Despite my permanent status as a Starwood lifetime platinum member, I had to try out this newly opened upbeat hotel. From the second I walked into the lobby, I was immediately impressed with the colors, ambiance and most of all décor and architecture. The hotel is directly linked to Pearson Airport in Toronto and accessible by either car or rail. The monorail system takes you from either terminal directly to the hotel.
One of the impressive attribute of this lodging facility was the fact that all room are the same price: $149.00. There are three types of rooms available; The Focus Room that is geared to a single occupancy; the Versatile room that accommodates 2 people with two queen beds; or the Altitude room, originally names after the abbreviated Alt Hotel.
Overall I rate this hotel high in energy and high in service. This unique hotel seems simple on the outside, but quite a balance of contemporary modern decor inside, coupled with a perfect balance of color and ambiance.
Even though the hotel staff is new, they all seem to have the proper European style professional training. The uniqueness of this hotel is indeed the lobby mural and the simulated three tier fireplace. Somewhat of a transitional décor, but quit functional. You feel at times that you are in the future! Most importantly, the construction of this hotel is sound and quiet even though it right next to the airport. An east face room get you a bright sunrise. Oh and yes the WiFi is free! Like it should always be.
