As native Torontonians know, the city and its innumerable neighborhoods are so ethni-culturally nuanced that it takes a concerted study of the cityscape to truly know it well. This Escape puts you in the heart of it all to explore the corner-street gems Ontario's largest city has to offer.

Set up shop at The Strathcona Hotel, set amid the buzz of the Theatre and Financial districts downtown, for a one-night ($139) or two-night ($260) stay for two in an Executive Room, and get a bottle of red or white wine, late 2 p.m. checkout, and a welcome amenity bag.

Equipped with a king-size, queen-size, or two double beds, a writing desk, and a flat-screen TV, each Executive Room is elegantly appointed with European wood floors and California shutters, plus 250-thread-count sheets and luxe eco-friendly bath amenities.

Set out into the city after a buffet breakfast for two in the hotel's York Street Café. Walk northwest to the vast Chinatown neighborhood, centered at Spadina and Dundas Street West—sometimes called Old Chinatown, as it's one of several in Toronto—to grab dim sum at Rol San before browsing the silk dresses and handicrafts in the Dragon City Mall.

For a taste of the city's live theater scene, head to the Entertainment District for a show at the world-class Princess of Wales Theatre. When night falls, get to Koreatown for a bowl of spicy gamjatang (pork spine soup) and a reverb-drenched karaoke mic.

Then, head back to The Strathcona to soak the day in with a nightcap at 10 percent off from The Pub, where you'll come to one of two conclusions: You'll either wish there were more hours in the day or fewer neighborhoods worth exploring in the Queen City.

  • "With many refurbished rooms (and more on the way), this 65-year-old hotel is unpretentious and reasonably priced for its downtown location. Downstairs, a pub and cafe offer good deals on grub."
