Luxury Hotel Buzz: Shangri-La Opens Soon in Toronto

Shangri-La Toronto

Toronto is witnessing a luxury hotel boom. Trump arrived on the scene in January 2012, with Four Seasons soon following suit. (Did you hear the Four Seasons Toronto, the brand's new flagship, will have iPads in every room?) Next up this August: the Shangri-La Toronto, the second outpost for the upscale hotel brand after Vancouver.

Housed in a new 65-storey glass tower on University Avenue at Adelaide Street in the city’s financial and entertainment districts, the hotel will occupy the building’s first 17 floors, and have 202 guest rooms that are described as “the most spacious” in town.

Notable features include the three-storey atrium, the Miraj Spa by Caudalie Paris, the yoga studio, the indoor pool (the longest of any five-star hotel in Toronto), and the large 24-hour fitness center with sweeping views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Pssst. We hear David Chang is opening a Momofuku restaurant right next to the Shangri-La. For more information, visit www.shangri-la.com/toronto/shangrila/pre-opening
