What is a historic hotel like in Toronto?
A historic hotel gives guests a chance to stay in a building that has been officially recognized with a national historic designation.

These types of hotels in Toronto typically retain original characteristics like traditional architecture and period features in their communal spaces or guestrooms.
What is the difference between a historic hotel and a heritage hotel?
These are quite similar. “Historic hotel” is more commonly used in the U.S., while you’ll often hear “heritage hotel” in Asia and Europe. Historic hotels tend to focus on the physical building and architecture. Mainly heritage hotels draw meaning from the place’s cultural value and how it inspired the surrounding community.
Do historic hotels in Toronto have modern facilities?
Yes, efforts are made to preserve treasured traditions and historic facades, but interiors include modern conveniences and safety features. Tourists who book a stay should expect the popular amenities you’d find in a hotel such as private rooms with updated bathroom facilities, heating and air conditioning, and free and fast Internet. Booking a historic hotel in Toronto doesn’t mean you will stay in a place that’s rundown or uncomfortable for guests.
