This was our second time at this hotel. The decor is not the traditional elegant style of other Ritz properties (Orlando, Naples). It is more modern (Ritz Battery Park) and caters to a business crowd but still elegant. Bathrooms are large and beautiful - better than any other Ritz we have been to. There was a wow factor during our first stay (Toronto needed a fresh 5-star hotel). Televisions in the bathroom mirrors, candy stations for kids in the lobby were some of the highlights. This time around I was less impressed. The breakfast was just ok and after a day in the city we arrived with an sick child around 2:30 to a room that was not yet made even though housekeeping was on our floor when we left hours and hours before. I settled for fresh towels because we couldn't wait and our child was not feeling well. Room service lunch for one adult and one child was not quite as ordered and came to nearly $90 with no drinks. For $500 a night on a weekend I was feeling a bit underwhelmed (Battery Park in NYC which is also a business hotel in a big city has better rates and summer packaged). Wifi is extra and Valet parking is a whopping $45 per night. Was this great value? No. Would I return? Only with a better package rate. The room was new and well-appointed and the Ritz brand is generally dependable so as far as luxury hotels go in Toronto, it was a very safe bet. The did recognize we had stayed before and the staff is well trained. Next time I might try the Trump or the Four Seasons though and as noted I would definitely look for better value even at this luxury end.
