What To Know
- There’s a fee for WiFi
- The hotel is smack in the middle of busy downtown, so parking is expensive

Canada’s own stellar interior design duo Yabu Pushelberg have stamped their urbane, glamorous imprimatur on this dazzling 55-story tower, the new flagship for the Four Seasons global empire. From the show-stopping lobby, with its rich wood paneling, stone floors and striking artworks by Canadian artists, to the floating staircase leading to Café Boulud — the latest hub for the city’s tastemakers – this is a dazzle-your-social-network kind of stay. Situated in the swanky downtown nabe of Yorkville, it’s a stroll to a host of Toronto’s must-see addresses, but if guests prefer to enjoy the in-house sybaritic pleasures, they can book a unique spa treatment(at the largest spa in the entire luxury chain’s portfolio), such as the Cultural Mosaic of Canada, a 2.75-hour retreat showcasing rituals and techniques drawn from the country’s rich cultural melting pot.
In the Area
The country’s most cosmopolitan city is a boon for culture vultures. Hit the Frank Gehry-designed Art Gallery of Ontario to witness some 80,000 paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures from the Western art canon, then narrow the focus at the excellent McMichael Canadian Art Collection to get acquainted with some of Canada’s most significant visionaries, from Ansel Adams to First Nation and Inuit artists. Daredevils will thrill to the gusty glory of the famous CN Tower, the tallest freestanding structure in the Americas, which offers a revolving restaurant and EdgeWalk, a terrifying hands-free harnessed walk on the tower’s outer ledge. Come back down to Earth with some of David Chang’s famous pork buns at Noodle Bar, one of four Momofuku empire restaurants in a glass cube building on University Avenue.
How to Get There
Exceptional service. No detail was overlooked. I really appreciated the convenience of using the Four Seasons app which may be used for almost everything from requesting your car from the valet to room service orders. Four Seasons Toronto is our family’s new favourite hotel.
My wife and I have stayed at the Four Seasons Toronto 3 times in the last 12 months and we felt warmly welcomed every time. Each staff member is personable, helpful (I want to say wonderful honestly), and responsive.
The moment we walked into the Four Seasons we received 5 star treatment. The staff are great and the facilities in the hotel are awesome. It was my mothers birthday so we decided to use the spa and go to dinner at Cafe Boulud afterwards. The room is large and the bathtub is great. The breakfast is a la carte and not a buffet, which might not be what some people are looking for, but nevertheless I don’t have anything negative to say. The price is quite high but it is well worth it!
My husband and I were celebrating an anniversary, so decided to stay downtown, and enjoy a night out. The staff at the Four Seasons were great! I had booked a spa service, and the front desk was able to get an early check in so we could leave our bags. The room was fantastic (I think we had an upgrade, as we ended up on the 20th floor with a fantastic view!) All amenities in the room were top notch. I cannot say anything other than it was definitely worth the stay.
The staff were all very attentive and always made us feel welcome.
We will definitely be back!
In town for a conference at the hotel. Service was excellent and the app made it very personalized. Very responsive to any inquiries. High praise to the staff and the great fitness facility. Location was excellent.
