Toronto’s new eco-luxury hotel just got some major recognition. Every year, Condé Nast Traveler releases a Hot List of the best new hotels in the world, and in its 26th edition, Toronto’s 1 Hotel made the cut.

Editors at all seven editions around the globe scouted and hand-selected the chosen hotels, of which there are 96 worldwide.

1 Hotel was the only accommodation in Canada included in the list. Described as an exception to Toronto’s typical “unremittingly corporate or standard bohemian-chic” hotels, this place is an urban oasis where sustainability meets luxury.

Condé Nast Traveler calls out its “biophilic design, impressive conservation programs, and real community-mindedness,” but doesn’t fail to mention its luxe amenities, including the rooftop pool with waterside service, and Veuve Clicquot champagne in the minibar.

1 Hotel is described in the ranking as “Canada’s first mission-driven hotel,” which “promises to divert over 85% of waste from landfills and it has an on-site composter to turn organic waste into reusable soil.”

It’s also beautiful in its design, featuring tons of greenery and locally-sourced natural materials to create “a city escape where guests can connect with nature,” the hotel says.
