We headed into Toronto today and when we came down expecting to see a shuttle bus pick us up and take us to Toronto the surprise was on us as this Black dark window'd car showed up and the Driver came in, in a suit and tie and asked for us and another lady so there were 3 of us in a Car heading to Toronto.

The DDI meeting and IASSIST conference were held at the University of Toronto. The buildings in this area are quite beautiful. The Graduate Ceremony was on at the university, so there were loads of people streaming to the ceremony, and lots of picnics occurring in the ...
Waiting to check in for our flight was the first reality check for us. Standing there, we found ourselves to be the only North Americans and the only ones to speak English. Even our gate attendants spoke broken and barely understandable English. Our flight from Toronto to Beijing was relatively uneventful. A couple movies, a game of checkers and a nap, 12 hours later ...
... bottom floor right about the Ripley's aquarium and stood on that freaky thing for a while. Next stop was to watch a 3d movie about the making and inspiration behind the Boeing 787 dreamliner. What this had to do with the CN tower, or even Canada in general, I don't know. The movie was pretty silly, but the 3d wasn't badly done. Final activity in the tower was the simulator which was a movie about this fake hybrid tree that some fake scientists bred and it is ...
... with no daylight, few landmarks or concept of which direction one is walking is another matter!! Of course no trip to Toronto would be complete without the short trip to Niagara. With a detour to a vineyard for wine-tasting along the way, I was able to try ice wine for the very first time. This wine, made from grapes that have been naturally frozen by the winter and remain frozen on the vines for almost a week. The result is an extremely sweet dessert wine - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Toronto
Great hotel, great location
Stayed here for three nights. Room was quiet and very comfortable, and a very good price. The location is excellent - we walked everywhere downtown, it's close to everything. Buffet breakfast is average, but service is pleasant and helpful. Had room service too, this was only average, but there are two or three excellent restaurants across the street, and a Tim Horton's a few steps away, so you are well equipped.
Great Hotel in Great Location
We arrived (after our flight from the UK had been delayed for 9 hours) about 1am local time. Went to bed. Less than 2 hours later, the fire alarm went off and we have to evacuate the hotel. This was not a promising start.
However, this IS a great hotel and its in a fantastic location at the heart of the "entertainment district". I'd recommend it without hesitation. The buffet breakfast is, distinctly average.
My husband just came home from a two night stay at this hotel. We loved the location to the theaters and restaurants that we were going to. The staff went out of their way to make our stay nice. We were celebrating our anniversary and they sent a box of chocolates up to our room. The rooms were spacious and we had a lovely view from the 18th floor of the CN tower and the skydome. We were overlooking King Street which is where you want to be or else you're looking the parking lot. We had asked for a king size bed, but they upgraded us to the room with a view which we preferred. The cons are: When we called we were told because we were priority club members we could check in at 9am. our room wasn't ready until after 4pm (we got in at 11am so couldn't change or anything). The restaurant is terrible. The breakfast buffet was disgusting, food was cold and not fresh and the service to get a beverage was not good--we had to wait forever!! There was dirt in our bathroom when we checked in, but they quickly sent someone up to clean it.
This hotel was fresh and very clean. Staff were so friendly and really seemed to enjoy their jobs. It was a great part of our family vacation. The location is perfect to see lots of downtown attractions. All within walking distance. Our room had an excellent view of the CN tower and Skydome and I booked everything online. We enjoyed the intimate cigar bar although the cigar prices are high. We would stay here again.
We stayed at this hotel while touring Canada in June. The hotel was really clean and comfortable. The outdoor pool area, while fairly small, was a pleasant area in which to spend a while relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The location of the hotel is good.... the CN tower and nearest subway station are both a short walk away. There are plenty of restaurants close by and the area felt safe to walk in even after dark. The airport express bus service dropped us off right at the hotel and was a good, reliable way of getting to and from the airport. As an aside.... if you are planning on visiting Niagara Falls while in Toronto we found that it was much cheaper to take a regular coach to Niagara Falls rather than taking a guided bus tour. When you get there everything is within easy walking distance so you don't need a tour bus to get you around.
A classic Holiday Inn...good value
Not the bad experience expected from the most recent post. A good mid-price, family/business hotel. Rooms were very "70's" in feel, clean and reasonably sized. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Selection of restaurants just across the street was great. Dinner at the Nawlins Jazz Bar on King was a nice surprise. Would stay again...
I did "IT TIME FOR A LITTLE T.O" package and everything o.k. except the hotel. I pick the Holiday Inn on The King. I got into the room to fine no soap, shampoo. The bathtub was real dirty with other peoples hair in it. Toliet had pee in it. I went to get ice and I found out there was vomit in it. So I went back to my room and told guest service. They said " We will be up and clean the room" I went out and found that just the bath room was clean. Still no soap etc. So I phone again they brought everything I needed. They also informed me there was no fridge or bath robes whick I ask for ahead. The towel were dirty. I selpt there in a bed that smell like sour milk. After that I checked out there were many mistake on my bill. They fixed and didnt say sorry for what happen to me. Stay at the SkyDome hotel a mush better hotel for your buck.
We must have stayed there 8 times in the past year, and they all have been the best experiences. Great staff, great rooms!
We found this hotel to be just wonderful! The entrance hall was elegant, the room spacious, and everything was meticulously clean! The hotel staff were super friendly and the consierge was fabulous! We got excellent directions to attractions, places to walk our dog, and they even helped us plan our driving route to our next destination! We also found this hotel to be so pet friendly! I would recommend it 100% for any dog owners looking for a great hotel in downtown Toronto! The staff was so friendly in asking how our dog was doing on a daily basis and we were given a bag of doggy treats as well! You are allowed to leave your dog unattended in your room and the hotel even provides signs for your door "pet inside". For a downtown location there was considerable amount of green space to walk our dog (though not right around the hotel, we did have to walk a ways). We booked our reservation online, which is cheaper than booking over the phone and everything went smoothly with that, even with having a dog and writing that in the special instruction section online. We really were impressed and happy with this hotel and are definitely coming back again!
If you reserve a room at the Holiday Inn on King using their online reservation option, watch out for the "View of CN Tower, Skydome, and Lake Ontario" note in the room description. Our room featured a good view of a parking lot, and if you pressed your face against the window and looked to the right, you could see the CN Tower. The Skydome was nowhere in sight, and given the number of tall buildings nearby I doubt if we would have been able to see the lake from our floor even if the room had been facing in another direction. If views are important to you, make your reservation by phone and ask questions about what you'll be getting! That being said, our room was very clean, quiet, spacious, and comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient. The food in the restaurant is better than average for a hotel of this type, though unremarkable, and the service there was excellent. Still, there are so many good restaurants nearby (try Alice Fazooli's!) that you probably won't want to eat in. The rooftop pool is great, sparkling clean and well-maintained. A little on the small side, but it was never crowded during our stay. The hotel itself is in a good location, within walking distance of shops, shows, gardens, and other attractions. If you're in town for a convention, it's just a short walk to the convention centre.
