In the heart of the Entertainment District, within walking distance of major tourist sites and restaurants
Located in Toronto's Entertainment District, and blocks away from the Financial District and the waterfront, Le Germain sits near popular sites like the CN Tower, which offers spectacular city views from its observation deck, and Rogers Centre, which is home to Canada's only Major League Baseball team.
Once an industrial park, Toronto's Entertainment District is now a bustling area filled with nightclubs, theaters, and music venues. Highlights include the Roy Thomson Hall, home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Film Festival, and the 12.7-acre Rogers Centre development that features the Toronto Blue Jays' stadium.
The nearby Financial District is composed of skyscrapers occupied by law firms, corporate headquarters, and offices, while the Distillery District is one of Toronto's historic gems. The district got its name from the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, formerly in operation in the area as the largest distillery in the world. Claiming the largest sample of Victorian-era architecture in North America, the Distillery District is a cultural hotspot that features numerous shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
This 122-room boutique hotel is centrally located in the heart of the Entertainment District. Large rooms come with contemporary decor and luxe amenities (like Bose stereos and Molton Brown toiletries), but the highlights are the stylish peek-a-boo showers and the comfy beds. The property boasts a bunch of great perks, including a rooftop terrace, an outdoor putting green, and free cappuccinos and continental breakfasts -- but there’s a loud nightclub open in the weekends across the street, and some rooms are showing signs of wear and tear.
