We stayed for a night at Toronto and booked this hotel using an ongoing deal at Orbitz.com. We arrived very late and were upgraded to a superior suite by the reception staff. The room had high ceiling and well appointed. The walls were very thin though and we could hear a lot of commotion from adjoining ...
This is the 2nd time that I've stayed at this particular hotel. I really like the location and what it has to offer. The biggest complaint has got to be the way that the parking is coordinated. There always seems to be lots of congestion but the valet crew try very hard to make your stay pleasing. ...
Took a surprisingly long time to check in when we arrived at 2am, but the staff were pleasant and I've rarely been happier to sink into bed. My one major complaint is that they charged us for internet. But even with that I would stay here again because of the super-convenient location.
I had problems with my bill/receipt provided to me upon checkout. I knew I was responsible for $30 for overnight parking, however, the hotel billed my VISA Charge Card $76.95. I have called the hotel to inquire about the discrepancy, just waiting for the billing department to open this Monday 08/13/2018 ...
The hotel was nice, but the room are small. The parking for this hotel is a joke. It doesn't have enough spot for guest and the parking is really, really, tight. We had a truck so we choose not to move once we got a parking spot.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a rude bellman telling us we had to pay for parking for each motorcycle. Parking was way overpriced and it was in a dusty garage with construction going on. Next day our motorcycles were covered in dust. The hotel also charges for wifi. Other than that, the hotel itself ...
Hotel was a little pricey but that's probably because it is located close to the airport. The breakfast was ok but very limited in its selection. We didn't know that you have to push a "button" outside the room for housekeeping to clean our room and change towels. There was no information in the ...
Went to Concert at Rogers Stadium ...2 min walk, which is great because traffic is crazy in Toronto! I would stay there again.
We stayed for a night at Toronto and booked this hotel using an ongoing deal at Orbitz.com. We arrived very late and were upgraded to a superior suite by the reception staff. The room had high ceiling and well appointed. The walls were very thin though and we could hear a lot of commotion from adjoining rooms. We order an artisan pizza through room service and was delighted at the good quality of the preparation. There were some fancy toiletries and Starbucks coffee in the room! Will stay again (hope to be allocated a room in the higher floors though next time).
I liked my stay. It was right beside the subway and the rooms were very clean. I would stay here again. I didn’t like that the rooms were smaller than pictured, house keeping especially during the weekend came VERY early-waking us up, and there’s no hot tub. The washrooms were very clean and the shower was nice. Overall, I had a nice stay I just wish the house keeping wasn’t so pushy and came so early.
Really enjoyed the room. Very roomy and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant. The breakfast was very good. Will definitely stay again at this hotel.
The northwest shore of Lake Ontario is home to Canada's largest city and the fourth-largest city in North America. Gear up for Toronto's immensity from the outset: this green city has a financial district of world importance and the needle-like CN Tower, but also a gentler side with hundreds of parks and 52 outdoor skating rinks open from December through February. If you prefer the great indoors, Toronto also has PATH, holding the Guinness World Record for the world's largest underground shopping complex, complete with 18 miles of pedestrian tunnels.
Start with the CN Tower, a structure that was the world's tallest until eclipsed by newer projects. If you're into extreme urban adventures, opt for the Edgewalk, a tethered but hands-free walk on the roof over the tower's revolving restaurant 1,168 feet above street level. Make sure you book ahead for this particular adventure, but don't fret if daredevil thrills are not your idea of fun. You can experience a tamer version by opting for a glass-paneled elevator ride up more than 1,100 feet to the Lookout, the Outdoor SkyTerrace or, 300 feet higher, the Skypod. The elevator floor is also glass for a stomach-tumbling experience!
Back on the ground, you'll find plenty to do. The Royal Ontario Museum, paired with the Art Gallery of Ontario, make a perfect itinerary for museum lovers. The latter institution is home to the Henry Moore Sculpture Centre and houses 900-plus works by this important 20th-century creator. The city is also overflowing with musical cultureeverything from world-class symphony, opera and ballet to reggae, Broadway and hip-hop. For a Hearst Castle-like experience, visit the Casa Loma in midtown.
If you're more of a sports enthusiast, try the Hockey Hall of Fame or see the Toronto Argonauts play in the Canadian Football League at the Rogers Centre. If you opt for a CFL game, note that the field dimensions are longer and wider than in the NFL and that there are only three downs, so expect an exciting passing game.
Toronto is also a multicultural powerhouse with over 140 different languages spoken locally, so enjoy the many authentic world food choices that you'll find in just about every neighborhood. In particular, check out its thriving Chinatown, the St. Lawrence and Kensington Markets, and The Distillery Historic District. The latter gets its boozy name from the Victorian distillery warehouses that line the streets, though nowadays you'll find a huge number of chic cafes, independent shops and galleries, and top eats from pub grub to French patisserie.
The Toronto International Film Festival, held each September, gives you the chance to see numerous publicly-screened offerings while catching a glimpse of your favorite Hollywood and international film artists. Check out the city's bursting program of free winter events if you're on a budget: from public ice-skating to the sculptures at Ice Fest, to free opera at Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre.
Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) handles all international flights and is 14 miles northwest of downtown Toronto in Mississauga, Ontario. Union Station sees a high volume of inter-city rail passengers each day and is worth a visit, if only to walk through its historic edifice built in the era of grand railway stations like those in New York and Washington, D.C. Toronto's extensive subway and streetcar system puts the whole city easily within reach, so any of the city's hotels will offer convenient access.
