TORONTO — Inspired by the glamour and flare of the entertainment district, the beauty of Toronto’s waterfront and the city’s deep history of rail travel, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto enters a new era with a dynamic and luxurious design direction.
Led by award-winning global interior-design firm DesignAgency, the hotel now boasts newly reimagined guestrooms and suites on the hotel’s Club-Level floors. The 20th-floor Club Lounge — an exclusive private lounge with picturesque views of the CN Tower and Lake Ontario — also debuts an enhanced look and feel.
“This new design direction is a celebration of the history and the spirit of Toronto,” says GM Franck Arnold. “Our world-class, dynamic city is a very special place within The Ritz-Carlton portfolio and we’re proud to unveil something truly spectacular for our guests.”
The elevated Club Lounge experience now features a sophisticated, streamlined design and new culinary offerings inspired by the city. Rich, saturated colours, luxurious marble and greenery create the perfect frame for the spectacular views.
The guestrooms pay homage to the history of the hotel’s physical location, near the site of the first Ontario (Upper Canada) Parliament buildings. Luggage detailing and bold, straight design lines take inspiration from the rail system — the pillar of early Canadian travel. Glamorous finishings and cinematic portraits, shot by Canadian photographer and director Caitlin Cronenberg, add a nod to the hotel’s deep connection to The Toronto International Film Festival.
Redesigned Club-Level suites, including the 2,400-sq.-ft. Ritz-Carlton Suite, feature thoughtfully planned living spaces that balance business and personal needs and features bespoke furniture.
The award-winning Spa My Blend by Clarins has also revealed a newly redesigned spa-arrival experience, showcasing the services and products from My Blend, advanced skincare developed by Dr. Olivier Courtin.
