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.
