Picked this hotel for a family vacation after staying here back in January for business. I guess I forgot a few things about the Hotel. The location is good (next to the Eaton Centre, close to Yonge St) but the amenities are poor and the service is average at best. Positives: the hotel has a pool and a restaurant on-site. The fitness center is nice and on the top floor with the pool. Overall the room is above average and the hotel has easy access to the Eaton Centre on floor two. Negatives: the pool is very small, you have no view due to being on Dundais St and beside the mall, employees in the restaurant are not friendly and act as though you are bothering them if you come in for lunch or ask if they have the same items that are on the room service menu (we asked one man and he said he had no clue and didn't even have a copy of the room service menu), housekeeping had to be called twice because they did not leave enough towels, at check-in they basically tell you nothing unless you ask questions (an example would be the Wi-Fi which is only free in the lobby or you have to pay $10 per day). The worst part of the hotel is the concierge, especially the younger male. He is not friendly and tries to answer your question with as little detail as possible. I think it is a game to him or it seems to be. All these make this hotel one I would cross off my list for the Toronto area.
Keep in mind that this hotel is a pretty good distance from the airport. A taxi or town car will cost you $60 one way. It is also at least a 20 minute walk to the Rogers Centre, 20 minutes to the Art Museum, 25 minutes to the Science Museum, 30 minutes to the University of Toronto and over that to several other "Landmarks". The only stuff that is really close by is the Air Canada Centre and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Plan to take public transportation or rent a car.
