With our iconic history, sophisticated accommodations, and central location, the Hotel Victoria has delighted visitors in downtown Toronto for over 100 years.
After the great fire of 1906, construction on an iconic building began, led and designed by renowned Canadian architect J.P. Hynes. Under his vision and direction, one of Toronto’s first fireproof buildings was created, commissioned by Fredrick Mossop. In 1909 the doors would open to welcome guests to the 48-room Hotel; Appropriately named The ‘Hotel Mossop.’
The Hotel was prosperous for many years and even served as an emergency hospital during the flu pandemic when the hospitals were overflowing with sick patients. After facing the hard times of the Great Depression and prohibition, the Hotel Mossop closed in 1917.
This architectural gem was quickly snapped up by the Elliot Brothers, who refurbished and renovated the entire building. It was then renamed, and remains, the ‘Hotel Victoria’ to pay tribute to Queen Victoria.
Hotel Victoria is conveniently located in Toronto’s Financial District, on Yonge Street. To the east of Hotel Victoria, guests can easily explore the St. Lawrence Market District and old Toronto.
