Markets, Music and Mistletoe! Toronto is full of festive activities during the holiday season. As part of our monthly Ways To Stay blog series, we’ve put together a glamourous getaway on Queen Street West during the holiday season (perfect for locals and travellers alike!)
Pick the Perfect Artist-Designed Hotel Room
All of our 37 rooms are kept cozy and warm all winter long. As an added bonus, guests can pick an aesthetic that makes their stay feel like warm winter getaway in the Canadian wilderness. Choose one of these rooms to add to the vibe of the season!
To make that stay in Sugarbush even sweeter, take advantage of our special holiday hotel rate! As a little extra something in your stocking we’re offering room rates starting from $199 over the holiday season. Use code WINTER to redeem this special offer!
Holiday Shopping on Queen West
Feel extra good about holiday gift-giving by supporting local makers. Queen Street West has dozens of beautiful shops featuring local products. Places like Made You Look Jewelry provide the perfect opportunity to get gifts that are unique to Toronto — beautiful pieces like this won’t be found online!
Get Creative with Sustainable Holiday Decor
The ethos of supporting local can easily be extended to holiday decor as well. Learn how to work with local branches and bows to create your own holiday wreaths at this exciting upcoming workshop by Plantbaby Studio!
Get Skating At One Of Our Local Rinks!
Is it even winter if you can’t go for a skate with a cup of hot chocolate? Luckily Toronto’s west end is full of rinks where you can do just that! Head up to the Bentway for a skate and a hang out at their rinkside Cafe/Bar.
Cozy Cocktails in the Cafe
Looking for something boozy? Finish off a day of holiday adventure with a hand-crafted cocktail in the Gladstone Cafe. These delicious cocktails have been carefully curated to fit the season. Plus if you book directly with the hotel you’ll get a complimentary welcome cocktail included in your stay!
