Downtown hotels in Toronto are chronically sold out, but the Eaton seems to have room most of the time. The rooms are a little dated (carpet, wallpaper etc.), but the furniture is reasonably modern. Desk/ chair are pretty good if you have to work from the hotel. I like the cordless phone, nice when you can walk around with it when on a conference call.
The bathroom has the typical shower/ tub combo, also a little older but the two times I was there everything worked fine, with plenty of water pressure. Sink/ fixtures have been updated recently, with a granite counter top. Nice array of toiletries, with a faux turn-of-the-century labeling ("pharmacopeia"). Both the room and bathroom were clean.
The A/C in the room was OK. The fan was a touch noisy, but it kept the room at a good temperature.
The beds are very comfortable, and the linens were spotless. Because of this I've not felt the need to find a different hotel in this area. There is a good radio/ alarm clock with an iPod dock.
The TV is fairly large, flat screen, but picture quality is sub par because of the standard TV input. Hotel managers, let me let you in on a little secret. This HD thing is here to stay. Wireless access is good throughout the hotel, I did not have any connectivity issues nor dropped VPN connections. Speed is adequate but not stellar. There is a wired connection available as well, which I did not use. Clothes iron worked well, definitely above average.
On the top floor there is a lap pool, hot tub and gym. The lap pool is definitely for exercise, it is not warm. You have to keep moving. The hot tub was pretty clean. The fitness equipment is excellent, modern and well maintained. Treadmills, ellipticals, weights, stationary bikes etc. Most have a TV. The only downside is that it's all one open area. The air is quite moist because of the pool, so 5 minutes on the treadmill and you're already sweating. The (men's) locker room was clean, good showers, and a sauna. A nice touch is the swim suit dryer.
There is a coffee/ snack place (Starbucks), a restaurant, and a bar. Service is good, quality is reasonable, but it's expensive. I'd go as far as saying a little overpriced. But there is definitely lots of room to sit, including a courtyard area at the back.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, and provided some good restaurant/ shopping recommendations.
