The Windsor Arms embodies the elegance of a bygone era: a grand hotel, a Toronto landmark since 1927, recently re-opened as a dazzling, contemporary boutique hotel favored by celebrities visiting the city. Its aura of warmth, elegance and discreet luxury, combined with an exceptional level of service, make it the destination hotel in Toronto. Located in the heart of Toronto's fashionable Yorkville district, the Windsor Arms is very much part of this scene but tucked away in a haven of calm. The lively and dynamic neighborhood is brimming with designer boutiques, sophisticated and trendy restaurants, art galleries and museums. But the Windsor Arms is privately secluded thirty yards from the Golden Strip, shrouded in genteel quiet. Behind the beautiful century-old facade are 28 newly appointed luxury suites with 24-hour butler service. The suites are furnished with mahogany or birch furnishings, lush wall coverings and sumptuous Frette linens and private in-room bar, and equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology. Every suite has a unique 'butler's cupboard': a place for laundry, shoes to be shined or room service trays to be set, so the Butler may retrieve or return them without ever disturbing the guest. The hotel boasts a staff to guest ratio of 1:6, the highest in Canada. The hotel is host to the Courtyard Cafe for exceptional dining. The extraordinary cuisine is served in a breathtaking room with 50 foot ceilings, skylights and limestone walls. Enjoy traditional afternoon tea in the Tea Room, which is transformed to become Toronto's only champagne and caviar bar in the evenings. Club 22 features casual dining, live entertainment and dancing. "The Spa", featuring Darphin, offers fully serviced individual treatment rooms, beauty salon, swimming pool and exercise facilities.
