Look way up and you may find Toronto’s favorite haunt for hot-to-trot 20-somethings. Located in one of the ten tallest buildings in Toronto, the Shangri La Hotel is right out of an episode of Mad Men, channeling a time when paneling was dark wood, scotch was on the rocks and everyone was in business-casual (for real, even the hotel bar has a dress code). Designed by James K.M. Cheng, the hotel is run by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts and located just west of the Financial District since 2012. It’s all posh sleekness with an Asian twist at the Shangri-la, from the in-room iPads connecting guests to room service and the concierge to the toiletries from L’Occitane. That Asian influence extends to Bosk, the hotel’s signature restaurant. But don’t get distracted on your way in: the hotel’s lobby is also home to a tea room with 68 hand-picked teas on offer (plus a five-volume book of cocktails, wine and beer… because Mad Men aren’t made with tea alone). From $500 per night
