Pantages Tower is a condominium and boutique hotel at 210 Victoria Street in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The building is located near the Ed Mirvish Theatre at 244 Victoria Street, which opened in 1920 as the Pantages Theater. The hotel is known as the Pantages Hotel, and its main entrance is situated at 200 Victoria Street.

At 139.6 metres and 45 floors, the glass tower was completed in 2003. The Postmodern tower was designed by Moshe Safdie and Core Architects Inc for developers Dundee Corp and Intracorp.

Acclaimed British milliner Nick Smith resided at the hotel for several months in 2006 to write his début novel, "Rock Royalty: Diary of a Supermodel".
