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
Our stay was great for a quick getaway. The rooftop was a beautiful oasis, but the view of the CN Tower is now obstructed by a new condo that was just built. The rooms were clean, and the staff was friendly.
Everything was great from check-in to check-out. I visit this hotel several times a year and they always treat me great! They were very accommodating to my early arrival (way before check-in) and got me into a great room!
I had to attend meetings in Toronto at the Hyatt so I booked online early and that was flawless. Very simple process. When I checked in in person, it took all of 4 minutes to get a key and directions and I was off. The meeting rooms, although a little chilly, were bright and roomy. The meals we had brought in were really good. The staff who set up the meals (Shiela on Monday and Peter on Tuesday) were extremely accommodating and interested in us having a good experience. For example I have a milk issue, and all the desserts were milk based. So Sheila took the time to go get me a plate of mixed fruit.
I would definitely stay here again.
Exceeded expectations. Room was very clean. Hotel is nice dnd Modern. Staff very friendly. They take care of details very well. Little things like giving bottles of water at check in, room coffee is Starbucks and was very good.
We would def return
The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Toronto. The room was spacious and clean, and the staff was very helpful. I was surprised that there was no vent fan in the bathroom, but, otherwise, this is a wonderful hotel.
