When it opened in 2010, the Thompson Toronto was the first foray into Canada for this hotel brand. Several years later, it has more than lived up to the hype, with a rooftop lounge, spa, yoga center, a winter ice rink and plush, modern rooms. The property is in the King West Village, with the CN Tower, Harbourfront and Rogers Centre (home of the Toronto Blue Jays) all within a 10-minute walk.
Known for its party scene, the exclusive top-floor lounge is the hotel’s main appeal -- it’s all about the “rooftop, rooftop, rooftop," says The New York Times. Only open to guests, residents and a select few, the glass-walled bar serves high-end cocktails and has 360-degree views of the city and CN Tower. When night falls, smart evening wear is required, but in warmer months guests can stop by for a swim in the beautiful infinity pool during the day.
For food, there is Japanese fusion on offer at Hibachi Teppanyaki & Bar, burgers and live sports at the Thompson Diner and weekend brunch at Colette Grand. Opt for a seat on the outdoor terrace for views of Victoria Memorial Park. Downstairs, the basement lounge is especially popular during the Toronto International Film Festival (when it attracts a throng of celebrity guests, including Maggie Gyllenhaal and Gerard Butler), and is so exclusive you’ll need to order bottle service to snag a seat. There’s also a private screening room and well-equipped gym.
Rooms are bright and spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows, dark, hardwood floors and statement furniture -- some also have balconies. Large bathrooms have heated marble floors and powerful rainfall showers.

- "Though cheerful staff effortlessly attend to guests, the Thompson is first and foremost a nightlife playground" -- Conde Nast Traveler
- "The luxe rooms are chic yet comfortable; the service attentive, but not cloying; the location a welcome launching point for seeing the groovier parts of the city, but also convenient to the theater district" -- Frommer's
