Le Germain Hotel

Located in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district, Le Germain Hotel — part of a Canadian chain whose owners are Quebecois — is a boutique property offering a fashionable and comfortable base to from which to explore the city. Boasting contemporary architecture, Le Germain has a large two-level lobby and an open-air concept. There are over 120 modern rooms, as well as a restaurant, bar and gym. It doesn’t have the most prepossessing of exteriors, but inside you quickly become aware that you’re in a fiercely modern, elegant hotel that’s even better situated than it first seems.

Rooms

Rooms are very dark with masculine décor (dark wood and leather chairs) and unusual modern art pieces and sculpture on the walls. Bathrooms are small but very minimalist and sleek with Molton Brown toiletries and rainfall showers. Rooms go from Classic to Signature and Prestige rooms, and there are several suites. All rooms have a safe, mini-bar, desk, Bose stereo with CD player, and a Nespresso coffee machine.

Location

Tucked away on a quiet side street, it’s easy to forget that you’re staying in the heart of the city’s entertainment district, within walking distance of performance venues as well as the CN Tower and the waterfront. The street receives little through-traffic, and a few steps from the hotel — on the same street, in fact — you’ll find Second City, Toronto’s leading improvised comedy venue.

Food and drink

A continental breakfast is included with every stay, and there’s an in-house restaurant, bar and cafe called Victor. It serves hearty North American classics as well as more exotic offerings. It’s possible to enjoy evening cocktails and other drinks on the roof terrace.

Facilities and activities

The hotel has a pleasant roof terrace which offers a small amount of outside space in which to relax and admire close-up views of the CN Tower. Next door, there’s a small gym and (for something even more novel), a putting green. Just off the lobby is an inviting library with slouchy chairs you can relax in with a coffee.

Accessibility

The hotel is accessible at street level but please note that there are steps in other parts of the property.

Our opinion

This is one stylish property: style and design emanate from the snug, open library to the rooms, each featuring pieces by local artists. Its location is also enviable, slotted down a quiet side street in Toronto’s central entertainment district .
