I booked this hotel for a 1 night stay in Toronto through a comparison website and got it for a very good price online. Our main reason was the central location but after reading the negative reviews on here I was dubious whether I had made the right choice. But I needn't have worried.
Upon arrival we were greeted with the warm signature cookies, which are absolutely delicious by the way and we couldn't resist a second helping, check-in was quick and efficient and the reception staff and concierge were very friendly and professional. Our room had modern decor, newly refurbished, clean and crisp white linen with a nice cotton duvet rather than the nasty synthetic unsanitary blankets you get in so many other 4 star hotels.
The king size bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was well stocked with high quality honey and coriander toiletries. We made use of the gym and pool and parked our car in the underground self parking lot which allows you to drive in and out as many times as you like over the 24-hour booking term.
We went out for dinner and breakfast so I am not able to comment on the restaurants in the hotel (but the 3rd cookie on check-out was very much appreciated!) but all other aspects of our stay were fantastic. I am really surprised to see so many negative reviews on here, we travel extensively and have stayed in 4/5 star hotels all over the world and I would not hesitate to highly recommend this one. If our travels will ever take us back to Toronto I will definitely come back to the Doubletree by Hilton Downton.
