Downtown Toronto Meeting Facilities Make Holiday Celebrations Feel Magical

The Renaissance Toronto Downtown Hotel's Seasonal Menus and Renovated Spaces Add Festivity to Every Event

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2014) - As the most special time of year, the holiday season inspires creativity in every occasion, whether it's gift-giving or celebratory soirees. That's why those planning memorable luncheons, company parties or holiday dinners this season turn to one Toronto luxury hotel ahead of all others: the Renaissance Toronto Downtown Hotel. With its stylish restaurant, renovated meeting spaces and indulgent menus, this hotel makes every holiday gathering feel like the best gift under the tree.

The festivities begin at Arriba, the hotel's stylish restaurant where local ingredients are transformed daily into global dishes. On weekdays between December 8th and December 19th, however, the restaurant will offer a special three-course, table d'hôte menu for just $24 per person that makes it easy to get into the seasonal spirit.

This Christmas menu features both traditional favourites (think roasted turkey breast with cranberry-and-orange compote) and more exploratory options like black-truffle sacchetti. Ideal for social and corporate holiday lunches, Arriba's Christmas menu is offered from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The downtown Toronto hotel's recently renovated meeting facilities present another way for bigger groups to celebrate this holiday season. From the 300-person Northern Lights Ballroom, to the 60-person La Terraza room, to the one-of-a-kind Skybox suites overlooking Rogers Centre, the hotel offers a diversity of spaces that cannot be matched.

Equally impressive are the holiday menus. Both plated and buffet options are available for lunch and dinner, and the choices reflect the hotel's reputation for catering excellence. Roasted sweet potato with maple cream and toasted pumpkin seeds, for example, set a seasonal tone at lunch, while satisfying entrees range from pan-seared salmon to roasted Ontario turkey.

Dinner options are even more abundant. Vegetarian dishes like butternut-squash ravioli and mushroom risotto with sweet peas accommodate modern palates, while prime rib, baked Ontario whitefish and spice-rubbed pork loin ensure guests leave satisfied. Freshly brewed Starbucks coffee, desserts like dark chocolate-and-berry bread pudding and extensive wine lists round out the culinary offerings.

Groups celebrating at the hotel can also look forward to working with a dedicated and experienced events team to ensure a seamless afternoon or evening. And with special holiday-party room rates starting at just $119 per night, there's no better way to experience one of the finest luxury hotels in Toronto.

From exceptional downtown Toronto meeting space, to exciting holiday menus at Arriba, the Renaissance Toronto Downtown Hotel makes sure that this holiday season will be something everyone can savour.
