Q: What is Toronto Heritage Residences? Is it a hotel?

A: Not exactly. From May to August, Toronto Heritage Residences offers short- term room or house rentals in five beautiful downtown residences through Airbnb. These houses are traditional in style, but we have included modern comforts such as WiFi, laundry machines and daily housekeeping. Bedrooms are private, and there is shared a shared kitchen, living room and bathrooms. You may have the opportunity to meet other travelers in the common areas, and neighbors in the community. We are offering an authentic Toronto experience!
