Well, I'm having my last "empty nest" breakfast, and off to the airport to start this crazy trip!
I'm packed. I packed and repacked a couple of times over the last two days, and I'm down to one carryon bag and a bag that qualifies as a "personal item", lol. I'm shipping a small box of gifts and camping gear ahead of me for when I'm in …
... the largest city he has ever seen. No parking near the Hall of Fame...so we think. The owner of a bar next to the HHF sees the bike and jumps onto the side walk. "Hey, park right over there near that fire hydrate. The mayor of Toronto is encouraging green so motorcyles can park anywhere downtown for free". And there you have it, we park next to the HHF pay our $17.50 each and step into the world of hockey. Pretty cool. Sara ...
When we booked this tour, almost a year ago, it seemed so far away.
As time passed my interest and excitement has increased albeit somewhat sporadically.
About a month ago it finally sunk in and I began to do some research- the sights, attractions, hotels, itinery, etc, etc
A few days ago the suitcases made it up to the spare bedroom. After a couple of "dry runs" they are almost packed but more than likely there will be a few last minute additions and ...
... then Mariel drove us both to Pearson International Airport in Toronto. As we were all checking-in our luggage we wondered why the hell we decided to use backpacks instead of suitcases. Since most of the places we are staying over our 4-week trip are hotels, suitcases probably would have been way easier to pack and more comfortable to transport. Amateur mistake #1? Lavi and I decided that the best way to pass the 12hrs on our first ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Delta London Armouries
My wife and I visited London for the first time. We drove over from Detroit in about 2.5 hours. The Delta was pretty easy to locate and indeed it looks like a castle/armory on a portion of the exterior. They treated us great! We stayed in one of the premier rooms, not a suite with Jacuzzi. Rather, in one of the top floors and it was fine. The hotel was clean and neat. I mention clean because my wife is very picky about the place being clean. She will not relax if the place seems musty or rundown, etc. The Delta London is clean. There were a few families around and I wouldn't have a problem coming back with our kids in the future. The guys working as bell boys, doormen, etc. were friendly and very helpful. We used the exercise facilities, which were a treadmill, eliptical, stationary bike, and weights while we were there. It was enough for us. The pool area was nice also. We ate in the hotel once and the food was fine. We did some walking around town and had some meals at places recommended close by. All were fine. I would stay there and recommend it again.
This hotel is not suited for anyone travelling with an elderly person or anyone who is susceptible to bronchitis. They do not have heat turned on in the summer and consider september to be included as a summer month. My father was freezing during the entire stay and had to sit by a portable heater that was brought up to the room. Then the fuse blew at 11:50 at night and they could not repair it. The fuse blew by turning on the coffee pot. Apparently the fuse box was in someone else's room and we were told we could move to another room to sleep while leaving our belongings behind in the previous room. Considering we were leaving that morning at 5:00, this was not an option. Security brought us up a very tiny flashlight to gather our belongings and there was not one offer of help! Can you envision yourself moving at one in the morning and still have to pack! Stress level reached maximum. I do have one good thing to say about this hotel and that is directed towards the valet service and bellmen. They are the very best, kind and courteous and deserve a little extra appreciation.
Excellent Hotel for the price!!!!
This was an excellent find. I recomend this hotel. The staff was well trained and very willing to make our stay an excellent experience. We had a small problem. The internet did not work in our room and the hotel was never able to correct this problem. But not for lack of effort. Finally they gave me a discount on my stay which was satisfactory to me. The Doormen were the best. Specially Willin. Willin is the best door man I ever had. This young man is certainly in the right field of work. Just an excellent place!!!!
We went to the Delta London Armouries last weekend and had a wonderful family trip! Everyone we met working in the hotel was so friendly!! This was by far the friendliest staff we've encountered in our travels! They have a great wading pool for the little kiddies, it's small and perfect for non-swimmers - the water goes up to their waist or so (on our 4 year old!) and allows them to splash and play with other kids without worrying about the depth! Also, they have a great indoor playground with a full-size climber, basketball net, play houses, and many, many toys! During specific times, you can leave your child there for an hour to be supervised to make crafts, play video games, etc.. in their craft room! We really enjoyed our visit, the kids (ages 4 and 2) had a great time! They especially liked their welcome goodie bag filled with toys and colouring books, and we also liked that they ate free in the dining room! This is a great value for the $$ also - clean rooms - we stayed in a Premier room which was recently renovated, had great amenities, was very clean, and we got a great rate by booking on the Delta website - you have to look for the internet only rate - you'll save $20.00! Hope this helps! We'll go again!
Several months before a family wedding I made a reservation backed up by my credit card at the Delta London Armouries for Saturday May 28 2005. On the Thurday before the wedding I called the reservations desk at the hotel to be sure that my reservation was being honoured. I was assured that it was and furthermore if my party arrived before the rooms were ready accommodation would be made available for us to change and shower before the wedding. When I arrived to check in on Saturday May 28 I was informed that my reservations had been cancelled and no rooms were available. The mamager was adamant that no rooms were available and that I would have to seek accommodation elsewhere. I have always felt that a guaranteed reservation backed by a credit card was a commitment by the hotel, apparently not so a this establishment.
Fantastic Accomodations in London
Stayed here mid-March 2005 to visit with family who were in town for the weekend. We had a beautifully appointed king size bed with lounge chair and small sofa in room, lg bathroom, and a nice view. The location of the hotel is excellent in downtown London and the lobby and restaurant are impressive combining the old armoury building with the newer tower. We had other family members staying at the Hilton (right across the street) as well and their room was much more dated and in need of a reno in comparison with our beautiful furnishings. While we did not eat in the hotel other friends did and they said the food was very good. Will definitely stay at this hotelif in the London area again.
Great hotel,service and restaurant were terrific! Highly recommended
We stayed at the London Armouries in early June, what a great place! The combination of the older stone architecture and the newer tower section works better than one would expect. Our premier room in the tower was nicely decorated. Very large marble bath included a huge tub and lighted make-up mirror. The staff was outstanding, when visiting friends had car trouble and no available rooms at the Armouries the front desk called neighboring hotels and found a room for them. Now looking for a reason to go back!
Lock me up
The Delta Armouries are beautiful. The new architecture works well with the old Armouries. The service was great. And you're right downtown.
Pool is somewhat small but was sufficient for the 11 girls from our basketball team to still have a lot of fun. Couldn't think of nicer place to be in London.
Really if you want the best in London, it's the Armouries. You will know you have arrived when you see it. The original Armouries of London was renovated with a glass tower blasting out of the old castle like building. Inside they pay attention to all details. The rooms are well appointed and if you want a suite, it's worth the extra $. There is even a party room where you can bring a bunch of kids to stay overnight in sleeping bags. Indoor pool is an escape. Over looked by exercise equipment. Also a kids play room for parents to take a break while the kids play. Don't miss the food. It lives up to the high standard of the Delta Chain. Excellent. The Delta Armouries is a landmark in London and Londoners go there to have a break. Somethimes staying over night or just for dinner.
