Thompson Hotel. A priceyboutique hotel
on 550 Wellington St ikn the Queer West Village. There are few bad reviews on
Yelp. Unruly security guards looked like they just finished a shift as a club
bouncer and treat guests like club goers. The place is like a frat house with
thin walls and heavy slamming doors, you hear doors slamming all night long.
Mark S, from Hollywood California said With sweeping views - from Lake Ontario
to the skyline - it's hard not to fall in love with Toronto when you visit the
rooftop. A walk around the 16th-floor terrace always gives me goosebumps; the
full 360 view of Toronto is quite magnificent. It's not quite in the downtown
core, but certainly within a reasonable walking distance, or you can hop on
the King streetcar.Thompson Lobby Lounge provides a chilled ambiance with its
top 40/ easy listening resident dj spinning some tune in the background. For
those that are cash-strapped, this place can get quite pricey. Late check out
is 2 p.m.Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and sumptious bedding, Large bathrooms
with heated floors and Tocca toiletries Large, sleek, bright fitness center,
Yoga studio offers range of classes, Renowned dining at Scarpetta, casual fare
at Thompson Diner, Rooftop patio is a major nightlife draw and has stunning
view of the city at night. Thompson Hotel, 550 Wellington St W (Between Spadina

GAY MEN'S BATHHOUSE - Central Spa - (C-Spa is the cleanest bathhouse
in the city) 1610 Dundas St. West 2nd Floor at Brock, two blocks west of Dufferin
northside. 416. 588.6191 15 rooms, 60 lockers regular room See website
for prices...First of all, Central Spa is in a very different location
than most other gay bathhouses. Rather that being smack dab in the middle of
the Church Street area of Toronto, Central Spa is in the West End where an up-and-coming
gay district is developing around such great hang-outs as The Beaver and the
Garrison. It’s situated right in the heart of little Portugal and not surprizingly
gets a lot of guys from the neighbourhood. If you’re looking to meet some guys
to hook up with, word on the street is the best time to go is Monday’s in the
afternoon. Yes, you read that right. An unknown fact is that a lot of in-the-closet
married guys want to get their fix in the afternoon on lunch break when no body
else would suspect a thing. Because of this, if you’re looking for a nice, relaxing
steam with few folks around, the best time to go is on a Friday night. Little
