Ritz-Carlton Ballroom Foyer

Ritz-Carlton Ballroom

Located on the 2nd floor and through a private set of elevators, Toronto’s largest luxury ballroom accommodates up to 600 guests in a space that can be divided into 4 sections. With a soaring 18 foot ceiling and built in rigging points, the room can accommodate unique performances and entertainment (ribbon acrobatics anyone?).

When hosting a small or mid-size wedding, a portion of the room can be used for the ceremony while the reception is set in the remaining sections. When hosting a larger wedding, they can accommodate a room flip (ceremony is set in the full space, guests have cocktails in the foyer while the room is set for dinner). The carpet has recently been updated to be a neutral blue-grey colour.

Wellington Room

For smaller weddings of less than 200 guests, the Wellington Room offers an intimate space for a reception. Located on the 4th floor, this venue can host a lovely elegant dinner for your closest friends and family. The 4th floor has a similar wrap-around foyer, offering natural light and great views. A smaller Gallery Room, located at the end of the foyer, can be the setting for a small wedding ceremony.
