Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/City Centre
Very good value
Stayed here for 10 nights in June 2004, and found
it great value for money with good facilities and location (immediate vicinity is a little rough but after a five minute walk you are in the city centre). The concierge was very helpful and all the staff were polite and courteous.
Overall for a 3 star hotel I'd give it 8/10.
Excellent Hotel- Highly Recommended
We had a good experience at this hotel. We ordered food from the restaurant and they brought it up to our room...
Our room had a huge king sized bed and a jacuzzi, it was amazing! It is also in an excellent location very close to popular attractions such as the CN tower (short cab ride away) and the Eaton's Centre (walking distance). You should seriously consider this hotel as it is definietly great value!
O.K. hotel, not so good neighborhood
this hotel is okay but the neighborhood is a little creepy. The first time we left the hotel we were approached by a man asking for a handout. Across the street was a club that advertised Naked Chicks and Hockey Sticks. The first room we were shown was a no smoking room with the smell of smoke still lingering. We asked for and received another room, bigger, and for the same price. The pool was on the small side and the water was very cold. All four kids in our party got some kind of rash from the hot tub. The breakfast was standard hotel fare. Nothing special. I don't think I would stay here again. I would probably find a hotel closer to the attractions as this hotel is a good 25 min walk from HHOF and CN Tower. The staff at this hotel,on the other hand, were very helpful and friendly.
I stayed in Comfort Suite City Center in Feb, 17 2004 with my girlfreind for a late valentis day gift. It was great. I had a room with one king bed. The room was big. The bath room was small but OK.
It's only $89. Isn't that great? Maybe, because it winter there aren't so many people. It was quiet. I did drive so I don't need warry about parking.
The pool and gym are small. Still, thanks to the winter, there's nobody there. My girlfriend and I totally enjoyed the pool.
We had breakfirst in the morring. It's just some simple staff. But for $86, I say it's great!
We spent 2 nights here last weekend and could not fault it. The most amazing place to stay. Everyone was helpful and friendly. The room was fantastic, en suite, with a separate living area fully equipped. Coming from England , it was a palace, you could live there. A great jacuzzi bath and power shower. Peaceful and comfortable for jetlagged travellor to sleep as needed. Easy walking distance to the excellent Eaton Centre and the subway. Would suit a couple or family. The complimentary breakfast is basic but there is a Caseys Bar attached for a heartier start to the day. Highly recommended.
Definitely NOT worth it
My family and I decided to try a downtown Toronto hotel and we were VERY disappointed. First of all the hotel was highly understaffed and hardly anything was ever open. The rooms were average but the pool was quite small. The hotel was not good for families because it was situated in a bad place. There were even some drug deals going on outside. The absolute worst though was the news we received at breakfast. We arrived at the small buffet breakfast the hotel provided when a lady leaned over to us and asked if we had our car parked in the underground hotel parking lot. We said yes and she told us we better check on it because her car had been broken into the night before. We went down to check our car and sure enough our back window was broken into and our camera was stolen. We later found out that this had happened to about 7 other families and they hadn't done anything about it. We did end up getting our night stay for free but it ruined our vacation!
I took my son (7 yrs old), mom(52 yrs old) and grandmother (84 yrs old) over Labor Day weekend 2002. Cleanliness is a very important factor for me especially with a young child and senior.Hotel surpassed my expectations for cleanliness especially for the value. We stayed in a 1 bedroom King Suite with jacuzzi for about $80 per night. The sofa bed was not the most comfortable, but my son didn't seem to have a problem with it. Food was ok and restaurant was understaffed, but service was still good, very friendly atmosphere.
Excellent value and very good location
I have stayed at most of Toronto's major hotels and can say with confidence that the Comfort Suites is excellent value. The hotel is just a few years old so the facilities are in excellent shape. The rooms are quite nice and the indoor pool and jacuzzi is a nice relaxing place to wind down at the end of the day. The hotel is a few blocks from the subway and shopping. Definitely worth a try.
Very clean and good value
The hotel was very clean and only a block away from the eaton center.If you intend to do more shopping further up young in the yorkville district it is a cold walk or an easy subway ride.One bedroom suite was small but works out perfect for small families with the sofa bed.The only major negative is some windows look out to The club fillmore with a large sign advertising face dances,couch dances adult playground.The other family we were travelling with asked to move their room rather than explain the signage.They got a new room in five minutes.A very sound value at 159 cdn.The park hyatt at double the rate is by far the best hotel in toronto.
We stayed at the Comfort Suites in November, 2002 and were very happy with it. A new hotel (Toronto hotels tend to be older), everything was very clean and our room was awesome. We got a penthouse, one-room suite and it was perfect. We had a large sitting area on the lower level (complete with bathroom and pull-out couch) which was perfect for the times when we were relaxing from all the walking around the city. Our bedroom was on the second level and had a jacuzzi tub which was great. The room was perfect since occassionally one of us (there were three of us- I took my mother and mother in law) would want to take a nap and could retreat upstarirs while the others relaxed watching tv downstairs. Perfect alternate to the standard room. A great deal for $125 (with parking) US per night.
We had covered parking which we accessed with our room card. The garage was heated and located beneath the hotel. It gave us a very safe feeling, especially being three women, that was important to us.
The location I would have to say is a little out of the way, unless you plan on spending a lot of time at the Eaton Center, which is just a five minute walk. There wasn't a large selections or restaurants in the immediate area but we ended up driving (it was pretty cold) around town so that wasn't really important to us.
We had a little trouble trying to get information from the front desk as to places to eat, visit, etc, but I believe the staff person was new. He confirmed a higher rate with me but was quick to adjust it once I explained that this was not the rate I had confirmed online. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel which is convenient, but we were a little put off by the abundance of fruit flies there as well as in the lobby lounge. The house wine was surpisingly good. My mom even went around the corner the next day and picked up a bottle of it to enjoy in the room.
If you are looking for a new, clean, no frills hotel at a very reasonable price, this is the one to choose.
