Radisson Suite Hotel Toronto Airport
Travel Blogs from Toronto
Toronto - Toronto is a huge city and very multicultural. Although it was late Saturday night when we arrived, it was the kid's first real experience with snow so RJ had to jump in the icy pile by the hotel front door. On Sunday morning we ventured downtown by taxi (another $50) and were awe inspired by the world's tallest freestanding tower (553. …
... old girl they didn't let wee for half an hour) and was looking at a 5 hour wait at the airport anyway. Unfortunately the flight was delayed due to a broken air-con unit, then I nearly missed re-boarding, then we had to de-plane after the captain informed us "I don't actually know where the mechanics are", then the flight was cancelled, then the next plane was delayed, then storms grounded all the New York-bound air traffic, and after leaving the condo ...
... you can test you skills by hitting five hockey pucks into a goal and also stopping five hockey pucks coming into your goal. I was going to do this, but the line up for both would of easy have been 45mins each. But it was fun to watch little kids to adults having a go at it. As I continued around I found a section that has when all different Courtney's joined the IIHF and Australia joined in 1935-1938 which means I found an Australian ice hockey ...
... for the next 11 hours. Thankfully, after a bit of a hike up escalators and along the second level of a terminal that seemed to stretch on forever, I finally had success. If you didn't know where to look, you'd have trouble finding it. The place is a city in itself, as I was soon to see when we drove out. There are five levels of elevated roadways snaking in all directions! After asking a couple of people, I finally found the luggage storage place tucked away behind some ...

The campus tour my friend is giving me is very entertaining and sweet, I am astonished by the contrast of old and new buildings. Some of the beautiful red brick buildings just have unfitting modern window attachments to them, it is like they clustered ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Suite Hotel Toronto Airport
I stayed at this hotel for over three months and in that time I have had a great experience. The housekeepers are very friendly and the hotel is always extremely clean.
The suites have the great Sleep Number Bed and I have been able to enjoy a much larger room for the price of a regular room that I would get at another hotel.
I would recommend this hotel for any traveller as I travel almost 300 days a year on business and I have rarely stayed in a hotel that offers such great service and standards
(and a Tim Horton's Drive thru right out the front door!)
My wife and I were travelling through the area and liked the option of the suite with the kids. Room was very large with seperate living room and bedroom, seperate vanity area to get ready while leaving the washroom available. Staff were friendly and effiecient. Restaurant in the hotel as well as 6 right outside, great variety. We will stay their again.
Adequate airport hotel
Suites are large and well appointed but a little on the dated side.Good choice of restaurants within walking distance. Staff told us in the evening that the shuttle left at a certain time but in the morning we found that this was wrong and we missed it. Not to worry they said as a taxi is the same $12 for two,but when the taxi came he said it was $15 in very broken English. He then drove us at 140 KM'S to the terminal. Why does the hotel even charge for shuttle service and then not know the times. The staff was somewhat surly as well. We only paid $41 on Priceline so we shouln't complain too much but would choose another hotel next time.
Great clean hotel, close to airport.
I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. We usually book this hotel for the night before our early morning flight goes out the next morning. It saves us on travel time and waking up early.
There is a shuttle or taxi that get you to the airport fast.
Great Staff, Great location.
Booked the hotel through Priceline ($40usd).
Stayed at this hotel recently.
We were initially attracted by the low price, but pleasantly surprised to find an above average property.
All the rooms are suites, well appointed and maintained.
All sorts of great eating establishments outside the front door.
We will definately return.
Convenient to airport
Stayed here for one night because we had to drop friends off for an 8am international flight the next morning. Used an Internet service to book the room which was very reasonably priced for four people in a suite-room. Staff was friendly enough and we had no problems with the room. We weren't asked to pay for parking. Breakfast wasn't included with our room so I can't rate it either way.
Probably wouldn't stay here unless I needed airport access since it's too far from everything except the airport. And it's right on the flight path so jets will be coming right overhead by 6am. But if I needed something close to the airport, I'd stay there again.
Booked at the last minute, seemed like a really nice place from the pics. The room was a little smaller than the pictures showed but still a comfortable size for 2 people. The room was fine, but it was other things that annoyed me. You had to pay 8 to park in the parking lot! The complimentary breakfast was sitdown only in the dining room and you had to pay tip and the hot breakfast was 6.00 more. There was no color printer in the room like stated in the ad. They gave you a coffee packet and two bottles of water, but if you wanted any more of either you had to pay. I paid 90 for the room and it seemed like they were trying to get you to pay for everything else too, it just got annoying, i mean i could see if the hotel was in downtown toronto or something, but it is near an airport in the middle of a plaza with other hotels and stuff, not anything special. The complimentary internet access was nice, but i wouldent stay here again for 90 bucks.
The constant jet airplanes landing and taking off flying 10 feet above your room is a big negative. The noise from the jet engines landing at the airport next door make it impossible to sleep during the day. The jet traffic slows down or stops between 10pm-6am, but if you're not awake by 6am, you will be!! (Even on the weekend.)
Good Place to Stay
1. Nice large clean suites.
2. Friendly staff
3. Close to many eating establishments.
4. 15th and 16th floors dedicated to the Business Traveller.
5. A very good Continental Breakfast - self serve in a separate dining area for the Business traveller.
Do not try to make the left turn out to Dixon Road during rush hour!! Make a right turn at the restaurants and drive through their parking area and come out on the other side (by the expo center) and you have a traffic light to make the left.
