My husband is horrible at keeping secrets. He’s also not the event-planning type. In fact, he’d much rather just provide his feedback and a throw out a few solid ideas but sit and watch everything come into play.
It’s also not common for me to not be in total control for once. To have someone completely plan something without me having any say (or knowledge of it to be more precise) — I don’t like surprises.
Well, the tables did turn for me this past August 30th.
It was a monumental occasion, my Champagne 30th!
And my dear, sweet, wonderful husband outlined and coordinated my entire birthday… on his very own… without me knowing anything… every last detail.
I knew we were heading out to dinner that night in Downtown Toronto with my children (there’s no way I would celebrate my 30th Birthday without my greatest gifts!) but that was pretty much all I did know.
To my surprise, my husband drove right into The Trump Hotel.
Service was remarkable from the moment our vehicle landed on Trump Toronto grounds.
The valet was exceptional and we were greeted at the front lobby immediately by Mr. and Mrs. Gomez.
Now that’s first-class service. As how it should be when you enter a hotel.
I was bedazzled by the ravishing Swarovski bling that adorned the Concierge/Front Check-in Wall.
Little did I know I would be awestruck by what was to come.
What I saw upon entering our gorgeous 1 Bedroom Deluxe Suite took my breath away!
My husband had a dozen beautiful Long-Stem Roses, my favourite treat – Macarons, chilling Moet Champagne and a stunning Paris Cake he designed on his own from my favourite bakery, Swirls Cupcakes, waiting for me upon arrival.
I was so pleasantly surprised and at the brink of tears!
This was honestly the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me for any of my birthdays to date and I couldn’t believe how much he put into making my 30th Birthday extra special.
One thing he also knows about me is that I loved the design features of The Trump Toronto Hotel.
Designed by Ivanka Trump with Chic and Contemporary Elegance in mind — every corner of our Suite was alluring.
From the paint colours to the furniture to the decor pieces — so lavish! Yet, at the same time, it was charmingly warm and cozy.
I love that Trump Toronto is social! Check out this cute (and yummy) welcome spread!
The Bedroom was separate from the spacious Living Room which featured beautiful furniture pieces including a Sofa Bed, a European Style Wet Bar, a Fireplace with LCD Flat-Screen HDTV, a Desk with wired and wireless Internet Access and near the entrance was also a Powder Room.A very notable feature is their Trump Attaché. More than a concierge or butler, Trump Attaché delivers personalized attention without intrusion, offering a comprehensive brand of VIP treatment on request, and even sometimes before it.
The bedroom was also exquisite with a large King Bed with Italian Bellino Linen, Bedside touch panel control for lighting and window fashions (because being wonderfully slothful at the Trump is encouraged), and an amazing bathroom!
The luxurious stone bathroom featured a deep soaking tub, a separate shower with rainfall shower head (I LOVED this!), Stone-topped dual sink vanities and magnifying mirror, In-mirror bathroom TV (this was also pretty awesome!) and heated floor option!
But what I really was happily amazed to learn was how particularly kid-friendly The Trump Hotel was!
You would think luxury and kid-friendly would not go hand in hand but this wasn’t the case here.
There were gift packages wrapped and ready for the kids filled with yummy treats and an adorable plush toy as part of their Trump Kids program and also a backpack for each with colouring book and crayons.
The bedroom was already ready with a crib for our son and in it included another little plush toy for him to sleep with and baby bath and body products. Oh, and they didn’t forget the importance of keeping the diaper stinkies at bay – they even had a diaper pail available! That, my friends, is how you know they were very much prepared.
We had a scrumptious In-Room Dinner from Stock Toronto and decided to try out their Summer Menu.
It was delightful!
After some R&R in my comfy Trump Robe and Slippers, a dip in their Infinity Salt Water Lap Pool located on the 32nd floor was a must.
It offers guests a heated, natural salt infinity-edge lap pool and whirlpool overlooking the Toronto skyscape.
Before the night ended, I made a wish and blew my out my candle. And of course had some of that delicious cake and a glass of champagne! Did I mention Trump provided us with sparklers for that added touch for the cake? Once again, above and beyond.
The day was perfection and I wouldn’t change a thing!
Turndown service included bottles of Evian Water and little boxes of decadent pretty chocolate in boxes.
The next morning, we started the day off with In-Room Breakfast and of course a cup of warm Nespresso Coffee (Nespresso Coffee Machine is offered in the suite).
My birthday weekend was beyond magical and impeccable.
I am so grateful for my loving husband to have conjured up such a remarkable and unforgettable milestone birthday celebration.
And of course, my birthday weekend would not have been complete without the splendid accommodations at The Trump Hotel. Everyone went above and beyond to accommodate my husbands requests during the planning stages and during my family`s stay.
I honestly would not have selected a better hotel to have celebrated such an event.
Thank you to all that helped make my Champagne 30th Birthday extraordinary!
