The HRT met all my expectations of a business hotel with one minor ding. It has the right location, excellent service, a good price/value proposition and the comfort and cleanliness of a top-ranked hotel.
Location: Within two blocks of the convention centre (10 minute walk). Lobby is a few yards from the Airport Express Shuttle stop (King and Peter, in front of the Shoppers Drug Mart). From Pearson: add in 15-20min extra travel time for construction. To Pearson: 5.45 AM pick-up was delay free.
Price: Used 8K HGP points/night or 2.3c/points at time of booking. Thepointsguy.com pegs the devalued Hyatt currency at 1.8c/points. Felt like it was a fair transaction. A redemption that meets your travel goal is always a good deal.
Dining: Breakfast experience. Buffet tab is priced higher than a la carte. Portion is generous. For the other meals there are plenty of restaurants nearby that are well covered by TA reviewers.
Room: A/C was cool to cold. Had unobstructed view of the tower. Room and bath were spotless.
Workspace: Desk size was about 25X50 with a white surface that reflects the neon light built into the wall recess. Reading condition was excellent. Was spacious enough for a 15’ MacBook Pro or unfolding a full newspaper.
E-port located in wall space in front of desk: 4 electrical plugs. Phone and Ethernet jack. Audio and PC jacks for display on HDTV. Perfect ergonomics.
Wi-fi was very sluggish during evening time. Had no Ethernet cable so could not tell if wired access would have made a difference. 2-tier pricing plan. HGP members get a pass.
Final words: If the HRT were a prospect, yes, it should be a first round draft in your travel plan.
