We stayed at this hotel for 6 days of 'touristing' just before Christmas, having chosen it for its Trip Advisor 'No. 1 hotel in Toronto' status... You're a discerning bunch out there in TA land..!
For tourists coming from Europe, it's an excellent choice. We arrived at Pearson Airport and jumped on the Airport Express coach, which stops outside the Fairmont Hotel, which is about 200 yards away from the Le Germain. The hotel is right next to the Air Canada Centre, where the Toronto ice hockey and basketball teams play, and also 50 yards from Union Station, from where you can get to everywhere... It is also only a short walk to the Lake front and the ferry over to the Toronto islands, to the CN Tower and to the Steam Whistle micro brewery, which has a splendid tour, accompanied by its product...:))
We had a standard room with a view of the CN Tower, which was very clean, comfortable and well laid out with all the amenities you would expect and a splendid walk-in shower with a 'rainfall' shower head, which led to some rather over-long showering! An additional facility is the complimentary coffee and tea station on the second floor, which is availble 24 hours a day to guests.
As we were being tourists, some local knowledge was very helpful and the concierge team at the Le Germain are brilliant. Susan sorted out our day trip to the Niagara Falls, which was great fun, and was a mine of information on all the other daft questions we asked her.
If we ever return to Toronto, there is no doubt that this is where we will stay.
