My first time in Toronto and what a magical city! I love how friend everyone is, so clean, so green, and walkable anywhere! The best part is that the Delta Chelsea was right in the middle of it all between Bloor in the North, Front St. in the South, University Ave in the West and Yonge St. in the East.
The Delta Chelsea is a huge hotel with a large lobby with a friend staff and readable signs to find out the street you can exit or enter from. The Airport Express stops right infront of the hotel, which takes travelers from YYZ Pearson to hotels in downtown Toronto. The best airport transportation service that provides free WiFi and electrical outlet! It also gives you a preview of the city when dropping other passengers off at other hotels in Toronto.
Rooms at the Delta Chelsea is so comfortable, especially the beds. The views in either direction are wonderful. We had our room onthe 20th floor facing Yonge St. so you can see the people walking up and down Younge, Eaton Center, the Bay at Atrium, and Ryerson University. The bathroom was big, clean, and provides complimentary toiletries. There is Internet access in the room, but recommend to go to the lobby and use their free WiFi. There are many sitting areas in the lobby and everyone is down there to use the WiFi. There are 4 eateries in the lobby, but more choices just outside on Yonge St. and at Eaton Center.
We ate the Market Place in the lobby and the food is edible, but could have found a cheaper place to eat outside of the hotel. The breakfast buffet at Bistro 33 was acceptable, but the price was high. Go to a Tim Horton's for cheaper breakfast or enjoy one at the Eaton Center at Eggceptional. At night I would reccommend to try WOO at Dundas Square for a high end Asian Fusion buffet. We did order room service and the food was acceptable, but had better room service at other hotels.
The Delta Chelsea is located near the two major subway lines in Toronto. College St. Station is located nearest to the hotel and the other one is Dundas Square on the Yonge Line. Queen's Park station is the closes one on the University Line. However, walking is a good option for visitors since the city takes pride on being "green" with many residence riding bikes and using public transportation. Taxis can be used, but scarecely used them. We were able to walk to the ROM, Bloor, Yorkville, The Annex, Chinatown, Kensington, and Eaton Center.
I highly recommend the Delta Chelsea for a great central location when visiting Toronto. The staff are nice and very kid friendly. There are two pools, one on th2e 27th floor with a lounge and on the second floor with the big waterslide. However, being so center in the city all of the attactions are walkable, except the ones near Front St. But it doesn't matter on the distance to the CN Tower or Harbourfront since subways stations are nearby. Toronto is so magical, clean, and friendly that you can truly miss once departuring back home. Bon Voyage!
