I have never stayed there but have been to the restaurant (next to lobby) for lunch and dinner. This is one of those places that i had seen for years but never discovered until recently.
The restaurant is secluded with a nice upscale interior. Patio is perfect for a date or just hanging out with friends.
The rooftop pool/patio is superb. Perfect for a great night in summer to enjoy the view and... more

Really nice hotel located in downtown toronto. The rooms have a pull out sofa bed and small kitchen area. Very clean and wooden floors are nice.

The indoor pool is great along with the saunas in each bathroom. The best part is the outdoor jacuzzi on the roof. Really nice on a chilly day or at night.

I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars because it is still definitely a nice hotel and I'd give it 4 stars if it were just presenting itself as a nice place to stay, but the general attitude of the staff and the large number of small inconveniences are really inexcusable in a place that's trying to sell itself as a luxury hotel.
