​TIFF 2014 Hot Spots: Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto


With the Toronto International Film Festival on the horizon, the city can expect its share of A-list celebrities and splashy soirées.

From restaurants to clubs and, of course, the city's top hotels, Hollywood's finest will be weaving in and out of closed-door parties and events to promote their latest films - and one such venue is Toronto's Trump International Hotel, opened in 2012.

During Trump's first TIFF, Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller stayed in a Trump suite and reportedly conducted his press interviews from under the covers (how's that for a ringing endorsement?). That same year, Emma Watson, Johnny Depp, Dustin Hoffman and Spike Lee toured the hotel's halls - and bars.

In 2013, the swankiest Trump Hotel 'do was a meet-and-greet with Freida Pinto hosted by L’Oreal, but the Donald Trump-erected space is set to get even glitzier in 2014.

Toronto nightlife kingpin Charles Khabouth is launchinga brand new supper club, America, to replace Trump's Stock at the end of August. According to a report from the Toronto Star, the renovations include a $100,000 bill for fabric alone. To welcome what's sure to be one of the city's hottest new spaces, America will play host to a number of A-list parties. What's more, even Trump's downstairs bar Suits is getting an update and will re-emerge as The Calvin, so there's certainly a lot of new environments for A-listers to explore.

There's expected to be upwards of six additional pre- and post-premiere fetes with a large roster of names in attendance, but those are a secret – for now.
