We stayed here for two nights for a conference. The check in was smooth and there is an underground parking right next to the main entrance. The room was a large suite with a sofa and two armchairs a big screen tv and a very comfortable bed. The shower was amazing and it had all the amenities needed. There was a small section on the entrance which had a table and chair for work. The coffee machine was filled with water and complimentary coffee and tea. The only confusing things were the lights really difficult to figure out. Otherwise the stay was super comfortable. It must be even more beautiful in the summer with the lake right in front. It’s easy to access on the West side of Toronto at Exhibition place. I believe they have a shuttle to Union though we didn’t use it. Read less

Just spent the night at this location and I am happy to say the experience was Amazing. From the early check in to our Lounge experience and the room itself and its wonderful view.. All top shelf. Wine and cheese in the lounge and the breakfast in same location far exceeded our expections.. Did not get to experience the heated pool but it looked amazing. We got some really good views from the top bar and watched the planes land and take off while sipping on a cocktail or two. I would highly recommend and would definitely return. Well done to all staff Read less

The check in with the concierge was awesome , made you feel welcomed . The hotel has 5 elevators so never had to wait very long. Modern in decor and the rooms are well appointed with quite a few extras. For example umbrella , slippers for the pool, shoe horns etc. nespresso coffee makers with comp water is a nice touch. Roof top lounge for those who would like to partake . Nesspresso lounge on second floor is better than the Starbucks around the corner. Hotel location is perfect for those who are going the exhibition grounds or the Budweiser stage. The roof top pool is a must and is heated for year round usage. Not a bad view anywhere. Read less

Such a luxurious stay! I was here for a conference but can't wait to return with my partner. Friendly staff, beautiful rooms, and tasty food. The spa is now open which I was hoping to have time to check out but was busy. It looks glamourous online.
