Legendary Luxury
When the first Ritz-Carlton opened in the 1920s, it set a precedent for luxury accommodation in America. Private baths in each guest room; flowers always freshly cut; world-class gourmet cuisine. That exemplary tradition carries on today at The Ritz-Carlton ¡V and now at The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto. Designed by one of the greatest American architectural practices of our era, the New York City-Based firm of Kohn Pedersen Fox, in association with Toronto's highly regarded Page & Steele, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, is destined to become one of the city's signature building with a distinctive shape that widens as it climbs heavenwards. (It is, quite literally, a structure with flair, which flares.) An elegant composition in blue-tinted glass and limestone.

Legendary Service

Someone once suggested that no main is a hero to his valet. But likely such valets never worked at The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto. Taking our cue from the tradition of impeccable discrete service associated with The Ritz-Carlton, the owners of the Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, can expect to be pampered around the clock. Just examine some of the services and amenities offered. At the ground floor lobby, a 24-hour concierge with doorman and valet service. From here, two high-speed express elevators shuttle residents to the amenities level on the 21st floor, and the Skylobby, there's a daytime concierge on duty, and on the amenities level, a fitness area, a lounge with bar, a screening room, a game room, a board room and a guest suite for visitors.
Legendary City
Are there more starts on King Street's Walk of Fame in Toronto than on Los Angeles's Rodeo Drive? Seem so, some days. In recent years, moviemaking has become a big business in Toronto (or, Hollywood North, as its sometimes called) as movie stars and media moguls discovered the city's charms. But even without the glamour capital epithets, Toronto is unquestionably a big hip city with attitude, swagger and chic. The undisputed business and cultural centre of Canada. For generations, a magnet for newcomers from around the world. Not long ago, the United Nations singled out Toronto as the most multicultural place on the planet. And it's a place which works miraculously well. As the late British actor Peter Ustinov once noted, "Toronto is rather like New York run by the Swiss". A city in constant motion-culturally and commercially. More so now than ever.
