Next up in our Toronto tour is the 18-room hotel, The Beverley, found on hipster hangout, Queen West. After some initial confusion as to whether to head up or down the stairs (go up to check-in and down to go to the popular restaurant and lounge), we met up with GM Scott Newnham who showed us around this tasteful minimalist boutique property.

The hotel’s motto is, “Everything you need and nothing you don’t,” and we think this is a pretty accurate depiction of what the hotel’s all about. Cool, white minimalism takes over the rooms — with a happy shock of vivid color coming from the bathrooms — and what’s there is luxurious: Frette linens; local spa Body Blitz toiletries; fluffy cotton robes; and flat-screen TVs mounted on the ceiling or wall.

Have a look at the photo gallery below to see for yourself!

For the most part, rooms are what we would describe as "intimate," with the two Standard Rooms coming in at a mere 129 sq ft, the 14 Deluxe Rooms marginally larger at 156 sq ft and the two Suites a comparatively gargantuan 318 sq ft. All are laid out well, though, and seem bigger than they are due to the glass that separates the bathroom from the sleeping area and the light maple flooring. The rumor around town was that some of the rooms didn’t have windows because they butted up against another building, but those rooms do have opaque windows that bring in natural light due to the skylights bridging the buildings. Smart.

Other amenities include complimentary locally-roasted coffee in the lobby, a hopping restaurant and lounge, and an outdoor patio that includes a cool space affectionally called "The Aquarium"--a glass balcony that looks out over Queen West.

The hotel’s just a baby, having opened in August 2013, with only one growing pain that we could see: When we were there the elevator was a bit iffy, so remember this if you really can’t handle stairs. All in all, this is a well-designed beauty for those looking for a very reasonably-priced boutique experience.

We found rates in March for $126 CAD ($115) for a Deluxe Room and $220 CAD ($200) for a Suite.
