If you were watching “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and wishing you could stay somewhere similar, there’s a nearby alternative. The Grand Hotel & Suites provides that old-world charm with a contemporary twist right in downtown Toronto.

The Grand Hotel used to be the headquarters for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and it was renovated in 2000 to create 177 spacious guest suites. It's managed to keep its European art-deco style intact with the extensive indoor pool, and always open Parisian rooftop garden.

The hotel is located just six minutes away from Yonge-Dundas Square, which is handy if you want to do a bit of shopping and dining nearby.

If you’re looking for a staycation spot away from the stress and responsibilities of home, then The Grand Hotel is a relaxing atmosphere to unwind. The Grand Spa offers massages, facials and mani-pedis, all perfect to spoil yourself.

Accommodations range from luxurious two-story lofts, to suites with private terraces, marble washrooms or granite kitchens. Each of these exclusive suites contains spacious rooms, two TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and a full breakfast buffet. 

Stays vary in price per night, ranging approximately from the Grand Deluxe room, $399, to the more spacious Ambassador Suite, $829.

Summer is often peak season but that doesn’t mean you should miss out on scooping up the best deals. Currently, the hotel is partnered with the Royal Ontario Museum and Ripley's Aquarium of Canada so that families and couples can enjoy these venues together.  These deals alternate during the year, so you could easily catch a ballet performance in the winter or stay for Toronto Fashion Week.
