A new hotel opened a few months ago in the middle of the increasingly competitive hotel landscape of Toronto, and given the fact that there is such competition now each new property, if they are to flourish, must offer guests an experience that is unique both in substance and in atmosphere. The new Shangri-La Hotel Toronto is the new jewel in Toronto’s hotel crown, and when it comes to substance and atmosphere you will be hard pressed to find either in greater evidence anywhere else in town.
Ontario is a beautiful place in the winter time, and Taboo Resort in the Muskoka area, near Gravenhurst, Ontario, is taking full advantage of that fact after recent renovations, and they are now promoting the destination as a year-round getaway while offering a new winter stay deal, and a holiday-themed package.

The Drake Hotel is celebrating summer with style as they launch their unique take on the traditional summer fairground on Queen Street West in Toronto. Dubbed Drakeland, the special summer-long event includes an art exhibit, hotel packages, parties, and a fresh menu to celebrate the season.
As often as I can, I head to New Brunswick to be with my family, but I’ll be the first to admit that it’s no as often as I would like.

For many years, the Sutton Place Hotel was one of Toronto’s hottest properties, hosting a multitude of stars, celebrities, and special events.

Planning a wedding can be a lot of a fun, but of course it’s a daunting task for any couple, no matter if you’re inviting 60 or 600 people.
