The 259-room Four Seasons Hotel Toronto opened in October 2012 in the Yorkville district, which is one of Toronto’s best shopping areas. Designed by celebrity architect Yabu Pushelberg, the lobby is one of the most dramatic we’ve seen with large snowflake sculptures, towering handpainted walls and smooth wood paneled columns.
Right off the lobby, the open D Bar has 25-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, offering beautiful views of the city during post-session cocktails and conversation.
“The Four Seasons Toronto is in a category by itself—a true Four Seasons in our hometown, our flagship hotel,” says Isadore Sharp, founder/chairman of Four Seasons Hotels. “It is a landmark development for the city of Toronto.”
A floating marble staircase leads to Café Boulud. It was built using reclaimed stone floors and local woods. The restaurant seats 156 guests, featuring a communal table constructed from 800-year-old wood. The menu is exquisite seasonal French cuisine and we definitely recommend his black cod persillade, steak au poivre and crispy duck. The restaurant can be rented out for private events, or planners can book a private dining room for 10 pax.
Four Seasons’ guest rooms utilize natural light from large windows with spectacular views of the city. The muted colors and residential furniture give the rooms a living room feel. The sizable bathrooms with walk-in showers are built with granite, using soaps and shampoos from the 30,000-sf spa. Located on the 9th floor, the sun-soaked spa is the largest in the city.
Seventeen meeting rooms offer 14,300 sf of space for 20 to 600 people. You will love the Aria Ballroom with an outdoor terrace overlooking the downtown core, with space for 300-pax receptions.
