Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimtraveller A good location to Pearson Airport
Stayed at this hotel for a few times in the past. I stayed again this time in March 2014.
The hotel was swamped with some county fairs people, and lots of noises and lots of garbage.
The club lounge was adequate, and staff was friendly.
The hotel has a free airport shuttle to and from the airport. However, it runs only every 30 minutes, and it shares with the runs to another hotel. So allow time in your schedule to and from the airport.

I am a frequent traveller and go to Toronto at least a few times a month, and no matter where my meetings take me, I will always stay at this Sheraton. It isn't the newest hotel in the bunch, but by far it is the best!! The big differentiating point for this hotel is their incredible team. From the Reservation Manager Joseph who always accomodates my last minute request to the lovely and taleneted Annissa who always greets me with a hug and a smile at the front desk, to the countless support team like Orlando in the Executive Lounge and the entire Guest and Room Service Team, and you can't forget George and Andrew and the rest of the team at Olio, the restaurant in the hotel. They are all incredible and make me feel like I am always at home. No request is to big for this incredible team that make staying at this Hotel my favorite Country wide.

The pool and hot tub made it feel like you were at a resrort!!Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by James54 Hotel has poor features
compared to other Sheratons this hotel has the poorest Gold lounge I have used. Poor selection is an understatement. The rooms are also very warm, even turning off the heating system does not work. opening the window vent is the only option and then you have the noise from the air traffic . The gym area is very small and cramped with small selction of equipment, no height for even a chin up bar,

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wayne23 Excellent staff. Great club floor
Booked a last-minute get-away. Front desk staff were very welcoming depite the late hour. As Platinum guest was upgraded to a fantastic suite. Spotlessly clean; sound system with CDs; current magazines - it was the perfect place for rest. Buffet breakfast was excellent and plenty of alternate dining choices nearby. Pool is wonderful and clean. Overall, one of the best Sheratons we've stayed at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Q1959 Change the name
This hotel is still called the "Airport" hotel but it is not the one in the airport. I ended booking this one by mistake because of the name. Strongly suggest that you take "airport" out of the name. Call it the Dixon Sheraton. The only one that should be called the airport Sheraton is the hotel AT the airport

I am always very pleased with my visit to this hotel. The staff are exceptional and are always very pleasant. The check in was quick and my visit to the lounge was excellent. Andrea and Orlando did an awesome job as host. They greeted guest with a smile and always asked if there was anything else they could do. These are model employees for SPG.

I would like to commend the management and staff at the Sheraton Toronto Airport (Dixon Rd.) Hotel and Conference Centre. I have been staying at this hotel at least once every three months for the past year and a half and have never once had any kind of a negative experience. Nothing but great things to say about the cleanliness, service and amenities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TorontoDoc Good hotel for small group meeting
We booked this hotel as a convenient location for a small group meeting in April 2014. Overall, we thought it was a good choice.
- Convenient location near Toronto Pearson airport
- Club level was quiet and a good spot for meeting
- Rooms were comfortable
- Olio restaurant had great food!
- Overhead airplane noise was a bit of an issue in the rooms. Certainly, such noise is to be expected when so near to an airport, but it does take some getting used to. Airplanes start fly-bys very early in the morning, so if you are a late riser you might find this bothersome
- Food in the club lounge was just okay - nothing spectacular.

Reception staff are so friendly and polite. Great recognition for platinum. Lounge breakfast fresh berries and fruit. I have a food allergy and the gentleman in the lounge at breakfast was very helpful checking for cross contamination for me. Good place to stay before or after a flight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dave1701 Nice Cover bad Content
I am typing this from my room and I stayed here from the 14th-15th of feb 2014 , I have stayed at several hotels under the Sheraton brand and this hotel needs massive improvement to be associated with the Sheraton brand.
I was very displeased with the entire stay from the check in lines which were extremely long because of inadequate staffing, as only one person was manning the front desk , to the semi rude day staff(night staff was pleasant).
I was mostly concerned about the room, it smelled bad, was very outdated, the air conditioner was making rattling noises both nights and the carpets seemed unheigenic and stained. I couldn't get quality sleep for both the nights.
Overall, I would sum up my experience in the quote from my title as the hotel really needs to focus on the cleanliness, maintenance and attitude of the staff, (I got the feeling that they didn't really care (and it might be because they are close to an airport so aren't in shortage of any customers).
Overall, I would not recommend this hotel at its price range unless you really can't find anything else, the Sheraton next to the airport was much better, The hotel really needs to train the staff a little bit better, as they have forgotten that they are in the hospitality industry and not the airline industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blackwood Nice facilities, outstanding service.
I have had dozens of stays at this property ove the last year or so and I keep returning because of the excellent service, Plat recognition and value. Very nice indoor pool, with several eating options available nearby. The in-house Italian restaurant is quite good, with a buffet breakfast in the morning. Athough I generally use he lounge facilities morning and evening, where the spread is among the best in North America. Friendly staff, who remember their repeat customers - especially front desk and in the lounge. I even got a personally signed Christmas Card this year! All in all, my choice of properties near YYZ, and often my choice in all of Toronto!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlainandKelly Great Hotel
This was a great hotel. It was clean and quiet. Staff was nice and helpful. This hotel accepts dog to 80 lbs which is why we went there. The only thing that brought the rating down to 4 star was the Pet Welcome Package. This idea is GREAT and it is what sold us on the hotel. Only thing is that upon arrival, the package was nowhere to be found. We have to call down to request it. Once it go to the room, it was a small cushion and bowls that were way too small for an 80 lbs dog.
Solution: get package in room in advance and maintain large dog beds. Worst that can happen is that the dog will have more space. Customers will be happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by symmetry Food Quality Varries Greatly
I stayed at the Toronto Shearaton 801 Dixon on Dec 21 & on Dec 27th. I ate in the restaurant both times, ordering the same food. My first visit the seafood chowder was very good and I was happy with my 6oz filet of beef. On this visit the soup was served in an eight inch wide bowl. On my second visit, 6 days later the soup was very poor zerved in a 3 inch wide bowl, The mash potatoes and vegtables were cold.
My wife had the same soup because of my earlier experience and the same meal - she did not like the soup and hers was also cold. This is a serious problem if you want repeat customers.
PS I have reservations for two rooms Jan 27th 2013, at this same location.

I wanted to thank the staff at the Sheraton Toronto Airport for going above and beyond during a recent stay (Oct 1). In the rush of getting out the door for our flight in the morning I forgot my enagegment ring in the bathroom, I didnt notice until l was already through customs and they would not allow me to leave. We called the hotel and they worked hard to find my ring and get it to my airline, who got it to me before I boarded. Thank you again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Spalds87 Not what's expected at a Sheraton Hotel
This hotel clearly needs some renovating, it is sort of stuck in the 90's. Overall it feels dingy, the carpet in my room was no longer taught across the floor, the bench seat was covered in vinyl that was severely worn and ripping in some places. Overall it was not to the normal standards I expect when I am staying at a sheraton. Also it was a very expensive stay ($138 per night plus $18 tax and some other fees too) and for that there wasn't even a fridge in the room, there was an extra charge if you wanted that luxury. I was very disappointed, I have stayed at Sheraton hotels all over the US and have never had a bad experience but this one is in Canada so maybe that made the difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RSChinook Concerns about my recent stay (Nov 2014)
Attention Hotel Management.
I tried to send this letter directly to you rather than to post an online review but was unable to find an email address that I could use. So, instead here is my review.
I normally am not one to complain but I cannot stay silent about my recent stay at your hotel. I have two issues to relate to you… one is about the room and the other is about the service.
Regarding the room:
- I stayed in room 319 as part of a large group but did not receive the same corporate rate as the rest of my cohorts.
- The room was not up to the standards that I would normally expect from a Sheraton brand hotel. Specifically the carpet is terribly stained in a dozen different places making me feel like I could not walk around the room without my shoes on.
Regarding the service:
- The front desk service was excellent! The room service was fantastic! However, the service in the Ole restaurant for breakfast was lackluster at best.
- Our server was an older gentleman who spoke with a slight accent. I don’t know if he simply didn’t like us or if he was having a bad day – but because of him, my experience at Ole was not a good one.
- When I went for breakfast at the Ole restaurant with my wife the server took 15 minutes to attend to us even though there were only two other tables being served at the time.
- The food came fast enough and it was well cooked. However, despite asking four times for milk for my tea, I never received it.
- As we were finishing our meal we were joined by two friends who also ordered their own breakfast. However, as my wife and I were preparing to leave before our friends were done eating, we asked for our bill. The server charged all four breakfasts to my bill without consulting the table about it. I waited for five minutes to try and get his attention but in my frustration I decided that I would simply pay the tab for mine and my friends meals and write this letter to you to report the incident.
I would like to continue to be a fan Sheraton brand but was seriously put off by this last stay.
I thought you would like to know.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Boggled The front desk needs an attitude adjustment
After having spent the night, my husband and I checked out and made them aware of a few "minor" problems with the room (without asking for anything in return...just making them aware). The beside lamp didn't work, the fan in the bathroom didn't work and the "complimentary" bottled water was half drank by the previous guest.
The front desk response was to immediately be defensive and try to explain to me that I was mistaken in my experience. I should have called the night before to complain about the lamp, I shouldn't expect the fan to work.
My response: I walked away.
Not your best work Sheraton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ArrowH Slightly outdated, but great service
Staff/service was exceptional. Rooms were a bit outdated, but comfortable. The best part of the stay was the food. Room service and the club lounge hors d'oeuvres were very good. I'll return for the food, service and location to the airport.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LufromNapa Helpful staff, comfortable bed
My husband and I stayed twice on our recent trip to the Toronto area -- on our way in, and then on our way home.
Both times we were greeted warmly by Mohammed, and one of the times Jeffrey was there as well. They were both very polite, professional, and attentive to our needs. They provided a great first impression of the hotel.
The facilities overall were a bit dated (especially the bathroom), and there was a musty smell in our room. But the bed was super comfy, and the room was quiet -- which resulted in a great night's sleep both times.
We didn't eat at the hotel, but had two really nice meals at Chop Steakhouse next door.
Based on that, I'd stay there again and recommend the hotel to our friends, too.
