Our Commitment to Sustainability on Earth Day
As Earth Day approaches, The Hazelton Hotel is pleased to exhibit our dedication to sustainability through our numerous green initiatives. We recognize our own impact and strive to minimize our carbon footprint wherever possible.
Our property boasts a variety of energy-saving building systems, including a green roof, SMART Thermostats, Variable Frequency Drives, LED light bulbs, and eco-friendly materials such as wool carpets, which are the only carpet fiber not derived from petroleum, a scarce and non-biodegradable resource. We also provide electric vehicle (EV) charging stations as part of our efforts to achieve our own sustainability goals while also supporting the sustainability goals of our guests.
To reduce paper consumption and waste, we have introduced tablets in every guest room. These devices provide our guests with information about the hotel, the surrounding area, and allow them to make service requests and amenity bookings, effectively replacing all paper menus and information sheets.
Our signature One Restaurant promotes sustainable food and beverage practices, utilizing local and seasonal menu options and has partnered with 100KM Foods. We have also implemented eco-friendly practices in our daily operations, like the use of eco-certified cleaning products throughout the hotel, replacement of single-use plastic bags with reusable ones, and the introduction of the Press Reader App to eliminate physical newspapers. We offer Flow water packaged with renewable, plant-based materials that are 100% recyclable, and our Nespresso coffee pods in-room are completely recyclable due to their aluminum composition.
Beyond the Hotel, our employees volunteer in the local community through events and organizations such as Jump Thru Hoops and women’s shelters, donating items to further prevent waste and support those in need.
We are committed to sustainability and are constantly exploring new ways to reduce our environmental footprint while investing in green initiatives that benefit our guests, residents, and employees. So, on this Earth Day, let us all take action towards sustainability and make a positive difference, no matter how small.

Getaway with Girlfriends in the Heart of Yorkville at The Hazelton Hotel
Toronto is the perfect destination for a getaway with girlfriends. And when you stay at the Hazelton you’ll be in the heart of the city’s most upscale neighbourhood – Yorkville steps away from the fashion district of Toronto, eminent museums, art galleries and more. Here are some of the best things to do on a weekend away with the girls:
- Visit one of the many museums or art galleries that are located just steps from the hotel.
- Go shopping along Bloor Street’s Mink Mile and explore well-curated department stores, one-of-a-kind contemporary boutiques, and international luxury shops such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton that are hard to find anywhere else in Canada!
- Visit the Distillery District to admire the historic architecture, dine and shop at dozens of local vendors, and capture Instagram worthy photos.
- Visit the CN Tower, which is one of the world’s tallest freestanding structures.
- Explore Toronto’s entertainment scene by attending a concert at Massey Hall or catching an indie film at TIFF Bell Lightbox or Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema.
The ultimate girls trip wouldn’t be complete without a little pampering. Treat yourself to some much deserved R&R and book a spa day at the hotel’s very own oasis, the Spa by Valmont. With a range of therapies from world class anti-aging facials to therapeutic massages to body treatments, there’s something for everyone.
Guests can also enjoy access to state-of-the-art facilities including a fully equipped gym, heated saltwater pool and eucalyptus steam-rooms for an immersive and tranquil experience. Plus, for the month of January only, receive a luxury Valmont gift with any $200 product purchase.
We hope this itinerary has inspired you to plan a fun-filled getaway with girlfriends weekend at the Hazelton Hotel. We can’t wait to host you!
Hazelton Hotel and Jump Thru Hoops Holiday Toy Drive
The Hazelton Hotel believes in being an active member of and engaging in our communities. We always look forward to the holiday season as this is an important time to give back.
This year, we partnered with local non-profit organization, Jump Thru Hoops in support of the youth transition house at The Native Canadian Centre of Toronto (NCCT), and The Hospital for Sick Children. The NCCT and Sick Kids are two organizations that provide vital services to First Nations children and their families throughout Ontario and beyond.
Being able to contribute something small can make all the difference in someone’s day or life. With the help of our incredible team, we gathered hundreds of toys and hosted a toy drive in our Yorkville Room during December.
ONE Restaurant’s Executive Chef Darby prepared a delicious spread of wagyu sliders, Korean chicken tacos, artisanal all-beef pogo sticks, cheese & charcuterie board and fresh-cut crudité with dip to welcome all guests who stopped by to drop off toys as well. It was heartwarming to see our incredible community and Hazelton team come together this year.
We are thrilled to be able to support the great work of these charity partners and look forward to continuing to make an impact on those in need now in the future.
