This week I was snowed in while in Toronto for an interview and ended up staying at The Cosmopolitan.
We checked in late around 9 p.m. - This is a boutique hotel and the tiny lobby reflected that. There is an attractive bar that had one customer at it and we planned to go and have a drink as we were told that it was open until eleven.
I had called ahead and asked for a room with a bath- an essential hotel luxury. When we went to the room it had no bath. Back at the front desk I asked for a room with a bath and was told there was none available. However they did upgrade my room for the same price. As I had no overnight bag with me the front desk clerk was kind and gave me toothbrushes and paste.
We opened the door and were thrilled - the view was spectacular. The Toronto skyline was at its finest and I suggest that everyone should spend one night at least with such a view. The suite had a great view of the city skyline and Lake Ontario in the background. Hotel staff were efficient and helpful.
The room came with full amenities - full kitchen and laundry facilities. There were snacks and a variety of expensive mini fridge offerings - even an intimacy kit for 27 dollars.
There was a sitting area and a bedroom that were clean - the leather couch was cold! Hard to combat that considering the weather. I was so thrilled with the view- We decided to head downstairs for a drink and some appetizers - but it was closed before 10 p.m. Dial a bottle is a great resource when stuck in a snow storm - they will even bring you snacks.
The number of TV channels is limited and so is the hot water. The bathroom is the weakest part of this hotel room.
The bedroom had a fabulous view- both evening and morning and the bed was very comfortable. I must warn you that there is massive construction going on and it will wake you up and keep you up. For the early risers- you don’t need to worry.
I really loved the sleek feel of the room and the generous space. We booked it online and got it at a discount. To be in Toronto - as I had just been at the Eaton Chelsea for PDAC for such a reasonable price was astounding. I have paid more to stay in a Best Western in Nebraska.
I highly recommend a stay at The Cosmopolitan - check for discounts to make it even more enjoyable. With city views on three corners it is spectacular. The location is excellent - close to so many attractions and restaurants.
