Toronto’s Pride Month is officially underway, a first in Canadian History. The annual event attracts upwards of a million participants each year, many arriving in from far and near. For those who have yet to make their travel plans, there are a few boutique hotel options that are off the beaten path. Happy Pride!

The Ivy is hidden away, and definitely a word of mouth find. It's hidden off the main street, and includes a fabulous spa and one of the finest dining gems in the city as well called George. It's a great location for business executives, but also has hosted many celebrities due to its top notch service and privacy. It's the only private member's women's club in Toronto, however accommodations are open to men as well. http://www.theivyatverity.ca/about.asp

The Hazelton is located right in the heart of Yorkville, the place to head for exclusive designer name shops and five-star dining. The hotel itself has just over 60 rooms, with 15 suites, each fitted with original artwork. As well, art is featured throughout the hotel, featuring a wide variety of works that includes oils, acrylics, sculpture, photographs, and more. In addition the onsite facilities include a world-class spa, a private screening room, as well as the exquisite One Restaurant, featuring traditional French and Italian cuisine. It's also a popular hangout for visiting celebrities. http://thehazeltonhotel.com/Arms

Windsor Arms was built in 1927, and has been a hidden gem in the city ever since. There was a brief period in the early 1990's when it had closed, but has regained its in-the-know places to stay when in Toronto ever since. Today with only 28 suites, it retains its Gothic 1920's architecture with added state-of-the-art facilities, and plays host to exclusive parties and big name musicians. The onsite spa is an oasis of relaxation and rejuvenation, and the private screening room is popular during film festivals. As well, there are three dining options located within that include, Prime steakhouse, the Courtyard Café, and Lounge 22, in addition to the traditional Tea Room. http://www.windsorarmshotel.com

Soho House is a members-only property centrally located in the downtown core, built within an 1800's building that was once one of Toronto's original hotels. Each of the four levels has a different dining or lounging option including the Rooftop Terrace with outdoor fireplace. As well, every floor features unique art from both international and Canadian artists, with the third floor reflecting individual artists' visual responses to the question 'what does Toronto mean to you?' In addition, members have full use of all facilities at the adjacent Shangri La Hotel. http://www.sohohousetoronto.com 

Ocho Hotel is located within the heart of China Town, just steps from fashionable Queen West and trendy King West, as well as the eclectic, more bohemian vibe of Kensington Market. The property is quite small with only 12 rooms, each designed with modern industrial furnishings and abstract artwork. There's also a small bar with a variety of cool cocktails, as well as an all day dining restaurant onsite, serving everything from tapas and desserts to full meals. This is a unknown affordably priced alternative place to crash. http://hotelocho.com/contactus.html
