In the Financial District, near Union Station and blocks from many popular sites
Located in Toronto's Financial District, and blocks away from the Distillery District and Entertainment District, The SoHo Metropolitan sits near popular sites such as the CN Tower, one of the world's tallest buildings with an observation deck overlooking the city, and the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team.
Once an industrial park, Toronto's Entertainment District is now a bustling home to nightclubs, and theaters, such as Roy Thomson Hall where the Toronto Symphony Orchestra performs, and Rogers Centre, the Blue Jays' stadium. The nearby Financial District is composed of skyscrapers housing law firms, corporate headquarters, and offices, and 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 recently came out of a redevelopment that included the institution of numerous shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
The SoHo Metropolitan (or "SoHo Met") is a luxury boutique property that's well-suited for couples and business travelers alike. The 91 chic, modern rooms, decoarted with blond wood and bold contemporary art , have contemporary luxuries such as large flat-screen TVs, Italian linens, and a convenient control system that allows guests to set temperature, lighting, and the drapes without leaving bed. Large bathrooms with soaking tubs, walk-in showers, heated bathroom floors, and spacious changing areas come standard, and guests can get even more space and luxury in the suites and penthouse. The sedate, relaxing atmosphere has attracted celebrity guests such as Lady Gaga and Beyonce. If you're looking for a livelier scene with comparable luxury, consider the nearby Thompson Toronto.
