We spent one night here as a birthday getaway and loved everything about it, with the one exception of not being able to get the air conditioning cold enough.
The hotel has beautiful old world charm and is very well maintained in all areas. The bathrooms are spacious and well appointed, and the beds are fitted with Frette sheets. I would have liked a softer bed, but my husband liked it firm.
The windows are small,as is typical of an older hotel, but they open, which is a bonus for any hotel.
Upon check in, the bell man made conversation with me, and actually seemed interested in where we were from, the reason for our stay, our dinner plans, etc.
Upon check out, the concierge asked us about our dinner at the CN Tower and if we would recommend it to other guests (we would).
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the living room lounge before 10:00 am, which as included with our room. It wasn't just a cold continental breakfast either! The hotel chef made one of most delicious omelets for each of us, and we had our choice of fresh fruit, home made muffins, and fresh squeezed juice.
After breakfast, we strolled around the Bloor Street shops, and had our car brought around when we were ready to leave
The whole experience was outstanding and we will definitely return.
Incidentally, the cost was only a few dollars more than the large chain hotels downtown, but so worth it!
