G and I spent a let’s-celebrate-Valentine’s-Day-early weekend at the Windsor Arms Hotel. We have said for years we’d give it a try and its number came up Saturday. The Windsor Arms was built in 1927 and today, along with its (finally) improving Courtyard Cafe restaurant, offers 28 rooms for guests and a staff/client ratio of 6:1, which is probably the highest in the city … until the Ritz-Carlton arrives in a couple years time. The design was (yawn) bland and boring as is usual with anything done by Brian (aka “Boring) Gluckstein. He is SO over-rated!
We stayed in a deluxe suite on the fourth floor at the front of the building. It was a very nice stay and we were lucky to have both willariah and Blee come visit and enjoy the suite for a spell with us. G used the spa and would have used the workout room had I not done the packing! … oops, see what I did below.
And here’s a narrated tour courtesy of me.
RYC: Actually Copeland is one of my favorites and of his Appalachian Spring is right up there.
Wow! That looks like a fantastic way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! The bed looks very inviting and I would love to try that jacuzzi…RYC: THANK YOU! We are extremely excited to finally be back in T-dot!! We are leaving for a few weeks but will be back soon enough. A good friend of mine and former teammate is on a masters team i’d like to join. what are you thoughts of the Toronto Tri Club? I was thinking of joining as well…I thrive in group training
Nice to get away for a time. Some people feel that no color is elegant. I on the other hand feel the right use of color adds to the total atmosphere of the room. Still looks good though. Two right shoes
nice suite..happy early valentine’s day to both of you. cool tour, nice to put a voice to the face we always see here;)
i love dynasty. it’s fantastic. thanks for having me over! such a gorgeous room and lovely experience. i wonder why they gave you three strawberries. and most of all, happy valentine’s day to both of you.
Ooh… narrated tour. It looks nice, I think you probably want to see a bit more colour? It’s nice to get away every so often.
You live such a grand life.
