I stayed here twice in October 2012. The first time was in a deluxe room. I was disappointed with the size of the room and amenities for the price when compared to Trump Chicago. I decided to give the hotel another shot and stayed again, this time in a suite which I thought would be a better comparison to what I experienced at Trump Chicago. Although the room was moderately bigger than the deluxe, it again lacked the amenities and size especially comparing pricing to what I get in Chicago.
Trump Chicago features Sub Zero full fridges in the room along with stove, microwave, dishwasher, granite island with sink etc... In Chicago, for around $600, I get an 1100 sq ft + suite with a corner fireplace, dining room table, and 2 washrooms. For that amount in Toronto, I received half the space with a fraction of the amenities.
Trump Chicago only features the expresso machine in the room in comparison.
The Trump Toronto rooms however are comfortable and quiet.
The hotel does not have a steam room but only a dry sauna. This is a drawback for those who enjoy a nice hot steam on a cold afternoon.
The staff is personable and welcoming. I was dismayed when I noticed the rates fluctuate for the same room by substantial amounts. I tried to book the same room I was in at the same price for a few weeks later and it was almost $200 more. No explanation. Then I received a 30% discount offer on all suites. When I attempted to avail myself of this opportunity, I noticed that the same suite I had just paid $599 for + tax was now listed at $880 plus tax . They then offered the 30% discount on the $880 price so there room was actually more expensive.
This type of bait and switch is insulting to travellers who choose 5 star hotels. I need fairly consistent rates in order to keep utilizing a hotel in order to properly assess and budget.
I returned to the Hazelton in Yorkville after this experience and paid less and received more. I think Trump Toronto will end up suffering if it continues along this line for what they are delivering.
