For the past few years of the Toronto International Film Festival, the Four Seasons Toronto in Yorkville has earned a reputation as the mecca for celebrity peeping plebes and starry-eyed, Sharpie-marker toting autograph stalkers.
Now the hotel has a more delectable distinction as Canada’s priciest city-situated accommodation, according to a list compiled by TravelMag.com.
Catching a bit of shuteye in the most affordable double room at this luxurious 55-storey hotel in October will cost you US$532.
Regrettably that doesn’t account for the film-themed cocktails like the King’s Speech or Slumdog Millionaire you will undoubtedly charge to your room from the hotel’s renowned dBar.
But you can always pocket the matches for free, right?
Coming in at number two is the Ritz-Carlton in both Montreal and Toronto.
For the elegantly toupéed, the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto will welcome you open-armed for $464 a night.
How does it stack up to the opposite coast?
Staying at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver, Canada’s eighth most expensive hotel in a city, costs $358 a night.
Naturally, our recently recession-free cousins to the south have outdone Canadian’s expensive taste with New York City mainstay the Soho House. Staying there will cost you $1189 a night for the most affordable double room.
If you’re hoping to spend big across the pond in the U.K., look no further than London, one of the world’s most expensive cities to live or visit. Renting the most affordable deluxe room with two queen beds at the Bulgari Hotel and Residences – the city’s priciest hotel – will set you back C$1011.75.
But it pales in comparison to La Belle Paris, the city of love, lights and apparently lavish accommodations where a night at Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière costs $1239.42 for the most affordable room mid-October. Well worth the price if to you – “slumming it” – means resting your head in rooms adorned with mahogany, silk and velvet.
Japan’s priciest is the Ritz Carlton in Tokyo, which starts at $550 a night but well worth the view from the city’s tallest office building.
