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.
Last week, on of Toronto’s Five Star hotels, the Windsor Arms was gracious enough to invite me over for Twilight Tea. Before we headed in for tea, Christine, my lovely host, took me on a beautiful tour of the historical property. I had no idea we had such a little gem nestled in the heart of Yorkville.
A date isn’t really a date if there is no conversation, especially if you’re a new couple learning about each other. Many first dates happen on Valentine’s Day! So you need an activity that will motivate you to talk. Movies? No. Concert? No. Twilight Tea at Windsor Arms Hotel? YES! To prove our point, we went to Windsor Arms Tea Room for a Sisterly Date. Yeah, we’re single, so we had to make do. Windsor Arms Tea Room is a great idea for girlfriends, mothers day, and most importantly Valentine’s Day. Go through our pictures and read about our overall experience below!
On Wednesday, Lataysha, Kim, Danielle and myself went to the Windsor Arms for their High Tea. If you have never been, then it is an experience you should have at least once. Danielle and I have been fortunate enough to have gone a few times at various venues for Mother's Day with our mother & grandmothers, and for Bridal Showers etc.
