The Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto is the first property of the leading luxury chain to bring distinctive Asian hospitality to Canada�s largest metropolis. The hotel, in the heart of Toronto, delivers the best of Asian traditions in an original, contemporary way. Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto has received two accolades by the prestigious American magazine, Cond� Nast Traveler�s �Hot List: Best New Hotels 2013� as well as being listed as having one of the �World�s most beautiful pools�. Inspired by the mythical land in the novel Lost Horizon, the name Shangri-La conveys the serenity for which its properties are famed worldwide. Since 1971, Shangri-La has encompassed the unique characteristics of Asian hospitality: respect, humility, courtesy, helpfulness and sincerity. Guests entering the hotel are greeted with Asian touches. A giant sculpture from one of China's best-known contemporary artists, Zhang Huan, sets the stage memorably, as do the lobby�s huge calligraphy paintings. The 202 luxury guest rooms are among the largest in Canada and feature Asian-inspired decorations including raw-silk wall coverings and replicas of antique Chinese chairs. The Eastern theme extends to the hotel�s dining and leisure options. Guests can experience Bosk, the hotel�s signature restaurant with Asian-inspired touches; Momofuku restaurant and bar by famed New York chef David Chang; and the Lobby Lounge, which offers dim sum. The MirajHammam Spa brings the exotic traditions of the Middle East to Toronto with its authentic treatments.
