Historical Traveler Reviews SoHo Metropolitan Toronto
Absolutely fantastic hotel. Spent June 9-13 there. From the time I made an on-line reservation, the staff was helpful and very accommodating. The furnishings are sleek and modern; the bed comfortable and outfitted with beautiful linens. The bathroom is amazing - heated floor, glass enclosed shower, a tub large enough to actually enjoy a bath in, great lighting. The closet area in the luxury room is something I'd like to have in my own house - natural wood, beautiful built-ins. The location is ideal - in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District - so it's great for restaurants and theatre. Need tickets? The concierge is very helpful. I would definitely stay at the Soho Met again. The only odd thing is a warning about suffocation on the door of the very tiny in-room safe.
The Soho Met is an beautiful new hotel. The staff was extremely attentive to detail. Our room (Deluxe) had a comfortable king size bed, nice linens. Cable TV with nearly 70 channels, DVD player, free internet access. A limited selection of complementary DVDs were available to guests free of charge. The bathroom was the nicest I have ever seen in a hotel, it was about as big as the sleeping area and had a glass walk-in shower, large separate tub, heated floors, nice toileteries, bathrobes, etc. The hotel also included a business center. A fitness center, pool and spa were shared with condos in the complex. The hotel had an onsite restaurant, lounge and separate breakfast area. The surrounding area is the entertainment district with several restaurants, bars, comedy clubs, etc. We would definitely stay at the Soho Met again.
Terrific Boutique Hotel - Highly recommended
We stayed at the Soho on a recent trip to Toronto and we were very impressed with this small, classy "boutique" hotel in the heart of the entertainment district. The hotel's design is brand new - modern but not stark. The rooms are exceptional - spacious, terrific king size beds and soft linens, awesome bathrooms, large dressing area and extra spiffy automatic controls for the drapes, Do Not Disturb, and lights at bedside. The SoHo is a great place for a romantic getaway. The access to the Senses Bakery is the first bonus - great breakfast, light snacks and wonderful desserts. The access to Senses restaurant is the second bigger bonus. One of the better restaurants in the city, Senses has an amazing asian/fusion tasting menu with the one of the best (and most generous) wine tasting pairings ever. Try the appetizers in the bar. And finally, the staff. Exceptional! The front desk staff were very accommodating. The doorman/valet/concierge (not entirely sure which of these titles applied but he seemed to do it all) we encountered most days was a notably charming, pleasant, and helpful fellow and one of the best and nicest hotel staff members we've encountered in years of travelling. The SoHo is a great hotel and a wonderful alternative to the many larger and less personable hotels in Toronto. We will return.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a celebration weekend and really loved it. request a luxury room facing blue jays way-our room was at least 600 sq ft & had a couch, the heated bathroom floor was such a nice touch, the bathrobes were frette and the food was great. I have stayed at the royal york, king edward, four seasons, cambridge suites, westin harbour castle, park hyatt and hilton and the soho met was the nicest room by far. worth every penny.
Best hotel in the city!
This was a fantastic hotel on all counts! LOVED the marble bathroom- heated floors and all! Great location, super clean and chic, friendly staff, great room! I suggest booking through Expedia as their rates were much lower than any others I found.
The place to be!
My boyfriend and I spent two nights at Soho Metropolitan Jan 30 though Feb 1, 2004. The hotel is absolutely amazing. We had a luxury room booked through Expedia and it was a brand new upscale, spacious room.
The bathrooms are to die... The heated granite floors were god sent especially in the sub-freezing temperatures outside. The hotel boasts an indoor pool, jacuzzi, steam room and a healthclub. After a day of sightseeing, it was a great way to spend a hour relaxing in the hot tub and steam room. I highly recommend this hotel for the people in the know. The restaurant, Senses, was excellent - as was the attentive, resourcefull concierge & frontdesk. The got us last minute reservations at a restaurant which was otherwise fully-booked and gladly let us check out at 3pm. I visited the other hotels including Fairmont and Four Seasons in the city and will definately stay at the Soho Metropolitan when I am back in the city in two weeks. NO COMPARISON.
Loved the Omni
We've become obsessed with boutique hotels, so we do have a point of reference from which to write this review. We stayed at the Soho in April 2003. We knew it wasn't quite open for business (no restaurant/bar), but we wanted to have an early look.
First of all, the bathrooms are the best we've seen. Staying in a luxury-class room, the bathrooms were enormous, and completely finished with marble. The roman bath tub was the largest that we have seen in a hotel, and the heated floors were fantastic. We also enjoyed being able to listen to the TV/radio while sitting "on the can" thanks to the speaker directly above the toilet.
We weren't overly impressed with the rest of the hotel. The room is a nice size, and it's clean and modern, but it's just a little too sparse, even by boutique standards. The staff are nice, but we found the full "introduction to the room" (a guide to using the blinds, heater, etc.) somewhat annoying.
Overall, the Soho is nice, but the best boutique in Toronto would still have to be Le Germain.
Adventures at the Soho Metropolitan
I stayed at the Soho Metropolitan this past weekend. As far as I know, the hotel itself is very new ( approximately 4 months old), however, the staff upheld a very professional nature and the atmosphere was soft and relaxing. I entiltled this review as "adventures at the Soho..." due to a small incident that occured during my last night at the hotel.
As I was talking a shower in my luxurious bathroom...the fire alarm went off in the hotel. I got myself dressed and ready to leave as fast as I could when someone from the concierge desk running down the hall quickly stated that it was just a false alarm and for all guests to please stay in their rooms. Needless to say, the alarm went off for a good half hour, and emergency crews were called to the scene. I still am not aware as to what caused the incident, however, it did create quite a stir. I suppose that there is always room for a little excitement. If nothing else...I'll always remember my experience at the grand hotel Soho Metropolitan....
Beautifully done. The rooms are trendy....loved the heated floors in the bathroom. Concierge is helpful and informative. If you get a chance book a dinner at Senses.....the food is a work of art. Every detail is paid attention to. Great location as well.
From Picture to Perfect Reality
The experience at this new addition to the Toronto Tourism industry, sets it apart in service as well as the features and care with which they extend themselves towards their guests.My guest room was perfect. From the heated marble bathroom floors to the smart set features in my room (electronically operated drapes, door bell, etc), i was simply in awe. The queen size beds and linen was a great touch of comfort, as well as the entire decor of the room itself. Apart from the amenities of the room, the personal service that is provided-adds a special touch. I was escorted to my room, and given a tour and explanation of each feature as well as remembered by name as i walked through the lobby as well as the entire hotel. Great pastries. Great people. All done with such style.
