Quiet Day, Making Plans...

Day 34: (same)

Friday, July 4

Happy Birthday, America! Sorry I won't be there for your party, but I decided to spend the day firming up my lodging for the next few weeks. Just one more slot to fill and I'm set.

Just so this won't be completely boring, I'm including a couple of shots of things that struck me as I went about my way ...

And I thought the Macey's episode was bad!!!

Great value cruise with entertaining and informative commentary.. out around the harbour
Included a stopover of an hour on one of the many islands.
Nice and cool and green after the city.

Canada to Dublin

A travel blog entry by cookecarl


... expected time of arrival there is 11 PM which should give me enough time to get to the YHA and check in for the night. That is if all goes well. If not I’ll pitch my tent stretch out and go to sleep. I did this route last year with Mark and enjoyed both rides which gave me time to relax and collect my thoughts. There are always tables to sit at on the ferry with electric connections. I can’t remember ...

Big city life

A travel blog entry by brett_and_fi


... and very much enjoyed the up and coming Canadian beer. Hopefully it makes it to the US and Australia some day. That afternoon was spent walking around the newly developed industrial Distillery District which was composed of small shops and cafes. That evening we made it to the Rodgers Centre to watch the Toronto Blue Jays take on the Boston Red Sox in baseball. We were impressed with the stadium roof being open ...

Asparagus and Spinach make a delightful pair

A travel blog entry by ascotiagirl


... tart was melt in your mouth incredible.

That night we made a strange but yummy meal of summer rolls filled with asparagus and spinach and bruschetta. It was really nice to have a kitchen but I maintain that we can make summer rolls on the road. Leon isn't convinced though. I do concede rolling/wrapping on the picnic table may be difficult.

Fun was had by all (I think) and the show was rocking. Thanks for coming out friends!

    Good location, okay rooms


    This hotel is in a good spot on the far northeast end of the downtown area, metro is nearby, as are some good restaurants and bars. There is a large gay neighborhood to the north which is an interesting walk, and next to the abandoned Maple Leaf Gardens. The room was small but clean.

    Nice Hotel


    My husband and I stayed at the Days Inn August 30-Sept 1/2003 and we had an overall good stay. We didn't spend too much time in the room which I guess was good becuase it wasn't that big. We had a standard room on the 21st floor facing the street and it was small, but there was lots of storage space and a fridge and everything. The elevator was really slow espically if you are on one of the top floors

    Loved the Days Hotel


    Spent 4 nights at the Days Hotel and loved every minute.The reviewer talking about bed bugs must have been in another hotel altogether!!You can't get cleaner than this hotel.The heated swimming pool was huge,the staff was accommodating,the area close to everything Toronto had to offer. And all of this for $55 a night!!!!Guys,come on,be fair and honest in your reviews.

    Great value & excellent location


    After reading the bad reviews for this hotel we were really apprehensive about visiting. However to put your mind at rest if you're about to book/visit, this hotel is friendly, clean and centrally located. The Eaton Centre (a massive shopping mall) is less than 10 minutes walk, so is the subway and a whole host of restaurants, bars and shops. We were on the 3rd floor and the room was very clean and well equipped with coffee and tea making facilities, very clean bathroom with lots of shampoo, soaps etc, and NO bed bugs as one reviewer wrote! Also, how could the rooms be 5ft x 5ft? The bed measures that, doh! I wish people wouldn't write silly reviews as it really does upset sensible people who've booked to go.One negative point, if we're really super-critical, is that the corridors were quite dark. Just some brighter lighting would help plus some nice brilliant white gloss paintwork instead of the coffee colour.Back on the plus side, there's a wonderful, large, clean swimming pool with a small gym next to it. The water was clean, really warm and we had the pool to ourselves each morning. The restaurant, coffee shop and bar were all good value and a good place to watch the world go by. It's a really great value hotel and we'll certainly be back next year.

    Did Not Get A Good Night's Sleep!!!


    Stayed at the Days Inn-Toronto Downtown Novemember 13. On a tour to the Royal Agricultural Fair, our group stayed here, what a mistake! Fire alarms started going off at two A.M. and continued for hours! Our group was staying on the 9th floor and were told by security that the problem was on the 7th and 8th floor and to return to our rooms. Our bus driver, who had lost friends in the Twin Towers refused and spent the rest of the night on the bus. There were many, many students (highschool age) who were running the halls, screaming and there was a lot of underage drinking going on. I suspect that was the cause of the Fire alarms. Now I realize I should have called the police as management seemed to care less about our business and more about keeping the drunk teenagers happy. We packed up and left at 5A.M. as the alarms went off yet again. There are too many other options to stay in Toronto to put up with this kind of service.

    Excellent hotel - all new!


    What a lovely gem of a hotel! My Husband and I recently travelled to Toronto and were quite taken with the Days hotel. They have a new bar called te Beer Cellar which is lovely! Rooms are on the small side but very functional and cheery. The Restaurant (I think it is called Windows) was just perfect for breakfast or dinner. Staff were so friendly and treated us like royalty! We will definitely be returning next year.

    Small rooms, great location


    I have stayed at this hotel several times. I have found the check in and out process painless, friendly staff, clean rooms, secure, reasonable rate secured parking, small fridge in room, small table and two chairs, with comfortable twin double beds. Housekeeping staff was thorough. My only faultfinding issue would be the really small rooms. Plenty of storage space though. Elevators are slow and not too frequent. Super location as far as alcohol/food. entertainment, etc. goes. Quite a bargain for the $$$ as far as I am concerned. "I'll be back" Lucas

    Bed Bugs - Warning!


    Perhaps I could get over the unsanitary conditions, dark halls and rooms so small I thought it must be a joke...No joke - 5X5 rooms! WHAT I COULD NOT GET OVER IS THIS HOTEL'S PROBLEM WITH BED BUGS! My husband and I were there with 2 other couples, three rooms in total. After one night, we were all covered in bites from head to toe! Checked out and moved across the street to the Best Western Primrose. Nice hotel, much larger rooms, friendly staff. Manager at the Days Inn told me this is an ongoing problem they face - BEWARE!

    Days Inn - Toronto Downtown...not a bad value


    My first stay in Canada was at Days Inn - Toronto Downtown...I was impressed with the lobby and the prompt service,and the fact that it is a 23 story Days Inn...the basic room comes with cable TV,hair dryer,mini-fridge,and ample clothing storage space,not loaded with amenities,but still enough for most budget-minded folks...the staff were very professional,and thats wonderful, considering it was about $57(U.S.) per night.I had a very beautiful view of downtown Toronto from my bed.They offer rooms for smokers,but the cigarette smell is a little strong...I think

    Days inn small rooms but good location


    Whenever I travel to toronto I prefer to stay at the days in downtown as it is a at a good central location for the average traveler, good value for a downtown location. The rooms tend to be a bit on the small side compared to standard hotel rooms but they are usually priced substantially less than other rooms in the area.

    In my own case I like the days inn for its price, central location and close proximity to the gay district in Toronto.
