Just returned from a 4 night stay at this lovely hotel. Lot's of dark wood gave the place a charming "old world" feel. Every single person we interacted with who worked here was over and above nice, friendly, and helpful. From the lovely housekeeper who tidied our room (I think her name was Virginia) to the concierge Fabiana who helped us get tickets for "Last Confession" and a dinner reservation to waiters and front desk staff---all were upbeat and professional.
The location of the hotel is very convenient to a number of attractions. Right across the street is the Royal Ontario Museum. If you go, make sure you splurge the $12 extra to see "The Forbidden City" exhibit. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We ate in the restaurant twice for breakfast and it was a little pricey but excellent service and excellent food. There is a Starbucks around the corner if you don't want to have a full breakfast.
We walked to see Casa Loma (a good mile each way) but definitely doable and the Castle/home was very interesting. If you choose to see it make sure you get the complimentary headsets to use.
There are many cafes, bars, high end shopping all around the hotel. This is a nice place to stay while exploring Toronto.
