Another of the Toronto hotels I've stayed at frequently, though a 2nd choice to the Sheraton Centre for me. This one of the grand hotels built in the past, with beautiful architecture and design inside, and it's not dated, though I can't say when it was renovated last. You really feel special when you walk into the lobby. Refined elegance is the best way to put it, and I certainly don't dress that way. If arriving in Toronto, the airport bus doesn't stop nearby; it'll be several blocks of walking to get to it. Also, the hotel isn't part of the PATH underground walkway system that exists downtown on the other side of Yonge St. Still it's near the subway system, and is right by the financial and entertainment districts of the city. Also, this side of Yonge Street is less built-up and it's a different feel for the city you get walking around here. Lots of great food places (restaurants and markets) are nearby. The staff here are very friendly and ready to assist. Check-in has always gone smoothly, though, naturally, slows down if a lot of folks are there at the same time. I've always been given a suite upgrade here with access to the lounge. Sometimes just a junior suite, sometimes a bigger one. There can be a lot of walking to get to your room, if it's in one of the far reaches; the hotel takes up a city block, but isn't very tall. Views will not really be an issue here. The rooms and bathrooms have always been terrific here. The Club Lounge is of good size and I've never been in it when it's been crowded. A smaller selection of items at both mealtimes here than at the Sheraton Centre, but still good. Tables and sitting areas are spaced apart, so you don't feel crowded even if there are a good number of people there. The restaurant, Victoria, has been a great place to eat for a long time. Their Sunday brunch is something special and worth making a reservation for. I do like staying here, especially if it's not wintertime with cold temps. There is a special feeling entering the hotel or walking though the lobby, and it stays right with you when you get to your room.
