A night @ SOHO Metropolitan Hotel

For the ultimate in indulgence, the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel in Toronto's famous entertainment district is the place to be. 
On my most recent work trip to Toronto,  I had the pleasure of staying at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel. If you are not familiar with this establishment, it is a 92-room ultra-luxury boutique hotel located in Toronto’s famous Entertainment District.
Guests entering the Soho Metropolitan Hotel should look up – there is an original  Dale Chihuly glass sculpture suspended above the ceiling . This custom installation is comprised of 80  hand-blown glass discs of dazzling colours. serves as an symbol of the vibrant lifestyle of the SoHo Met and its surroundings. Did I mention that it's also a poke stop? Or so I hear from a friend...

Upon arrival, we were greeted with such a warm welcome by the friendliest of staff and concierge-  check-in was a breeze!
In our room, another sweet welcome ( literally) was waiting as well. Thank you Sen5es café for the lovely chocolates.
Our room was a delight; the bed was large and comfortable with crisp white linen. Other cool features include a full mini and automatic drapes that open and close with the flick of a switch. Soho Met is no cookie cutter hotel- even the do not disturb sign is switched on and off with a click of a button.
 The fashionista in me was so amazed by the spacious walk-in closet! With all the storage space in the bathroom and closet, I could comfortably move in to this space. 
The bathroom is another wonder in the room.  It is marble covered with heated floors ( oh how I need those for cold mornings in my flat !!) , a large bathtub and a standing shower with two heads. The toiletries by Molton Brown London were the cherry on top.

After a well deserved bath after a long work day, it was time to unwind and the room was perfect for that. The hotel is centrally located near the Rogers Centre, Chinatown, the Club District and the bars and restaurants on King West so there's lots to for fun but we were so tired and opted for a causal night in. We ate at Wahlburgers Canada, the gourmet burger joint from celebrity siblings Mark and Donnie Wahlberg. The restaurant is connected to the hotel which was a huge plus and their menu is included in the room service menu!

The next morning, I woke up to find my newspaper of choice ( I asked for the The New York Times) outside our room. I got ready listening to music from the great LG sound system in the room and while sipping on some delicious coffee from the Keurig machine in the room. 
I had also sprayed some of Molton Brown's room fragrance in the room to relax.

It was time to check out breakfast at Sen5es café in the hotel lobby. Sen5es is a very contemporary and bright space – high ceilings, long drapes and large lamps hovering from the ceiling- a very classy establishment with a menu to match!
I ordered pancakes which were frankly too pretty to eat in my opinion! Nonetheless I indulged in those and showered them with syrup and in-house raspberry jam. 

If you ever have more than one evening to play tourists around Soho Met, here are a few more ideas in the surrounding area:
-Movie at TIFF Bell Lightbox
- A stroll through Queen St West
- Vintage shopping at Kensington Market
-A Musical at Princess of Wales Theatre
-A game at the Rogers Centre
-Trip up the CN Tower

 We were lucky to get this view of the CN tower from the 7th floor of the hotel. 

Whether you are staying for just a weekend or weeks on end, you will quickly realize that one does more than stay at the SoHo Met ... one lives it! I can't wait to live the Soho Met experience again on my future trips to Toronto.
