I don’t know about you, but I could totally use a vacation right now. Here’s the thing, I’d rather not break the bank, and I’m sure a few of you can agree with me on that. So rather than go through the hassle of finding a trip that’s not costly, packing and then spending hours on a flight, I thought it would be best to enjoy a few days in the city and plan out a little stay-cation right here in Toronto. Something cozy but luxe and that won’t have me forking over an arm and a leg.
When it comes to what you can do during your stay-cation, the options are endless. However, finding the right place to stay at can be a bit difficult – which is why I’ve done the work for you and have scouted all Toronto’s best hotels and Airbnb’s, and have narrowed it down to five favourite places to plan your next stay-cation.
Looking for a place where you can live like royalty and not break the bank? Well then the Omni King Edward Hotel is just the place you’re looking for! With over 300 rooms and rates starting at $249, guests enjoy old-world charm while indulging in the hotel’s amenities like their spa, royal club lounge, traditional afternoon tea and more!
For those looking for an upscale escape, the Anndore House may be the right fit for you as it’s the perfect get-away to have a girls-night or to just treat yourself. Located near Yorkville, you’ll have plenty of options on where to shop, or if you’re more in the mood to indulge in art and culture, the Royal Ontario Museum is just a 10-minute walk away!
This one is a pricier option for those looking to really indulge in their stay-cation, the Royal York Fairmont Hotel is one of Toronto’s top luxury hotels. Guests primarily stay here to take part in the luxe services offered by the fairmont, including their prestigious spa.
Live in luxury without spending hundreds. This condo is located right in the heart of Toronto with views of the CN Tower just outside your window. Whether you decide to spend your time exploring the streets of Toronto or would rather prefer a cozier option by staying in, this condo will have you falling in love with the city all over again.
This one is for those of you who are in dire need of some ‘me time’ – this beautiful studio is home to an 11 inch cedar high-ceiling and it even comes with its own sauna. Yes, that’s right, there’s a sauna in the studio. The only negative is that there is no kitchen in the actual studio, however, since this is a staycation, you may as well treat yourself all the way and just order in!
