For the long holiday weekend, the thought was rather than travelling somewhere we would try a "staycation" type of long weekend. I'm very glad we made this choice. The stay was perfect. The property is beautiful and is both of a size and has enough to do for a proper staycation without feeling the need to go elsewhere. We did everything and everything was great. Dinner at Bosk was delicious and the service was great. We also had breakfast there, which was also great. We took in the lobby lounge at different times - once for High Tea and at other times for drinks, coffee or a snack. The atmosphere is great. Live piano playing or jazz singing is a great touch. Not to mention the lobby lounge is beautiful. We also took in the pool area and made use of the gym. We had a spa appointment which was a great way to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon - I've been to the other spas at the 5-stars in the city and I'm confident in saying you won't find a better one than this one. I can't say enough about the welcoming atmosphere and service from the staff. There were so many who made our stay great, but at the risk of singling someone out, I do have to mention Crystol in the Lobby Lounge. She was amazing and helpful and a great personality to deal with. The room we had was called an Executive King room and it was very nice, including a large bathroom with nice separate tub to soak in and watch some TV!
If you're looking for a getaway without having to getaway on a flight, I would highly recommend this experience. And you can make of it what you will and do how much you want to do. If you're visiting Toronto, this should definitely be on your list of choices.
