"A stalwart for classic design and luxury, the Windsor Arms features 28 suites with such features as a Butler service, limestone bathrooms with Molton Brown bath supplies and musical instruments including baby grand pianos, harps and guitars. In contrast to the old-world take on luxury, suite amenities also include iPod docking stations, state-of-the-art sound systems, flat screen TVs and wireless internet access. A must-see venue is The Tea Room, a French-style lobby that has been in operation since 1927."
We were fortunate enough to be front and center for the unveiling of the Jacques Vert Group, Elegant British Brand’s new Spring 2015 Collection. Britain’s premier occasion wear brand, Jacque Vert Group’s new spring line focuses on head-to-toe looks for the Mother of the Bride/Groom, bridesmaids, wedding guests or for the bride herself. Whether an evening or day wedding, cityscape or country wedding – there is something for every woman to look and feel her best. Hosted by Hudson’s Bay and Jacque Vert Group the event was definitely an affair to remember!
Treasure Chest is a brand-new vintage store tucked inside a very, very old space. The wainscotted and leopard-carpeted little cubbyhole of a shop, located on the ground floor of the the Windsor Arms Hotel (est. 1927), is currently home to several dozen glittering, exquisite pieces of handpicked vintage clothing. Before then, as owner Samantha Michelle tells it, it was a Laduree-style tea shop, then a barbershop, then a series of hotel-lobby bars.
There is something very special about enjoying a cup (or two) of afternoon tea with some close friends. Not long ago the Windsor Arms Hotel invited me to indulge in their afternoon high tea service at the beautiful hotel. I was absolutely delighted as I not only love tea, but also am a huge fan of wearing fascinators at any time of the day!
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.
