I was really scared about staying here because of these nasty reviews but I have no cause for complaints. Our hotel room was pristine...not a speck of dust great lighting, and everything was in working order. The room had a very new "dry-wall" type of smell to it so maybe it was one of the rooms that went under renovation.
The room was no smoking and had a king bed. Room was almost as spacious as those at the Toronto Marriott Eaton Center. The bathroom was beautiful... marble countertop, Khoeler faucets, Neutrogena bath products. Room came equipped with the usual: desk, high speed internet, iron and board, coffee maker, blow dryer. Bed was soft, comfortable, and clean.
Housekeeping was not obtrusive like I've seen in many other hotels. Check out time is 1:00... I've never seen such a late time at any other place.
Front desk was very helpful. We came to check in at around 3:30 and they did not have any rooms available for us because a lot of people had checked out late. They told us to come back and check in in about 1-2 hours. That would have probably ticked some people off but the woman helping us was just so nice that we didn't care. It just gave us more of an excuse to get out and enjoy Yorkville!
Probably the best thing about this hotel is the location. You have Yonge Street and Eaton Mall a few blocks away, the cool Bloor West stores down the street, and the subway station right in the basement. SO CONVENIANT!
The subway stop, Bloor-Yonge, is also an interchange. Hudson's Bay Company is in the basement if you feel lazy and want to do some shopping. There is also an LCBO in the basement of the hotel!
Some "good eats" around the area: Greg's Ice Cream (corner of Bloor W and Spadina) and Pusateri's (on Yorkville).
Valet parking at the hotel is $27 C but we did public parking for about $15C a night. That's really cheap...probably cheaper than you will find anywhere. Don't quote me on that rate...it's just what we got.
One bad thing was the elevators... they were kind of scary.
