I stayed here for a night with my son when we had a concert booked. Unfortunately for us our concert got cancelled so we tried to just make the most of it. We really loved the room and hotel. The ambiance of the hotel is very exquisite and charming. They are located on the other walkway which was neat to check out as we walked to the Eaton centre. I saw security in place for the entrance of the pathway to be used during certain hours. The room has every thing you ever need in a room. We didn’t get one of the super fancy rooms yet ours had a mini kitchen, equip with everything to cook meals there, plus in room laundry. Their beds were super comfy as well. I was super impressed by how they utilized the space within the room based on how the room space wasn’t all that big. The service was also really good. We had lunch downstairs and ordered room service in for dinner. It’s conveniently located downtown. However parking is a bit tricker down there. Overall, an amazing experience and will gladly stay here again

Pros Great location and reasonably priced. Pleasant check in experience. Upgraded from historic to tower. Cons Room was small but fine for one night. In-room dining does not start until 5pm. Elevators incredibly slow. Typically waited 5+ min each time. I got off elevator at bottom around 4:30 and there were over 20 people waiting. Very strange and based on other reviews elevators seem to be a common issue.
