Examiner.com – Toronto is the new ‘It’ spot for spas, but Elmwood Spa still appeals
The Toronto spa scene is booming. With new luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton, the Shangri-La, Trump Hotel and the Four Seasons Hotel springing up through the city like sunflowers in a Tuscan field, it’s an exciting time to be an urban wellness junkie – especially when these properties come with 5-star spas. At the same time, it’s reassuring to know that what we’ve had and loved for years isn’t getting lost in the spa shuffle.
So let’s hear it for aging gracefully. It’s Elmwood Spa’s 30th birthday, and this tried-and-true downtown spa with four spacious floors, an airy pool area, two restaurants, fresh juice bar and blue-tiled vision of a whirlpool in the women’s change room isn’t losing sleep about hitting the big 3-0.
