We entered the lobby on a beautiful early summer afternoon greeted by a sleek, modern reception area. It was a first time visit for us to the Hazelton hotel, and our immediate impression was a very good one. Cold water was offered as we checked in, and we were escorted to our master king suite. Our Porter ensured we had everything we required and also made sure we knew how to operate all of the "technology" in the room before leaving us. This was a nice touch, as the rooms are very modern and there are many "automatic" features to become familiar with. The room was spacious and nicely decorated with understated elegance. The bathroom and dressing area are spectacular!
A pet peeve of mine is high end hotels who nickel and dime guests for things like Internet and water. The Hazelton, thankfully, does no such thing! In fact the Porter ensures that you know the Internet password as well as letting you know that all items in the mini bar fridge are free of charge! ( other than the alcoholic beverages).
The hotel has a great lobby bar, which by Thursday night was really rocking!!! Of course being in the heart of Yorkville, there were also endless options for dining, drinking, and shopping outside of the hotel all within walking distance.
We will definitely stay at the Hazelton on future visits to Toronto....a wonderful place to stay!
