Ode was started by a family who fell in love with a street: Dundas St. West.
We dreamt of creating a place that celebrates the best of what the neighbourhood is becoming and what it once was. So we made Ode for people like us.
That means we’re not the Hyatt, the Marriott, or any of the Four Seasons. We cater only to our guests and answer only to our mother. This business is our baby, so we are dedicated to creating the best experience for everyone who walks through our front door.
Dundas West also known as “Little Portugal” is neither Little, nor is it Portugal. It’s a neighbourhood where
world romance meets modern life: you'll find Portuguese bakeries selling juicy pastel de nata’s, hole in the
galleries featuring local art, thrift shops where you can find the perfect ill advised chapeau, and
whose cuisine can only be described as unruly.
Ode is a reflection of our neighbourhood and the people in it. No beige carpets, no black and white photos of three pebbles in a pile. Instead, modern rooms each with their own individual personality brought to life by local Toronto based artists, designers and manufacturers that we are proud to call our friends.
Staying at interesting places should be within reach of those without a corporate credit card, and leave you
money in your pocket to explore.
By stripping back the things that you don’t need (think bathroom telephones, branded water, sewing kits), we are able to provide you with more of the things you do need, at an affordable price.
