My partner and I stayed there for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. The hotel is all suites and we stayed in a deluxe suite (room 403). The suite is very spacious with the bedroom separated from the living area by sliding glass doors. Both the living area and the bedroom have a flat screen TV. The bathroom has a jacuzzi like tub and a shower. Wifi internet service was free and very fast. The room was very quiet- we did not hear any noise from any other room or from the wedding reception that was going on Saturday night on the first (ground) floor.
The staff was superb, efficient, friendly and very helpful.
A free buffet breakfast was included in the price. It consisted of croissants, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, toast and a vegetarian dish. Juices, tea and coffee also were included. The waiter we had was named Shaker and he was nothing short of spectacular- the model of fast, courteous, service who goes out of his way to make sure you have everything you need.
The hotel had a very upscale British feel to it but without any of the pretentiousness you might expect. It is in my opinion a 5 star hotel so expect to pay 5 star prices but it is worth the price. There is a coffee maker in each suite which is complimentary. There is also a butler's pantry where they place an evening snack and also place your complimentary newspaper. They will also shine your shoes for free and have them back in the morning. Many of the guest were well dressed but we were in shorts and jeans and t shirts and never felt out of place or looked down upon.
The location is in the Bloor/Yorkville area so it is one block from the upscale boutique shops on Bloor Street. It is within walking distance of the gay village but I would recommend a taxi if you are trying to get to the downtown area.
Our stay was absolutely wonderful, we have no regrets and we can not wait to go back there again to stay!
