Sports capital, foodie favourite, cultural centre, Toronto is many things to many people. Cosy up with us in winter, or get out into the great outdoors in our glorious summers. Let us show you the best of our city, from markets to cycling routes and off-the beaten-path spots.
Live Out Your Haute Couture Dreams
Toronto is a fashion paradise, with a variety of vintage boutiques to luxury department stores and everything in between.
Immerse yourself in fashion culture at the Bata Shoe Museum, visit the Textile Museum of Canada, indulge in luxury shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue and Holt Renfrew or walk over to Queen Street to visit a variety of vintage or local boutiques showcasing the city's unqiue style.
For a little bit of history, stop by Shangri-La's Lobby Lounge to see a rotating collection of vintage couture dresses from legendary designers such as Versace, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and more.
Visit the Iconic CN Tower
Dominating the Toronto skyline, this easily-recognizable landmark sits just blocks away from the Shangri-La.
Standing at 553m, the CN Tower was once one of the world's tallest freestanding structures. Three observation decks unlock unforgettable views – even Niagara Falls can be seen on a clear day. There are floor-to-ceiling windows, glass floors, and an 'EdgeWalk' with no fence and no windows for true adventurists.
Having a meal at the revolving restaurant and riding one of the glass elevators is one of those things you just have to do when you're in Toronto!
Cycle Your Way Through the 6ix
When the weather warms up, hop on one of our signature Shangri-La bicycles and explore Toronto like a local.
Meant to mimic Shanghai bicycles of the 1940s with detachable baskets and traditional bells, these custom bikes are a fun and eco-friendly way to see the city.
If you're staying with us, you can take one out for a ride free of charge, and the concierge team will provide you with helmets and tire pumps and recommends routes.
Immerse Yourself in Arts and Culture
Sitting in the heart of Old Toronto, Shangri-La puts the best of arts, entertainment and culture at your fingertips.
You'll discover everything from the renowned National Ballet of Canada and The Toronto Theater to the famed Elgin & Winter Garden Theatre and the Frank Gehry–redesigned Art Gallery of Ontario all within walking distance.
Hockey fanatics will find their Mecca at the Hockey Hall of Fame, home of the world's largest collection of hockey memorabilia, while contemporary art-lovers will find solace at 401 Richmond and street art connoisseurs will treasure their time spent at Graffiti Alley.
Unleash Your Inner-Foodie
Pakistani, Persian, Portuguese; aboriginal and new fusion; fresh pasta in Little Italy, shawarmas in Greektown and dim sum in Chinatown - Toronto is an epicureans paradise.
The sensational St Lawrence Market has been a neighborhood meeting place for over two centuries, filled with fresh flavours from over 120 specialty food stalls and shops. True foodies will fall in love with Kensington Market, which is not actually a market but a walkable bohemian neighborhood that's packed with food from all over the world.
Tour an Urban Beehive
Shangri-La's third floor Garden Terrace is constantly buzzing with activity thanks to our B-Wall.
This urban beehive, built in partnership with Birks and Alvéole, is home to 50,000 honeybees and plays a crucial role in bringing more of these vital anthophilia back to the city to aid in pollination.
Ask the concierge team to arrange a private tour or take a piece of the B-Wall home with our exclusive line of honey, honey-infused beer and beeswax products, available for purchase at the hotel or at our online shop.
