The Windsor Arms Hotel is known for it’s famous TIFF events as well The Tea Room and the other amazing restaurants. Now – there is a new addition to the Windsor Arms Hotel. Earlier this month I headed to the Windsor Arms Hotel for the exclusive launch of the new vintage fashion and accessories shop, The Treasure Chest. There was a constant flow of champagne – hello, I was in heaven, thank you very much.
The Windsor Arms Hotel is an acquired taste. If you are looking for that 1920’s Humphrey Bogart, Great Gatsby vibe, you have come to the right place. While some prefer modern and trendy, others measure luxury in history and culture. The moment I emerged from my Uber onto what felt like a side street in London town, I was greeted by a uniformed bellhop who held my door and directed me to the lobby elevator. I rode to the fourth floor and exited onto a dimly lit hallway with cream and black walls. Lined with black and white photographs of Hollywood’s finest—Ali MacGraw, Robert Redford, Barbra Streisand and Audrey Hepburn, this place was dripping in old world charm.
On May 23rd, I had the pleasure hosting some of my favourite local foodies for a Brunch in the City at the historical Windsor Arms. A collaboration between celebrity chef and host Christine Tizzard (Best Recipes Ever) and Windsor Arms chef Maxime Roy, we enjoyed a delicious (and nutritious) family-style brunch using Canada’s own favourite cooking oil- Canola!
