Ritz-Carlton Toronto set to open Fall 2010
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Ritz-Carlton, Toronto will be within walking distance to entertainment, shopping areas, sports venues, and the city's business districts. The hotel is surrounded by two parks and all of the 267 rooms will have views of either the city or Lake Ontario. Rooms include floor-to-ceiling windows, Frette linens and luxurious bathroom amenities.
A 23,000 square foot, 16 treatment room spa, referred to by the hotel as the "Urban Sanctuary" will offer an extensive menu of spa services. A fully cardio-equipped fitness center is located on the same floor and features a kinesis center, indoor pool and hot tub.
As part of Ritz-Carlton's ongoing efforts to support a greener economy, the Ritz-Carlton, Toronto will feature a Deep Lake Water Cooling System, which provides an alternative to conventional air-conditioning. According to the hotel's website:
