There is no better time to open a five-star hotel then during the Toronto International Film Festival. With the transplant of Los Angeles into the city, the publicity is excellent and the revenue astronomical.

For those curious about the interior of the building, the bar and Bosk Restaurant are now open to the public. The second restaurant, Momofuku, will open soon.
