A look inside Toronto's latest luxury hotel
Saturday 18 June 2011
Luxury hotel chain Trump has revealed some of the interiors guests can expect at the opening of the Trump Toronto, slated for later this year.
The 65-storey property - set to be Canada's tallest residential building - has been inspired by 'champagne and caviar,' Trump said this week, a scheme which the company described as a "towering toast to luxe."
Highlights include a huge mosaic by Canadian artist Stephen Andrews and a three-dimensional cherry blossom branch behind the reception desk, which was handmade from Czech crystals.
The hotel's 261 guest rooms, which boast views of Toronto's skyline, measure up at a minimum of 550 square feet (51 square meters), says Trump, and come complete with real wood oak flooring and marble countertops.
All suites offer a powder room and fireplaces, along with Nespresso coffee machines and HDTVs, while the hotel's 4,000 square foot (372 sqare meters) 30th-floor suite includes its own soundproofed media room, private dining room, and two and a half baths.
The hotel also offers a Destination Lounge on the 31st floor, with sweeping views of the city, alongside a two-floor spa and wellness center, with ten treatment rooms and a 65-foot (20m) saltwater lap pool.
Trump's new masterpiece is one of several which have been appearing on the Toronto skyline in recent months, several of them new five-star offerings - not bad for a city which had no five-star hotels only four years ago.
The Ritz-Carlton Toronto opened earlier this year, offering 267 rooms and a Tom Brodi restaurant - it was preceded by Thompson Hotels and Le Germain, which both opened top-end properties in 2010.
Next year will see the inauguration of the 65-storey Mandarin-Oriental, a 200-room luxury hotel built on top of the historic "Bishop's Block," one of the city's oldest remaining buildings.
