Booked this hotel over priceline for $64USD =priceline fees per night over the weekend of March 7th and 8th, 2008. We were in town for some shopping, r n'r and a leaf's game.
Check in was painless and quick. If you don't drive a Lexus or other 'Valet Worthy' vehicle park in the underground parking directly underneath the hotel. I honestly don't know how the person who complained about the hotel not telling them about the self-park option missed the sign to park. When you arrive at the hotel if you go straight--Valet, but if you head right off to the side-self park (RIGHT UNDER THE BIG GREEN P)---can't miss it. . . seriously. Cost us $12 and we were there 2 days.
When we arrived at the room it was evident that it had been smoked in even though we requested a non-smoking room. A quick call to the front desk and a concierge was at our door in minutes carrying our luggage to a new room. In addition they provided us with a free breakfast voucher for the troubles.
The new room (King delux) was clean, very spacious and very very clean. The bathroom was spotless and pleasant to use. Room was very quiet and peaceful. Bed was very comfortable but if you don't like feather pillows you have to ask for others to be sent up--no problem.
Breakfast was awesome. Buffet style with many non-conventional gourmet choices such as fresh fruit and cheeses, variety of healthy cereals, eggs., bacon, western sandwiches and a personalized chef to create custom omelets and waffles. One of the better breakfasts I've ever had. But good thing for the voucher or I wouldn't have payed the $16 per person.
This hotel is a stones throw from Young street and the busy downtown shopping district. However, we were weathering out the biggest snow storm of the year so we opted not to go outside. Cool enough is that this hotel is located directly on top of the underground Hudson's Bay Center. A short flight of stairs down from the lobby and your in this underground mall. Not much to see or do here but it is directly connected to the subway. On Saturday we caught the subway under the hotel over to the Eaton's Centre and spent the day in the "Underground City" exploring and shopping. Never even needed to bring a jacket or go outside at all.
Sat night, again down to the subway to the ACC and the leaf's game. Right there with no difficulty. Plus the hotel staff are amazing and always willing to help you find your way (maps provided).
All in all this was a great weekend away and this was a superior hotel as far as we are concerned. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Hopefully next time we're in T.O. Priceline will still be dealing with this hotel.
