Yorkville

Establishment neighborhood
The Windsor Arms
18 St. Thomas St., Yorkville
Bursting with old-world charm but stocked with modern luxuries, each of the twenty-eight suites is spacious and beautifully appointed, and you’ll also find—interestingly—a musical instrument in each one. For a real treat book into the Windsor, replete with a baby grand piano, fireplaces in the bedroom (plus one in the bathroom), and a beautiful lounge area furnished with an antique writing desk. Other amenities include a fifteen-seat screening room, a gym, and a saltwater pool and spa. The Courtyard café does a great brunch.
The Royal Ontario Museum
100 Queens Park, Yorkville
A serious cultural destination, the Royal Ontario Museum consistently has an enviable roster of exhibits, plus a notable permanent collection under its belt. With no specific focus, the permanent galleries span African and Middle Eastern art, Chinese architecture, ancient dinosaurs and mammals, Bronze Age artifacts, and textiles to name a few. Recent exhibits have included a retrospective of Christian Dior haute couture, an exploration of the Vikings (perfect for kiddos), and a unique examination of the role played by architecture in Auschwitz titled The Evidence Room.
