WHERE TO STAY RITZ-CARLTON TORONTO
A contemporary-Canadian iteration of typical Ritz-Carlton opulence, the 267-room property opened in 2011 and is the closest luxury hotel to the TIFF Bell Lightbox and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Restaurant TOCA by Tom Brodi is a favorite quiet nook for the business crowd, while the hotel’s 23,000-square-foot spa is similarly popular. Past the lobby and featuring views of the CN Tower, DEQ lounge is another local hotspot.
