This month we shine a light on Toronto. 

In a previous blog, we shared our best neighbourhoods for business travelers, so today we’d like to share some great venues and places to go, whether you’re here for business, leisure or indeed a pleasure trip. We’ve got you covered.

Firstly let’s visit the Harbourfront. For amazing views why not try the 360 Restaurant with, yes you’ve guessed it, 360 revolving views of the harbour! It’s situated in the CN Tower and offer regional cuisine and a truly amazing selection of wines. 

The CN Tower also has several meeting rooms, a cinema and the LookOut level space which has floor to ceiling windows for your guests to fully admire the sparkling lights of the city. Making it a unique place to hold an event.

If you’re after a low key treat with a harbour view, why not try The Fix Ice Cream bar. Their menu features signature creations like Campfire, for your s’more fix and Like a Sir for you peanut lovers. This place is unique and a must-visit for Ice cream lovers.

Where to stay in Toronto

The Westin Harbour Castle Hotel is the perfect place to stay to watch the sun go down on the harbour. They have meeting & conference facilities making it an excellent choice for your next event. You’re right in the centre of all the exciting and cultural activities that take place along the harbourfront. 

The Broadview Hotel is a boutique that is brimming with originality. It has a rich history in the East End of Toronto. Their rooms offer locally sourced minibar and bathroom products, each room has its own individual twist with curated artwork and design. Some even have an enclosed terrace. For that Wow Factor, you can enjoy a cold beer on the exclusive Rooftop bar for stunning views of the Toronto Skyline and the Don River. 

For the most luxurious hotel in Toronto, that has to be the Shangri-La Hotel  . It’s located in the centre of downtown in one of Toronto’s tallest buildings. 

The decor is traditionally Asian, they have a mixture of rooms and suites. Beautiful marble bathrooms with walk-in showers and separate deep soaking bathtub, just the ticket after a busy day of meetings. If you’re traveling with loved ones, why not treat yourselves to elegant Afternoon tea with Veuve Cliquot champagne in the Lobby Lounge. 

Let’s talk food in Toronto

Finding a great restaurant is important. Whether it’s to entertain clients, relax with colleagues after a busy day at the conference centre or a quiet solo dinner, a bad choice will spoil the evening.

For a relaxed meal, you can try Stelvio  It’s an authentic Italian restaurant which is pretty famous in Toronto. Relax with pasta and a bold glass of red to wind down solo. 

If you miss the feeling of home when traveling then Richmond Station is the palace to go. It’s owned by the Top Chef Canada winner and is located in the vibrant dining community of downtown Toronto. The restaurant focuses on creating great dishes with the best ingredients for a relaxed, friendly experience. 

Perhaps you want to impress your clients with your choice. For this, I’d recommend you try the Alo Restaurant. Located at the top of a heritage building, Alo has contemporary French food on the menu along with blind, multi-course tasting menus. Nothing less than perfect is expected from the Michelin starred Chef that runs the kitchen. Also, don’t forget to check our top 5 of the best restaurants for client lunches in Toronto!
