The look, feel, and amenities of a chic, modern boutique hotel is what developers were aiming for with Boutique condos. They hit the mark in at 21 Nelson in Downtown Toronto with a 14-storey collection of one- and two-bedroom suites at a fantastic location minutes from the financial and entertainment districts. If what you are after is a stylish retreat that is close to everything, this is the place for you. Suites are airy and bright and feature all the sleek finishes you expect at a high-end urban hotel. And, of course, there are the outstanding amenities. Why not entertain poolside on the rooftop patio? It's all there for you to enjoy -- gas barbeques, fire pit seating and even private cabanas. If you'd rather go out instead, coffee shops, restaurants, theatres, and all the nightlife of your Queen West neighbourhood surround you. Your only problem will be trying to choose where to go first.
Most Notable Features
Value for money: Boutique condos are located right across the street from the fabulous 5-star Shangri-La hotel and condominiums and were specifically designed to give residents a sense of luxury hotel living. Of the downtown Toronto condos for sale in the two buildings, however, Boutique's suites cost substantially less per square foot and feature only slightly higher monthly maintenance fees. Amenities: Amenities are shared between the two Boutique condos buildings at 21 Nelson St. and 126 Simcoe St. and include a fully equipped exercise facility, an indoor counter-current exercise pool in addition to the outdoor plunge pool and lounge area and the exceptional Skyline Bar and party room, with incredible views of the city for entertaining. There's a business centre and meeting facility if you need it, and should you have guests in town, the parking garage has free visitor spaces and guest suites are available for overnighters. The 24-hour Concierge offers an additional list of à la carte services to make your life easier, like housekeeping, grocery delivery and dog walking.
