Entertainment District Hotels
188 University Ave., Entertainment District
Infused with a distinct Eastern aesthetic, the Shangri-La manages to feel personable despite its size. Located in the heart of downtown—just next door to the Toronto outpost of Soho House—you're right in the center of the city's bustle. The accommodations are classically luxurious with huge bathrooms, high thread-count sheets, and floor-to-ceiling windows. A real draw is the hotel's Miraj Hammam by Caudalie spa which fuses traditional hammam-style treatments with Caudalie's signature vinotherapy. A huge benefit of staying at the hotel is its proximity to David Chang's Momofuku empire downstairs. Choose from one of four restaurants, including Chang's signature Noodle Bar and hit up Milk Bar Bakery for dessert.
Soho House Toronto
192 W. Adelaide St., Entertainment District
The Toronto outpost of Soho House is in a three story, 1830's Georgian building—referred to by locals as the Bishop’s Block—and perfectly embodies the intimate, clubby vibe for which the Soho House group is best known. Conveniently adjacent to the Shangri-La Hotel, members can partake in the luxurious pool and gym facilities next door—if they can peel themselves away from the warm familiarity of the clubhouse. The interior is eclectic but sophisticated, the cool mint drawing room is punctuated with overstuffed sofas, a roaring fireplace, and wood-paneling—it's the perfect spot to tuck in for an afternoon.
