How to Get There
It was a great location with plenty of restaurant and entertainment choices. The room was spacious and clean. I liked tjat there were no carpets in the room.
Reasonable walking distance to most attractions in the downtown core. Subway and streetcars near the hotel.
The condo nextdoor at 210 Victoria also lists suites under various names, including the "Pinnacle at Pantages". I though I was booking the Pantages, which looks lovely. But as it turned out I got caught in a scam by the third party agents for a suite in the property nextdoor. I was relieved of a "damage deposit" that was supposed to be refundable. It's now two months after my stay there, and i've heard nothing in response to numerous emails. The phone number gives a busy signal. Stay at the hotel, not the condo!
We were staying for a wedding and were really disappointed. The room itself was clean but the beds are not queen (we measured) and when we asked to move rooms to an actual queen bed they said they didn't have doubles and that ours was a queen. We were on the 16th floor and the window didn't have a screen. A child could easily fall out accidentally. The desk service wasn't good. They said for our inconvenience they'd send up an amenities package but we never got one. Location is great but it felt like we were paying for the location and that's it. Other people in our party had an even worse experience with customer service over charging and then refusing to refund. I wouldn't stay here again, you get better service in AirBnBs for less money and less hassle.
We chose the Pantages Hotel for a one night stay to see a show downtown and celebrate our 45th wedding anniverary. Staying over on a Sunday in early June, just before the start of the tourist season allowed us to take advantage of a very reasonable rate.
Our first impression of the hotel came through Shayna, who was on the front desk when we arrived. She is a very valuable asset to the hotel as someone who made us feel right at home almost immediately and proved to be very helpful!
There were a couple of minor disappointments as there was no jacuzzi tub, robe & slippers or newspaper which were all noted on our reservation confirmation sent by email. The main floor/entry to the hotel is modern and impressive but our room looked to need refurbishing very soon.
The location is great (gotta love the proximity to theatres and clubs plus the Fran's restaurant attached to the hotel)! We were pleased with our view of the iconic Massey Hall. The underground parking right across the street was very convenient as well (cost CDN $36. for the night)
Great location but the facilities are dated. Our room was adequate but more like a bed-sitting room and I am not sure if having a full kitchen complete with dishwasher washing machine and dryer as well as a microwave is what is expected from a hotel bedroom. The room, therefore, lacked the comfortable, relaxed feeling that I am used to experiencing when I open my bedroom door.
The location was good, the room was clean and the staff were polite.
