Staycation Toronto: Hotel X, An urban getaway

This new Toronto hotel at lakeshore and Exhibition Place is a gargantuan property, where you can relax, dine, and workout to your heart’s content.

Spanning three buildings on what used to be a parking space at the Exhibition Place, Hotel X Toronto has turned into 404-room luxe hotel, dining and sporting complex launched by the Library Hotel Collection and famed Hotelier Henry Kallan of Aria Hotel Budapest.

 

The hotel, designed by architects Stephen B. Jacobs and Andi Pepper, created a lobby space that incorporates dark chairs, plush rugs and black-and-white geometric designs; a strong welcome to Hotel X.

Inside the rooms are clean whites and comfortable lines. Call down to concierge to request a bath bomb from Saje Wellness, which is delivered straight to your room.

Designers added in pops of colour with orange statement chairs and scenic paintings. The beds envelop you, ensuring rest before a day of sporting ahead.

The most notable amenity of Hotel X is its 90,000-square-foot sports facility and club area, which includes and Olympic-sized pool, squash area, cycling studio, and indoor tennis courts. Oh my!

Head over to the Flacon SkyBar located on the 28th floor for floor-to-ceiling views of the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario.

Hotel guest can relax on the rooftop pool, while taking in the views.
