Wedding Venue overview: Shangri-La Hotel Toronto – Museum Room
Located on the hotel’s private event floor, the Museum Room is what they call the “heart break room” because everyone loves it, but most have too big a guest count to use it for their reception. The room is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows and adorned with thirteen beautiful chandeliers that sparkle at night. As with the rest of the hotel, the room boasts an asian-inspired aesthetic. Ceremonies can be held in this room, or it can be held in the Rosedale Room next door if the reception is held here. This room can comfortably sit 70-80 guests with a dance floor.

Wedding Venue overview: Shangri-La Hotel Toronto – Queen’s Park Ballroom
If you have a larger sized guest count, Shangri-La Toronto’s Queen’s Park Ballroom may be a good fit for you. Seating up to 250 guests for dinner, it is an elegant option for couples wanting a luxury experience at this venue but with a larger group. This room features walls that open up for views of the terrace and outdoors, with a small private patio. Couples can opt to host their ceremony in the Museum Room, if the guest count is small enough and if the timing works out.

We love the elegant and classic feel of this hotel that is complimented by a high level of service. We recently had a chance to stay at the hotel and wrote about it as a luxury staycation experience, in case that may interest you as well.
