One hour to landing in Ireland then a long day of travel to reach Salisbury. So Air Canada has managed to hit strike three being poor service, bad food and no in-flight entertainment. I settle in to my extra leg room seat which is facing a bulk head. I search the walls and ceilings for monitors for in-flight entertainment and find none. Shortly after takeoff ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cosmopolitan Hotel Toronto
Nice View, Great Price.
This place could be a nice hotel in the future but they do have a few things to work on. Check in staff wasn't all that friendly or helpful.
My room was a one bed room suite on the 23rd floor and wasn't at all small it was pretty large and had a great view of the lake and downtown Toronto. I did enjoy the two LCD TV's in the room but only had one remote for two TV's. My room also had a small bathroom with a glass shower but no tub. The step out balcony was way to small to sit out on just stand. The sofa sure looks nice but was really unconfortable to sit on. The room could use a few more chairs.
When i was checking out the front desk staff was a lot more friendly and the door man help me with my bags.
I would try this hotel again when it's fully open as long as they keep the rates down.
It might be just me, but this place is nothing special.
The beds are terribly hard and aweful to sleep on and I found the so-called "suite" to be tiny - practically the size of a room at the Delta Chelsea. There was left over coffee ground in my coffee maker and coffee stains on the kitchenette counter. Also, the floors are wood and showed hairs & dust, etc.
For some reason there were 5+ employees in the lobby chatting (and what looked like trying to get organized?) in the maybe 200sf that they have for their lobby!
Also, there is no pool and the restaurant is not open yet.
I like the SOHO or Hyatt a lot better.
Uniquely Styled Hotel
We stayed here for our anniversary recently and we enjoyed it. It is a very stylish and uniquely designed hotel. Being a new hotel, we didn't know what to expect, but the location and photos from their website made it look interesting, so we thought we would try it.
The hotel staff is great and accomodating, the buffet is the typical continental buffet, and the atmosphere is calming. The location puts you very close to a lot of restaurants, stores, and the subway.
A couple of ambulances went by, but it was not enough of a bother for either of us. Also the view we had was not the greatest, but that's what blinds are for. We would definitely stay here again.
Nice hotel, but a little hard to find.
Decent room, good location. Very helpful front desk staff.
A couple of minor issues: but all in all, a good hotel with potential once the growing pains are ironed out.
Blinds in the rooms need to be changed, they don't go all the way down.
Too many staff using the elevators, so there was a long wait everytime I went up or down.
Breakfast room is very small, it's going to be a nightmare at 100% occupancy.
But I would stay there again.
Close to great
My wife and I stayed at the hotel from 6/25-6/27 and for the most part we were quite happy about our stay. A few things were off (which may be expected at a hotel that hasn't officially opened--but we did not know that the hotel is running a 'soft-opening' until September from their website or phone call when i reserved). It was only from the front-desk did we learn this.
The curtain to the terrace did not have a string to pull it up or down---because it was all the way down, the light in the living room was muted. Also a lighting fixture in our bathroom was dangerously dangling next to the mirror. The bathroom has woeful space for hanging things (as does the bedroom). The front desk staff seemed not too terribly concerned about these matters. Also, no regular coffee in the room and that issue occurred both days of our stay (the 2nd day, the caffeinated coffee was brought up immediately. The first day it took about 20 minutes). Not crazy about the air-purifier which was the 'ionizer' from sharper image which was a surprising choice (if you want to read the entire story about why it is not effective and might even be harmful to you google "sharper image ionizer consumer union settlement"). If they truly want to purify the air they should get the best--or at least something proven effective.
On the plus side, it was a welcoming, open space and the shower was amazing. Fantastic to have a washer dryer in the unit and the location of the hotel is very convenient as it is in the heart of downtown close to cool shops and transportation hubs.
Because it hasn't officially opened yet the price is fantastic too.
In spite of my displeasure at some things, this is going to be a terrific hotel.

Fabulous new hotel
What a fabulous new hotel.! They've thought of everything, right down to the place settings and candel holders for that romantic meal! Staff are wonderful, friendly and very helpful. I will definetley be back and recommend this hotel to all my friends. This hotel is a different experience, even to my Husband, a seasoned traveler. Can't wait to stay there again. Pure luxury, hardwood floors, funky track lighting, fully equiped kitchen, all black appliances. Stay there while you can at great rates before official opening.
The totally perfect hotel
It was my pleasure being one of the first guests at the new Cosmopolitan Hotel In Toronto.
The hotel is absolutely wonderful. The location is superior (Young & King).
It is a very discrete boutique hotel with high service level.
I have been told that the restaurant should be opened within 2 weeks but yet I received an excellent continental breakfast with beautiful view of Lake Ontario and Down-Town Toronto.
My biggest surprised was that each suites has a balcony and the possibility
For fresh air.
The bath accessory made by Bvlgari - Green Tea is astonishing.
I travel a lot and for me it's the first time that I got flat screen 32" T.V. in the living room and flat screen 22" T.V. in the bedroom.
My room was with flowers, music and special kind of incense.
I got a CD present when I checked out.
I would like to praise Adam and Maria on the reception desk.
You must visit !!!!
One of the best Toronto hotels!
Just got back from two nights at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Toronto. My assisstant booked for me the hotel knowing that, usually, I enjoy exploring new boutique hotels around the globe. The Cosmopolitan is a brand new boutique hotel located at Yonge and King, at the heart of Downtown Toronto. The address is 8 Colborne St., one street, actually, South of King. It is charming, small, and quiet street. It resembled New York in some ways. I got a suite that contained a living room, a full kitchen, a dining counter, a bedroom, a beautiful, clean, and modern-looking shower, as well as a washer and dryer (with complimentary laundry soap). It was a pleasant surprise to find two flat LCD TVs in the suites. The TV in the living room is 32inch! I loved the fact that instead of a carpet, the designer used hardwood, which keeps the suite feeling cleaner. My suite had a nice balcony, and from the 21st floor, I had a wonderful view of Downtown and Lake Ontario. When I arrived, to the hotel, I was escorted by the guest-service manager (called here the "life-style manager"). I recieved a relaxation CD as a present for the opening, and it was quiet an experience to lie down and relax, while a beautiful in-room fountain, spread its light on the ceiling. On the last day, they opened the gym, but I did not have the time to explore it. If the hotel will keep the level of service I got during my stay, there is no doubt in my mind that this hotel will be one of the finest in Canada.
Oasis in down town Toronto
Back again in Toronto and have decided to stay in this newly just opened hotel.
Tucked in a little quiet side street you are suddenly emerged to a tranquill location with rooms amazingly decorated with beatiful fountains and fresh bamboo. bathrooms are amazingly nice and comfurtable. nothing i have seen in a hotel before. service is over and beyond friendly just to make sure all your needs are met.
