Made-to-measure travel; please, go away! :-)

Puttin’ on the Ritz (Carlton) in Toronto

I know you’re humming the tune… (“If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to why don’t you go where fashion sits -Puttin’ on the Ritz”…) My family just returned from a long weekend stay at the new Ritz Carlton in Toronto. We had a fabulous time.

The rooms are classically decorated, and extremely comfortable – and the views aren’t bad either (that shot of the CN Tower was taken from my room window).

When we walked in, I thought my 11 year old daughter wanted to move into the bathroom – besides being tastefully decorated, the heated tiles and tv in the mirror were lovely touches. 

We had great food at Toca restaurant (named for TOronto CAnada).

And, of course, we enjoyed the pool.

The hotel also has a terrific exercise room, spa, Toca bar, DEQ charcuterie, and a cheese cave!

From the moment we walked into the door, and were warmly welcomed by name, we experienced friendly and courteous service. All hotel staff really went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. We really enjoyed making the hotel’s acquaintance, and can’t wait for a return visit.

  1. Hi Sheila,
    We are going to the Ritz Carlton in August, so I let their guest relations person, Willis, know that I read your thorough review. Looks like a fun place!
    We are looking forward to our visit.
    I follow your blog and follow you on Twitter as well. On Twitter, I’m @F5th for Fab Fresh Fun with Friends & Family. Have a blog too, called Sunrise Learning Lab, but it is more geared to homeschooling. If you ever come across neat travel opportunities for homeschoolers or if I do, it would be fun to do a review for you as a guest on your blog. We like to travel and integrate travel into our homechooling, but my blog only briefly touches upon that.
    Have a happy weekend!
