It's the traveller's best-kept secret: skipping the hotel for a fully furnished, private short-term rental apartment while they enjoy everything Toronto offers. And that's not just glitzy high-rise skylines and city lights: the best reasons to settle into a short-term rental are the absolutely practical perks everyone can enjoy, whether traveling for business, pleasure, medical reasons, insurance housing, film & production, sport & entertainment or relocating due to unforeseen life circumstances.
Find out what's behind the doors of Toronto's furnished rental market, and why seasoned travellers’ skip the hotel for a short-term rental home.
Affordable rates, with no add-on fees
Renting a furnished Toronto apartment might sound like a frill, but with room rates averaging $150 a night for chain hotels and over $200 for a boutique, your short-term furnished rental gets you much more for less.
And that starts with square footage: with short-term furnished rental rates starting at $140 a night for units twice as large as the average hotel room—one-bedrooms all the way up to three-bedroom family spaces—furnished apartments let you stretch out into a fully-equipped, stylish, spacious home in one of Toronto's most elegant buildings.
There's also more built into your nightly rate in a furnished condo rental. Your furnished apartment rate is all-inclusive: no room and tourism taxes, long-distance surcharges, or high-priced room service. Furnished apartment rentals offer hospitality you can use without having to stress about your budget: You can access your own private, high-speed wifi network without ads, daily connection charges, or download caps, and watch movies on your TV without worrying about the price.
And with your own washer/dryer in the unit, there's no need to pay per-piece hotel laundromat rates. Travel home with already clean laundry, or save on airline checked bag fees by packing light.
Your stay in a short-term rental apartment is by no means a bare-bones experience; it's your chance to sample Toronto's luxury condominium lifestyle. Located in buildings equipped with fitness rooms, infinity pools, saunas, stunning rooftop terraces, games rooms, and more, you can run your morning workout routine, have a swim, or enjoy private outdoor relaxation without the crowds while dedicated building security staff provide absolute peace of mind.
Pair this with the convenience of luxury hotel services, including housekeeping; complimentary toiletries, coffee, tea, and snacks; and peerlessly designed furnishings, and you can enjoy your stay worry-free, from the airport to your front door. DelSuites complimentary limo service from Pearson International Airport or Billy Bishop to your furnished apartment lets you leave the logistics to them.
Privacy, permanence, and professional service
Hotels are designed for travel, but furnished apartment rentals are designed for living—and that's key for travellers settling in for longer stays. With DelSuites units physically designed for comfort—thicker walls, sensitive thermostats, and the steady pace of life of a residential community—your short-term furnished rental is a temporary second home you can relax into, removed from the bustle of a hotel: a steady, stable home base where you can feel like you belong.
Our seasoned, expert staff of credentialed property management professionals is another advantage to the busy traveller over more informal short-term rental housing: no last-minute cancellations, no oversights, and answers at your fingertips.
A more authentic downtown experience
Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct vibe and character. A short-term furnished rental lets you get a taste of what it's like to live, work, and play in one of the most diverse, dynamic cities in the world.
A furnished rental apartment makes it easy to explore, find neighbourhood favourites, try new and exciting destinations, or find a little piece of home.
The flexibility to travel how you want
You're not a one-size-fits-all traveller—and a short-term rental apartment gives you the freedom to enjoy a trip that's tailored to fit.
Have dietary restrictions? No problem with a full kitchen at your disposal—one you can guarantee is allergen-free.
Night owl traveling with an early riser? A furnished suite gives you the privacy to stick to your most comfortable hours without guilt or lost sleep.
Visiting, and like to entertain? You'll have plenty of space to offer real hospitality without crowding anyone into a small hotel room.
Instead of fitting your travel ambitions to someone else's standard, short-term furnished rentals let you take your whole self on the road, and have a space away from home that feels—and can be used—like it's yours, without sacrificing the comfort and hospitality of the hotel experience.
