As Canada’s financial and business centre as well as a North American cultural capital, Toronto welcomes millions of visitors every year. Many visitors stay at one of the city’s multitude of fine hotels, and a select group of those overnighting in Toronto find accommodation at one of the city’s premiere luxury hotels. Global Alliance Worldwide Chauffeured Services frequently operates out of these hotels, transferring clients to and from the airport to these downtown hospitality facilities, as well as to meetings, conferences, public appearances, shows, sporting events, and anywhere else our clients need to go. Please consider contacting us for chauffeured services should you be staying at a Toronto-area hotel. A few of the city’s most exclusive hotels will be detailed for prospective visitors, with our focus today tending towards a few major brand name luxury hotels in the downtown core.
Opening early in 2011, the Ritz Carlton Toronto brings one of the world’s most prestigious and well-recognized luxury hotel brands to the busy heart of the city. Centrally located on Wellington Street West across from Roy Thomson Hall, the Ritz Carlton is conveniently positioned in Toronto’s core entertainment district and is likewise very close to the Financial District. Its 53 floors stretch almost 700 feet high, compromising 264 hotel suites and 159 private residences and adding up to 700,000 square feet of floor space. Amenities includes a 7,400-square-foot luxury ballroom capable of accommodating 600 guests, extensive meeting and conference facilities, an exclusive spa and 24-hour fitness centre, and two restaurants plus the Ritz Bar and the Club Level, with all-day fine dining and comfort options.
The first hotel in Toronto to carry the Trump imprimatur of exclusivity and quality joined the skyscrapers of the downtown skyline in January of 2012. Topping 900 feet from the corner of Bay and Adelaide to the tip of its rooftop spire, the Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto sets a new standard for the city’s luxury accommodation. With 260 luxury suites and 109 condominium residences on 65 floors, a relaxing and expansive spa of almost 60,000 square feet, the Exchange Floor meeting rooms, and the elegant new America Restaurant (operated by Oliver & Bonacini), the Trump Toronto has already established itself as a premiere option in the luxury hotel market in Canada’s largest metropolis.
Opened in October of 2012, the global Four Seasons chain’s gleaming new Toronto hotel is located in fashionable Yorkville, at the intersection of Yorkville Avenue and Bay Street. The new Four Seasons sits one block east of the former hotel complex on Avenue Road, which operated for 40 years before closing and being replaced by the state-of-the-art new facility. Like the Ritz Carlton and the Trump Hotel, the Four Seasons towers over 50 floors (55, to be precise) and includes both hotel suites (259) and private luxury condos (210). With a spa of more than 30,000 square feet and fine dining overseen by internationally renowned chef Daniel Boulud, the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto (not to be confused with the new opera house bearing the hotel chain’s name) is a spectacular new entry into the city’s luxury hotel scene.
