Absolutely fabulous; Toronto’s oldest continuously-run hotel is a must-visit. It’s a well-known feature of this hotel that each room is entirely individual; each one designed by a different artist or designer. I stayed in two rooms: #315 “The Today Room”, and #415 “Snapshot”. Neither room was ‘large’ by today’s average standards, of course, but every effort has been made here to make the most of each space. The Today Room blends the bare bones of the hotels brick walls with light hues and an impressive black and white ceramic mosaic in the bathroom. In one corner is a re-upholstered captain’s chair that is reminiscent of a dentist chair, but suits the room very well. The cramped desk area is the only aspect that detracts from an otherwise comfortable room. The Snapshot room features an inventive full-wall collage of abstract, fall-colour photography. Both rooms come with an Android tablet for guest use. The rest of the hotel oozes with character, with expansive creaky old hallways, art displayed everywhere, and an ancient elevator. Breakfast at the café was really good, and not too expensive. Parking is right across the street, but is very limited. Truly a unique and rewarding experience; one I look forward to repeating soon. 10/10
