2014 Presents an Exceptional Opportunity to Experience Toronto

The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto Shows Visitors the Best of the City During Chinese New Year and All Year Long

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Jan 15, 2014) - Whether one observes the Western or Chinese New Year, January 2014 is a time for new resolutions, new opportunities and new experiences. The latter of these has inspired The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto to create a travel experience that encourages guests to explore the city through a unique cultural lens informed by Chinese customs.

When visitors arrive in Canada's most dynamic metropolitan city they will be ushered from Toronto Pearson International Airport through vibrant downtown Toronto and to the doorstep of this magnificent, 263-room luxury hotel. Clean lines, rich woods, Canadian-inspired motifs and sumptuous textures articulate an elegant welcome for international guests.

As part of the Experience Canada Package, visitors will enjoy accommodations in a corner suite for five to seven nights. This allows ample time to take in the view from the suite's floor-to-ceiling windows that capture either the Toronto skyline or Lake Ontario. Heated perimeter flooring keeps the Canadian chill at bay, while Frette linens, a Bose entertainment system and Nespresso coffee machine attend to guests' creature comforts.

To capture the true essence of Toronto's dynamic food and wine scene, guests will enjoy one of two unique experiences that highlight the city's best local products. During their stay, guests can choose a guided tour of the award-winning Niagara Wine region, where they'll sample wines from the hotel's signature restaurant TOCA's own varietals; or nosh and nibble their way through Toronto's most popular local food markets with a member of The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto's internationally trained culinary team.

As Toronto's most centrally located luxury hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto is the perfect vantage point from which to explore, and is only steps away from some of Toronto's best landmarks and attractions including the CN Tower, one of the world's tallest buildings and the TIFF Bell Lightbox -- home to the annual Toronto International Film Festival. Shopping enthusiasts will love the hotel's proximity to world-class shopping at both the Eaton Centre and 'Mink Mile' -- Toronto's equivalent to Rodeo Drive.

To make its Chinese guests feel right at home, visitors will also encounter thoughtful cultural touches, like a tea setup featuring a kettle and slippers as a welcome amenity. Additionally, they will enjoy access to the Club Level where they can enjoy a selection of local food and beverage from the 20th floor Club Lounge.
