The Suite Life

The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, features 267 guestrooms, including 56 Corner Suites, two Deluxe Suites and a Ritz-Carlton Suite, which will be the accommodation of choice for top-level executives and jetsetters visiting the hotel. 

Located on The Ritz-Carlton Club Level, the 2,415-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Suite comes with its own fitness area that includes an elliptical machine and a Kinesis Zero Impact Infinite Movement System. The suite also features a spacious foyer, a powder room, rich wood flooring throughout, an expansive living room, a separate dining room, a study, a walk-in closet, and the services of a personal concierge.

Club Level guests can help themselves to a continuous array of complimentary food and beverages throughout the day in the 20th floor lounge, which overlooks Lake Ontario.

The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, located on Wellington Street in the heart of Toronto, Canada’s financial district, is set to open its doors to guests in November. The 267-room property is a close walk from some of the city’s most popular landmarks and attractions including the Design Exchange museum and design center and the iconic CN Tower.

“Toronto is a phenomenal gateway city, and we want to work with the city to grow Toronto’s reputation as an international destination,” Daniel Newberry, director of sales and marketing for The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, told TravelAge West.

All guestrooms will offer either a view of the city’s skyline or of Lake Ontario through floor-to-ceiling windows. Rounding out the well-appointed guestrooms are heated floors; comfortable beds with high-thread-count Italian linens; two flat-screen, high-definition televisions; deep soaking tubs and separate showers with rain shower heads; and Portuguese marble walls.
As would be expected due to its prime location, the hotel will offer extensive conference and banquet facilities, including a 7,400-square-foot ballroom, which will be the city’s largest luxury ballroom to date. A 24-hour business center and glass-enclosed, pre-function promenades that overlook Wellington Street and Metro Hall Park will also appeal to meeting planners and business travelers.

Dining will be another draw as Toronto native, Tom Brodi, has accepted the position of chef de cuisine at the hotel’s signature restaurant. Brodi is expected to incorporate his farm-to-table philosophy to create contemporary Canadian cuisine with a strong local identity. Located on the mezzanine level, his 120-seat signature restaurant will feature a walk-in wine cellar, private dining room and a glass-encased cheese cave.
