Toronto Welcomes Luxury Hotel – The Ritz-Carlton
This 53-story, luxury five-star hotel and condominium residence in downtown Toronto will be an architectural masterpiece containing both classic and contemporary design. 267 rooms and 135 condominium residences will be divided into three main areas. Storeys 6-20 will contain all of the rooms and facilities for hotel guests while the condominium residences will be located on storeys 22-52 (a private lobby and amenity centre for residents will be located on the 21st and 22nd storey).
At story 26, the tower’s south wall will slop outward, forming an architectural feature designed to compliment the curves of Roy Thomson Hall across the street. At it’s base, the tower will feature a large glass exterior. The podium will also hold two large ballrooms, fine-dining restaurants, conference and meeting facilities to attract high-end conference and meeting business. The grand ballroom will host leading social events and functions.
In addition to all the grandeur, the top level of the podium will house a world class 23,000 sq. ft. spa, which will be Toronto’s largest and most luxurious!
“This is the first Ritz-Carlton combined hotel and condominium residence in Canada and will be the only Toronto hotel to offer The Ritz-Carlton level of luxury and service,” said Michael Beckley, vice-president of development for Marriott International Inc., the parent company of The Ritz-Carlton.
Toronto Mayor David Miller said, “The arrival of Toronto’s first five-star hotel is another sign of our city’s renaissance. Not only will this hotel create hundreds of jobs, it will also help attract visitors from around the world to Toronto.”
We can’t wait until this luxury hotel opens. Nothing quite compares to the Ritz for upscale family travel!
