Cool meets chic boutique in The Drake Hotel, Toronto.
Hip, elegant and fun, this hotel stands out as being one of the coolest hotspots in Toronto, without the pretentious price tag. The quirky colorful and urban rustic decor of the hotel provides a warm contrast to the colder climate of Canada in winter months. Dating from 1890 and featuring contemporary art collections and exhibitions, this trendy boutique hotel is 3 km from the Art Gallery of Ontario and 4 km from CN Tower. The surrounding area itself is full of wonderful local shops, restaurants and cafes.
Each room is individually decorated, with eclectic features, modern artwork and hardwood floors. Simple in size, yet very practical, they are the perfect crash pad for any business traveler or fly-though-town visitor. The Drake’s attention to detail is shown in your fully stocked bar, gifted champagne on arrival and a custom doll on each bed; providing a home away from home sort of feel.
The hotel is known for its great dining options include a hip cafe and a private dining room. There’s also a nightclub, a rooftop patio bar and a sleek bar/lounge that hosts cooking competitions, as well as live music events. The food and drink in all is exceptional; stay for brunch, dinner or just their tantalizing craft cocktails. When you have had your fill, nip over The Drake General Store, filled with all sorts of fun and fabulous trinkets to take home.
The Drake is an experience in itself, a true little piece of curious magic planted right in the heart of Toronto.
