Well it’s that time of year again friends – the holidays are in full swing and I am HERE FOR IT. From tree lighting ceremonies to seeing window displays pop up at my favourite destinations in Toronto, I’m in the thick of it this year and it’s making me very happy to say the least. In hopes of inspiring you to live life more magically, I thought I would share a few things happening at one of my favourite places in the city that you can enjoy starting today and all season long. Because after all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year again!
If you haven’t guessed it, I’m obviously talking about Fairmont Royal York. The last year has been a love letter of sorts to the hotel and the memories we have created with them and it’s time again to think of the holiday season and another festive stay with Canela for our little family. But asides from the hotel and it’s incredible amenities during the season, there is so much to look forward to for those of us in and visiting Toronto!
Fairmont Royal York is proud to host time-honoured holiday traditions again in 2021. Seasonal food, festive music, friends and family gathered nearby; these are what memories are made of. Experience the grandest of holiday feelings this year with festive dining and entertainment offerings at Toronto’s landmark hotel.
You can also click here for a very special video we made for the holidays last year that I love.
So what is happening this year that you can take part in alongside Julio and I over the coming week?
