Less than a week ago, Toronto hotelier Issy Sharp cut the ribbon on the new Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, a 55-storey tower at Bay and Yorkville containing 26 elevators, hundreds of iPads and a $15,000-a-night royal suite. As fond as we were of the old Avenue and Bloor location, we have to admit that the new hotel—the brand’s new global flagship—is a step up. (For anyone wondering, the iconic old Four Seasons is well on its way to becoming condos.)
The interior was designed by Yabu Pushelberg and features over 1,700 works by Canadian artists and a slightly whimsical dandelion motif. There’s also a watering hole and a “casual fine-dining” restaurant masterminded by Michelin-star chef Daniel Boulud, and a massive spa with views over the city. We recently stopped by to take a look.
