05 Oct The Four Seasons Toronto Grand Opening
The contemporary hotel-condo complex, soars 55 storeys from the corner of Bay St. and Yorkville Avenue and includes 259 hotel rooms, 210 high-end condos and a gallery with over 1,700 commissioned paintings, sculptures and designs all showcasing Canadian talent. The penthouse sold for a record $28 million to an international buyer, and its preconstruction condos set a new record at $1,200 per square foot.
The luxury chain’s new flagship hotel is the newest Four Seasons, the 90th in the world-renowned five-star chain and is a dream finally brought to life in granite, glass, glamour and most of all in the heart of Toronto.
The floating marble staircase leads you to Café Boulud, the latest from chef Daniel Boulud which is far more bold and contemporary than the classic Studio Café. Right below the restaurant is dbar, featuring what is sure to become the most coveted seat in town — a semi-circular couch that would be sitting right at the bustling corner of Bay and Yorkville, were it not for the wall of glass that keeps the bar both separate from and part of the streetscape at the same time.
The hotel rooms are consummately Four Seasons and equipped with state-of-the-art gadgets, like an iPad, that guests have come to expect. All of those additional items plus the plumped pillows and fluffy bath robes are sure to lure even more big spenders to the city. All these five-star amenities definitely come with a high price tag of $400-a-night and up.
