I was very excited to go to the Absolute Spa at the Century Plaza however, it did not meet my expectations - especially given the prices. I received two treatments - a massage and pedicure. Both of the treatments were very good and I have no complaints. However, the facility was MUCH below my expectations. The change rooms, pool, steamroom... More

I booked a bridal party pedicure for my friend at the Absolute Spa at the Century 2 months in advance. Upon arrival the entire experience was horrible. Although I had requested 5 gel pedicures, we were informed half way through that only 3 of the aesthetician's were capable of working with gel. The bride was told that her colour may... More

Celebrating a Stagette for the bride to be. PROS: Walking distance from the West End. I had an awesome deep tissue massage from Armin the RMT. Refreshing Eucalyptus steam room. Energizing heated pool, felt like I was swimming in Hawaii beach temperature water. CONS: Massage room are close to foot traffic, so it might get noisy during your massage. Lounge... More

When my wife and I arrived, the front reception area seemed nice, then a staff member gave us a tour of the amenities. We arrived early to take advantage of the pool and steam room. What a waste of time that was. The pool was very blah and dingy. There were a lot of exposed, rusty pipes that looked horrible.... More

From the greeting at reception which did not make me feel welcome, to the sub standard pedicure I reveived (my nails were not filed properly and... More

I was staying at the hotel, I loved that the spa was open until 9pm on Sunday. My tech was amazing and professional. She listened to me and gave me an amazing service. She even met up with us in the hallway and stayed to chat for a few moments.

Lovely reflexology session. Nice to have a complimentary salad after the treatment. It was my birthday so the lovely lady gave me a free tube of lotion. Helped me relax before a long flight home and a lovely treat after being walking around for days.

After hearing many raving comments about this place decided to book at 60 minute massage for two. Made the reservation two weeks prior and when they called me to confirm the reservation they advised me that they were doing minor renovations... After check-in with no so friendly and awkward staff that showed us the facilities. The "cafe" area was closed... More

I had recently been through a bit of a rough spell in my life and really felt like it was time to treat myself for a true spa massage. I booked in for a 90 minute relaxation massage, and that's exactly what it was.... a relaxation massage. It felt so amazing that i kept getting goosebumps throughout the treatment and... More
