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.

Breathing Room. Wiggle Room. Whatever-You-Want Room.

Attentive design and unparalleled comfort is what you can expect at the Annex. Each of our rooms is brimming with natural light and features unique local finds. It's our own little way of introducing you to Toronto's finest makers and doers.

Friends & Neighbours

Young and vibrant. Mythic and grounded. The Annex is an authentic blend of old and new. It’s where trends are born and ideas run free.
Let’s call it, perfectly imperfect.
