Don't worry, Four Seasons Toronto isn't being completely obliterated; it's just moving two blocks over to a new 55-story building on Yorkville Ave. The new location is scheduled to open this summer, but in the meantime, Four Seasons is hellbent on capturing a bit of the nostalgia now felt by guests who have stayed at the old property over the years.

In order to do this, the hotel has set up (what else?) an e-guestbook on Facebook. First, users must "like" Four Seasons Toronto's Facebook page, then, they're granted access to the Four Seasons Toronto Memory Book, a compendium of warm, fuzzy memories ranging from engagements to Bar Mitzvahs to the Toronto International Film Festival. Though our favorite had to be the person who fondly recalled "waiting for the elevator."

In addition to a sweet engagement anecdote:

"My husband proposed to me in Avenue Bar in August, 2010. It was a night I will never forget and it was the perfect setting! In all the excitement, we forgot to take a photo that night, so the next morning the Four Seasons generously let us go back in and take a picture in the spot where we got engaged. A funny tidbit: my husband could not get down on one knee because of the way we were sitting on the lounge chairs. But nonetheless, it was a magical proposal. That night, I was talking about rings we had seen earlier that day and Danny, sitting next to me, made me turned to face him and asked me "How about this one?" with a ring in his hand (the ring I had seen 2 years ago). It was the best line ever!"

We also liked this one from someone who clearly logged some hours working at events at the hotel:

"[I] remember the loading dock and waiting for the elevator; shlepping chairs up the stairs and lots of good memories of wonderful events that took place at Four Seasons. I always wanted to have my own event at Four Seasons. Was one of my first events in Canada 14 years ago. Lots luck with the new hotel. We will send pics soon."

Guess everyone has their own way of cherishing their stay at the Four Seasons!
