With design led by Toronto-based Studio Munge, the 184-key hotel celebrates the best of the neighbourhood through thoughtful and authentic design. As the first Canopy by Hilton in Canada, the hotel's interior has an invigorating vibe, pulling in elements from Toronto's urban cityscape. Canopy Central, the hotel lobby, welcomes guests with layered interiors, curved edges and organic motifs complemented by an impressive local art collection.

The Canopy by Hilton Toronto Yorkville, a boutique hotel with a bold personality, has risen in Toronto's most prominent neighbourhoods. Located at 387 Bloor Street East, just east of the actual neighbourhood it brands itself as being in, the vibrant hotel is part of a global chain positioned as a "boutique lifestyle" brand under the Hilton umbrella.


For dining options at the hotel, guests can choose between Día, and Virtu Café & Provisions. The luxe hotel restaurant, Día, serves as a gathering place to enjoy seasonal fare, eclectic wines and spirits. The restaurant has ample plush seating and tables, decorated in shades of emerald greens, gold, and greys, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a bustling Bloor Street East and Rosedale Valley. Striking design elements catch the eye, including ornate light fixtures and a triple-sided fireplace with curved edges warming up the space. Engaged with the street, Virtu is an all-day café that offers a purposefully sourced array of fine foods and provisions.


In a nod to its unique location between bustling Yorkville and forested Rosedale, the property pairs oak features with copper accents to highlight the unique connection between nature and cosmopolitan life. "Just-Right" guestrooms also incorporate the brand's iconic canopy beds, expressed in light oak wood, that add a natural and authentic touch to the refined design. Mismatched nightstands designed by Alessandro Munge add a warm sense of eclecticism, while custom-designed rugs donate texture and softness to the space. The rooms are thoughtfully designed without sacrificing comfort: spacious layouts house king or queen beds with gel memory foam mattresses, large windows with blackout curtains, a lounge and work area, and a bright bathroom.

Common areas

The ground floor lobby is separated from the café by modernist screens with copper mesh inserts. A bespoke burnt orange rug grounds the room, while white oak wood panelling adds a touch of elegance. On the second floor, guests are greeted by an informal and approachable desk, which sets the tone for a relaxed and welcoming stay. They also have a retail boutique stocked with locally sourced wares and souvenirs, including prints and artwork with Toronto-inspired motifs. For those looking to stay fit during their stay, there is a wellness centre on the third floor with yoga and fitness rooms featuring state-of-the-art equipment. If you need a larger place to work, the hotel has over 3,451 square feet of glass-enclosed meeting space and collaborative work sections.
