Stayed here on business for two days and had a great time. I opted for this over more standard alternatives like Royal York, Sheraton, etc. with no regrets. It's got a pretty lively restaurant and cafe, very original and spacious rooms, and a cool/hipster vibe. They also treat non-hipsters well and I must say the place was full of attractive people! Room was a little pricey at $279 but I stayed here more for the experience than anything, and for that, it's worth it.
My first night, we went up to the rooftop patio and ate lobster nachos, a root veg/greens salad, gourmet mac n' cheese, and a rum baba desert; three beers and a cocktail. Bill came to $100+tip and we were contently full of delicious stuff. Not a bargain, but again fun times!
The one cautionary note is that this place seemed to take forever to get to via streetcar from Yonge St./downtown hub. It's a great walk (lots of awesome boutiques/restos; the famous Bellwoods-Trinity Park) but I had to do the commute and found it a bit slow to get around.
