Four Seasons Hotel TorontoIn its newest incarnation, opened in 2012 and soaring 55 stories at the corner of Bay and Yorkville, the Four Seasons Toronto embodies founder Isadore Sharp’s vision to focus on the guest, which has positioned the brand as a leader in the luxury hotel market. This is the flagship property, arguably Toronto’s most elegant hotel and a blueprint for the brand’s subsequent hotels globally. It’s the first hotel in Canada ever to be awarded both the AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star ratings. The contemporary design aesthetic from Yabu Pushelberg brings sophisticated neutral tones throughout the spacious rooms. The sunlit, ninth-floor spa is a favorite among both visitors and locals.

The New Four Seasons in Toronto
This location is now the new flagship hotel for the brand. Local design firm Yabu Pushelberg aimed for surprises around every corner with the design of the hotel. From the 50 foot fenced ceilings (the fence pattern is also replicated in its carpeting) to the dandelion displays throughout the hotel, the experience for the guest elicits a "wow" response. Alyssa Coe's dandelions are echoed throughout the hotel, which symbolize your wishes coming true. The Four Seasons now is home to the largest luxury day spa in the city (and of the brand), with a 30,000 square foot space that includes a pool, a wrap around patio, 17 different treatment rooms and hair/nail salon. With the addition of Daniel Boulud's restaurants, Cafe Boulud and dbar, Four Seasons has really raised the standard for luxury hotels in Toronto.
