Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

From its high-end decor to its high-tech amenities, the 267-room Ritz-Carlton exudes a luxurious vibe. The design style is a blend of modern and traditional; the lobby, for example, features large open arches, wood-paneled walls, trendy mid-century modern furniture, high ceilings with funky fixtures -- and the occasional large marble leaf embossed on the tile floor. The sleek rooms, decorated in neutral colors with jewel-toned accents, are massive (even the standard deluxe ones). The large marble bathrooms are impressive, with separate showers and tubs, heated floors, and TVs in the mirrors. But with top-notch luxury comes over-the-top prices: the restaurant, lounge, and spa are super expensive, and the fee for Wi-Fi may make some guests feel nickel-and-dimed.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a convenient Entertainment District location, within walking distance to many attractions

The Ritz-Carlton is located in Toronto's Entertainment District, and blocks away from the Distillery District and Financial District. This prime spot puts the hotel within walking distance of numerous attractions, including the Roy Thomson Hall performance venue .

Once an industrial park, Toronto's Entertainment District is now a bustling area filled with nightclubs, theaters, and music venues. Highlights include the Roy Thomson Hall, home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Film Festival, and the 12.7-acre Rogers Centre development that features the Toronto Blue Jays' stadium. The nearby Financial District is composed of skyscrapers occupied by law firms, corporate headquarters, and offices, while the Distillery District is one of Toronto's historic gems. The district got its name from the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, formerly in operation in the area as the largest distillery in the world. Claiming the largest sample of Victorian-era architecture in North America, the Distillery District is a cultural hotspot that features numerous shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
