The Vibe: The décor is minimalist, in keeping with the youthful vibe, as is the service – if you need anything, don’t call, just text.
Area: The Annex, a surprisingly verdant downtown residential district near the University of Toronto. Spadina subway station is a 5-minute walk.
The DNA: Tucked away amongst the lowrise buildings of the Annex neighbourhood, lies a matte black jewel. The hotel that bears the name of its home community, dons an easily passable dark facade. However, the unassuming exterior houses a beautiful interior looking to become one of Toronto’s hotspots, drawing crowds from local and abroad. The hotel does not have a front desk, check-ins are done digitally. Instead, the lobby is used for events at night and as a workspace during the day.
Suite-Me-Up: There are no suites, but the two queen bed XL rooms offer plenty of space.
