The hotel was in a great location, walking distance to several places we wanted to visit. Check in was no problem, we got a room with a balcony and great view. The room was simple and unique. On our arrival, the concierge stand was pushing a Bus and Boat Tour (which we did, but I would not recommend - the double decker bus we got on had 2 broken seats on top, though the Boat portion was very nice - I would recommend taking a boat ride in the harbor).
Our room included breakfast, which was the same every day, as expected, no complaints. However, we did have a disturbing incident. After being out on the town wining and dining we rented a movie in our room and fell asleep. At approx 2:30 AM our door was opened and an employee of the hotel dropped a tube of toothpaste on the floor when my husband yelled. We didn't know what was going on. By the time we got someone on the phone at the front desk to report the incident, the person that answered the phone was the same person that had entered our room... he said that we had called down and requested toothpaste. We certainly did not call down for toothpaste as we had enough toothpaste to last us a month. Maybe it was our fault for falling asleep before securely latching the door, but it was still very unsettling that an employee of the hotel would open our door in the middle of the night. We really wanted to like everything about the hotel, but that incident was very nerve wracking!
Other than the 2:30 AM intruder, we did enjoy our stay. It was quiet on our floor. We also enjoyed a few hours at the rooftop pool.
Do go eat at Canoe on the 54th floor of the TD bank building, do eat at Lee, do take a boat ride in the harbor. Do stop by the Renaissance Toronto for a drink in the bar, its a great view of the Rogers Center. If you want to use the internet at any Hyatt hotel, you get free internet during your stay if you become Gold Passport Members of Hyatt, so sign up on-line if you plan on staying at a Hyatt. DO latch your door whenever you are in the room, and put your valuables in the safe!
