“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. Located at the harbour it is convent for many of Toronto's tourist spots as well as the Amsterdam Brewery (which we recommend) and other nearby shops. The hotel is very modern throughout. The rooms are a good size, clean and fitted with all the necessary features (including a fridge). Although we did not make use of it, the pool is heated and is well kept with great views over Lake Ontario. We did however make use of their standard late check out and baggage store which the staff were very helpful in providing. Immediately outside the hotel there is extensive road works, these will eventually see trams running outside the hotel, making many parts of Toronto even more accessible. This construction did not impact on our stay (much) with work occurring during the core day when we were out of the hotel, it just meant accessing the hotel by car was done from a different street as part of the one way system. Overall the hotel is nicely presented and allows for great alternative to downtown Toronto hotels.

Room Tip: Book early and use different sights as we good a good deal this way!

Thank you, Bfmcm, for writing such a wonderful review of our hotel.

Our location is incredibly convenient for exploring some of Toronto's best attractions and dining spots (the brewhouse you mentioned is a personal favorite). I'm thrilled that you found your room so well equipped and your check-out so smooth. We always do what we can to make our guests stay comfortable, even if all you require is us holding onto your bags while you take in a few last minute sights before leaving the city.

The roadwork is trying, but I'm so please it didn't hinder your stay. And you are absolutely right, once the streetcars are back up and running at the end of August it will make our location that much more convenient.

Thank you again, Bfmcm, and I hope to welcome you back when your travels bring you to Toronto again.

Stayed during March Break. Renovations made it difficult to locate hotel and cost of parking was extra which was disappointing. However, it was in a good location for walking around and sight seeing. Room was comfortable and nice and staff were very helpful. Would stay here again.

Thank you, Panicfingers, for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm delighted that, for the most part, you enjoyed your stay with us.

Yes, the roadwork outside is trying, to say the least. We are anxiously awaiting its completion within the next twelve months. Please be sure to check the main page of our website, radissonadmiral.com, for the best directions on how to navigate the construction, we update this site regularly as the construction projects progress. And yes, the dreaded parking fees. We do our best to keep these are reasonable as possible, and I'm quite positive that we have one of the cheapest parking rates in downtown Toronto.

Its fantastic that you found our hotel is such a good location. We have the best of both worlds: located right on the harbourfront but still close to so many of Toronto's best attractions. And thank you for the compliment on our staff. We never get tired of hearing how friendly and helpful they are.

Again Panicfingers, thank you for the wonderful review. We hope to welcome you back when you next return to Toronto.

Enjoyed the stay. Staff were very helpful! The bar staff and dining room staff were very good. The room had a bar fridge but it has not been cleaned out prior to our arrival and the cokes were half full that were in it. I did like the hard wood floors and the beds were of good quality. Great location and recommend taking the sightseeing tour that can be picked up not far from the hotel. Breakfast buffet in the AM was well worth the 16 dollar price. The parking at 21 dollars is not bad for the location. There is a brew house that you can see from the back of the hotel and it was amazing. I would stay at this hotel again! Good job!!

Thank you, Christine C, for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us.

Firstly, I would like to apologize for the items you found in the fridge in your room. That should not have happened. I appreciate you letting us know, and your feedback will be shared with our team to ensure it does not happen again.

I am delighted that you enjoyed everything else our hotel has to offer: our staff, our restaurant, our newly renovated rooms, and our location! I'm especially glad you found our prices so reasonable. Breakfast and parking are two things people always hope are included in a hotel stay, but our chef puts on a phenomenal full breakfast buffet that really is a cut above traditional continental breakfasts. Well worth the $16, as you said. And $21 for parking is probably one of the cheapest rates you'll find downtown Toronto (trust me, I've looked).

Again Christine C, thank you for the review. We can't wait to welcome you back on your next trip to Toronto.

Stayed here for 4 nights recently. The rooms are absolutely beautiful- large, airy, bright and clean, with a shower to die for. We were lucky enough to have a room on the 7th floor overlooking the harbour. The pool is good with views of the lake and CN Tower. The breakfasts were delicious and very good value for $16. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We walked easily from the hotel to places we wanted to visit and also used the hop on off bus which stopped v near the hotel. Yes Toronto is full of road works at the moment ready for the American Games, but this is not the hotel's fault and I'm sure it will be worth it when finished. If you want a reasonably priced hotel near the waterfront don't hesitate in choosing the Radisson!

Dear lesley999Walsall, thank you for the outstanding review of our hotel. I am delighted that you had such a wonderful time with us.

We all take great pride in our hotel. Our location gives us some fantastic views of Toronto's harbourfront, and who doesn't love enjoying that from a newly renovated guest room. Our restaurant really is a superb spot not only for our delicious breakfast buffet, but also for lunch and dinner. I hope you had an opportunity to check out our Splash outdoor pool and patio.

Above all it really is our staff whom we are the most proud of. They fully embrase Radisson's "Yes I Can" service culture to satisfy and wow our guests again and again.

The construction around our hotel is an eyesore right now, but we are seeing progress. We can't wait until it is finish next year, it will only add to our already fantastic hotel

Thank you again leslie999Walsall for the wonderful review, and we hope to see you again when you return to Toronto.

We really enjoyed our stay, staff were nice and the location was the best thing about it. The sightseeing bus stops at the hotel and there is a lot of attractions right beside the hotel. The amsterdam for example is great for food and drink. Overall we loved it

Thank you, Tomas G, for the fantastic review of our hotel.

Our location really is ideal for touring around Toronto. The sightseeing bus is such a wonderful way to get acquainted with our city, and having a stop right outside our hotel - not to mention their office attached to our building - is so convenient for our guests.

We were extremely excited when the Amsterdam BrewHouse opened up at the beginning of last summer just steps from our front door. Amsterdam is one of the best craft breweries in Toronto, and there is nothing better than enjoying one of their fabulous products on their massive patio. Their food is pretty good too.

Again Tomas G, thank you for sharing your stay with the TripAdvisor community, and we hope to welcome you back to the Radisson Admiral Hotel on your next trip to Toronto.

This hotel is located right next to the harbor front so it's quite central. It's best to fly into the Toronto city airport as opposed to Pearson. The cab ride from Pearson was about 50$ to it's super expensive. Everything within the city can be reached easily by walking from this hotel.

Thank you, KNobi83, for you review of the Radisson Admiral.

You are right; our location is extremely convenient to pretty much the entire downtown area, including the Toronto Island Airport. We are looking forward to the completion of the Pearson/Union rail link that is expected to be completed sometime next year and will provide much needed direct access from Pearson Airport to downtown Toronto.

I am also excited to inform you that we have now finished our hotel renovation and all of our guest rooms are now beautifully refurbished. I hope you will visit us again on your next trip to Toronto to experience our finished product.

Again KNobi83, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and share it with the trip advisor community.

I really enjoyed my recent stay here. The hotel is newly renovated and they did a wonderful job. My room was lovely with a great view of the pool, lake, and the beginning of the runway at the island airport.

Compared to nearby properties, this is very good value. Staying downtown is already expensive and I hate all the extra fees and inflated food prices at some places. The parking was a little more reasonable here. Wireless internet is free to Club Carlson members. My dinner wasn't overpriced. As much as I liked the Westin when I stayed a few months ago, I will be choosing the Radisson from now on.

Thank you to Danielle and Rina for taking the time to give my directions to get through all the construction. I really appreciated it! Every staff member I encountered was courteous and efficient.
