Canada’s rising popularity among tourists has encouraged big luxury hotel chains to consider opening new hotels there. The Trump Hotel Collection is no different. The luxury hotel group will soon be opening the doors to the Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto. Guests can start living in these champagne and caviar premises from 31 January 2012. The new hotel is expected to provide it guests – both business and leisure travelers – with the utmost luxury, something we have come to associate with Trump hotels. But this new property will also be a landmark of sorts. The 900-foot luxury tower with 65 floors is set to become the tallest residential building in the country.
Guests will benefits from the prime location of the the Trump Toronto hotel. Numerous tourist attractions stand nearby. The new Opera House, the Harbourfront, and numerous museums, galleries and shopping destinations are located close to the hotel. Toronto has only recently “begun to address the strong demand for top-end hospitality,” said Trump Toronto’s general manager Mickael Damelincourt. He added, “Trump Toronto will lead this segment…” The 261-room hotel will provide guests with all the creature comforts and high quality that one expects from a luxury hotel. The rooms will offer stunning views of Toronto city and of Lake Ontario.
The color palette in each of the rooms is inspired by the high-end appeal of champagne and caviar. Blacks, blues, whites and golds come together to create an elegant, luxurious ambience. Expectedly, the furnishing is top quality. Italian Bellino Linens drape the Trump Hotel Collection Beds. In-room amenities include wired and wireless high-speed Internet, flat screen LCD IP televisions and touch panels by the bed to control lights and window drapes. Nespresso Coffee Machines provide a constant stream of the beverage.
The standard rooms offer 550 square feet of space. The suites – available in one-bedroom and two-bedroom varieties – start from 750 square feet in size. The largest of these are the five Trump Executive Suites. These are situated on the 30th floor. Finally, there is the ultra-grand Presidential Suite, which covers a whopping 4,000 square feet and houses two bedrooms, a private dining space and a sound-proof media room.
On the 31st floor stands STOCK, a fine dining restaurant headed by Executive Chef Todd Clarmo. Master Sommelier John Szabo is in charge of the selecting spirits for the bar. The restaurant provides stunning views of the city. Plus, there is a private dining area that can be reserved for more intimate get-together. Guests can also avail of luxury spa treatments or resume their fitness regimens at the hotel’s fitness center. There is also 12,000 square feet of event space that offer brilliant views of the Toronto skyline and offer the best of technology.
In terms of price, the hotel is unsurprisingly expensive. Superior King rooms cost CAD$495 (about US$488). The prices will rise as per the grade of the room in question. But if you are going to be putting up at a Trump hotel, and assuming you have that kind of money to spend, it seems unlikely that disappointments will be in store. But of course, more on that once the Trump Toronto is launched next year.
