Mandarin Oriental looks very nice.

By the way the Ritz will not be the first, but likely the second five star hotel in Toronto.

The Hazelton in Yorkville is planned to be a five star hotel and it is currently nearing completion.

Everyone needs to drop the boxifobia--there's nothing wrong with a boxy building.

I went on the Ritz Carlton Toronto site and this is what I dug up.


Cross Section plan


I took this screencap of Ritz in the skyline.

lolol. It looks like they just photochopped a render of the Ritz and stuck it on the skyline. Isn't the taller flat side supposed to be facing the city?

Nice. I never realized the top was that slanted before.

I like the base of the Chicago Mandarin Oriental - looks more integrated into the tower.
