Stepping into the lobby is like entering a chic contemporary design showroom.

TORONTO — Located minutes from the runway at Porter Air, in the heart of this city’s popular entertainment district, the Hôtel Le Germain is a boutique luxury property suited to both leisure and business travelers.

Stepping into the lobby from bustling Mercer Street is like entering a chic contemporary design showroom — in a good way. Sheer curtains, cascading two stories, add drama to a space filled with warm wood, leather, glass, and stainless steel.

The sleek design continues in the hotel’s 122 rooms and suites where large windows offer city views, wood platform beds are made up with fluffy goose-down duvets and feather pillows, photos by Toronto-based James Lahey adorn the walls, and a tile-and- glass shower (with blinds for the shy) occupies the center of the room. After a busy day the hotel is an oasis of calm.

A rooftop terrace (with putting green) opens in warm-weather months. Check online for packages based on romance, gastronomy, city life, and current events. Rates from $252 include complimentary breakfast, fitness facility, and Wi-Fi. Pet-friendly (add $30 per stay).
