1 Hotel Toronto Has A Fancy Rooftop Patio & These First Look Photos Will Make You Want A Vacation

A brand new spot for boozy drinks, dining, and sky-scraping views is now open in Toronto, and it's like a mini-vacation.

1 Hotel Toronto is a nature-focused luxury venue that's making its Canadian debut on Wednesday, August 4.

Located in the heart of King West Village, the new getaway spot boasts 112 rooms, five restaurants and entertainment concepts, a rooftop terrace, and more.

The hotel is all about the environment and sustainability, and 2021 trees are being planted around Toronto in celebration of the grand opening.

Despite being in a busy city, the venue really does feel like a nature escape. Plants and greenery decorate both the outside and interior of the place so you can get all those lost-in-the-woods vibes.

You can step into a leafy paradise at the Garden Pavillion, located just outside of the hotel. The serene little spot has more than 40 fruits and vegetables, which are used in many restaurant dishes, and the area can sit up to 40 people. A bee hotel is nestled amongst the greenery since even insects need a vacation sometimes.
