The artsy Distillery Historic District

Affectionately dubbed T.O. by natives, Canada’s largest city has a similarly simple request: Come.

With SARS fears over, Toronto is in high gear, sprucing up meetings hotels like the Delta Chelsea and Le Royal Meridien King Edward, while the new Soho Metropolitan opened earlier this year.

Both the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario debuted ambitious, multi-year expansion plans.

Also, a sprawling 19th-century brick distillery is now the arts-centric Distillery Historic District, complete with strollable cobblestone walkways and a funky consortium of galleries and nightspots. You heard it here first: This is the next hot neighborhood, and much of the distinctive space can host groups.
