“We’re excited to open Canada’s very first Canopy by Hilton hotel in Toronto. With its premium location, the hotel will bring a unique blend of sophistication, convenience and urban living,” said Reetu Gupta, ambassadress, The Gupta Group and Easton’s Group of Hotels. “Nestled between the picturesque Yorkville neighbourhood and the wooded Rosedale neighbourhood, Canopy Toronto Yorkville offers guests an exciting new way to experience the city.”

With design led by Studio Munge, the hotel celebrates the best of the neighbourhoods it straddles through thoughtful and authentic design.

Día offers a variety of dishes including memorable cheeses, Roman-style pizza and more. Guests and locals can also enjoy the restaurant’s signature wine program and sample libations as a part of Canopy’s bespoke evening tastings. Virtu Café & Provisions, the hotel’s all-day café, is slated to open in a few months. It will serve purposefully sourced, locally inspired dishes.
