I booked a superior room, being their basic room. When I got to my room, this was one of the biggest “basic rooms I have seen, and I had not been upgraded. It had modern furnishings, big flat screen TV, expresso machine, large bathroom, separate shower and a separate toilet etc. The large shower had a rainshower head, with glass between the shower and the bedroom, with blinds you could pull if you wanted privacy. The airconditioning/heating was excellent and very responsive.
I was only on the 4th floor and my room had a view of the CN tower, and while across the street was under construction, I could hear no noise.
The lobby bar was funky, and the staff at reception were very helpful. Especially Gregory and Suzanne, the concierge's who went out of their way to help with advice and plans, even before I had checked in.
I had breakfast included in my room rate, and it was european style with a nice selection of granola, muesli, yoghurt, fruit, breads, pastries, hard boiled eggs, cold meat and cheese. Coffee was served to your table, but there was no hot food being offered.
Room service was good, with prompt and tasty food, and there is a sports bar and a restaurant behind the hotel, which both had good food.
Location wise, the hotel was literally right next door to the Air Canada Centre. There was an airbridge to the centre, so you could walk across in an enclosed walkway, and therefore get into the underground walkways that goes up to the Eaton Centre, which is only about 10-15 minutes away. Given it was -20 degrees and snowing outside, this was great!
Overall, I thought this was a very nice hotel, good value and location, and excellent staff.
