Find out more about Financial District

It may be only a few blocks wide, but Toronto's Financial District packs a powerful punch, both visually and economically. Its forest of colorful towers has helped give Toronto the highest concentration of high rises in North America, while the district's financial power has helped launch Toronto into the world's top 10 economically powerful cities. It's not only about high finance here, though. The Financial District is crammed with galleries, theaters, and museums, and also has the world's largest underground shopping complex.

Hotels in the Financial District

As you might expect in a district lauded for its high-rise extravagance, most hotels in Toronto's Financial District are found in its shiny new towers. One exception is the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, a 4-star hotel built in the 1930s whose glamorous style is only outdone by its size. It has over 1,300 guestrooms, as well as a luxury health club, indoor pool, and spa. The 5-star Shangri-la Hotel Toronto, by contrast, is a thoroughly contemporary hotel housed in a 66-story tower, highly praised for its great views, fantastic dining, and outstanding service. Another upscale Financial District hotel is the Hilton Toronto, noted for its business center and excellent meeting facilities.

And don't forget Yonge Street, running along the district's east side, known as Toronto's premier shopping promenade.
