Wonderful Home Away From Home

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 18, 2009

This boutique hotel is very conveniently located in downtown Toronto. I booked the room through Travelocity for a better rate, then called to specify a smoking room. There are only 5 smoking rooms in this hotel (7th floor only) so make sure there's availability before you book. I believe all smoking rooms are deluxe level rooms.

My room wasn't ready when I first checked in (arrived at 11AM) but they stowed my luggage while I went exploring the neighborhood. When I returned at 1:30, my room was ready and my luggage brought upstairs. Having just come from the sister hotel, Pantages, I was a little disappointed when I saw no shop in the lobby, but the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

The first thing I noticed was the separate bedroom, rather than a studio. Preferable when having guests over for dinner. Unlike Pantages, this room has a mini-bar fridge, rather than full size, so get the mini-bar key when you check in if you think you'll need the extra space. The kitchen is nicely appointed, and there are loads of items for purchase if you so desire.

In addition to the fridge, there is a 4 burner stove, microwave, dishwasher, pots/pans, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, toaster and service for 4, including glasses and stemware. Plenty of cabinet space for your groceries. It's just a short cab ride away from the Metro supermarket. The freezer is narrow so keep that in mind when purchasing frozen items. They might not fit.

The beds are firm but very comfortable with Egyptian cotton linens. The bedroom has its own television so there's no fighting over the remote. Located under the nightstand, I was pleased to find an air cleaner. Never see those in hotel rooms.

The bathroom was smallish and contained a glass enclosed shower stall. I was a little confused why there was a faucet in the shower stall, but it occurred to me that because you need to step in completely to turn the water on, it allows you to correct the temperature so you're not drenched in cold water. A nice little consideration.

In the living area, there's a loveseat lounger and desk with chair, complete with CD player and relaxation CDs. Separating that from the kitchen area is a breakfast nook with lovely bamboo plants. Overall, it was a nice simplistic design that had "Zen" written all over it. Very soothing.

For added convenience, there is a washer/dryer combo hidden away in the closet.

The turndown service is a nice touch as well. A healing stone is left on your bed, along with incense. You choose the scent when you check in. I prefer Ocean.

Overall, I was quite pleased with the room and service. Bianca at the front desk was simply wonderful and I hope to see her again at Caribana this summer.

Toronto hotel hot spot

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 29, 2007

I stayed at this hotel and it was nice, but overrated The location was great! It was rated by Conde Nast in the top 60 or so of the newest boutique hotels. If you are self sufficient and don't require a lot of hotel maintenance, then this is a great place. However, when I am paying a lot of money for my room, I expect service.

The hotel itself is very new and so is the staff. We encountered numerous service problems. .. These included the wrong breakfast, no answer regarding dinner reservations, plumbing problems, etc. In fact, I would not return based on the service. Even at check out, there was someone complaining because a cornice had fallen on their head when they pulled the blinds down.

funky, modern, located in the Financial Area of Toronto, just off King Street,
Still some delay with liquer service, but should be fixed shortly. I would highly recommend it.
Concierge service available.
