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
Cannot understand the lengths which the hotel goes to to actively lock you out of using anything on the TV. There's a whole setup to connect to the TV and it doesn't work and actually more or less seems to be a smoke and mirrors setup.
Also there's a giant gap between the mattress and the headboard which makes for a rather uncomfortable sleep.
Not value for money. At almost $400 per night, there was no refrigerator in the room.
Insecurity at the parking bay. My car was scratched while parked at the hotel provided parking, yet they refused to accept responsibility. I will never stay at the facility anymore.
If you want to experience Toronto as a traveller instead of a tourist stay here. Minutes from China Town, restaurants, cafes bars and pubs. It's an excellent place to park and walk around. My 2" lifted truck even fit for all you pick up drivers. Been coming here years and will again
Even with my 2 inch lifted truck
