Fairmont Royal York Tree Lighting Ceremony 2019

90th Tree Lighting Ceremony at Fairmont Royal York in Toronto

I attended the Fairmont Royal York Tree Lighting Ceremony 2019 and it did not disappoint. As soon as I walked into the front door, I knew I was in for a treat. I was greeted by a few elves who guided me towards the Santa experience. I grabbed a hot chocolate and a cookie and went over to see my good friend Santa. We posed for a photo and had a very quick but fun conversation.

I walked back through a beautiful setup of the largest gingerbread house that I have ever seen. Kudos to Executive Chef, jW Foster and his staff at Fairmont Royal York for their hard work and dedication to build a two-story gingerbread house for the holidays. It is sensational.

Meeting Edwin Frizzell

A few moments later, I met Hotelier of the Year: Edwin Frizzell. What a wonderful gentleman. I shook his hand & applauded the fantastic work at the hotel. He made me aware that everyone on the team made this magical moment come true for the 90th anniversary.

Thirsty Elf

After watching the tree lighting ceremony and watching the window ceremony outside, I made my way upstairs to a bar called the “Thirsty Elf”. I kind of came across it by accident while roaming around earlier in the day.

Question: Did you ever wonder what the inside of a present looks like? Well…you will have to check out this bar to understand what I am talking about. It was sensational. I ordered the “be bad for Tito’s sake”. It was a fantastic drink. They do have other options such as fuzzy grinch, christmoose vacation, Rum Rum Rudolph and many more.

The atmosphere with the holiday music + the lovely drinks made by enthusiast bartenders is really what got my attention. I had an awesome time learning how they were making the drinks while sitting at the bar.

Express Review

Overall, I just wanted to thank all the staff including the marketing team and management for being in such great spirits while I was at the event.

I hope to see you all again real soon.
