Reciprocal Club: Toronto, Canada
A Canadian trio.
Toronto clubs offer in-city escape
When business travel or a leisure vacation takes you to the bustling city of Toronto, ask yourself if one of the three WAC reciprocal clubs located in the downtown business core fits your style.
Referred to as the New York of Canada, Toronto is a must-see city. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the metropolis is Canada’s largest, with
6 million people living in the greater area. It’s also just 90 minutes from Niagara Falls. Add a quick escape to the Toronto Islands, a very short ferry ride from downtown, and you’ll find plenty of reasons to visit.
Toronto Athletic Club
A “club in the sky,” the Toronto Athletic Club is located on the 36th floor of TD South Tower. The fitness area at the club has expansive views of the city’s skyline and equal sightlines to CN Tower. The Stratus restaurant inside overlooks the gorgeous Toronto Islands.
If you enjoy a boutique feel, check out the Adelaide Club. It’s nestled just below street level in the city’s tallest building at 1 First Canadian Place and offers a women’s fitness area. Peruse the club’s beautiful art collection that includes originals by American painter Frank Stella; linger in the peaceful full-service spa; or float in the Hilton Toronto pool, at which Adelaide Club members enjoy full access and accommodation.
Discreetly placed in the Sheraton Centre Hotel and featuring a 160-meter rooftop track, the Cambridge Club’s fitness area is exclusive to men. Squash is the dominant sport here. Dining in the Oak Room’s gastropub comes with a view of city hall, located just across the street.
