Templar HotelEdit profile
Located in the centre of the city's creative neighbourhood, near the Metro Toronto Convention Center, the eight-storey glass and aluminium Templar Hotel features a modern art-filled lobby and elegant interiors by Toronto-based designer Del Terrelonge, who co-founded the hotel with his real estate development partner John Wee Tom. All 27 suites feature teak and stone inlay flooring and floor-to- ceiling windows. The Spa Suite has direct access to the Onsen spa, which offers Japanese water-based treatments and has a swimming pool with a transparent base (you can look up through it from the hotel lounge). The Monk Kitchen restaurant serves up international cuisine, while the rooftop bar offers city and Lake Ontario views. The hotel's airport shuttle – a Porsche Panamera – is another draw.
