We stayed in Room 831 which had a view of the Rogers Centre and the CN Tower. The room has a bold masculine design in black and light wood. There is a large flat screen TV, a king sized bed, mini-bar and a Nespresso machine ( coffee pods were 2 dollars each). The big window with the view of the CN tower extends across the entire width of the room, so there is lots of light. For sleeping there are blackout blinds. We asked for a room with a shower, which was like a large glass cube in the middle of the room. It was about 4 by 6 feet. There was a large rain shower head as well a handheld spray. Large pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were provided. The toilet was in its own little enclosure. There were also 2 large wardrobes and drawers in the bathroom area. The design of the room allows you to have the bathroom flow into the rest of the room, or you can separate the 2 spaces by simply closing 2 doors and the wood blinds in the shower.
The only flaw we found with the room was the lack of towel hooks in the bathroom.

One of the best things about this hotel is it's location. The back entrance to Union Station is literally across the street and the shuttle to the island airport is a block away. Le Germain Maple Leaf Square is connected to the the PATH system so you can go underground all the way to Eaton centre - handy when it rains or in winter. There is also an interior access to the adjacent mall that has a restaurant, a sports bar, a full service supermarket (Longos with a Starbucks) and a LCBO outlet.
Our reservation came with breakfast included. This was a
great healthy breakfast with cheese, cold cuts fruit, pastries, porridge and an automatic cappucino machine. Breakfast is served until 11:30 am on weekdays and until noon on weekends. The large breakfast area on the 2nd floor had big picture windows so you watch all the scurrying office workers while you relax and slowly sip your coffee.
Le Germain hotels have always been one of our favourite boutique hotel and Le Germain Maple Leaf Square has even made us bigger fans. Everything was exceptional, from the friendly welcome to the decor to the breakfast to the location.

Bonjour PretPourPartir,

Your positive review gives pretty much everyone who works here a reason to smile. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

The comment you made re: the towel hooks is well noted. Similar to the irons that are disguised as regular millwork, the most convenient hook doubles as the knob for the shower door. It has a concave top and keeps your towel within easy reach.

We’re glad to have maintained your positive perception of Germain hotels, and look forward to welcoming you back to any of our properties soon.

Merci encore,
Murray Henderson
Director of Rooms Division

The value simply is not there for the cost of staying at this facility. Many other hotels in same area offer as good a facililty for half the price. Breakfast was very good but again other locations offer the same service.
What is with a full length bathroom shower blind controlled from outside the bathroom?

Stayed at the Le Germain last week for two nights as I wanted to visit Toronto. The hotel is
very modern with the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. Good buffet breakfast inlcuded in the price. The staff was very friendly and helpful with a restaurant reservation and
when I put the tv on to watch the Blue Jays-Red Sox game and all audio was in Japanese. I
went to the desk to ask how to get the ballgame in English and they told me they would look
into it and call my room. Five minutes later, someone came to the room the tell me that I had
on the international channel and that the game was on another station in English (who knew
or expected the game to be on two different channels).

Kon’nichiwa bob I,

Kyōyū suru tame no okage de (thanks for sharing). Toronto is a melting pot of the world’s cultures, so it’s great that you jumped right in for the full experience. We’re glad to have been able to provide you with an excellent sleep.

We will see what linguistic surprises we can come up with for your next visit.

Thanks again for choosing to stay with us.

My husband and I, along with our families, stayed at Le Germain Maple Leaf Square during our
wedding weekend in May. We also hosted a farewell brunch at the hotel for
our wedding guests. From the check-in process to the amazing food,
everything was executed with perfection. The staff was extremely friendly
and helpful, and everyone was aware of our event, taking the time to
congratulate us and offer any assistance possible all weekend.

The front desk staff was exceptional. They were not only the most
professional and inviting hotel staff I've experienced, but they went above
and beyond to help us and our guests. When we took some professional photos
at the hotel, a staff member customized the lighting in the lobby to better
coordinate with our colors.

During our Sunday brunch, the toaster stopped working. Immediately, the
staff began toasting bread in the kitchen and individually serving guests. I
was so impressed with their quick action and amazing customer service!

The rooms were breathtaking. The beds were extremely comfortable and the
bathroom amenities were luxurious. My husband and I each received treats and
welcome notes from the wonderful Meeting and Events Sales Manager we worked
with, which was such a lovely and personal touch.

It was truly a perfect and effortless weekend thanks to the wonderful hotel,
especially the staff. We can't wait for our next stay at Le Germain Maple
Leaf Square!

Due to the many positive reviews on TripAdvisor I made a reservation at Hôtel Le Germain and boy was that a great decision. The service was beyond amazing, the rooms were modern, impeccably clean and comfortable. Le Germain is in a great location and the staff was not shy about offering great suggestions on things to do. From the moment we pulled up this was a 5-star experience and I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Always check the reviews before booking and if you can, call the hotel and ask questions. Good custo...

My wife and I, along with our 2 year old daughter would like to thank the staff at Hotel Le Germain Maple Leaf Square for an amazing stay last night.

From the time I made the reservations until we checked out, we were treated like valued customers and like gold. I was very impressed with the politeness and thoughtfulness of the front desk staff as we were immediately upgraded for no reason, which made our stay that much better.

There were several very thoughtful things in our room already set up for our daughter. A baby monitor, a robe, a toddler bath tub, a diaper geenie, and a very cute lamb blanket just for her. It made her very happy, which makes my wife and I very happy.

You can tell that they pay attention to every single detail to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable and worry free.

Our room was very spacious, very clean and the amnesties are simply the best. It was quiet, and very chic, and the hotel had many little touches that make it what it is, the best hotel in Toronto.

We were extremely impressed and will surely stay there again. The attention to detail and the thoughtfulness that was put into our stay was unbelievable on the part of the staff and we thank them for that.

Dear jonandangie,

I have passed your comments about the lamb blanket onto our housekeeping team. The 3-for-1 happiness factor made their day.

We feel that everyone deserves to shine, so we’re glad you felt like gold. After all, it’s all in the details!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

I would like to recognize Le Germaine for their fine hotel and excellent service. From valet staff to management, my experience was 5 star. In particular, our company just completed a 2 day workshop that included a medical emergency and all staff went above and beyond to assist us. There are plenty of hotels to choose from in this city, and, for me, service is what separates the good from the great.

In particular, I would like to recognize Nadine, Lana, and Julian for their excellent service and attitude. It made a lasting impression upon attendees and made for a successful event.
