For decades, Toronto’s Four Sea­sons ho­tel— a Bru­tal­ist stack at Av­enue and Cum­ber­land— wasn’t much to look at. But a 2012 re­build gave the home­town brand a five-star flag­ship prop­erty wor­thy of its rep­u­ta­tion: a 30-storey glass tower that’s part ho­tel, part con­dos. The 259 sun-soaked rooms and suites are decked out with floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows, and el­e­gant stone and wood de­tails. Cana­dian lime­stone bath­rooms fea­ture rain­fall show­er­heads, fast-fill­ing soaker tubs and dig­i­tal screens em­bed­ded in the mir­rors. For some ex­tra R&R, weary glo­be­trot­ters can kick jet lag with gold plump­ing fa­cials in the 30,000-square-foot spa. Se­lec­tions from the ho­tel’s art col­lec­tion—some 1,700 orig­i­nal Cana­dian art­works, in­clud­ing pieces by Alissa Coe and Son­dra Meszaros—dec­o­rate the rooms. And for some ex­tra wattage, Miche­lin-starred chef Daniel Boulud’s epony­mous café is one of the ho­tel’s ma­jor at­trac­tions.
