High Tech, Low Touch

From its inception, the annex has been set up to be a next-generation hotel. Our high tech, low touch approach gives you the peace of mind needed to enjoy your time with us. 

After checking in online, you are sent a building and unique room code. This means you can head straight to your room when you arrive. 

Our housekeeping staff use the best available practices and hospital-grade disinfectants after each guest. 

All “high touch” items have been removed from the rooms.

And like always, our host team is just a text away with anything you need. 

Welcome to the annex.

Welcome to the Neighbourhood

A street-level hotel made to feel like a home

Enjoy the comforts of home. Come live like a local.

Check-in ahead of time

First things first – check-in happens online. That means no front desk or bellhop. We send you a code to unlock your room and you’re on your way. Come 3pm, you can let yourself in and make yourself at home.

Experience familiar service

Who makes phone calls anymore? Our staff are a text message away. Anything you need will be looked after right away and if you miss us that much, we’d be happy to tell you about our city’s best secrets over a drink in the lobby.

Please help yourself

No phone means no wake-up calls. You’ve got an alarm on your phone for that. And if you need extra pillows, every floor has a self-serve closet full of them (as well as fresh towels, amenities and more).

Local collaborations

Experiencing local life is the best part of travel, so we brought the community to your doorstep. All of our spaces feature the work of hand-picked local artists, musicians, artisans, and chefs. Get to know them during your stay – they’re around.

Food & Drink

Eat, get some work done, drink, unwind. At the Annex, the living quarters are where you reconnect. Designed with both locals and nomads in mind, our main floor has two distinct spaces where curated menus bring you the best that Toronto has to offer.
