I booked this hotel via hotwire in May 2012 for the Grey Cup in November. From looking at their prices I definitely got a good deal. The hotel was worth what I paid, but I wouldn't pay full price as it wasn't that fabulous. I called in July to request 2 double or queen beds, but come check in my request wasn't granted. I didn't think it would be possible, but I thought by calling so early that there was a slight chance. The front desk attentandent told me that there were just too many over 40 year old men staying with them that it wasn't possible to give me 2 beds. I guess it's a good thing I was with my sister and having to share a king size wasn't as uncomfortable as it would have been if I was a 40 year old man. Overall the room was nice, but nothing special. It wasn't an overly large room, but we did overlook Bloor so that was nice. The bathroom had a separate tub from the shower and was a fairly large bathroom. The shower itself was quite tiny and I don't imagine it was quite enjoyable for those larger 40 year old men staying that weekend. The rooms were quiet and I didn't hear any outside noise at all. The location is great. The subway stop isn't even a block away. There's a Shoppers Drug Mart just outside the hotel. As nice as it was to have Valet parking it is a steep fee, but thankfully I got the rooms at a pretty good rate so I still feel like I came out ahead. I have no complaints, but I certainly wouldn't pay over $200 for this room even on Grey Cup weekend.
