The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto Hotel Review: Keeping with the opulent reputation characteristic of the Ritz-Carlton brand, the Ritz-Carlton, Toronto certainly has much to brag about. Its 267 guest rooms and suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows, heated perimeter flooring, wired and wireless high-speed Internet, two-line speaker telephones with private voicemail, twice daily housekeeping and fully stocked honor bars with refrigerators. Rooms on the Club Level add access to a comfy, relaxed lounge overlooking Lake Ontario and a selection of culinary offerings (breakfast, light snacks, hors d’oeuvres, beverages and sweet treats). For more substantial dining options, TOCA by tom brodi presents an exclusively “Canadian” menu with dishes focused on homegrown, naturally raised and organically fresh ingredients. In addition, TOCA Bar serves tapas-style dishes and fresh selections from its raw bar. The outdoor DEQ patio bar boasts urban views of Simcoe Park and the CN Tower, as well as a fire pit, a lengthy Wine Director-selected wine list and a variety of cocktails, including mojitos and caipirinhas that can be customed to your personal taste. The exclusive spa has sixteen treatment rooms (including one “Cloud Nine” suite), a nine-station nail salon with private pedicure cabins, three relaxation lounges, Sun Rooms, a vitality pool, a lap pool, a yoga studio and much more. Guests seeking wedding, meeting or convention space are not forgotten here. The hotel boasts Toronto’s largest luxury ballroom at 7,400 square feet; as a whole it can accommodate up to 600 people, or it can be divided in four sections. There are also other smaller meeting facilities.
