hotel was dated and restaurant/bar closed very early

The hotel was very dated. The area didnt have many restaurants and on a Saturday night at 10 pm we couldnt get dinner. Hotel and valet were very expensive for what you got. Additional charge was added for use internet/downstairs computers.

Wonderful Toronto Vacation

This hotel went above and beyond our expectations. My husband and I did a quick stay in Toronto before flying to a different location for a wedding. The hotel is centrally located, the staff is supreme, and we wished we could have stayed for several more days after our excellent 48 hour experience! Already planning our next trip!

check in

I had to wait 40 min to check in the line just kept growing . This was at check in time, the time they tell you to show up so you would think they would be ready for the people that made reservations then they put a very nice girl at the front of the line to try and calm people down just before they check in saying things like this never happens and she was not sure why all these people come at the same time ( check in time ) I spoke with a friend at work and it happened to him 2 weeks ago aswell.

Romantic weekend

We are an interracial gay couple, who were welcomed by very friendly, helpful and attentive staff. We had a lovely romantic weekend. Spent most of our time on the island, and enjoyed the sights and sounds, restaurants and bars, in the harbour front area. We were always happy to get back to the hotel after a long day of fun and sun. Very relaxing! Location, location, location!

Amazing stay!

Right from the moment we pulled in, the staff was attentive and helpful. They couldn't do enough for us. The desk attendant was able to accommodate our request for a lake view which was a pleasant surprise. The room was clean and quiet and very comfortable. My only complaint if I were to look for one would have been having to pay for in room wifi. There was complimentary wifi in the lobby though. Look forward to our next stay.

A pleasant stay

We had a comfortable stay in a clean room. We had a fifteen minute wait to check in as the hotel was really busy, but the staff was polite and cheerful. We missed having wifi in our room and thought that valet parking was too expensive. Overall though, we were pleased and will most likely return.
