TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2014) - Located just steps from the red carpet, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto is the premiere address for festival goers during this year's Toronto International Film Festival. From star-studded treatments and a Michelin 2-star chef, to interactive outdoor displays and lobby activations, this luxury hotel in downtown Toronto is the perfect vantage point for film enthusiasts from around the globe.

Whether it's freshly made sushi at Ritz Bar just prior to a gala event across the street at Roy Thompson Hall, or a TIFF-inspired cocktail at DEQ after a screening at Bell TIFF Lightbox, the restaurants and lounges at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto will satisfy any Hollywood craving. From September 3-7th, TOCA is proud to welcome Michelin 2-star Chef Oliver Glowig as he launches the downtown Toronto restaurant's new signature menu, which features daily house-made pastas, and the unique style and flavour combinations for which the highly acclaimed chef is internationally renowned.

With a visit to the luxury hotel's award-winning Spa My Blend by Clarins, Oscar hopefuls can get red-carpet ready with a variety of treatments designed especially for the jet-setting traveller. It's a Done Deal is the perfect solution for those who are short on time, but want instant results and features simultaneous pampering by two therapists in under 30 minutes. Or, for a post-party glow, guests can indulge in the exclusive My Blend Regenerating Facial -- available only in North America at
