Homage to Literary Legends

The hotel's famed rooftop cocktail bar—where the Writers Guild of Canada was purportedly born on the back of a napkin—is filled with many high-profile artwork commissions that pique curiosity. Works by Kristiina Lahde, Madison Van Rijn, and Douglas Coupland complement the rich interpretation of historical imagery. This collection marries old and new in a contemporary light that is sure to spark literary conversion in one of Toronto's most historic bars. Writers Room pays homage to the Canadian literati who used to frequent the space. Margaret Atwood even set a scene of her novel "Cat’s Eye” here. Framed collections of antique ink bottles, writing quills, and writer-inspired decor set the tone for the artful journey ahead. Writers Room, the 17th-floor lounge, features oxblood banquettes, dark-stained oak walls, a double-sided fireplace, and black-stone tables. New floor-to-ceiling windows ensure everyone—not just the lucky few who land a seat on the expanded terrace—enjoys sweeping views of the city.
