From the moment you arrive, you are aware you are in a special place. The understated luxury and the attentive but discrete staff mean you can enjoy your stay in the knowledge everything you need is at your fingertips while enjoying as much privacy as you need. The wood-paneled design theme is carried through the hotel from the lobby to your room, which is a haven from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Do ask for a quiet room though as the noise of Toronto's condo construction boom can interrupt the tranquility in some areas (a problem not unique to Le Germain). But the hotel has even thought of that. It helpfully provides ear plugs in the bedrooms for those who are sleep-challenged. It's just one of the many little and big touches that make this hotel an oasis in the entertainment district of Canada's largest city, just a short distance from Toronto's island airport served by the Porter airline. 1. Super staff who don't get "in your face" 2. Understated charm of hotel with thoughtful design touches 3. FantastIc bedrooms with plenty of space (judging by our room) 4. Convenient location in Toronto's downtown theatre district and close to waterfront
Rooms need a refresh.
Very well situated in downtown core. Easy access to theatre distict - easy walking distance to several theatres - and a short walk to Rogers Centre. The purpose of our stay was to see a play and also went to a CFL game. Great
Beds were very comfortable. Carpets were a little dirty
Great stay, nice pool, jacuzzi and sauna. rooms were big and comfortable.
staff quality of the rooms, old bathrooms, no minibar
Location to my business The room facilities were below average. No Fridge. Not able to open window for fresh air.
Nothing, I didnt stay there. They gave my room to someone else. Hilton booked me in an oversold hotel. After traveling 11 hours I showed up and they said i had no room! I paid for 2 nights in advance and it was PAID for. How could Hilton do this? I am a HiltonHonors member, being a member doesn't mean much to them, where is the loyalty? They gave my paid for room to someone else and told me to go find another hotel. UNBELIEVABLE!!
Facilities were excellent and the staff helpful
Great location Easy check in Dated rooms Not sound proof - could hear everything in hallways and on road (I.e. Sirens) No fridge in room Bathroom was very old - needs to be updated badly
Close to everything downtown, one block from subway, clean, modern, friendly helpful staff. A little expensive but that may just be the prices in Toronto.
very clear, affordable, and walking distance from downtown Why would Hilton not offer free WiFi these days for international travelers?
I enjoyed the friendly and professional staff. If you drive into town with a larger vehicle, you will not be able to park onsite. Parking in other locations becomes costly.
Unfortunately due to a late flight, I got in at almost 3:00 AM. They put me on the 26th floor. They didn't tell me there would construction starting on the 26th floor at 8:00 AM. It was terrible. The hotel was not sold out either... It was loud and very difficult to try and get that extra 30 minutes of sleep I needed...
location, near restaurants and bars, cool enviroment nowadays internet should be free everywhere!!!
Staff gracious and kind. Television didn't work all the time. Volume was issue
The staff was friendly and vary nice. The location was good. And the bathroom was beautiful. I don't understand why they charge $1.00 for every local call. And the price was not worth the room.
Nice, comfortable bed. Very spacious room. Lobby is spacious and uncrowdwe. Ambulance siren at nite a recurrent annoyance.
$25.00 for parking is a bit much
Great location, very nice rooms None
Couldn't believe how close to everything this hotel was.. amazing! Outdoor pool on the 17th floor was amazing! Urban sanctuary type deal as sunny with a view of downtown and cn tower No issues found during my stay
Location is fantastic... I walked right out the door into a great restaurant
the location was good for all directions, walking to lake side or into shopping area also train station, bonus the airport bus stops at the hotel. The Lifts were a bit slow, and often needed attention
Parking,staff and the badroom piep in lift
nothing Poor internet connection. Poor security. Location near night club, not safe at night time. Dirty bedsheet.
Quick service. When my granddaughter and I arrived, there was water on the bathroom floor, from a leaky toilet. The problem was resolved immediately. Professional and friendly staff. Glass walls on the bathroom...greatly reduced privacy. Would prefer bathroom door with a handle.
Location, good service at the reception, proximity to convention centre and train station. Great view in room 2500. Nothing
Ease and comfort checking in and out. Facilities are fantastic!
Rooms were clean and nice. Staff was professional and courteous. Nothing
The service and styling is spot-on, generous room size and appointments that made the price good value
their rooms are very clean. their lobby's workers are very kindly. their restrant's workers have a poke face.
The quality of the hotel for bthe price. The inclusion of breakfast was a great plus.
I enjoyed the quality of the room, th ebed was especially comfortable. the spa closed early and the prices of in room dining was out of proportion of Canadian hotel prices.
Location Rooms could have been cleaner
Friendliness of staff, good breakfast, excellent room.
best value, great location, upscale, would stay nowhere else in downtown Toronto price of two drinks in the bar, asked for a glass of wine and a scotch and got a bill for $38
Friendly staff, value for money and very clean Nothing not to like
Comfortable room, with amenities. Staff friendly. Convenient to convention center. Faucet may have been a bit leaky. Didn't love the bedding, but got used to it.
Perfect and convenient. I will stay again!
Beautiful room and bathroom
The staff were very pleasant, well-informed and helpful. Kathleen, the concierge, was outstanding.
It's a quite hotel with less traffic of people made it convenient for me. Needs to make facilities more inviting and pleasant: restaurent and breakfast area.
It is amuzing hotel. It has very helpful staff and a comfortable room. when i come back to toronto, i will stay there again
The room was very attractive, comfortable, spacious, and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lighting in the room was poor.
Great location, clean and spacious.
We enjoyed the accessibilty to our intended events, and truly enjoyed the comfort of the hotel and its amenities. Having worked for years in front desk reception, I found some of your staff to be too formal or "stuffy", as opposed to sincerely welcoming and professional.
Best bathrooms and very friendly staff Room opposite us had a big group staying in room and one night they made a lot of noise until the early hours of the morning
The room is elegant and very modern kept to wait for more than one hour to get my room ready
the styling generally, and the comfortable bed with top quality bed linen the room was small and i feel the price was a little on the high side
Nice hotel on the edge of the downtown core, an easy walk to restaurants and bars on King Street West, Queen Street West, Chinatown and Kensington Market. Hotel is low-rise and relatively small, which is a plus for me. Easy, but somewhat expensive parking underground with direct access to hotel. Luxury room was comfortable and spacious.
- The room was very clean, good temperature control, clean bathrooms, nice lobby/hallways, nice pool/fitness area, friendly staff, fantastic location right near Queen Street West - A fire alarm went off while we were there (around 12:00 pm on Valentine's Day), and it was too loud and it went on for too long. I had a migraine and it was making it infinitely worse. The alarm was pulled in a parking garage, but the cycle went on about 6 times (crazy loud alarm + "there was an alarm pulled in p4, we will keep you updated" - unnecessary). But... They gave my boyfriend a free coke to give me (I drink the caffeine when I have migraines), so that was really nice.
friendly and fast service; new and clean room; fast checkout; just great! parking very expensive and on the street - had to look around for a safe place for overnight
The modern, clean room. The friendly greeting at arrival and then every time that I returned to the hotel during my 3-night stay. The cookies in the lobby at the end of the day were a pleasant surprise and the apples in the morning. The breakfast arrangements in the restaurant and the pleasant waiters and waitresses made for an enjoyable start to the day. Unfortunately, there were some guests on the Friday night who were still listening to music at 3:30 a.m. but due to the construction of the building it was hard to know where the noise was coming from.
nearby to the shopping centers and entertainment areas car parking is too expesive 35$ and the lobby is too small
Valet was a little expensive since we parked it there overnight and never moved it and it still cost us 35
the bed parking prices
I liked location, comfort and staff. stayed twice in week and first room too noisy. Noise from street I think
I loved the location of the hotel, it was so close to the metro convention center which is great for those going to convferences. Walking distance from there. It was also close to King St clubs, bars, pubs which was good for night life. There was a club next door Tryst which had a loud crowd after hours at 2am but if you're staying in the midst of the city, what do you expect?? It wasn't loud enough to be offensive and the hotel front desk staff did an excellent job at keeping the "wanderers: from the club out of the lobby.Excellent staff, I checked in early and the room was ready. The room itself was exceptional, just the right size and very comfortable.I Loved my stay there and would stay there again!! Maybe refill the coffee in the lobby more readily as it ran out sometimes. NOt a big deal though.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Accommodations were clean and modern. Within walking distance to many restaurants and other attractions. Had difficulty keeping the room cool; the air conditioner would stop cooling occasionally. The staff was prompt with a response and a fix.
Location was great Room wasn't very clean and the power went out shortly after we arrived and was down for several hours. This might not have been the hotel's fault, but there was no effort put in to mitigating the issue for the guests (i.e. providing battery powered lights, communicating progress on power restoration). Valet parking was overpriced and, considering the overall cost, this was very poor value for money.
Excellet location to the major attractions in Toronto, or facilities to go to the attractions. Clean and Confortable rooms. Good alternatives on Breakfast
Had to drive around for a
It is in a great location for the entertainment district. I prefer quality over quantity for breakfast. I would recommend fewer items e.g. Organic granola instead of processed granola, that are locally sourced.
Very friendly accomodating staff. Clean and funcitonal room.
The friendliness of the staff stood out, nothing was too much trouble ,the rooms were spotless and the location could not be beaten,the best hotel ive ever stayed in!!!!
The space of the suite we booked was comfortable and quiet and the small kichen area was well equipped.
I love the offering of breakfast and having kitchen facilities.
I had an in-room suite with kitchen and it was perfect for work. I was able to dine in my room and get work done. It was also close to the attractions of downtown Toronto so I spent half a day walking around. A bit pricey for parking but they do have valet parking.
Large room with good facilities and was clean. lack of room service.
Staff was awesome. Room was dated, furniture not anchored to the wall
The room was fantastic – clean, modern, spacious, fully stocked with everything we would need. The locations is great as well, accessible to everything downtown Toronto, close to the subway. Free breakfast was a bonus, and it was very tasty.
The hotel rooms and very nice and the staff are wonderful to deal with. Andrew from the front desk helped us out more than once with a smile on his face each time. The continental breakfast was better than any I've ever had! We stayed here during TIFF and had an absolutely wonderful second experience at this hotel.
Very roomy. Good location to entertainment district. Elevator service can be slow. Breakfast (free) can be crowded but I guess that's what happens when it is free.
Perfect location in downtown, to. Not far from the main attractions. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will def. stay here again!
Location, location, location, staff, breakfast No elevator, no parking, tiny bathroom
The staff was very helpful and friendly. I wish they started the free coffee service a little earlier than 9am. ;-)
The venue itself always had good music playing and served beer, so I was satisfied on that front. The location was the best part as it was close to many attractions. The room was small and so was the bed. I didn't mind so much but my female friend did. If you're the skyline type, don't rent here. If you're the musically inclined, low maintenance type, this place is nice.
The location was o.k. and the Rex bar staff was friendly and helpful Loud, small, no place to put anything. no curtains on windows - had to get dressed without the lights (was like a fish bowl). No ice or vending. Stayed 2 nights and did not see any hotel staff the entire visit. More like a hostel not a hotel.
Lovely staff, very welcoming and understanding of our late check in (3.30am!), very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Cannot say a bad thing about Rex hotel!
Not much. No room check in had to go to bar and walk through a very busy jazz club. Could barely hear the BARTENDÈR giving us keys to our room. The club was over packed and was a pain in the ass to get out of. Room was çold and t.v. had limited channels. Washroom was a joke....stupid set up. Woke up the next day and when we were leaving we noticed about 15 police officers eating breakfast watching us walk down the stairs...very uncomfortable!!! The noise is just unbeatable and you will get no sleep...DON'T BOOK HERE!!!
Staff was very friendly, hotel was clean, and in a really good location. Only thing that would have made it better was if they offered late checkout, but other than it was a nice place to stay if you don't want to spend too much.
The hotel was clean and the staff were great. It's excellently situated for a city trip such as attending a concert and shopping. There are not lots of frills but it's excellent value for money.
The location of the hotel was great not that far from the coach Canada/greyhound terminal. Walking distance from dundas square and Eaton center. The one thing i love is that our bed sheet got dirty after dropping some food as we notified the staff and stepped out for 10min it was already changed for us when we got back. The only thing we didn't like was we had to check in at the bar which we knew already about after reading these reviews but it was okay the staff would still act professional with the guess staying at the hotel.
This is actually a jazz bar and the hotel is a supplementation to it. But jazz is really nice. I guess the original idea of this hotel is to provide some rooms for musicians from the bar below. The owner of the hotel is very helpful and friendly. Floor in the corridor of the second floor was not very clean, probably due to because they were trying to fix something on the ceiling.
hotel staff f are friendly, nice jazz music
The location is absolutely outstanding. The Rogers Centre and CN Tower are right on your door step. Some features of the room were very poor. Flimsy/loose towel rails in bathroom, holes in dry wall, patched walls not painted, build up of dirt on light fixtures (which also seemed loosely fixed/insecure)
The rooms were clean and well maintained. There is a pharmacy just across the street very much like a CVS/Walgreens in the US with just about anything you might need. I was attending a conference and had lunch & dinner there but the breakfasts at the Beverly hotel restaurant were excellent. And it was within walking distance of everywhere I wanted to go. The room was not large and the bathroom was glassed in, no problem for me as I was traveling by myself but no privacy for couples. Frosted glass would have been a better choice.
Room was really clean, had AC, Location ,a small fridge and, nice staff. Very small room for the price. No elevators. glass washroom walls. Not sound proof to neighbors. TV was grainy. Weak wifi that would turn on and off.
Great boutique hotel. Rooms was small but well designed. Good location, cool vibe. Staff was welcoming and room was incredibly comfortable. Great shower, great bed etc. Parking was available in a public lot a few blocks away. The closest lot was $40 overnight but I found one a few blocks further that was $20. Not their fault, just wish there was a cheaper lot nearby
As soon as I arrived , I was greeted with a warm welcome where I felt like I was home away from home. I told the concierge that it was my first time in Toronto and he upgraded our room to the lake side view. When I got to the room, I saw why he had upgraded to the Lake view was even more incredible than I had imagine
service was great, the view was beautiful, the room was excellent. It seemed like the stars aligned for us, but that just may be the great service of the hotel. The weight room was great. The concierge made a reservation for us at this great restaurant downtown. I can't really say there was anything I didn't like about the hotel. I did a lot of research on hotels in toronto, and this was the highest rated and for good reason. If you're on the fence, go with Shangri-La
