The Hazelton Hotel Voted Number Three Best Hotel In Canada

Every trip to Toronto is made even more memorable for me when I stay at The Hazelton Hotel, located right in the heart of luxurious Yorkville. 

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Hazelton Hotel many times over the last several years, and with each visit, I fall in love with the hotel even more. The Hazelton Hotel is most definitely a perfect escape for a couple looking for a romantic getaway and it's also perfect for a best friends weekend trip, a work retreat, or simply, any visit to Toronto.

The Hazelton is "Canada's first and only Forbes five-star independent luxury boutique hotel" and though it's considered a boutique hotel because it only has 77 (very spacious) rooms and suites, it feels very grand and luxurious. The hotel is constantly ranked the #1 hotel in Toronto on TripAdvisor (five years and counting!) and was just voted the Number Three Best Hotel in Canada Conde Nast Traveller's 2022 Readers' Choice Awards. I have to agree, because this luxurious hotel is perfection, from the moment you arrive.

Here are three reasons why I love The Hazelton Hotel: 

1. The service. Most five-star hotels cater to their guests and provide excellent service, but I have experienced the best consistent service at The Hazelton Hotel, from check-in to check-out. The attention to detail, pleasant and helpful staff, and warm welcome upon arrival, make each stay feel extra special; almost like you're being welcomed back home again. 

2. The rooms.  Yorkville is my favourite place to be in Toronto, because of the fine dining options, people watching, and shopping, and of course, because it's home to The Hazelton Hotel. The hotel has 77 rooms and suites, and all are spacious, modern, and luxurious, and many have walk out balconies with comfortable seating areas. The beds in the rooms are extremely comfortable, and come with a pillow menu so you can select your choice of pillows. The large, floor-to-ceiling green granite and marble bathrooms with heated floors, large soaking tub and mirror-mounted television screen will make you never want to leave. 

3. Dining and Wellness. Hazelton is home to Toronto's popular ONE restaurant, where you can experience classic Italian and French cuisine, with fresh and local Ontario produce. The large patio is one of Toronto's best, and always bustling with action in the warmer months. ONE also offers 24-hour-in-room dining, and has the most delicious breakfast options. I've enjoyed many wonderful dinners at ONE, and waking up to in-room dining is amazing, too. You can also enjoy the Spa by Valmont, with many spa treatments available, an indoor saltwater pool, and fitness centre.

The Hazelton Hotel delivers in more ways than one and I can't  for my next stay here.  Congrats, Hazelton!

Top five scariest movies ever

It's after midnight on Halloween Eve and here I sit, watching another episode of Criminal Minds, looking at pictures of The Grudge on the internet. (Later, I'll be wondering why I have a hard time falling asleep...) I'm easily spooked. I mean, everything scares me. Not just spiders and insects. Not just jumping out of a plane or running out of coffee. My fears and worries? They're never-ending, and they consume me all day long. Scary things have happened to me in real life, like almost getting kidnapped in D.C., having a strange man play with my hair on the subway in Queens, New York at 5 a.m after a night out, accidentally going down a black diamond ski hill, and having a gun pulled on me in the middle of winter. (That's a story for another blog post!) However, there is something that frightens me even more than all those things. Scary movies. Certain scary movies stay with me long after I've left the theatre. There are scary movies that I can watch


I'm a giving person. I love the holidays because I love to give presents to everyone I love, from friends and family to other special people in my life. But more than that, I love to give where it really counts—I love to volunteer for charities, and I love to give whenever I can, to a few organizations close to my heart, like CHEO and UNICEF, to name two. I love helping organizations that help children, and I also give in other ways, too—I donate to whatever charity event my family or friends are doing something for and I'll give when I'm out at events that benefit worthwhile organizations. So many Canadians give their time, talent, and money to different charities and by doing so, it makes us better as a whole. Research shows that one of the main reasons people decide to to give is simply because they were asked. It's hard to say no, especially when you're asked. Also, giving feels good, doesn't it?

The End of the Innocence

Remember when the days were long And rolled beneath a deep blue sky Didn't have a care in the world With mommy and daddy standing by When "happily ever after" fails And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales... Don Henley When you're looking for clues as to why you turned out the way you did, all you have to do is look to your childhood to get the answers you're trying to find. Almost everything can be traced back to your childhood. I can pinpoint the start of my anxiety attacks to a specific day—a specific event —from when I was only six years old. What was supposed to be a nice afternoon out with my father turned out to be a traumatic day, one that left me in tears and filled with sadness. It was a beautiful sunny day, and I was dressed appropriately in a yellow dress, white sweater, and brand-new white sandals. I kissed my mom good-bye as she headed off to work, and I left with my father. A father-daughter day. Just perfect! We were about to see a really
