My companion found the Boatel as an alternate to yet another manic conference hotel. I walked there from the ferry to the downtown airport, along the quay. The location is very convenient to downtown. The boat itself is tidier than any I have known. The hosts made us feel welcome, without pressure, immediately. Their dinner and activity recommendations were welcome and spot on. The breakfasts are wonderful and served on a splendid deck. You are a part of the waterfront. Runners, bikers, strollers, dogs (ask about Apollo), and boats pass by all day; close, yet with the privacy of railings and elevation. Three tall sailing ships are berthed directly aft (behind). The realities of berths and shared (spotless) heads may not be for everyone - but if you have any sense of adventure and interest in different experiences? This is a no-brainer. Our weather was sublime (especially for very late September), but I would book this again, knowing it was going to rain through the entire stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Enjoy your stay at the most unique Bed and Breakfast in Toronto aboard a 65 foot motor yacht moored in the heart of downtown Toronto. Guests are gently rocked to sleep and wake-up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and a gourmet breakfast surrounded by a post card view of the city and Toronto harbour. Leave the car and walk everywhere, shopping, catch a baseball game with Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre, CN Tower, and restaurants galore... all within a short walk or street car access away. Close to the theatre district with many choices of live theatre and musicals to choose from. Take time to enjoy a hop-on-hop-off tour of the city or rent bike to tour the waterfront. Book the whole boat and ask us about having dinner on our skylounge. Take in one of the charters in the harbour for a romantic evening cruise before returning to your own private yacht. Come back to the boat to enjoy the spectacular view from the aft deck and experience life on the water. Warning: marine life is addictive; your first visit won’t be your last. ... more less
