Its prime spot on bustling King Street West, in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District, so this Hyatt a good spot to stay if you want easy access to the city’s best restaurants and museums and great shopping. Inside, the look doesn’t stray far from the standard contemporary look of most Hyatts, but the furniture is comfortable (if unimaginative) and all 400 rooms have the trademark (and much beloved) pillow-top Hyatt Grand beds. There are a few room categories, so it’s worth checking out different options depending on if you’re traveling for work (the Business Plan includes pressed shirts and breakfast) or with kids (the Deluxe Suite has a connected living area where you can add a rollaway bed or two). Not all rooms come with coffeemakers, but there’s a convenient Starbucks downstairs if you decide not to opt in on the buffet breakfast.
In the Area
The hotel’s location is ideal for exploring central Toronto and also close to public transportation options if you’d like to go further afield: you’re within walking distance to Union Station’s regional train service and city subways; plus, streetcars run right by the hotel. A couple of Toronto’s most respected galleries are nearby: Circuit Gallery @ Prefix ICA, a modern space with an emphasis on contemporary Canadian artists, is just a couple of blocks from the hotel, and it’s a 15-minute walk to the Art Gallery of Ontario, where the extensive collection of Canadian art covers hundreds of years of history. Nightlife stops include stand-up sessions at the Second City Comedy Club (a branch of the famous Chicago establishment), which is adjacent to the hotel, plus a pint or two at the ever-lively Bar Hop, just down the street, which features a fantastic selection of craft beers. Sports fans can also walk to BMO Field, where the Toronto FC play.
How to Get There
Slightly dated room but all perfectly functional and clean. Great location, especially for CN Tower and Aquarium (highly recommended) and Blur Jays baseball. Really nice to have the pool and the gym was good - spacious, clean and pretty well equipped.
Very nice and clean hotel, nice lobby and walking distance to attractions and restaurants. Allan at the front desk was very friendly. He recognized my globalist status, gave me an upgrade and even offered boxed breakfast once he knew I was leaving early for the airport the next day. Then I walked around the city and when I came back I found a welcome letter with a free drink voucher. Awesome!!
I have stayed at this hotel in the past and there was construction across the street which made the stay not ideal. Now that construction is finished it is a much nicer area with a bunch of restaurants just across the street. But you can also walk a few blocks away and find so many more bars and restaurants. Also CN tower is only a few minutes walk. I would definitely stay at this hotel the next time I visit Toronto.
We took a family vacation to Toronto and booked this room for three nights. We left after one night. The room was incredibly small. When you enter the hotel you think you walked into the Bellagio. Once we opened the door we felt like we were at a Super 8! The price was ridiculous. Our room was located behind the elevators and that's all we heard all night. The air conditioner was very loud when it turned on. We were so dissapointed that we checked out after one night. The only positives were the view of the CN Tower and the staff was friendly. Not a place for families.
