I really quite enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff are very friendly, the room was well equipped and it is in a fantastic location. It is close to the subway, across from the ROM and in the heart of the ever fashionable Yorkville. I loved the fact that the room had a place to dock my iPod. It was clean, spacious and had a very comfortable bed. Would stay here again in a heartbeat! The one disappointment was that I had to pay for wifi access. I just don't understand hotels who still charge for this, even if you are a member of their rewards program.

We stayed here two years ago, on our most recent stay I noticed some things in our room which looks like the hotel needs a bit of upgrading.

The electrical outlets on the desk didn't work. They were connected by an extension cord into a outlet which itself had an adapter to provide additional plug in spots. There was only one other outlet I could find in the room. I had to recharge my phone and camera by reaching behind the desk to the outlet with the adapter. Inconvenient.

The hotel charges $4.00 per 30 minutes for internet access. The last time I paid for internet access was at a budget hotel, not a hotel that advertises itself as a luxury hotel.

The heating was extremely noisy when it was working.

It may just have been my room but my stay in 2012 was not at the level of my stay in 2010.

We stayed there only one-night during our Canadian trip. Right from check-in through check-out the service and comfort were excellent. I even had a demonstration of how to use the new coffee machine in the room at 2.00am! Breakfast was great with the usual large choice and the robes actually fitted (46L). Location opposite ROM and other museums and near great restaurants including Morton's, were a great bonus.

Room Tip: Try and get an executive upgrade

Everything you might want is right outside the door. Great restaurants both casual and finer dining,shopping & tourist attractions. The rooms are a good size, the service is great. Check out the outside deck on the top floor. Nice outside space. Yorkville is a great area of the city including many high end shops as well as the old standbys.

Love this hotel and the location is perfect if you want to shop Yorkville and boutiques but during the fall and winter months, the heat is centrally controlled so...it's hot in the rooms. Can't adjust temperature so it made sleeping tough. Otherwise, hotel and amenities are good.

We booked this hotel on hotwire.com and got an excellent rate...it's in a beautiful location, very nicely decorated rooms, and the Proof Bar is wonderful! Staff are very professional, but approachable at the same time...loved every minute of our stay!
