    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

    In the Heart of the City

    I generally take 'pilgrimages' to the city a few times a year, to take in a concert, go to the museum visit the AGO or just to get out of my familiar surroundings. This visit was just an overnighter as I was catching a train bound for New York the next morning, and AMTRAK only runs once a day out of Toronto. I stayed at The Rex this time, after …

    ... first leg of our trip was a 5 hour flight from Toronto to L.A. The flight itself was bit bumpy at times but overall not too bad. We did see a nice sunset over the city just before we landed at LAX.
    Then after paying over $30 for 2 ham sandwiches and 2 drinks we were off again.
    The next leg of our journey was 13 hours from L.A. to Auckland. We were very happy to see our seats when we boarded the plane. Although they were not first class or executive ...

    ... she went through the machine and we were on our way to wait for the flight. There was some wonder of who would be sitting in the seat beside me as I was stuck in the middle seat. It turned out to be someone quite interesting. After boarding, I struck up a conversation with the man sitting next to me. His name is Gejr Hartly Andreassen and he is the cinematographer for the film The Mortal Instruments. While he's traveled all over he was genuinely interested ...

    Terrible Toronto

    ... arrived late by that amount of time.

    Still, we are in New York and JF Kennedy airport and thinking nothing will go wrong now. Hope the driver Liz booked to take us to the hotel is still here.

    Oops, I was wrong. After being told our luggage would come to carousel 5 we got redirected to carousel 4. 15 minutes later everyone is wondering where the bags are. Here they come and my bag is the first one down the chute (hooray) so Liz's can't be far ...
