Location: Not an easy walk for someone working or visiting the downtown of Toronto, but it is nestled against the lake. It is just off of the Queen's Quay area where there are plenty of restaurants and the theatres. If you want to see the CN tower and other downtown sites though you will have to put on some good walking shoes for the 20 minute walk or grab a taxi.
The staff at this hotel are very friendly and accomodating. Check in was quick and easy and the check out process is even easier (by phone for fast check out, or just a quick stop at the desk).
The gym is a fantastic one for a hotel. It had plenty of equipment both for cardio and for weights. It had tv's in front of all of the cardio equipment and they provide head sets for the tv's, along with towels and water.
The rooms are very comfortable, but a little outdated. My biggest complaint was the loud squealing noise outside of my room. I couldn't really hear it in my room - it sounded more like a quiet wind whistle. But, when I went outside it sounded like someone was drilling and never stopping. I am not sure if that had anything to do with the plumbing emergency they had that caused them to shut the water down for 4 hours during my stay or not.
Room service was good, and reasonable for a Toronto hotel. The food was good quality and they accomodated special requests.
Overall, it's not a bad bet for a visit to Toronto, but I can't say it's the best hotel in downtown Toronto.
