Luxury Awaits In Toronto

Thursday, September 29, 2016


It's incredibly hard to believe that BlogPodium 2016 has come and gone.  It was a fantastic event and dare I say, perhaps the best yet?  It felt slightly more relaxed, but the energy was still there.  With some new features (Speed Dating) and a beautiful location, it was all in all, an extremely amazing day.

While in Toronto, I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the breathtaking Trump Toronto Hotel.  I knew that this hotel was amazing, but it wasn't until I set eyes on the lobby that I understood just how incredible it was.

My little design loving heart was pitter pattering as I approached the front desk (I was totally taking a video for Snapchat!).  The attention to detail was more than apparent and I couldn't get enough.  I was greeted with the warmest welcome and a deliciously warm cloth to wipe my hands.

The 65-storey hotel is perfectly located.  I basically plan everything around where Union Station is and it took me no more than 10 mins to walk to and from in almost a direct route!  As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the city, I prefer to be able to easily navigate my stay there!

An important aspect of this hotel's mission, is to make you feel at home.  Hallways are designed to mimic apartment buildings and as a result, they are warm and welcoming.  Each guest receives a personalized service of an attache, who's there to help make your stay the absolute best.  They even take the time to gather as much information about you prior to your arrival - likes, dislikes, etc so that they can customize your stay as much as possible.

My one-bedroom suite was spacious, detailed, beyond comfortable and featured touch panel controls!  It boasted 750-square feet of living space, including a powder room, entry closet, living space (with bar), workspace and of course a generous sized master bedroom.  The all marble ensuite had...wait for it...a tv in the mirror, large soaker tub and all glass shower, plus gloriously heated floors.  I adored the campaign style double sink vanity. I can't deny that this was the most spectacular suite that I've ever stepped foot in and I officially need a velvet couch at home!

Surrounded by fantastic city views and a peek at the waterfront, this room was everything and more.  I couldn't help but take in all of the design elements once again.  Chrome hardware paired with the most elegant trim and perfectly selected light fixtures paired with luxe drapery.  Ahhh, it was such a wonderful space!


We dined at the America Restaurant (my delicious meal featured tomatoes from Prince Edward County!) and toured the spectacular Sky and Wellness Suites.  You guys, they were something straight out of a movie!  I still get goosebumps thinking of it.  It was just incredible, seeing such an exquisitely designed space.  The gorgeousness didn't stop there.  The stunning details were even more apparent on the Exchange Floor, which houses all of the meeting suites (which can be set up to your liking and for your specific event requirements).

You all know how important family is to me and that I appreciate details.  I just found that this hotel made these both a priority in a way that you felt like you were important to them.  You aren't just another guest.  That's pretty darn amazing.  I had a little more time to laze around on Sunday, so I took advantage of the in-room dining service and just sat back and relaxed.  The sun was streaming through the windows and the slow pace was absolute perfection after a busy day at BlogPodium. I was especially thankful for the turndown service the night before.  I walked into the room (exhausted) to the most relaxing music, a bottle of water bedside and slippers perfectly placed.  Dreams!

such a delicious meal and the grapefruit juice was no doubt the best I've ever had!

Fun fact!  The Trump Toronto is a both a hotel that also has over 100 residences.  This is where the distinct Champagne and Caviar decor theme can be seen.  Champagne (cream and stainless steel decor) is for the residences and the Caviar decor (bronze and black) for the hotel.  Another attention to detail that you can't help but notice.

My stay was magical.  From the stunning Swarovski crystal art instalment behind the front desk, to the attache, to the trim details to the turndown service.  Everything just made me smile more and more.  It was a stay that I won't soon forget.  The amenities were incredible and the comforts were embraced, but my design heart walked away completely inspired and in awe of such a beautiful hotel.

Have you stayed?  Did you feel like it was just one warm hug after another?

***The Trump Toronto kindly provided me with a complimentary stay for one of the two nights that I stayed.  All opinions are completely my own.  My stay was simply amazing***


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a little note!
