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 Lobby


Hours of operation:

Café: 8am — 4pm (every day)

Wine Bar: 4pm — Late (every day)

Come get your morning coffee fix with beans from Reunion Island Coffee and if you're hungry, try our balanced range of breakfast offerings in collaboration with local gurus The Tempered Room and Ripe Nutrition. Grab something to go or settle in and tap into our lightning fast wifi.

At night, this cushy spot gets even more intimate. With a carefully crafted menu of shareable plates, mouthwatering cocktails, and a wine list courtesy of our in-house sommelier, featuring natural and biodynamic wines – this is where to refine your palate.

The Annex Commons


Hours of operation:

6pm — Midnight (weekdays, including Sunday)

6pm — 2am (Friday & Saturday)

Welcome to fast casual dining. At the Commons, you can enjoy some of your all-time favourites, including pizza, fried chicken and tacos, from two of the city's best; newcomer Big Trouble Pizza and the king of the taqueria, Seven Lives Tacos.

Pair your food with a bottle of wine or a round of cocktails and sit back and enjoy this new, no nonsense style of dining. And if you're in a rush, don't sweat it, you can place your order ahead of time and grab some of the city's best offerings to go. As it happens, the Commons isn't quite so common.
