How to Get There
For a hotel that boasts ”luxe suites featuring contemporary decor and furnishings” on Google details, I couldn’t have been more disappointed with my stay at Pantages hotel. While we did book our stay through a 3rd party discount (GroupOn), the deal describes “a stay for two in a deluxe studio queen or city king room” and the pictures are of well lit modern and clean suites....the room we stayed in is in DIRE need of renovation. The floors were cracked. The bathroom sink was cracked. We got two double beds in a dark room and one of the beds was a foot from the kitchenette.
The description states that “ Upgraded suites have separate living rooms and washer/dryers.” Our room had washer/dryer that left my clothes smelling sour and I can’t believe that our suite was an upgraded suite.
I get that purchasing through a third party discount site may not get us the best suite on the floor, but we at least expected a comfortable stay. I absolutely won’t be recommending Pantages to anyone for even a quick overnight stay.
Not very clean, our room had two full rubbish containers of food, no parking, you can wait outside for 15mins, coffee in the room is the worst Ive ever tasted, there was only one sachet, I called room service twice for extra and asked for real creamer they eventually sent two more coffees and powder milk.
The reception service downstairs was one of the worst I've experienced before. She was absolutely rude, condescending, and I was surprised to experience this at such an upscale location downtown. We won't be staying here again.
Front staff corrected my concerns promptly in a very efficient and caring way. My room was lovely, clean and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff are wonderful and the hotel is clean and centrally located. St Michaels Hospital is across the street if you are visiting from out of town.
After US customs denied me entry for reasons yet to be determined, my entire weekend was ruined. Having flown into Toronto en route to Boston from Vancouver I was a long way from home, stranded and none to happy. I booked a Hotwire deal and got Pantages Hotel. It took me a little bit to find it, but that’s probably on me. Tired, upset and not thinking clearly, I also lost my debit card. However, I digress. Upon arrival I was greeted by Jessica and things immediately got better. She listened to my plight and showed sincere empathy and really made me feel like I wasn’t alone in a city I wasn’t even supposed to be in. The hotel was great but I struggled with temperature control a bit. Hot cold hot cold. No big deal. Would stay again for sure! Thanks for being awesome, Jessica. Go get that rib steak! ;)
