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.

The Annex Café and Wine Bar


Hours of operation:

Café:  8am — 4pm ( everyday )

Come get your morning coffee fix with beans from Reunion Island Coffee and if you need a bite, try our range of wonderful pastries courtesy of the Drake Commissary. Grab something to go or settle in and tap into our lightning fast wifi.

At night, this cushy spot gets even more intimate. Featuring mouthwatering cocktails, and a wine list curated by a local sommelier featuring natural and biodynamic wines.

The Annex Commons

These pleasures aren't so guilty. Thanks to a menu created and executed by Big Trouble Pizza, you can enjoy one of best pies Toronto has to offer.

Pair your food with a glass of wine, beer or a cocktail.  Don't sweat it, if you're in a rush, you can place your order ahead of time and grab some of the city's best offerings to go. 

In light of the evolving COVID-19 scenario, we have made the decision to temporarily close The Annex hotel in its entirety, effective immediately.

The health and safety of both our guests and staff is, and always will be, our first priority. 

From its inception and opening in 2018, The Annex was set-up as a next generation hotel, with technology at our core. Despite being high-tech and low touch, we are part of the global travel industry, and as such, have an important role to play.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward – in the not-too-distant future – to welcoming you back to The Annex, your forever local second home. 

Sadly, for now, we’ll distance ourselves…The Annex Team
