6. Westin Harbour Castle

The Westin Harbour Castle on the waterfront is a really nice Marriott Bonvoy hotel choice, particularly in the summer, with nice views out over the lake. This is probably the nicest mid-range Marriott Bonvoy hotel in Toronto overall, but it is a walk or uber from Toronto’s main attractions.

While the location is slightly remote for the main attractions, the harbourfront is a hive of activity, the pool is lovely, and there is a basketball hoop. If you like baseball, you may run into ballplayers because the hotel is used for visiting MLB teams. In the winter, you might spot an NHL player. If you are a platinum Marriott Bonvoy member, you can upgrade to the main breakfast buffet for around $10 USD, which is very good, but there is no club lounge at this hotel.

The Westin Harbour Castle is part of the Marriott Bonvoy scheme and is a category 5 property costing, on average, 35,000 Bonvoy rewards points per night.

7. Delta Toronto

The Delta Toronto is probably the nicest mid-range Marriott Bonvoy hotel in Toronto for hotel quality and location. It has great staff, a decent restaurant in the hotel, and super rooms. Request one with a view like the corner rooms as they have a big tub that looks out over the lake. It also has a very good club lounge with a complimentary buffet breakfast and great top floor views of the city.

The Delta Toronto is part of the Marriott Bonvoy scheme and is a category 5 property costing, on average, 35,000 Bonvoy rewards points per night.

9. Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel is situated in the center of the city in the Financial and Entertainment Districts, so there are lots nearby within very easy walking distance. This hotel is particularly good for older kids and teenagers as it is connected to the Eaton Centre (large shopping center) with lots of clubs and cafes nearby.

This 4-star hotel offers business travelers an ideal location near the Convention Centre and local corporate offices. The Eaton Centre to CN Tower are within easy reach, and the subway is also close at hand for added convenience.

Updated guest rooms feature city views, upscale amenities, and plush bedding. Business travelers and families will enjoy the heated outdoor pool and the 24-hour fitness center. The restaurant and cafe offer freshly-prepared coffee and treats to take along on your adventures.

Platinum Elite Titanium Elite Bonvoy members get access to this Sheraton club lounge for member plus one guest. We love this lounge because of the incredible view. The breakfast here is a cold breakfast, but there is enough to keep you going, including cereal, toast, fruit, and pastries. No warm dishes though, this is very continental. In the evening, you get canapes along with alcoholic drinks for a fee, but again, the food is very standard fare for a Sheraton hotel and less than impressive.

10. Hilton Toronto

Located in Toronto’s downtown, the Hilton Toronto is a 10-minute walk from all the city has to offer. Whether your passion is the arts, sports, the hotel is just a stroll from major museums, art galleries, sports arenas, and shopping. For business travelers, the Hilton Toronto is in the heart of Toronto’s financial district and walking distance from the Metro Toronto Convention Center and all major office towers.

The Hilton Toronto is part of the Hilton Honours loyalty scheme and costs, on average, 60,000 Bonvoy rewards points per night.

11. The Westin Prince

The Westin Prince is a nice modern and clean hotel situated on a fairly large piece of landscaped park surrounded by green woodland, but there is nothing of interest nearby unless you have a car and can drive and just use the hotel as a base. There are no decent public transport links nearby this hotel either.

If you have a car, you can easily get to downtown Toronto, nearby business parks, and local attractions, including the Ontario Science Centre, Botanical Gardens, Toronto Zoo, and Canada’s Wonderland.

This is a decent, clean, and Modern Marriott Bonvoy property with an outdoor heated pool, lighted tennis court, and 24-hour fitness center but no club lounge.

The Westin Prince is part of the Marriott Bonvoy scheme and is a category 4 property costing, on average, 25,000 Bonvoy rewards points per night.

This 3.5-star award-winning hotel is a short drive from downtown Toronto and is located minutes from local attractions like Canada’s Wonderland and the Ontario Science Centre. They have a Spa and an indoor pool, but the main attraction is the massive conference center, which means this hotel is mainly used for business.

14. Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport

The 12-story Crowne Plaza Toronto Airport is a 473-room hotel, located 2 miles from YYZ, which serves as a major domestic, transborder, and international hub for Air Canada and there is a shuttle to and from the airport. Downtown Toronto is 20 minutes away from the hotel.

The hotel also has a fitness center with elliptical machines, a treadmill, free weights, and a bike along with an indoor pool.

This hotel is cheap but only really a suitable base for the airport. It has a club lounge, which is fairly vanilla and nothing special and can be booked on IGH rewards. This club lounge and hotel is the worst of the hotels in this best club lounge listing. There are also Holiday Inn and Holiday I and Holiday Inn Express to spend your IHG points on if you prefer.
