The DNA: Offering a sustainable luxury hotel experience, at 1 Hotels everything evolves around nature. At the Toronto outpost, Lake Ontario, and its muted colors, was a huge source of inspiration. The reception desk features a desk made from granite and limestone boulders, while maple trees and local foliage lead to a stone wall with timber-like striations carved by glacial activity along the nearby Eramosa River. Local woodworking studio Just Be Woodsy, which has exclusive rights to collecting fallen trees around Toronto, made public area and guest room furnishings from trunks Rockwell hand-selected in their lumber yard. Also, the hotel cultivates 3,300 plants.
Suite-Me-Up: Extremely spacious the Birch House two bedroom Suite (there is also a smaller version) sleeps six and offers one king bed and two queen beds, with a separate living room, dining area, and full kitchen.
