The Four Seasons Toronto

The Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto is an award winning 5 star hotel in Toronto’s Yorkville district. I stayed at their property this past February and was amazed at their high quality customer service from check-in to check out.

The Room

I stayed in the premier king room which was the best part about arriving to Toronto after a long flight from Italy. I arrived before check-in time and my room was ready. The Four Seasons also have an app where you can check-in through your phone ahead of time.

When I opened the door, I was greeted with chocolate covered strawberries and macarons which was quite an emotional discovery after not having eaten anything on the plane for 8 hours (I refuse to eat plane food! Economy meals are not fit for human consumption!)

The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom had a t.v inside of the mirror (super cool!) as well as a separate bathtub and shower.

I usually wake up very early when I travel in order to explore the city without the crowds and get some great photos done, which is why I love having a Nespresso machine in the room so I can have a coffee before leaving when the sun rises.

The Spa

The Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto is not only a great option for travellers visiting Canada, but also locals who want a spa getaway without leaving the city. The indoor pool, jacuzzi, and spa treatments are all located inside of the hotel. They have a long list of treatments for both men and women, including nail, body treatments, and massages. Perfect birthday gift! You can check the price list here.

Dining

My favourite part about the hotel was the dining! The Four Seasons Toronto offers in-room dining, the D-Bar, and Cafe Boulud.

French Chef Daniel Boulud has created a wonderful seasonal menu that is based on his French roots.  What we ordered:

TERRINE DE FOIE GRAS
pistachio and puff granola, fresh raspberry and raspberry coulis, toasted sourdough ($26)

POULPE
seared octopus, sugar pea salad, tangerine, piment d’espelette, aioli
($21)

8OZ BEEF TENDERLOIN
brussels sprouts, squash, celeriac, madeira jus, shallot dressing
($68)

GRAPEFRUIT GIVRÉ
sesame halva, rose loukoum, grapefruit sorbet
($13)

Breakfast

I am a huge fan of great hotel breakfasts, and after having travelled non-stop for the last 7 years, I’d like to consider myself a breakfast expert. The breakfast at the Cafe Boulud is not the traditional buffet but is an a la carte choice. Our server was lovely and went out of her way to make the table look extra nice when she realized I wanted to take photos. The coffee was good and wasn’t the usual American coffee option (sorry, I live in Italy!) and both the espresso and cappuccino were great! What we ordered:

Overall rating: 5/5 The staff at the Four Seasons Toronto go out of their way to help you and make sure your stay is amazing. The food is high quality,  the room is great, and the bed is very comfortable. The location is in downtown and perfect for visiting Toronto. Highly recommended.
