Go Big or Go Home | Four Seasons Toronto

We had a blast during our 4 day/3 night adventure in Toronto and really wanted to stay somewhere awesome our last night since we hadn’t done a family vacation in a couple of years (well other than my parents coming to Hampi, but that wasn’t really a vacation!).

The #1 hotel in Toronto across pretty much all platforms is easily the Four Seasons. I’d never stayed in one and we thought for this big city vacay, it’s go big or go home so we booked it for our final night! Click here for rates and availability.

I FINALLY get to take a photo of my first macaroon & my nails aren’t painted, figures! 

Originally we stayed down by Union Station, but Four Seasons is over on the other side by the ROM (top museum) in the York area. Of course, it’s a very nice fancy hotel and there were Lamborghini’s parked out in the valet. My mom was like what do I wear… and I’m like mom if we want to look rich, we can wear anything we want, I mean remember that year Britney wore trucker hats and no shoes?

The lobby of the hotel was amazing in light grey, pink, and blue with loads of flowers all over the place. It’s the prettiest lobby I’ve ever seen actually.

Four Seasons Toronto Review

Like the lobby, it was modern and sleek in simple light colors, mostly grey. We got a room with two beds since there were 3 of us and it had great views over the city from every direction, even over the bathtub.

When you come back from your evening out, they’ve pulled the curtain, put out slippers by the bed, dimmed the lights, put out new towels, and had the room all ready for bed.

four seasons toronto reviewWe weren’t there long enough to talk with the concierge, but because of the area we went to the ROM for the afternoon then took a cab down to the distillery district since it was our last night and we still hadn’t been. Yorkville Road on the way to the ROM had really cute (but expensive) shops.

The only confusing part about the Four Seasons was breakfast the morning we checked out. We left early to drive back to Ohio and just wanted coffee to go. The downstairs lobby/bar was were we were told to order complimentary breakfast but since we got to-go coffee’s instead of eating in it was $2.25 per coffee. I couldn’t show you the breakfast as it was to-order not just sitting out, except for some pay to takeaway snacks.

There was a spa, indoor pool, and a big lovely balcony with sun chairs outside the pool room. You have to walk through the spa to get to the pool. For an indoor pool, it was really nice. I think Toronto doesn’t have many outdoor pools because it gets so cold, because I didn’t see any hotel with rooftop pools.

Many thanks for the Four Seasons for inviting us to stay in return for a review, all opinions are my own.
