Beloved equally by international jet-setters and Toronto’s movers and shakers, historic Yorkville has been the place to be since first incorporating in 1853. Originally, its red-brick homes on narrow tree-lined streets provided peaceful respite from the buzz of the city. Today, in the very heart of Toronto, many of those stately Victorians—now housing chic restaurants, designer boutiques and cutting-edge galleries—nestle alongside elegant condominiums and towering office buildings. The transformation has made Yorkville one of Toronto’s most sensational neighbourhoods.

Opening mid-2012, the new Four Seasons Hotel Toronto soars 55 storeys into the sky, two short blocks east of its original location. Walls of windows frame magnificent city vistas, from downtown skyscrapers to mansions perched atop wooded ravines in nearby Rosedale, one of the city’s toniest addresses. The Hotel’s outside views complement its Yabu Pushelberg–designed, light-filled interior. The lobby boasts extra-tall windows, a cathedral ceiling and a floating glass staircase connecting to Café Boulud, while oversized guest rooms offer floor-to-ceiling views.

Perfectly placed in Toronto’s most stylish and walkable shopping district, the Hotel is also ideally located for culture buffs. The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts is nearby, and the Royal Ontario Museum is a short walk away. In the home city of Four Seasons corporate headquarters, the Concierge team offers a profound insider’s perspective. Wherever your interests lead, you can count on the team to make it happen—from securing the best theatre seats to creating an absorbing itinerary for exploring Toronto’s wonderfully multicultural neighbourhoods.

Inspirational dining: Three-star Michelin chef Daniel Boulud brings a new level of gastronomic sophistication to Toronto. A more casual version of its Manhattan namesake, Café Boulud serves cuisine rooted in the French culinary tradition and inspired by the rhythm of the seasons.

Serene sanctuary: In the city’s largest luxury hotel spa, pampering treatments reflect Toronto’s cultural mosaic. The lavish couples’ suite and a sparkling pool area, permeated by fragrant organic essences, induce idyllic relaxation.

Milestone occasions: Two glass-enclosed ballrooms are the first choice for memorable events. A glittering veil of Czech crystal drapes over the walls of windows, providing a splendid backdrop for any celebration, from reunions to weddings to film-fest soirées.
