertainment District to eclectic Kensington Market and the heritage architecture and modern diversions of the Distillery District, Toronto’s downtown is an urban explorer’s dream.
