Image of the Tripadvisor rating Hidden gem in Toronto - great hotel - 5 star experience - maybe just maybe the BEST SPA in the GTA

Jan 22, 2020 marcobA4970IO

Great overall experience - hospitality, facilities, restaurants and the SPA is a must go to. Definitely a gem and a quick less than $10 ride into the city but hotel has enough to do for a great weekend getaway - special place for a valentine's getaway.

Made our reservations directly on their page. Communication was quick confirming our booking. We picked Hotel X because of it’s location. Very easy access from Lakeshore Blvd. Received an email a few days before our arrival pointing out the hotel amenities and points of interest. Upon our arrival we were well greeted by staff collecting our luggage and helping us with parking. Self parking is available but the cost difference for valet was tiny so we opted for valet. All the staff we encountered from the car to the front desk made us feel very friendly. Lanre welcomed us at the front desk and quickly got us squared away. He asked if we had stayed with them in the past. We told him no, first time. Lanre changed a few details and placed us on a higher floor so we would have a unobstructed view of the water front. Our room was well laid out. With a spectacular view of Lake Ontario. We explored the different areas of the hotel before heading off to the boat show. Once back at Hotel X we headed to the Falcon Sky Bar for happy hour snacks and beverages. Best overall views of the Toronto skyline. (Ok maybe the CN Tower is slightly better, maybe). Wait staff here were terrific. We sampled from the large drink options and snack menu. Very comfortable layout. Large open space with huge windows all around. We made reservations at Petro 82 the Mediterranean based restaurant on the main level. Greeted and seated quickly in a booth of our choice. Now the fun starts. If you recall we spent time upstairs at the Falcon Sky bar snacking and drinking. My wife and I decided we would just eat lightly. You guess it already but don’t spoil it for the others. Yuri, our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and pairing options. Sea food is definitely a focus of the menu. I’m not a great lover of sea food but there were more than enough options for me. Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan options were readily available as well. The evening at Petro 82 was incredible. Staff were attentive and managed to keep our water and wine glasses full without us even noticing sometimes. Our eating “light “ turned into a 3 hour exploration into many features and Chefs specialities. Sharing items are encouraged and any questions or slight alterations were graciously met. Cannot stress enough how incredible the entire staff was with special thank you to Yuri, you made our night. Full and completely hydrated we returned to our room. Relaxed and watch the view from our window before shutting down. Slept very well. It’s the details Hotel X provides that separates them. I will not list everything and spoil the surprise for your stay. Bed and pillows were quality, pressure of the shower was high and very controllable. Tv and internet access were simple and easy. Two highlights for me in the room beyond the above, Nespresso machine already had the water in the machine and there were real spoons. Wonderful! Ok this is getting long. I grabbed a coffee from the 2 floor Nespresso Cafe and strolled the area before breakfast. Has breakfast at Maxx’s Kitchen before getting back in the the car. Yes I’m rushing to wrap this up. Great job Hotel X. Your amenities and restaurants are fantastic but your staff distinguishes you as a world class hotel. See you soon. Read less

From the minute we stepped into the lobby, we were completely blown away by the beauty and cleanliness of the hotel. Every hallway, lobby area, reception desk, library area was an amazing photo op! The greeting at reception was so pleasant! The lake view was spectacular - we could easily see the island airport and Ontario Place and the swans on the lake. The bathroom was amazing with an impressive walk-in shower and the vanity incorporated all of our needs from makeup remover wipes to Q-tips and there were thoughtful shelves for our toiletries and a light-up makeup mirror. We took advantage of the indoor-outdoor rooftop pool despite the snow storm just to say we had done it which was great fun! We also took advantage of Maxx's Kitchen for dinner (while the food was delicious, we didn't get much food for the price - but that's another review). The books in the room were a nice variety and would be great for solo travellers looking for peace and relaxation. We accidentally stumbled into a room set up for a wedding in our search to find an exit on the north side of the building and can only say that a wedding there would be magnificent! The room had a glass floor and the decorations were absolutely beautiful. Every year for Christmas, I buy my husband boat show tickets and a night over at a nice hotel in Toronto. This year, we got an amazing boat show rate with Hotel X and the convenience of staying right across the street from the boat show (Enercare Centre) meant that we didn't have to trek back downtown and pay for parking again (which was very reasonable at the hotel and the parking garage accommodated us nicely - was well lit and very clean!). His Christmas present next year won't likely be a surprise because all weekend, my husband kept saying "I'd like to stay here again next year!" Read less

This is THE hotel that we choose without hesitation.Over the course of numerous doctor's appointments Hotel X is where we lay our heads. It is our second home. The people make this place special. They are genuinely kind. There are so many amenities. And the location is bar none. I recommend this place over and above any other

I live in Toronto and selected this hotel to host a group weekend to celebrate an upcoming wedding. I met 7 out-of-town guests on Friday. From the moment we pulled up until we checked out, the staff was authentically courteous. The hotel exceeded my expectations from the website and online photos. We used a number of the amenities during our 2 night stay. Hot yoga, gym equipment, pool and steam rooms were enjoyed the first day. The pool is partially indoors with access (swim under the glass divider) to the outdoor pool. It is fully heated and we swam outside during the snowstorm! The indoor pool is very limited for space. Most of the pool space is outdoor. We had the package that included 4:30 wine and cheese as well as the continental breakfast. Both services were superb. With our own curiosity tour, we saw the multiple squash courts, the 10XTO fitness facilities and dined in Maxx's restaurant. All amenities impressed everyone in our group. We had free self parking and it was very easy and hassle free access to the hotel elevator. Every employee, no matter what part of the hotel you were in, had a smile and were eager to help however needed. You can certainly come here and have no reason to leave if you're looking for a getaway to chill and treat yourself. I live 15 min away and plan to book family Staycations in the near future.
