I stayed for one night at this hotel during a 20 hr business visit. It is a classic hotel in Toronto reminiscent of the British Colony. It is a massive property with over 1,300 rooms and long corridors. The rooms are extremely well kept and equipped. The restrooms are pretty small but the fixtures and amenities are quite good.

enjoyed the decor of this historical building, although my room was quite renovated and new. my room was spacious at 500 square feet, which gave me ample space to spread my stuff out. i enjoyed the pool and fitness centre. easy access to downtown using the PATH system, so there was no needed to take your coat.

Stayed there for a conference. While the hotel is beautiful, it doesn't quite have the atmosphere of a chateau laurier or frontenac. The rooms are very well appointed and beds are comfortable. Parking is rather expensive, but you are in downtown toronto. Great place to stay if you can get a conference or group rate.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
