Key selling points: Bringing a touch of the wild to Toronto, this suite is akin to a polished forest, with zebra stripe and foliage prints, dark wood floors, leather seating, and interpretive artwork detailing natural elements, while commanding views of Royal Ontario Museum’s Michael Lee Chin Crystal and CN Tower celebrate the urban jungle beyond.
Ideal for entertaining, the space, including the study and dining area that seats eight, can accommodate up to 35 guests.
Standout service: After a guest said she couldn’t find her favorite hot sauce in the city, a staff member bought it from a store that carried the product and delivered it to the guest.
