Great customer service

From the moment we arrived the staff was extremely friendly. There were renovations happenings on the floor we were on so they gave us the internet access for free. The lady also walked us to the liquor store to make sure we didn't get lost. That really surprised me. The rooms were nice, not fancy but good enough. The location is very close to the CN Tower and the Air Canada Centre. I would definitely stay here again.

Reunion in Toronto

We arrived by train at 10 am! We just had to walk across the street!The bellman claimed our luggage just in case no rooms were ready that early. Wonder of wonders, after a little finagling, a room was found available and we moved in. Our bellman was wonderful and gave us great hints to lunch and getting the day pass for the subway. Our room was comfortable and clean and very conveniently located close to everything. We even got to take in a baseball game. We went to the Esplanade twice to try out the pubs. The waitstaff in every restaurant were so friendly and sociable. It was a joy to try out so many new places to eat. We can't wait to go back!

Just a short walk from the hotel are so many pubs and restaurants to sample: Scotland Yard, The Irish Embassy and Jack Astor's to name a few. Yummy food and great beer!

Comfy but mildly dated

We got this reservation for a great price but then parking was absurd ($48)! We had to do valet due to the fact that there was construction around the building and couldn't find other parking but getting our car out of valet was quick the next morning! The lobby was beautiful and lavish. The room was dated but clean and comfortable, good value for what we paid. The black out curtains were amazing, didn't realize how late we had slept in! It was really convenient for what we needed (a wedding at the Design Exchange on Bay St) which allowed us to walk. We would stay here again.

Excellent location for the Leaf game weekend getaway

loved the hotel and location - getting to valet parking was a challenge - 1/2 an hour wait at least - but understand this was a construction issue on the road that has been going on for a year - so expected a bit of a wait -love that we were so connected underground to get to the Leaf game - staff was very friendly and informative - will definitely stay here again
