Do you remember in my previous post when I talked about some ideas for a winter retreat? Well, we had the privilege to spend a weekend at the ultra luxurious Four Seasons Toronto Hotel. We were lucky enough to be accommodated for the 1 Bedroom Corner Suite for the hubby and baby Lucas too!
Overall, I want to say that the experience was great. From the moment we saw the suite, we were quite impressed. The room was HUGE! The atmosphere was great and the staff made us feel right at home! I’m going to describe the experience in much more detail down below. My advice is that this really is the perfect place for family or an important occasion. Hello, last-minute Valentine’s Date idea!
Four Seasons is known for their personalized and highly attentive service. Every experience and encounter made us feel like VIPs. In a pinch, staff were able to deliver flowers, extra trays and even a microwave for heating up some take-out. Everyone knew our names and addressed us in a professional and courteous manner and it all surpassed my expectations!
This hotel is located in Yorkville, one of the most elegant parts of the city and not saturated with the usual downtown crowds. We look leisurely strolls around the coffee shops and a mandatory visit to the Chanel flagship store in Toronto. Besides from luxury shopping and fine dining, there were some photoshoot spots for me as well. Later in the evening, my friends had no problems visiting us, as the hotel is also one block away from Bay St Subway Station.
Dining and Breakfast: 8/10
The Four Seasons team treated us to a very nice dinner CAFÉ BOULUD. Inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud’s family’s meals in Lyon, the menu features French classics and many unique tastes as well. I ordered the seared scallops and the hubby tried the signature QUENELLE DE BROCHET (lyon-style northern pike quenelle with cognac-lobster sauce). They also have a Winterlicious / Summerlicious Menu if you’re interested.
As for breakfast, nothing stood out to me in particular. I would have to stay it’s the only part of the hotel that didn’t surpass any expectations.
Room Features: 9/10
The room features various gadgets such as an iPad menu, Bose stereo, mirror-TV in the bathroom and 2 flat screen TVs. There were two bathrooms as well as a toddlers crib provided on request. One of the bathrooms was spacious, with a very large bathtub and a view that washes away any stress. The hotel also gave us the little items we needed to take care of Lucas. This included a gifted Honest Company care set, diaper genie and a crib that Lucas mistook for a cute little jail.
I hope you enjoyed my review. If you’re visiting Toronto, this should be one of your luxury hotel options!
PS. As noted from the start, we were lucky enough to get accommodated by the hotel. This blog post was done on my own accord. As always, all opinions are 100% my own!
