I'm planning to visit Canada this year. I hope I could find a hotel for my accommodation with a nice view of a city

There are numerous hotel room views on offer but it depends on what type of view you want. To get a good overall view of the skyline one needs to be at one end of it look towards the other end. If you're in the south of downtown where the CBD is located you'd want a room facing north ....unless you want views of the lake, islands, perhaps CN Tower.

At the northern end of downtown is Yorkville. It's the high end shopping district of Toronto; one might want to look into the Park Hyatt Toronto. You'd need a room near the top floor and one facing south. It could be taller but there's nothing tall in front of it so you get fairly unobstructed views.

View looking south from rooftop patio, Park Hyatt


The Grand is a lot further south and off to the east (10 minute walk from Yonge Street). Not sure what kind of hotel it is but this is the view looking southwest from its roof top.



The Ritz-Carlton is more in the thick of it so you get views like this to the northeast. Btw, the tall glass building on the right is the Shangri-La Hotel (only the bottom third is hotel) and the 2 short concrete 70s buildings to the right of that would be the Hilton and the Sheraton. Not sure they're high enough to afford a good view as buildings are packed pretty tight around there. You might just get a view of the buildings across the street. Trump is like that too.

i think 'best' can mean a lot of things. New York is certainly the biggest, Chicago is certainly the tallest, but best is more just people's personal opinions. A lot of people prefer an extremely dense core, which neither New York or Chicago have.

Neither NY nor Chicago have an extremely dense core? Which North American cities do you feel have denser cores than them?

Come to think of it, which world cities have denser cores than them?
