I stayed here for a weekend for my best friend's wedding. You are treated like royalty the second you arrive. The valet workers are kind and helpful, but give them plenty of time to find your car; ours was lost twice, but they sent an apology amenity to make up for it.
When you walk in the lobby you are immersed in old world decadence and beauty. The gorgeous chandelier and all the decor are spectacular.
The rooms, well, they are clearly as old as the hotel. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was nice, but a little small. The door handle to the room was loose, but it locked so whatever. The walls are terribly thin. I mean, you can hear talking, coughing, sneezing, and more intimate bodily noises made by your neighbors. I can sleep through anything, so it didn't bother me other than it was a little uncomfortable if you saw your neighbors in passing.
The room service was prompt and not terribly overpriced. And delicious. The soup in the restaurant in the lobby was fantastic. The drinks in the Library Bar were fancy and delicious. Also a bit overpriced but typical of fancy hotels.
The pool looked nice, but I did not have a chance to enjoy it. I was able to print my boarding pass free of charge in the business office, which was nice and one less thing to worry about before the tedious task of going through customs.
My favorite part of the hotel was the shops and how it connected to an indoor mall and the metro system. Had I been there with my husband for leisure I would have really, really enjoyed that.
The CN tower is a short walk away, as is many touristy things. Great central location.
If you like fancy, ornate, old hotels, this one is perfect for you.
