My boyfriend and I stayed for his birthday. I contacted concierge and they arrange everything, including picking him up from his place with the hotel car service. We had a free room upgrade with spectacular views of Lake Ontario and Toronto. During dinner the staff all wished him a happy birthday and offer us free dessert as well. We went to the gym in the morning and had room service for breakfast. All the staff was professional and kind and helped make his birthday memorable. I will be going back again to enjoy other features I missed out on, like the screening room, art gallery, and the Falcon SkyBar and the Pond. Read less

The bed linens were divine. The room was spacious. The bathroom fixtures were fancy. And omg the tub. The only item that warrants constructive criticism is no black out shades. So bring your own eye shades.

This Hotel was fabulous. Cant say enough about the customer service. Elegance comes to mind when describing this hotel. Food is top notch and great bar as well. Martini was the drink of choice. Beds were very comfortable. I would have slept in unfortunately the neighbours alarm went off at 6 am !!! Breakfast was good but $$$.

Upon arrival, made our way to the Sky bar on the 27th floor, had great service and good food options for an afternoon snack. Car service is great and comfortable. Breakfast at Max Restaurant was very tasty and service was exceptional. Rooms are beautiful, great view of city & waterfront and super comfortable beds. Only con is the distance to the downtown core and other restaurants/shopping...at the same time, can see that being a pro in the summer months with the trails just across the street along the waterfront. Overall great stay & will consider for futur stays. Read less

This hotel is a refreshing change to hotels I've stayed in the past. It's ultra modern and the attention to detail cannot be overstated. Everyone is friendly and eager to please which makes your stay that much better. Check in was quick and attentive. The rooms are spacious with great views, the windows open to allow for fresh air and the beds were very comfortable. Spacious bathroom with a very large shower. What's most impressive is the view from the top of the hotel either via the workout facility or one of the two bars. There really are no better views of the city than from HotelX. The hotel is about a 10-15 min drive into the city and they offer a house car to take you within a specific area, but we were able to get downtown via this service many times. My only critique was the elevators. Each person needs to scan for their room and if the elevator is full, you'd miss your floor and have to wait until the elevator comes down. I understand security, but this was a bit excessive and was the only part of the customer journey that I felt could be improved. Would stay again despite being a loyal Marriott Rewards member.
