If you live in one of the continent’s busiest and population-heavy urban centres, occasionally you are looking for a downtown oasis, a respite, where you can close the door on the noises and bustle, even if it’s only for a few days.

That’s what you will find at Toronto’s two downtown Hotel Le Germain locations – Mercer St., and in Maple Leaf Square. According to Le Germain Hotel Maple Leaf Square general manager Paul de La Durantaye: “Luxury is no longer in a lavish lifestyle or material. True luxury is time. Time for ourselves, time for people we love, time for doing the things that bring us joy.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Le Germain Hotel Toronto on Mercer St. features a newly minted, new concept Victor Restaurant, that’s creating buzz right now. The Le Germain Toronto Hotel Maple Leaf Square is located steps from the Air Canada Centre (great balconies to watch a Leafs or Raptors playoff game on the big screen along with fans down below!).

Both are ideal getaways for those in the downtown Toronto core looking for some getaway time. Look for a cool, relaxing aesthetic, great service, elite and true luxury – and steps to everything in the core.

The Maple Leaf Square hotel offers “Classic” and “Prestige” rooms for a quick stay (goose down duvets, feather pillows, comfortable chairs), plus “Signature Suites” with a closed-off living room, double vanity and separate bath and shower – ideal for a family vacation. The suites with private balconies have the aforementioned Maple Leaf Square views.

Le Germain on Mercer, in the heart of the city’s entertainment district, isn’t as modern and sleek as the Maple Leaf Square sibling, but is equally as luxurious, maybe a little warmer in its looks and feel. It offers up a similar menu of “Classic”, “Prestige” rooms, and a “Signature Suite” with a private terrace, with views of the CN Tower.
