We recently visited the Ritz-Carlton Toronto for a special occasion, and it exceeded our expectations in every way. For your next special occasion, if you are looking to treat yourself to a luxurious getaway or staycation, this place should be on your list. I’m going to give you five reasons why a visit to the Ritz-Carlton Toronto should be top of your list for your next special occasion.
Whether you book a few treatments, a couples massage, or just use the spa day pass, you will enjoy spending time in this space. Don’t feel like getting treatments but want to relax? Get the all day spa pass. The spa pass gives access to the Salt Water Lap Pool, Hot Tub, Sauna, Experience Showers, Eucalyptus Steam Room, Green Tea Infused Vitality Pool, Fitness Centre, Relaxation Lounge, and Co-Ed Sanctuary. The co-ed relaxation room has a huge skylight which gives you beautiful views of the city. Imagine sitting down with your love, with the views of Toronto surrounding you with a cup of tea or glass of wine in hand – perfection right?
The Ritz-Carlton Club® Level
The club level takes your relaxing and luxurious vacation and wraps it in indulgence. One of the benefits of the Ritz-Carlton Club Level is the continuous complimentary culinary offerings throughout the day. This includes breakfast, light lunch, hors d’ oeuvres, alcoholic beverages, and sweets. The Ritz-Carlton Club Level allows you and your partner to sit with a glass of champagne and take in the best views of Toronto & The CN Tower. Go ahead, spoil yourself. You deserve it!
There are many dining options at the Ritz-Carlton Toronto, and my recommendation for a special occasion is definitely Toca. From their collaboration with Chef Oliver Glowig, one of Rome’s most celebrated culinary leaders, to the feeling that surrounds you immediately upon entering, this place is designed for special occasions.
Another reason I love Toca is the TOCA Cheese Cave which offers 35 varieties selection of perfectly aged local as well as international cheeses. You can see their upcoming cheese cave events here. Toca offers special occasions menus throughout the year; you can see their Valentine’s day one here.
There are many hidden gems at the Ritz-Carlton Toronto, and all you need to access them is call or email, and the staff will create a personalized experience for you. Whether that is a private dinner at the Chef’s table or a romantic dinner for two in the wine cellar, your special occasion can be as unique as you want it to be.
We visited for our 10th Wedding anniversary in December, and once we checked in, we didn’t leave the hotel until check out. With all the great options like the spa, the club floor, dining we didn’t need to leave. But if you are looking to explore the area, The Ritz-Carlton Toronto is right in the centre of it all. It is steps away from Roy Thompson Hall, which is great for people watching in the summer or taking in a concert experience. The Red Carpet for TIFF is literally in front of the lobby doors. The hotel is walking distance to many great attractions like the Air Canada Centre, TIFF Bell Lightbox, CN Tower and the Entertainment District.
If you are looking to spoil yourself in Toronto, this Ritz-Carlton Toronto is a great choice. Happy celebrating!
