Welcome to Canada's largest hotel (it has a whopping 1590 rooms and suites). That's long made it a favorite for businesses planning conferences (it has lots of meeting space), but what's less well known is that it's also ideal for families. Many suites have full kitchens (great if you have picky eaters in tow) and the hotel has a number of amenities just for the little ones, including an indoor pool with a waterslide (the only one in downtown Toronto), a Kid's Center with games, and even a Club 33 Teen Lounge. Want some family time away from the hotel? The Eaton Chelsea has its own beach guests can visit on Toronto Island. With this many rooms, the hotel has to cater to childless adults as well, of course, and for them there's a quieter, adults-only pool with very good fitness facilities attached as well as a small outdoor sundeck (on the 27th floor), saunas, and hot tubs. The lobby features the hopping TBar with real mixologists on staff who infuse vodkas with bacon among other ingredients, and even create their own famous "clamato juice." Three on-site restaurants round-out the amenities. Final perk? Room keys are honored for discounts at many local attractions.
