Super location, friendly service

We would certainly recommend this hotel on our experience. It was well located on the harbour with easy access to the city's playpark of Centre Island which was only a short ferry trip away. It was near the famous CN Tower, Roger's Centre, and the Eaton Shopping Area. Union station was only a few blocks away. The area felt very safe. The rooms had lovely views of the harbour and Centre Islands.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

In general we were used to Irish service at home where the customer is always first and the tip is an appreciation. The impression we were given in Toronto itself was of tip hungry waiters. Are they even paying these guys and gals? Relax, nobody's going to run away without giving a tip.

Beautiful View

We were in town just for a couple of days for a funeral. We were tired and hungry when we arrived, check-in went very smoothly, and we were able to order room-service which was delicious. The room was small, but had a beautiful view and was decorated very tastefully. It wasn't as clean as I would have liked, specifically, there were other people's hair in the tub that really grossed me out, and the bathroom could have been much cleaner.

Perfect Location

The lakeshore location is ideal. Also there is an Airport bus that stops at the hotel (€19). Very convenient for Rodgers Stadium & Metro Conferencr Centre events.
