Niagara Falls

A travel blog entry by suzhu

We hopped on the tram to downtown to make our way to the Hard Rock Cafe where we would be getting on our bus tour to Niagara Falls. On the way, we picked up breakfast at Starbucks. When we arrived at the meeting point, it turned out that anything other than water was forbidden on the mini-bus so we promptly gulped down/threw away our breakfasts and …

Greenwood, downtown

A travel blog entry by suzhu

We had an early-ish breakfast at the hotel's cafe, which had a bemusing and amusing light installation comprising bicycle parts. David had a cooked breakfast (we still can't get used to having chips with breakfast; it's just wrong), whilst I had freshly-made blueberry scones and whipped butter (odd) and vanilla mascarpone (delish). The tea was …

George Clooney would be proud of us (cf. Up In The Air): David had downloaded the BA app to my iPhone so I had been able to check in and download an e-boarding pass at the click of a button. We arrived at Heathrow Terminal 5, headed straight to the bag drop queue to drop off one small suitcase each, flashed our iPhones with our e-boarding passes on …

Having experienced the pleasures of the new Hong Kong airport with all its technological wizardry, as well as its frighteningly polite and helpful airport agents, I must say that I am quite disappointed with Toronto's airport. Arriving in Toronto reminded me of arriving in Hong Kong's old airport....which, for all of you who don't know, was once …

It was strange seeing the number of high school and university aged fans who were probably about the age I started. Also listening to how much they thought they knew about the original series as most joined with the new series.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Drake Hotel Toronto

    Fantastisch- Service, Essen, Unterkunft

    from

    Wir hatten unsere Familien Hochzeitsfeier und waren 2 Nächte im Drake und hatten dann noch eine größere Feier in "The Great Hall" gegenüber vom Drake. Das Drake war wie ein zuhause weg vom zuhause. Fantastischer Service, Essen, und Unterkünfte, die uns eine ausgezeichnete Hochzeit bescherten.

    Wir können es allen, die eine klasse Hochzeit oder Familienfeier planen, nur empfehlen. Vielen Dank an das Personal und die Inhaber des Drake Hotels. Mozes family Ottawa, Toronto, London (UK)

    Richtig cooles Hotel!!! Komme sicher wieder.

    from

    Ich war auf Geschäftsreise für 3 Nächte im Drake. Ich reise oft allein und habe die Nase voll von karakterlosen, großen Geschäftshotels... dieses gehört NICHT dazu. Es ist jung, energiegeladen und voller cooler (und gut aussehender) Leute. Die Zimmer sind klasse. Ich war in einem Crash Pad, das kompakt ist aber auch mit viel Überlegung und Stil designt ist !!! Ein wirklich cooles Zimmer. Mit den Bars und Restaurants im Hotel kann man einfach runtergehen und einen schönen Abend verleben und danach gleich wieder im Zimmer sein. Nicht hier buchen, wenn man es ruhig und friedlich mag. Oder wenn man eine junge Familie hat. Aber für einen Einzelreisenden so wie mich und jemanden, der gerne Leben um sich hat, ist es das perfekte Hotel!

    It's OK, but

    from

    Modern rooms, but no elevator and nobody to help with the luggage. I have bad knees (blew out the ACL in both knees) and our room was on the 3rd floor. Ouch.

    When we got there the in-room internet wasn't working, the wi-fi wasn't working, and they weren't answering their phone. Had to walk down the flights of stairs again to find someone - anyone - who could help. Eventually a very nice guy figured out their problems and restarted the internet.

    There was no chair in the room - made it a bit less than comfortable. TV was nice, though.

    X[OH!] DRAKE

    The Best Place to be in Toronto

    from

    I've made the Drake hotel a regular hangout now for me.

    From the first night my friends and I decided to stop in, we were greeted at the door by very cool doormen. No attitude from these guys what-so-ever.. That's what makes you remember your "fun night out with friends".

    I've travelled quite bit and stayed in a lot of major cities in the world. This is the hands down best hangout I've been in.

    All sorts of different people.. As I said no attitude from their staff.

    I totally recommend the Drake if you are looking for a hotel that has it all - great rooms, food, drinks and nightlife.

    Very cool hotel !!! Would def. stay here again.

    from

    I stayed at the Drake for 3 nights on a business trip. I travel alone quite a lot and am so bored of characterles big business hotels....this is NOT one of them.

    It's young, buzzy, hip and full of cool (very attaractive) people.

    The rooms are great. I stayed in a Crash Pad and whilest it is compact it's also be deisgned with a lot of thought and style!! A really cool room.

    With bars and restaurants in the hotel you can just go downstairs have and great ngiht out and come back up to your room.

    Don't stay here if you like peace and quiet. Nor should you choose to stay here if you have a young family. But for a lone traveller like myself and soemone who likes to know there is life going on around me, this was the perfect hotel for me!

    Fantastic-service, food, accommodations

    from

    We had our family wedding reception and we stayed 2 nights at the Drake and then we had a larger reception at "The Great Hall" across the street from the Drake. The Drake gaves us a home away from with fantastic service, food and accommodations which help to give us an excellent wedding. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a great wedding or family re-union. Thanks so much to staff and owners of the Drake Hotel. Mozes family Ottawa, Toronto, London (UK)

    Avoid Room 203 at any cost! Not a Family Hotel!!!

    from

    I just stayed at the Drake for ONE night, Monday 5/16/05 for a business trip. First of all: this is an interesting hotel as its rooms are very modern and the amenities are nice. However, please note: this hotel is also home to three VERY active night spots which are booked solid, each with separate bands/events, almost every night if the calendars they publish are correct.

    Great & Cleverly Designed Rooms

    from

    While the website is a little kooky and odd to navigate, the hotel itself is a gem. In a neighborhood-in-transition (i.e. it's in the process of being gentrified by artists). The hotel itself doesn't look like too much from the outside but inside the owners have put thought and care into all the different and unique design touches. The cafe and restaurant are great and very relaxed. The rooms are unlike any I have ever seen before. Very small but efficiently designed with high end elements and unique design. Plasma TV and incredible bed. As good as any high end boutique, art-centric hotel you would find in NYC for two-to-three times the price.

    Works for me

    from

    Toronto has been lagging in the area of cool hotels for years, so when the Drake opened I was excited. I just want to let people know, this hotel is not a generic Standard or W style hotel. It is chill and unique with lots of boho influence, as well as being quite affordable. Some uptight white collar types might not get it, as it is casual but cool. For those that do get it, the personal touches (handwritten welcome etc) and the cool but friendly staff will make you very happy. Almost every time I've stayed there, the owner has been around, which helps with the uniqueness of the experience. The rooms are exactly as the web site describes them...no surprises. The bars and lounges are great, but as with most urban centres, I would avoid the weekend bar crowd, as the suburbanites invade the coolness, trying to celeb spot. The hotel and it's lounges are happening, so if you want a quiet getaway this is not the place. You are on your own with parking and it is still a pretty sketchy neighbourhood, so leave nothing in your car that can get stolen. I will stay there again on my next visit as I find it fun and welcoming, with a great dose of authenticity.

    Incredible!

    from

    I had a good feeling that his place was going to be fantastic from the moment I walked in and received a most courteous welcome from the staff.
