I stayed at the Park Hyatt while on business in Toronto for 2 nights. It was my first stay at the hotel as my go-to Toronto hotel was booked. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Yorkville neighbourhood or the hotel, but overall I had a very good experience.
The room itself was available on time when I got to the hotel. I was in the north tower, which is the newer of the two. It was mentioned that the south tower was under major interior renovation so wasn’t being heavily booked.
The suite had a generous sitting area, good lighting, a very functional desk area, a generous bathroom and closet areas.
There was a good mini bar area that was well-stocked and I also appreciated having an accessible mini fridge (as I don’t often use what is stocked by the hotel, but do like to pick up a few things of my own that I can make a meal out of as I work). Many of the hotels are going to non-tamper mini bar meaning that the fridge cannot be used for any personal items… (which is annoying as I’ve only heard of a desperate, expense-accounted few who actually partake of mini-bar offerings)
There was a nice robe supplied with the bath, plenty of towels, lots of hot water when required… For those guests who are tall, the shower head was certainly positioned high enough. For those of us who are vertically challenged, adjusting the spray was impossible unless you stood on the edge of the tub! Amenities were very nice and there were lots of them: vanity kits, shower caps, mending kits and shoe shiner also which are often not included these days. However, you need not bother with the shining kit as nightly shoe shines are complimentary; a nice touch, as was the turn down service.
Wifi was strong. Didn’t even turn on the large flat-screen TV. There was a convenient docking station/alarm clock for those of us who use Apple products, so no searching for power cords. The beds were comfortable (although like other hotels, the Park Hyatt has gone to a duvet… certainly nice and facilitates laundering which is great… but I sometimes miss having a top sheet for when the duvet becomes a bit suffocating). The room that I has was certainly quiet, and I would note that I had the window open (love windows that open!)
The downside? No coffee maker in the room as I appreciate having a cup of coffee to wake me before I have to get my cup of coffee… Many places are going to a Kuerig-styled in-room beverage maker, which would have been nice.
I didn’t dine at the hotel, but have in the past enjoyed the rooftop bar… There were a number of restaurants in the immediate area as well as a nearby LCBO, cinema, and transit links.
I would certainly consider staying at the Park Hyatt again.
