After making a mark globally, Four Seasons will soon be returning to its hometown Toronto in summer this year. The king of hospitality industry, Four Seasons, has expanded to over 86 hotels in 35 countries after making humble beginnings 50 years ago. Some of their properties include the Four Seasons Bora Bora, a private island that can be rented for $ 1 Million a week.
