Insider Review: The Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

  Four Seasons Toronto flagship property told by Chadner Navarro.

A Flagship
Toronto-based Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts unveiled its flagship property late in 2012 after 50 years in business. The imposing 259-room, 55-story hotel in upscale Yorkville, is testament to the company’s journey from a Toronto motel to a global player in luxury hospitality. This is the fifth Four Seasons incarnation in the city.

The Location
Yorkville’s tree-lined streets are dotted with beautiful Victorian homes, some of Canada’s best museums, award-winning restaurants and designer boutiques. Most of what guests need to access is within walking distance. However, if the Canadian winter is too harsh or an address is not walking distance reserve one of the hotel’s designated cars, equipped with Wi-Fi.

The Design
Four Seasons spared no expense to make the Toronto property look like the crown jewel it is. Overall, there’s a subtle elegance to its interiors, which is anchored with a lot of dark wood that renders a sexy, modern vibe to every corner of the building. But every now and then, grand design flourishes elevate the visual experience, like the over-the-top pop-art-meets-street-art pieces that decorate Cafe Boulud or the massive porcelain and wood dandelion installation from local artist Alissa Coe greeting guests in the lobby.

The Rooms
The simply decorated 42 suites featureFloor-to-ceiling windowsflood the room with light, making the subtle color choices more luminous. The gray, white, occasional gold and light wood put all the attention on the more significant details, including the famously comfortable Four Seasons beds, and oversized desks and ergonomic chairs that make having to work more pleasurable (or at least luxurious). There are also iPads to order room service, book spa treatment, and incredibly spacious bathrooms in every room.

The Four Seasons Spa in Toronto is the largest in the brand’s portfolio, at 30,000 square feet over two floors. The spa menu is equally massive so plan a day to take full advantage of what’s on offer. The outdoor terrace - when the weather allows for it - is a great retreat after a pampering session or workout. Culinary fiends, meanwhile, will love celebrity chef Daniel Boulud’s dining program and the cool décor enlivened by street artist Mr. Brainwash.

In keeping with its global reputation, nothing tops the Four Seasons Toronto for its service, amenities and location.

Room rates start at $465 cad.
