Stayed there in January for two nights while in town to see Neil Young at Massey Hall. after reading all the customer reveiws we took a chance and it payed off. We normaly stay at a Westin or Fairmont property in Toronto.. We were pleasantly surprised, we checked in early with no issues, room was a good size and handy to have the small kitchenette. Our television was static ridden when we turned it on a quick call to the front desk and it was fixed in 10 minutes(speaking of the TV, its not your typical hotel cable, has TMN at nocharge so you dont have to pay 15 bucks to watch a movie).
Pool was clean and well decorated, did not feel like it was in the basement.
our biggest surprise was dinner, we booked the 3 course gourmet pkg when we reserved online for $25.00 more than the room rate expecting typical hotel food. Service was attentive but not overbearing, we sat in the club chairs at the side of the bar and enjoyed a recomended bottle of wine from a knowledgeable server and ordered a pasta dish and against my normaly better judgement i ordered the rib steak rare. Pasta arrived perfectly el-dente, the steak arived on a plater with the bone frenched (as good as any KEG rib ive had) perfectly char grilled and pink to blue center. if I could complain it would be that the steak was to big. well worth the 25.00 for 115.00 worth of food..
As in other reviews the breakfast was average and service was good.
The area does leave a little to be desired. On the walk back from Massey hall on Sunday night there were a few ladies plying their trade within a block of the hotel (also very freindly by the way :)
We would stay again.
O yeah, on the second night we opted for the spa pkg nigh for 30.00 and my wife quite enjoyed her 60 min massge which books for much higher thn 30 bucks, good value in adding these things in a pkg.
