... view of the Horseshoe falls. Perfect..there were also items on the menu with vegetables...doubly perfect. We got ourselves comfortable and filled our tummys in prepartion for our late night bus ride. We watched the sun slowly set and with each minute that passed we grew less confident that we would get to witness the falls illuminated as it seemed to be taking a while to go dark. We went back and got our bags and camped ourselves near the bus station so we didnt miss our bus ...
... rides through Megabus.com and made a spontaneous decision to go to Montreal from 3-7 September. We then went on AirBnb.com to see if we could find a suitable accommodation there. We found one which had the most number of positive reviews and was $108 a night. We then decided on it and looked at the vacancies. Our hopes were lost for a while when we saw that the whole month of August was booked. We then looked at September and it too as fully booked ...
... for our food. Jim is having a bacon cheeseburger with fries and I am getting a Greek veggie burger with sweet potato fries. It takes a while but there are lots of people in here; the wait is worth it and we enjoy our food and discuss how we are going to get back to the car which is still in the parkade since this morning. Apparently there is no way to get there with public transportation. We are told it is only a 7 minute walk but I don’t think I ...
Walked to Blue Jay Way to collect hire car & drove to Hamilton went to see the Clays in Ancaster. Spent a couple of hours chatting and catching up. Texted Pete who lives in Hamilton & he said he was in ancaster so we drove to meet him & then went back to his for a BBQ, very nice too. Drove back to Toronto at 10:30. Booked a hire car for Wednesday when we are going to see Barb & John then returning it to the airport on Thursday when we fly home ...
One of the perks of being a solo backpacker is that without anyone else to talk to, you can listen to the absolute drivel other people witter on about. I'm not saying I’m not prone to the odd witter, but there are surely times when it’s best just to put fingers to lips and say 'shut up’ to retain a little sanity.
I’d be lying if I said I was alone when I heard my first monologue of this trip, as I was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Germain Toronto
Attention given to the smallest details.
We recently stayed at Le Germain Hotel in Toronto. We stay in hotels every two months and this is by far our best experience. The hotel is beautiful, relaxing, ultra clean. The beds, pillows and furniture are all a dream. The rooms are very spacious and inviting with attention given to the smallest of details. There is soft lighting every where.
The bathroom and shower were outstanding. Also really appreciated the extra space for luggage and the shelves and drawers everywhere were a big help.The staff was wonderful,breakfast was delicious. We will be staying at this hotel from now on when visiting Toronto and will recommend it to all our friends.
This is my first experience with this kind of hotel. Nice, small, quiet, very modern and sofisticated. Excellent furniture, bedding, radio and TV, toiletries, etc. Ask for a room with the signature shower (it is the one shown in the web site). It is located in the entertainment district, restaurants are plenty and is close to virtually all the theatres in the area. The restaurant in the hotel is open, and to judge by the looks, it must match the rest of the hotel.
A Little Touch Of Montreal
I stayed at The Germain for an all too brief two night stay this past June 2003 and this hotel redefined class in a sleek, modern setting.
From the grand lobby to the attentive front staff to the downtempo electronic music playing in the lobby. The shower itself makes this destination interesting; glass pane overlooking the bed!
The staff and concierge were very helpful with shoping and nighttime suggestions and the complimentary community breakfast was simple yet thoughtful!
After staying at Le Germain for 6 nights, checking out the 2nd January, I can say that I really loved this hotel for so many reasons. Upon arrival the large glass frontage lets you know this will be an experience. The hotel lobby was beautiful and very modern without feeling stark or empty. It was warm and inviting and the staff helpful, but not too in your face. The help yourself when you feel like it coffee machine was very welcome especially when returning late in the evening. The rooms were very well set out with wood and warm natural colours in a modern theme. Having a Bosse radio/CD player was a nice addition, which we found switched on to a Jazz channel at turndown. The bathroom delightful and well sized, was equiped with a large shower (big enough for two) and again simply but well decorated (glass sink, Aveida products, etc.) Everything was very clean and looked new. There was some noise from the surrounding area, but nothing that really disturbed us. (Earplugs are provided if you really feel you need them).
The place to stay when in TO
My wife an I stayed here as a "get away" night in the city. We have travelled fairly extensively, and stay at hotels that are no less than 4 star. I would have to say that Le Germain is at least a 4+ star. No, it is not a Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, or anything of that ilk, but if you want to be pampered in a room that is absolutely beautiful, comfortable and exceedingly stylish, this is the place. Contrary to the comment by one of the last reviewers, the staff were absolutely exemplary in their attention to detail. A great spot - I will recommend this place to any of our friends who come into town.
Really relaxing and very comfortable!
We stayed here for our 20th anniversary,we wanted something that was not just another hotel.We were both delighted with how relaxing it was to stay here.The staff were really nice.The rooms are lovely ,nice and big.The glassed-in Rainfall shower was just great.(My husband is a shower fan and he always judges hotels by their showers)10/10 for this one.We wre not aware of any excess noise from the bars round about.Hotel is in a great location as well!
Being a regular customer of Le Germain Toronto's sister hotel in Montreal, I thought I would be prepared to what I saw when I first went to Le Germain Toronto last week. It was just astonishing; every single detail was thought so customers would be as comfortable (or even more) as they are at home. Le Germain is a new hotel, still under construction, but the staff is just great and very helpful, and you just don't see or notice anything. As for the bars around, I'll admit they are noisy, but there is that charming little box with earplugs in it. Just....perfect.
Looks can be deceiving
Looks nice, but not perfect. Extremely noisy from bars that surround the place. The base from blaring music kept me up all night. Staff seemed disinterested. No restaurant, no room service, no gym... No me next time.
I have a hotel fetish and this is one of two of my favorite places in Toronto. Rooms are soooooo calming, their staff was out of sight out of mind ( that's a good thing). It is truly a very cool place.
Did Not Disappoint
Recently stayed in Toronto and chose Le Germain due to the wonderful experience at its sister hotel in Quebec City. Le Germain has the same charm as the Hotel Dominion but truly has an urban flair. The bar is not yet ready, but I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly.
The rooms were spectacular and it's worth staying there just for the shower. I've never seen anything like it.
We got an amazing rate that included a wonderful breakfast. If you are looking for a boutique hotel that is close to everything, this is the place for you.
