If you don’t already know, my husband and I have been living with my in-laws for about a year now. You can imagine that it gets a little uncomfortable at times in that we can’t roam free in our underwear and other things that married couples do…Thank goodness for Staycations. Honestly, staycations are a blessing in disguise especially for a newly-wed couple like us. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my in-laws but getting some much privacy is always a nice little treat.
Four Seasons Toronto treated us to a weekend away in town. We arrived after work and immediately felt welcomed and relaxed. Upon arrival, we were surprised with delicious treats and a personalized note from Alex the Social Media Manager (hi Alex)!
We decided that before we headed out for dinner that we’d go check out the pool area and sunbathe on the outdoor patio. This pool is seriously the city’s best kept secret. The area is well lit, with a large hot tub tucked away in the corner. After our dip, we went out for a romantic stroll through the Yorkville towards Koreatown and treated ourselves to some ice cream for dessert.
On Saturday morning, we slept in and slowly made our way down to Café Boulud for some brunch! This was my second time in the dining area but it always seems to catch all my senses. The new dining room was designed by London-based designer Martin Brudnizki. The vintage-inspired ambiance is a perfect mix of eclectic colours and hardwares. I had the New Yorker (Smoked Salmon and Bagel) while my husband went for the classic Eggs Benedict. We took our time to consume our meals – long enough to have more than one cup of coffee!
All in all, travel is wonderful and really great for the soul, but travelling can get very exhausting. Staycations are a thing and they’re a thing to look forward whether it be to rediscover your city, rekindle the romance or reset your mind and soul. Thank you, Four Seasons Toronto for hosting an amazing time and being our home away from home for a weekend!
