Rolling Out the Red Carpet at Toronto's Premier Film Festival Hotel

Final Preparations Are Underway as The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto Gets Ready to Welcome Guests to the Heart of the Toronto International Film Festival

TORONTO--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2013) -  Forty thousand pounds of linens will be laundered. Two thousand bottles of Champagne and wine will be imported. Mattresses will be slanted at a five-degree incline and black out curtains will be hung. These are only some of the preparations underway as the CAA/AAA 5-diamond award-winning Ritz-Carlton, Toronto prepares to become the premier destination for Hollywood's elite this film festival season.

As part of the preparations, the luxury downtown hotel will unveil four new premium guest suites. Just steps from the red carpet, the new Simcoe suites will feature over 900 square feet of living space and include luxury amenities such as hand-dyed panel wallcoverings with black lacquer trim, floor to ceiling windows, custom stained herringbone patterned hardwood floors, marble bathrooms with standalone soaker tubs, banquette-style dining areas, walk-in closets and access to the exclusive Ritz-Carlton Club Level on the 20th floor.

After a gala event at Roy Thompson Hall or screening at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Oscar hopefuls can indulge in TIFF-inspired cocktails at Ritz Bar, or the newly remodelled outdoor terrace at DEQ Lounge, which will showcase its new look just in time for the festival.

And, getting red-carpet ready is easy with a visit to Travel + Leisure 2013 'World's Best Hotel Spa.' Located on the 5th floor of the hotel, Spa My Blend by Clarins has designed a variety of luxury spa services perfect for the jet-setting traveller. Specialty TIFF services include the Paparazzi Polish, Jet Lag Reviver and the Hydrafacial -- for a last minute boost before facing the cameras.
