“STAY HERE!! Loved it :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here two nights to extend our bts shopping and wonderland trip into a little R&R for us big kids..
Pool was overly used by my children. They loved it.
I loved the patio.
Rooms - cant say enough wonderful things about this place. The one bedroom suite was more than spacious enough for the five of us.
Great breakfast - didn't see a comp BBQ but we had more than enough groceries stocked in our room. No frills is just up on 7.
Take out Swiss Chalet was convenient ;)
So we will be back :)
Special thanks to staff for having our room ready at our request for early check in and the welcome note made the girls feel special :)

We spent one night in this beautiful hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. The full kitchen in each room will be perfect for my hubby who is often on the road with work, and I definitely recommended it to him and his work buddies. The only thing missing is some literature about the room, hotel, and area. Was very disappointed the following morning when we discovered the bbqs, and were told about the complementary dinner held each night. We had eaten the night before at the closest restaurant, which was empty, yet took over an hour to prepare our meal. Would have much rather had that time in the room. Hopefully we'll get the chance to return soon and will take in all the hotel has to offer.

EARTH: Great patio. Lots of green, beautiful grass. Three fancy, big barbecues to cook on. Lots of room to sit and chat. I was also told by the front desk that a lot of the material used to construct the hotel was recycled, the hotel was made to be eco-friendly from top to bottom.

FIRE: They have these beautiful outdoor fire-places that keep guests warm when outside at night and also keep bugs away. My grandfather took many pictures of these because he'd never seen anything like them before, he was truly amazed.

WIND: The atmosphere in the hotel was great. Everybody was really nice and every time I was in the elevator, lobby or elsewhere, hellos were always exchanged. The air conditioner was a nice touch to the room. It may have been a bit chilly first arriving but guests can control the temperature right by the bed and it was fast-changing. We had a wonderful sleep at night.

WATER: There is a great kitchen in every room. A filter is installed in every water dispenser. The washroom was wonderful. I liked the idea of the half-flush and full-flush options. Showering was great and the water was always warm. There was all natural shampoo, conditioner and body wash. We really loved this.

PS: The pillows, comforters and beds are just the comfiest I've ever experienced at any hotel. Your head simply sinks into the pillow like a dream.

PSS: The lights in the hotel room can be a bit confusing, but when you understand how to control them, the lights are just the right amount.

Signed, a very happy customer.

Ronny,

thank you for taking the time to post such a wonderful review on our new hotel, the Element Vaughan Southwest, the first Element in Canada. We are proud to be a LEED certified hotel and offering guests an eco-friendly environment.
We are pleased that you were able to enjoy the outdoor area and stayed warm with our gas heaters. Hard to believe that we have had to use them in August!
Loved the reference too to the 4 Elements.
thank you once again for staying with us and sending us such kind words and a positive review.

My family and I stayed at this hotel on Saturday August 17th. Brand new hotel. I was told it is the first of its kind in Canada! The rooms have everything a family needs! We stayed in a one bedroom suite and had a full kitchen with great stainless-steel appliances and cooking utensils, which came in handy when it came to dinner time. We loved the washroom with its walk-in glass shower, build-in shampoo and body wash dispenser and overall bright and roomy atmosphere. The most thing that made my family very impressed was the outdoor patio which had built-in BBQs! Our teenage kids enjoyed the pool and were able to go straight from there to the beautiful patio! We had so much fun and will definitely return to this hotel when in the area!

Greetings Lena!
thank you for taking the time to post a review on our new hotel, the Element Vaughan Southwest, inspired by Westin. Our Element is the first in Canada. We are appreciative of the wonderful feedback on our amenities and are pleased that you were able to enjoy our salt water pool and take advantage of some relaxing time outside on our patio. It has been very well received by our guests, especially our 3 GAS BBQ's that are ready for guests to use. We want to be able to provide all of our guests the comforts of their homes at our Extended Stay hotel.

Had a great stay at the Element Vaughan. Love that this hotel is brand new and so very clean! Room's were amazing, beautiful modern furniture and very comfortable bed. Rain fall shower head was a treat. Bathrooms were spotless. Stayed with my friend and our two young babies. Lot's of room, we fit two strollers and two playpens in the room! The full kitchen in our room was wonderful, so nice to be able to easily warm food and bottles for the babies.

Great amenities - pool was a great temperature and the free outdoor BBQ and full breakfast was amazing. We didn't know the BBQ was free until we asked, that was the one thing the staff did not mention at check in. Filtered water in the rooms is such a great touch, unlike other hotels that charge way to much for a bottle of water.

Staff were all very friendly and took the time to explain about the hotel.

Would definitely stay again

Great hotel with amazing staff! From the time you walk in the door there is someone smiling and welcoming you. Each room has its own kitchen, which is a plus for a family like mine that has multiple food allergies. Its great to know that you can bring your own meals and prepare them in your room. There is a wonderful patio with bar-b-ques that the guests may use, nice bonus. I believe the pool is salt water, we didn't go in it, we did go in the hot tub and that was nice. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are really great too! There is an evening reception which we did not attend, but we heard it was good. The morning breakfast was nice, the only request I might make is to have some boiled eggs available. All of the eggs were already on buns or wraps and our family has Celiac therefore no eggs for us. Thanks to everyone at the Element for a wonderful stay!!! We will be back soon!

Room Tip: Our room was really quiet!!!! We didn't hear anyone walking above us and we didn't hear any...

I never write reviews but wow..what a great hotel! This is what you need when you are traveling!!! The beds are very comfortable and the rooms include a full kitchen (fridge, dishwasher, stove, microwave), which saves you a lot of money. This is very convenient if you are traveling with kids...My kids enjoyed the big TV and the indoor pool. The free internet access allowed me to work from anywhere in the hotel. One of the most important things is that everything was very, very clean!!! The staff was always very respectful. I recommend this hotel 100% to everybody.
