        The room was nice and the bed was good.

        There was no Free wifi n the room, you had to pay for it $ 13,95 a day. In the lobby the wifi didn't worked with my apple (I-phone and note- book). In this world it is crazy that it is not for free and that the whole hotel hasn't wifi (This hotel is 5 star rated). Furthermore the bathroom is out of time (I couldn't lay in the bad (to small). Price was $ 159 a night but I had to pay $ 259 a night (breakfast $ 20,00 and car parking $ 30,00 and Internet $ 14,00 and taxes

        It was very convenient because my wife and kids were at the concert in the same building.

        I felt the room could have been a little cleaner. Dusty in areas and the carpet had stains and looked dirty.

        Your staff at every occasion, see note below - went above and beyond room was clean, nice to have mini fridge and we were delighted to have a keurig in room.

        it was not that we did not like it, but.... i booked though Booked.net and was very glad I had printed out my receipt as it indicated that by booking early - breakfast was included. We went down for breakfast I gave them our room number, and there was no breakfast coupon. I went back up to room, and brought down my receipt. the manager of the breakfast was most gracious, and went to lobby where it was accounted for and we enjoyed the breakfast. The restaurant manager said the next time, I should show this printed receipt when checking in. I had done this, for which he apologized again. The other thing was the parking pass. We were told we could add to our bill which I did on check out. When we left and gave the changed ticket received from check out - it was not in system and still indicated we owed. again I showed our paid bill. The attendant was most gracious, apologizing. I have a feeling they have to apologize a lot for these type of inconsistencies. Thanks

        The staff were great. They upgraded our room upon check in to a beautiful suite. It was a nice surprise. The bar/restaurant was very relaxing and a great view of the Roger's Centre.

        My only complaint is that the pillows are awfull! The big ones are too big and hard and the small ones are too soft and flimsy.

        The fact that it was in walking distance to almost everything.

        We feel that the price was a little bit too much. If you are a business man and company pays for your room then fine but for a leisure trip a little too high.

        Perfect location right at the Rogers Center(Skydome) and CN Tower for a romantic and very scenic dinner, or walk along Front Street to other restaurants. Watch the Blue Jays play and even walk to The Eatons Centre which is open 364 days a year.

        The pool area is a little dark being totally inside, and could use some more light and plants as there were none.

        This hotel has an excellent location right next to the CN tower, and only a short walk to the Hop on Hop off bus stop.

        This hotel is one big long building and the lifts are in the middle. Our room was right at the end and its quite a walk with your bags, or even just to get out every day. Also we looked at a concrete wall not nice. Choose a room on a high floor to get a view of the city and near the lifts for easy access.
