This is the second year in a row I've stayed at the Hampton Inn Corporate Centre and I continue to be very happy with the hotel.
First of all, the service - from the shuttle driver to the front desk clerks to the breakfast room service, I found everybody to be very friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff was quite patient with our tendency not to leave our room until 1-2pm each day as well.
The complimentary breakfast provided (6am-10am daily) has a lot of choices - pastries, toast, bagels, hot choices (varied day by day - different eggs, sausages, potatoes, french toast sticks, depending on the day), oatmeal (with sugar, almond slices, and raisins available to mix in), waffle maker (with berry topping and whipped cream available), fruit salad, yogurt, cereal, juices, coffee, tea... It's a complimentary hotel breakfast so it's not the best version of these things you could possibly find, but more than adequate to start off your day. There is coffee and tea available in the lobby at all times, as well. Plus, newspapers provided (National Post) and a TV with news on playing in the lobby. There's a plaza with several restaurants (Japanese, Thai, Italian, Chinese, Irish pub) just a five minute walk down the road (and the Best Western next door appears to also have a restaurant).
Free wifi worked great. The fitness room has two ellipticals, three treadmills, two stationary bikes (all with individual TVs attached, and they will provide earbuds at the front desk), free weights, Swiss balls, and mats provided. I didn't use the pool, which wasn't full sized, but there is one as well.
The room itself was clean and comfortable, with plenty of outlets. It was also quite quiet (I was on the 7th floor, about 3 doors away from the elevator). Only noise was people's doors opening and closing, and occasionally someone talking right outside the door. I'm a light sleeper, so I notice these things. Bed had both firm and soft pillows provided. Nice sized desk with outlets and ethernet connection. My main complaint was that there was no vanity mirror provided and the bathroom counter was really big and high - I'm extremely nearsighted and pregnant so I couldn't get close enough to the mirror to look myself in the eye without my contacts in. I had to use the mirror on the closet door. Otherwise, the bathroom was big and clean with plenty of towels and hooks to hang things, as well as a lot of counter space. There's a small safe in the closet, but it's not very deep and vertical (so I had to stand my laptop up) and doesn't fit a ton of things. There's a refrigerator and microwave as well, and the TV reception was good.
Complimentary airport shuttle runs once an hour - call for it when you arrive, and arrange for it before you need to leave. Seems like they also will arrange a shuttle to take you to work in the morning if you need it. Didn't use the business center, but there is one. My only complaint about the location is that it's rather convoluted to get in/out of the airport, so it actually takes 10-15 minutes to get door to door. Make sure to factor that into your timing. There's a gas station just down the street, which is convenient for filling up the rental car before returning it. There's also free parking at the hotel, and we never had trouble finding a parking spot in front (stayed 3 nights, had a car for 2 and we got back quite late both nights). I think there was more parking around back as well. Our room overlooked a golf course, so apparently there is golfing next door.
Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. It made a great base for going into downtown Toronto (only 20+ km, but watch out for traffic) and into other areas (we went to Hamilton as well).
