Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Toronto
A very nice hotel
I spent July 2 to July 6 at the Toronto Hilton. It is a great hotel in an excellent area of the city. Close to everything. The room was on the 19th floor, with a partial view of the lake. It was a large room. Nice TV, desk, great bed etc. Bath room was small, with hair dryer, and great hand held shower wand with many different settings for the water. The only minus was that there was some grout around the bath tub which needed to be looked after. Such a minor detraction but yet something that the hotel should pay attention to. I highly recommend this property.
A nice hotel. From the beginning, the service was courteous and professional at the check-in. The lobby was modern, yet comfortable. A very clean look to the lobby with its wood tones and leather couches. Definitely an impressive place to meet up with people.
The much touted Tundra resaurant was ok in my opinion. High ceilings and modern furniture with good food and service. Certainly a nice restaurant, but not a wow-type atmosphere for myself.
The rooms again continued the theme of contemporary furniture with muted colors and clean lines. The rooms were fairly large, and the bathrooms had marble floors and walls, with a great pressure to the water for showers. The maid service was impeccable and accomodating. The beds were comfortable, but not what one would call luxurious.
My wife and I would definitely stay there again, especially at the rate of $120 US per night.
The Hilton was simply just okay. I expected more. When we checked in the front desk people weren't friendly nor helpful. Our room was very average, the bathroom didn't have a fan and the shower leaked all over the floor. Location was great but wasn't impressed-I highly doubt Paris would stay here herself.
Great Breakfast, Modern Accomodations in Toronto
When in town I always opt for the Toronto Hilton. Modern lobby and simple rooms (never overly decorated with godawful flower prints like most large chains). Make sure to secure a breakfast included package as the buffet is quite good. Berries, brioche, juice and fresh eggs aplenty!!! Central location (a step away from Queen Street).
For travellers who cannot afford the sleek Germain or Soho Met, the Hilton will do just fine!
I stayed here twice, one night each. The hotel lobby and rooms are very modern. In the first stay, the a/c wasn't working. I called engineering and they basically said they couldn't do anything about it. The second stay had perfectly working a/c. The excecutive lounge has got to be one of the best for Hiltons. Large pool table, free drinks and booze, and food! Other than the a/c incident, service was excellent. It's in a great location, two blocks away from Eaton Centre and the subway.
Very friendly staff and extremely helpful concierges at the front desk.
Rooms are spacious, and extremely clean.The buffet breakfast is a delight in the Tundra Bar.I recommend this place to anyone visiting Toronto.
I've stayed at this hotel a number of times. It is a fantastic location for getting to downtown attractions/shopping and for the easy accessibility to public transit. The rooms are large, tastefully appointed and comfortable. I stay in a large number of hotels and was extremely disappointed in some of the service I received during my last stay at the Hilton. Housekeeping service was spotty ... glasses on the mini-bar were not clean when I arrived in the room, glasses were not replaced every day, bathtub was not cleaned. Room service: Although the evening waiters were wonderful, the people that answered the phone were less than skilled at their jobs. I have never before returned a room service meal, but had to return 2 of the 4 room service meals I ordered. Staff was unfamiliar with their own menu items and unable to understand special requests. The food from the restaurant Tundra was available through room service and it was outstanding in quality and presentation. In addition, as I try to prepare my expense report for my business trip I find that I am unable to calculate the individual charges on my bill easily because of the way they prepare their statements and summarize taxes at the bottom of the bill rather than attributing the taxes to the individual charges. The billings department has not responded quickly to my request for assistance with this.
Chic, Modern, and Comfortable in the Greatest of Locations!
This fantastic Hilton is in one the best locations in Toronto, especially if just looking to stay over for a few days and take in many of the wonderful sites the city has to offer. Ideally situated between Queen and King St. with their many trendy shops and restaurants nearby the theatre district, and close walking distance (<10 min.) to the CN Tower and Chinatown. The Eaton Centre is accessible via the underground network of shops and food courts directly from the hotel. College St. with its many nightclubs and bars is also a short distance away, and there is subway station across the street to whisk you to some the attractions further away.
At the edge of the financial district, the 32-floor Hilton is modest from the outside. But inside, the lobby is very chic and the service we got was great and attentive - we had to change rooms three times, but the third time was definitely a charm. Staying on the south side of the building, allows one to overlook the theatre district with the lake and the CN tower in the distance. The rooms are good sized, with plenty of room for a crib and all of our son's things (which made our stay all the more comfortable). While the junior suites are quite large and ideally located at the edges of the building offering the best views of the city. The decor is simple and earthtoned, and the bathrooms are nicely done with contrasting tile and stone work.
For first rate style and class the Hilton was a pleasant surprise and I'd definitely stay here again. You just can't be disappointed when staying in the heart of the Toronto, with everything so close and accessible!
A boutique-ish big hotel
The Toronto Hilton is a big (600-room) hotel with a postmodern, boutique hotel feel. The understated lobby looks like the entrance to a modern art museum, with dark woods, metal sculptures and earth tones that scream cooler-than-thou.
The postmodern look continues in the larger-than-average rooms, with the minimalist modern furnishings and earth tones all around. The bathrooms even have the retro-cool sinks. Bathroom amenities were nice, but on my recent
visit (labor day wknd 2002), they didn't include lotion (kind of disappointing). The location is in the middle of the business district amid a forest of skyscrapers but with the typical greenspaces so much a part of Toronto, truly one of the great cities on the continent. Restaurants are
all around, including the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse attached to the hotel. The Osgoode subway station is a block away, giving you quick access to downtown and midtown attractions.
The mammoth Eaton Centre shopping complex and the Goth-Hip Queen Street West neighborhood are a short stroll away.
The Hilton ain't cheap, but it's a good value on weekends. It's a big chain hotel but it's got a good bit of personality.
What you'd expect; with a glossy sheen.
While the structure of the building itself might not be aesthetically pleasing to one's eye, it's the inside that counts. A well designed and immensely spacious lobby greets you. Staff are chipper and eager to assist, and respond well to new visitors.
Hilton rates are generally quite high, but for the $160 CDN a night, the room indeed lived up to my high expectations. This was one of the hippest Hiltons I have stayed at, with stunning photographic artwork hanging from the walls, aerodynamic-shaped desks and chairs, large screen television with the full compliment of movies, internet access, music jukebox and video games!
High Speed internet access was available at a charge of $9.95 a day, which I thought reasonable. I plugged my laptop into the ethernet socket in the desk and downloaded to my heart's content at amazing speeds.
Room service was modest. While the kitchen might not have the best food in the west, the fact that there's a Ruth & Chris Steak House and a Barrister's Pub on the premises makes up for this.
At least there are honest cleaning ladies. I forgetfully left $800 CDN on the desk, with a $50 on the floor. I returned to find the money still there, with the 50 on the desk as well... along with a well cleaned room.
The fitness centre was pitiful, though. Very small room with antique, rusting equipment. The indoor/outdoor heated pool was the only sensible alternative for a workout; it was quite nice too.
Ideal location is probably the major reason why I extended my stay for another week. It's your traditional 4-star, in the heart of Toronto.

Toronto is a bit soulless with a forest of condos. and a neglected opportunity to use the lake side precinct and much of the city life apparently underground to protect the citizens from the harsh winter.
Anyway we met up with Matthew & Christina and had a very nice meal at an Italian restaurant served by the American Airlines nice man's cousin. ...
