    Wi Fi works fine, to log on you need to accept the charges but we were told that they will be refunded when we leave. Service at front desk was excellent. Missed Copa Libertadores in Foxsports channel

    Dreadful location in the middle of construction away from any buzz of Toronto. Stay somewhere else and not put up with the groups, conventions and all the "annoyingness" that they bring with them.

    They give you chips when you order a drink. Small gesture. But more food is never a bad thing.

    Terrific hotel. Wifi is lightning fast. Shower pressure is strong. Great views if on high floors. Breakfast buffet is delicious and has everything. Would highly recommend for your stay in Toronto.

    Hotel is good, staff friendly. Easy walk to nearby pier. Wish it was a little closer to the mall. But nice views if you get a room with a view over the lake.

    Nice gym, free weights + machines, tiny but good... Inside pool and a running concierge along the "coastline" makes that a good place for being active

    Good location if you like a little leg stretch to get to downtown hotspots. It's perfect walking distance to lots of TO destinations. Nice pool, too!

    The walls ARE really thin here, but the staff service makes up for it. They allowed early check in and late check out, 500 Starwood points in lieu of maid service, and free printing of my bus ticket.
