The Bellair Suite
Key selling points: Updated old-world glamour exudes from every inch of this accommodation, perhaps inspired by the stately Victorian homes on Hazelton Avenue visible from the suite’s two spacious balconies.
French doors, marble floors, and artwork by contemporary Canadian artists embellish a pair of lounges and the dining space—capable of seating up to 10—which are outfitted with custom furnishings. The avant-garde elegance extends to the two dressing rooms adorned with zebrawood floors and floor-to-ceiling mirrors.
Standout service: For an orthodox Jewish guest, the hotel provided a kosher menu in the guest’s suite.
