This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. I stayed here with two friends for four nights from December 28, 2013 – January 1, 2014. The rate varied, but it averaged out to $169.50 per night + tax = $196.63 per night. This was a great rate, considering Toronto is one of the most expensive cities in the world.
We were assigned a well-appointed and spacious room on the 7th floor. Actually, our room was HUGE – the largest non-suite hotel room I have ever stayed in. It had two queen beds, large desk, 32” plasma television, ipod docking station, two closets, a safe, a Keurig machine with complimentary K-cup coffee and tea, a separate room that had a toilet, sink, and magnified mirror with a light, and another separate room that had a sink and the shower/tub. The set-up was absolutely perfect for three people. The bed linens were luxurious and the pillows were plush. The shower water temperature got very hot and it had an adjustable showerhead massager. The heat/air conditioner kept the room at the perfect temperature and made the room very comfortable. Internet in the room was very fast and complimentary since I am an Omni Select member. You can have three devices on at the same time. This was very convenient since there were three of us. We also received two free beverages delivered to our room each morning. I just wish the room had a refrigerator.
Service was exceptional, authentic and friendly from everybody we encountered; from the front desk agent, the bellmen, and the two concierge staff members who were exemplary – Vanessa and Shawn. These two staff members were extremely knowledge, friendly, professional, helpful, and always gave spot-on advice that really helped us make the most of our four day trip. Thanks, Vanessa and Shawn! The housekeepers were very thorough and I really liked how they returned in the evening to ask if we wanted turn down service. We also asked for a late check-in and this was cheerfully granted by the front desk agent who answered the phone.
Hotel Information -
The hotel has 298 rooms and is sixteen stories tall. It was built in 1903. The lobby is spectacular – absolutely grand and beautiful. We did not park or eat at the hotel, so I cannot speak to the parking situation or the on-site restaurants. The hotel has a partnership with Dollar/Thrifty. So, we were able to easily rent a car for our day trip to Niagara Falls.
Area near Hotel –
The location is another highlight of this hotel. It is PERFECT! It is located on King Street East, just east of Yonge Street. It is located in the Old Town/Saint Lawrence Market neighborhood of downtown Toronto, which makes it close to EVERYTHING! It is located less than a block from the King Street Subway Station, and within walking distance to CN Tower, Eaton Centre Mall, Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, Hockey Hall of Fame, Saint James Cathedral, Saint Lawrence Market, Design Exchange, Jack Layton Ferry Terminal (the ferry to the Toronto Islands), Chinatown, Kensington Market, Little Italy, Church and Wellesley LGBT area, Nathan Phillips Square/City Hall/Old City Hall, and numerous restaurants. You will LOVE the location of this hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, just like we enjoyed visiting Toronto. Because of the size of the room, the service, the nightly rate, and the location, I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to all of my friends and family. Thank you for a very memorable and enjoyable stay, Omni!
