Casa Loma

Hotels near Casa Loma, Toronto, Canada .

Today one of the most popular tourist attractions in Toronto, Canada, Casa Loma has had many lives since its construction began in 1911. After 300 spent 3 years constructing this Gothic Revival castle for financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, building was halted by the outbreak of World War I. Today the unfinished third floor is used as the Regimental Museum for the Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada. After property taxes soared during the Depression, Pellatt lost the house to City seizure in 1933. In the twenties it served a luxury hotel and nightspot, and was the home of the Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra dance band who would go on to become rather famous during the swing era. When the City motioned to demolish the structure it was instead leased by the Kiwanis Club of Toronto. Less than 30 years after its construction began, this private residence was turned into a Kiwanis Club locale, and then a public tourist attraction in 1937. During World War II Casa Loma also housed sonar device research, applied in U-boat detection. Its most achievements have been as a movie star appearing in films like X-Men, Chicago, and The Pacifier.

Today visitors enjoy exploring the five acres of gardens, the hundreds of rooms and underground tunnels connecting the house to its Hunting Lodge and Stables. Although the basement swimming pool, gymnasium and bowling lanes were never completed, today guests will find a Gift Shop and Castle Café in their place. Admission prices are $18 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and youth, and $10.50 for children ages 4-13. Parking is $3 per hour, with a daily maximum charge of $9. Self-guided digital audio tours are available in 8 languages.

When visiting Casa Loma choose from area hotels like the Casa Loma Inn, the Castlegate Inn, and the InterContinental Toronto Yorkville. Be sure not to miss area attractions like the CN Tower, the Ontario Science Center, the Royal Ontario Museum and the Toronto Zoo.
