If you're looking for a rooftop patio to hit up this summer, then Toronto is the place to be.
Expedia just revealed the eight best hotel rooftop bars and patios in Canada according to guest ratings, and three Toronto spots made the cut, with one even ranking top of the list.
The ratings are based on positive global traveller reviews from 2019, as 2020 didn't offer much opportunity for going out, so next time you're in the mood for dinner with a view, you might want to visit one of these hotels.
The Broadview Hotel
Address: 106 Broadview Ave., Toronto, ON
Why You Need To Go: The Rooftop at the Broadview Hotel made number eight on the list, and you'll get views of the skyline and Don River from this spot. You can indulge in international dishes on the spacious terrace and sip cocktails while gazing over the city.
Address: 44th Floor, 80 Blue Jays Way, Toronto, ON
Why You Need To Go: Coming in at number six, the Bisha Hotel's KŌST is located on the 44th floor, so you'll get all the city views. It's full of California coastline vibes and has a towering infinity pool for guests to swim in. The venue offers breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner, as well as a weekend brunch.
Why You Need To Go: This hotel's three-level rooftop patio is the highest ranked spot in the country, and with its soaring views of the city, it's easy to see why. The Falcon SkyBar gazes out across Lake Ontario and even has a pool to cool off in. This season, the SkyBar has been transformed into Summer House and you can find all sorts of events, special menu items, and more at this warm-weather oasis.
As beautiful as the inside is, you'd probably want to spend all your time outdoors by the pool or lounging in the hot tub. The gazebo looks as though it belongs to Monet himself, and it sits upon a large turquoise pond.
Situated on a spring-fed pond away from the home, you'll discover a secluded Muskoka cottage with three bedrooms and a grand stone fireplace so you could have a mini-vacay without leaving the property.
