Myself and 6 of my girlfriends travelled to Toronto for the weekend on Oct. 21 to celebrate my birthday and see the musical Wicked. I booked our rooms online through Travelzoo and got a rate of $115/night, which I thought was a great deal. I had done a LOT of research before selecting a hotel as I did not want to stay in a dump for 3 nights, and was a bit wary as the Delta Chelsea had mixed reviews...I'm so glad I decided to try it for myself! I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. The Airport Shuttle drops you off right on the doorstep of the hotel. Upon check in I asked the front desk clerk if I could possibly get free room upgrades, and he was happy to oblige (and made sure we still had adjoining rooms). I also asked to have fans and mini fridges for both rooms and they were brought up within minutes of arriving. One of my girlfriends had called ahead and asked if they could decorate my room for my birthday, so I arrived to a large wall banner and balloons everywhere, plus a complimentary tray was sent up with wine, cheese, crackers, fruit, cookies and milk. The second day they sent up a dessert of chocolates and dipped fruits. Any time we asked any staff member anything they were super nice and helpful, and made you feel right at home.
We had 3 and 4 people per room so we went through towels fairly quickly but it was never an issue to get more. The beds were amazingly comfortable, and despite having 4 occupants the room never felt too small. Loved that we could walk out onto a balcony. The adult-only pool and hot tub on the 27th floor are a great feature. Despite reading numerous complaints about the noise, I heard very little from the hallway, other rooms or outdoors. We didn't eat at any of the hotel restaurants but we did visit Monarchs Pub a couple of times and enjoyed the atmosphere there. Maybe the biggest selling point of this hotel to me is location. Minutes walk to our theatre, the Eaton Centre and the "Times Square" of Toronto, and with 4 entrances bordering different streets, it took no time to get anywhere, even in heels!
The only complaint I have (and this is very minor) is that the rooms didn't have free internet. You could get WiFi in the lobby for free but if you wanted to use it in your room it cost $13.95 per day. This is kinda ridiculous in this day and age where most places have free WiFi, but is certainly not a deal breaker to stay at this hotel. Overall I LOVED it there and can't wait for my next trip to Toronto to stay there again!
