... from other passengers and a lot of indifferent employees that I successfully run to my gate 10 minutes before the plane leaves! I immediately text Julie to know where she's at but unfortunately it's impossible for her to make it. I try to hold the plane while talking to a very helpful flight attendant, but the flight is full and Julie didn't make it on the list of passengers. So, snif snif, I make it back to Montreal by myself. Signed by Julie ...
... issues and went through a security line twice. The first time we almost made it to the front of the line and then they made us get out of line and go to another security gate. We lined up again and just squeaked through the gate before they closed that security gate down too. I went through security just fine. Heather was "randomly selected" yet again and got the pat down routine. (He he he)
It all ...
Amish country, we're in Amish country! It's snowing and we're chilling with the Amish, in Amish country!! Snow completed a picture perfect setting for our visit into this simplistic part of the world. We arrived at 3:00pm into the the town of Lancaster, PENNSYLVANIA and realised we needed to proactively find some Amish fast before the snow storm worsened. In typical tourist innocence, I asked the hotel reception for the 'Amish whereabouts', their hangout spots. Not realising they ...
... Another afternoon I took the elevators up the CN Tower to get a view of the city. Although the whole experience was a bit anticlimactic, it was the one touristy thing I actually did. During my two or so days, I reconnected with former travel companions I met on two different South American tours last summer. While reminiscing about funny moments and favorite experiences, my hosts showed me some of the neighborhoods like Kensington Market, tasty vegetarian and sushi ...
... carried on exploring the city alone.
I decided to talk a walk around the city to familiarize myself with the roads. First I walked west on Queens street and came across what happened to be the Old City Hall. I really loved the look of the building. I then walked a little more to Nathan and Philips Square. It was a nice open space in front of the New City Hall with a body of water and fountains. I then ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cosmopolitan Hotel Toronto
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.
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.
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.
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.
It was my pleasure being one of the first guests at the new Cosmopolitan Hotel In Toronto.
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.
