I must say that I’m proud to live in the “City Above Toronto” (as it used to be called haha) otherwise known as Vaughan. Vaughan has been my home for a good part of my life and there is no other place that I would want to be with my family, let alone raise my girls. We have everything here; fantastic schools, parks, great shopping, an amusement park, culture, history and now one of my faves and somewhat of a hidden gem…Novotel Vaughan!
Novotel Vaughan is a name I’m sure you’ve heard of and have probably seen it from the highway or on a recent trip to Vaughan Mills. You probably haven’t even given it a second thought, it’s just a hotel and if you are a Vaughan resident like me you really have no use for a hotel, right? Well not quite! I had the recent pleasure of visiting Novotel Vaughan and I was very impressed. It was stunning! It’s sleek, sexy and oh so CHIC 🙂 So c’mon how could I not like it lol!
You walk into a beautiful lobby, are greeted by their amazing staff and immediately to your left you see Trio Restaurant/Lounge Bar and let me tell you it doesn’t look like anything you would expect to see in a hotel. As I stood there admiring the view and checking out the terrace, I couldn’t help but think; how did I not know of this place? It’s the perfect place for a date night, party, or even upcoming event. I’m so used to going to the same old local restaurants and banquet halls and I’m over them…I want something new and upcoming and this is it, it’s a hidden gem! The best part is that Novotel Vaughan also has gorgeous event spaces that can be used for larger functions including weddings.
So next time you are racking your brain trying to think of a place to check out for a date night, a venue for your hubby’s birthday, maybe even a baptism or baby shower you need to check it out. The food is amazing, the sights are fantastic and you’ll definitely walk away happy and so will your guests. Oh yeah did I mention they also have rooms if you need a great place to stay for a night or two? Haha! No, but really if you have friends or family coming to visit from out of town they will take great care of them. Indoor saltwater pool, complimentary WIFI, walking distance to Vaughan Mills mall, 5 minutes from Canada’s Wonderland, oh and this is awesome…accommodations and breakfast are free for 2 children under 16 years old sharing a room with their parents or grandparents.
