With the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, the hotelier has returned to its roots. Its very first property, the Four Seasons Motor Hotel, opened its doors to guests here in 1961 under the watchful eye of Isadore Sharp. Over the years, there were three other Four Seasons hotels in the city including the Inn on the Park, which I visited with my parents several times in the 1980s, and the new hotel’s immediate predecessor, a Brutalist-style building at 21 Avenue Road, was, in Sharp’s words, “like driving into a garage.”

Built in 2012, the 55-story tower is one of the tallest buildings in the city and is situated in the trendy Yorkville area of the city.

At the ribbon cutting, the Four Seasons founder proclaimed the new hotel to be “in a category by itself, a true Four Seasons in our hometown, our flagship hotel,” adding that it was “a landmark development for the city of Toronto.”

I arrived, at what is a hotel truly representative of the twenty-first century, after a short flight from New York City. Smart bellmen were stationed at the entrance, opening doors and helping with luggage. Inside soaring ceilings, wooden columns, and carved surfaces contrasted nicely with elegant shades of stone and gold in the tasteful but rather impressive lobby.

Check-in was extremely fast and I was accompanied to the lift by a staff member as I proceeded to my room.
