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
Excellent. If you want to stay in Yorkville, this hotel is a must! Hospitality was amazing. The bed, so comfy and the room so clean. Can't wait to go back! Breakfast was excellent the the chief accomodating to adjustments.
Fabulous Hotel and very attentive staff.Located right in the heart of Toronto and Yorkville. Couldn’t be any closer to where everything is happening.Expensive,but worth every penny spent.Would gladly go back!
Facilities are great but the dining room was noisy, crowded, food was too hot and lacked flavour. Room was very nice but even on 20th floor street noise was evident.. pool and spa were great and being in Yorkville added to the flavour
We travelled here with another couple for my birthday celebration. The staff was nice upon check in and the hotel is lovely and chic. Our room was clean and well appointed and I appreciate all of the extras that Four Seasons provides (coffee service, slippers and nice robes, luxury bath products). The hotel is in a great location and we were able to walk to all of the main areas for shopping and dining. We didn't visit the spa but had a meal in the main restaurant and it was wonderful. Had cocktails in the hotel bar each evening which was very fun for people watching and live music. We learned quickly on the first visit that we had to mention that we were guests of the hotel in order to get a table in the lounge area.
We have stayed at this hotel several times for business and social visits to Toronto. It is in an excellent location for downtown access as well as being walking distance to a number of shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is immaculate and the service is some of the best we have experienced anywhere.
