... at 5pm which was right in the middle of rush hour so traffic was horrendous but Silke did a good job of getting us to the hotel. It was 32 degrees and very humid which hopefully wont last, a thunderstorm helped clear some of the air. It reminds me a bit of Miami, very flat, hot and tons of traffic It does seem to be the land of the upgrade though. The rental company upgraded our car to a ...
... leg of our flight was stand by from Calgary to Toronto but then we had booked confirmed from Toronto through Amsterdam to London. Because this wasn't technically a 'connecting' flight from Calgary to Toronto, we had to wait and collect our luggage and then go to the side of the terminal to get our luggage re-checked in. The flight to Toronto was nerve racking and we came up with a plan. I'd get off the plane first, rush over to the check-in counter ...

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.
Good sized room, nice suite, clean hotel.
Booked the hotel through Priceline ($40usd).
The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. When checking in, I requested 2 beds and they accomodated that request.
The suite was large with a separate bedroom. They offer free wireless internet service.
The air conditioning unit was loud but we thought maybe it was to block out the sounds of the aircraft. This is an airport hotel, so you do have planes flying directly overhead, although we did not find the noise a problem.
The hotel charges for parking, $8/night. They also do not have their own shuttle to the airport and rely on another service which charges $6 each way to/from the airport. This service was effective and runs every 30 mins, including early morning hours (4:40am).
The hotel is easy access to the main highway system and the airport.
Overall, this is a great hotel. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. There are several restraunts/convenience stores within walking distance, including a Tim Hortons next door to the hotel, easy to grab a quick breakfast.
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.
Not as great as expected
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.
Loud jet airplanes
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.)
I stayed at this hotel the weekend of August 27-29. 2004 for $45 US per night thanks to BFT and Priceline. The parking was FREE, even though the website said $8 Canadian.
We checked in just after midnight.
All the rooms are "suites", which means you get two rooms/beds for the price of one. This is nice when your travel partner snores , or you just like privacy. We had one queen size bed in the bedroom, and a pull out "double" from the sofa bed in the main room.
The Air Conditioning worked very well but was very loud. The room was clean, with the exception of a long black hair in the bath tub when we arrived and on the towel (the second day), which probably came from the cleaning staff. There were minor dried urine spots on the under side of the toilet seat
The cleaning staff did obey the "do-not-disturb" signs which is very nice if you're sleeping into the afternoon; however, they did ring our telephone at 3pm to let us know that 4pm was the deadline for cleaning the room.
The hotel was nice to let us check out at 1pm.
The shower head was removable (unlike the shower heads at Days Inn Downtown Toronto which are cemented) so we could use our own shower head which we brought; however, the water pressure in the sink was very poor. The hotel shower head had a water saver in it, so we were glad we brought our own shower head considering the sink water pressure was so poor.
Our room had a fridge with snacks/pop/alcohol to purchase. All the hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. They never mentioned Priceline. The bellman offered to wrap out luggage in plastic and tape it since it was raining.
24 hour Tim Hortons right outside the hotel is very nice, but they don't accept credit card. We ate at Kelseys outside the hotel, and got food poisoning.
I would only recommend this hotel if you will be awake by 6am, and if you don't mind being a full 30 minutes from downtown Toronto, if not longer with weekend traffic/rush hour.
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.
