... go. Guess what, it wasn't that easy, the Server actually had to double check our orders and yes, we had made some errors. We were quickly forgiven because they knew for some reason I was not so ready and willing to get on that snow covered, ice covered airplane! May have been the "kick it up another 5 ounces for half the price" on the wine list. Goodness gracious what would you do? I had just left all my beautiful children!
The plane is full, all are happy to be going ...

The rest of the check in went smoothly and I still sat at the departure gate for 15 minutes before the Air Canada cabin crew started the boarding calls.
I guess I’m a bit out of travel practice and this was a quick reminder of the attention to mental check lists that travelers, especially those traveling alone, need to employ to avoid losing items.
... buildings are original and feature the oldest buildings in Toronto. The fort saw action during the War of 1812 and was in fact captured by US forces in 1813. The US Army destroyed many buildings in the fledgling city as part of their desire to capture the whole of Canada to make it another US state! They may have won the battle, or at least captured York, but as we all know they ultimately lost the war (hence Canada is not American!). After damaging ...

Went back to the hotel, then in the evening met up with Chris and his boyfriend Josh. Went out to Leslieville on the streetcar and had dinner at Goods and Provisions.

Training session over we were let loose on the Distillery District (with a guide!). We set off and rode around the whole area and received many looks and heard lots of people commenting that they wanted a Segway. We returned to near where we started where we learnt a bit about the founding history of the area (a couple of men with nearly 30 children between them came over from England to set the brewery up ...

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.
