I stayed there for a week. It is in a great location with plenty of restaurants in the area and right near the subway. The room is styled as a bachelor apartment, with a kichenette, washer / dryer, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. It didnt feel
like a hotel room, more like living in my own place for a week. I would definitely stay there again.
Get location...I am from Toronto, and had not heard of the Cosmopolitan, but you could not ask for a better location in the city. Deep in the middle of everything, but far enought away that you wouldn't know it's there...:-)
I wanted to make sure my review title didn't make for a bad impression on this fantastic hotel. I did have to go to a drug store to get toilet paper though, because the supplied type was just not good. Luckily the drug store was right around the
corner. The Cosmopolitan is so well located, everything in the city was within a 3 minute walk - if that - to the subway (TTC) station. If you felt so inclined to walk, it was 5 minutes to Queen's street, where the street cars would take you across town (east/west). The staff was respectful. The hotel does only have two elevators, so I spent some time waiting for them. I did book a room with a lake view, and I was a little shocked at how little of the lake I could see. I think that had more to do with expectation than false advertising. The plus side, I think I had the BEST view of the CN Tower Toronto has to offer. It was situated just left of a larger high rise, and it was perfectly framed for my view from my balcony. I would stand there and watch the light show, watch tourists take photos from within CN Tower observation area, and watch is snag a stray cloud from the sky. It was a bit magical. The only reason I would not stay at the Cosmopolitan would be to experience staying in another part of the city, period! It was recommended to me, and I in turn would also recommend it to other travelers.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
There is a restaurant that used to be called Marche - can't think of the new name - which is one block away. The restaurant is set up in stations - stirfry, seafood, crepe, bakery, juice bar, grilling station, and the list goes on - so you can go for breakfast, lunch and dinner all in the same day and never eat the same thing twice. Since I was travelling alone, and was very unfamiliar with the city, it was easy to just pop in, get something to go and take it to my room before it had a chance to get cold. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This hotel was great. Very clean, very comfortable and windows surrounding the bed. I only knocked off a bit for location because it was about a mile away from the conference center and is a bit of a walk. But that really only matters if you're
staying for an event at the convention center and are travelling by foot.
