Why Stay At Templar Hotel
A sleek, 27-room boutique hotel and spa in the heart of downtown Toronto, with a buzzy restaurant helmed by Canadian star chef Roberto Fracchioni.
Toronto's hotel scene is booming, and stylish properties are going above-and-beyond to stand out. Case in point: the new-in-2011 Templar Hotel, in the city's downtown entertainment district, which uses a slick Porsche Panamera for its airport shuttle. Inside, the chic suites have Poliform furnishings, silk duvets, and floor-to-ceiling windows; high-tech amenities include Apple TVs and in-room iPads. But we fell for the hotel's public spaces. The ceiling of the lobby offers views into the hotel's lap pool; at Monk Kitchen's communal tables, a hip, suit-and-tie crowd dines on chef Roberto Fracchioni's Italian creations (the menu changes every day); and on the first floor, graphic skateboards by artist-of-the-moment Damien Hirst are mounted on glass and concrete.
Although Monk Kitchen is open to the public during regular dinner service, hotel guests are invited to sit at the chef's table anytime; staff is on duty 24/7.
The Roy Thomson Hall concert venue is just two blocks from the hotel. The circular glass building houses the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and hosts screenings during the Toronto International Film Festival.
Arrive at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) which is approximately 17 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.348 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Where to Shop: Don't miss what Torontonians call "The Warehouse," a sprawling complex in a restored industrial building that's home to 140 artist studios. It's the place to pick up some of the best original art available for purchase.
