Tucked along the lush banks of the Humber River, a 35-minute subway ride from downtown, this Arts and Crafts–style hotel was built to resemble a stately Tudor cottage. Parts of the sprawling property are occupied by a 200-year-old former gristmill, but the rooms feel less 1800s and more 1980s luxury. The old-money aesthetic won’t appeal to everyone, but it has its charms, including rooms done in heavy, lustrous fabrics: box-pleated curtains with complementary bed skirts and tufted arm chairs. The ample square footage of the rooms, the four-poster mahogany beds, Jacuzzi tubs, and views over the ravine below are all boons. As are the silent nights: Expect to hear little but crickets chirping at midnight, not sirens. Old Mill is also located on the northwest end of downtown, making the taxi ride to the airport substantially cheaper. The buffet brunch can be hit or miss; high tea in the handsome rooms is splendid.
