The Velvet Couch: Hotels : Canada : Ontario : Toronto : Windsor Arms Hotel
Built in 1927, Windsor Arms gained a distinctive reputation as an intimate luxury hotel during its 64-year history. Closed in 1991, the hotel re-opened its doors in 1999, headed by developer and owner George Friedmann. Mr. Friedmann completely rebuilt the hotel, providing first-class luxury suites fitted with the latest communication and technology for the 21st century, while maintaining its Neo-Gothic architecture. The Windsor Arms has been a preferred haunt for celebrities, political dignitaries and discerning guests who found a treasure in Toronto's trendy Yorkville.
