Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanTO Overnight in Toronto
It was a busy weekend, and I had booked the last available room with a Queen bed. I was very surprised when I was upgraded to a suite as I was under the impression the hotel was sold out. Great job to the team for accommodating and ensuring a great stay. The hotel is being renovated, so some of the rooms are much nicer.

My son and I stayed for 1 night to go watch the Blue Jays Game. The convenience of walking to the Rogers Centre and Eaton Centre was perfect. I have stayed at the Sheraton Centre before and have always had a great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew2016 Perfect Location
I have never written a review anytime that I have stayed in Toronto, but my last weekend at The Sheraton Centre was amazing! The Sheraton Centre is in the perfect location when wanting to get away from the normal day to day activity of life. The guestrooms have been renovated and are well appointed, the pool is great with it being both indoor and outdoor, as well as the lobby with the comfortable and welcoming seating area. My favorite part of my trip is that my favorite hotel company (Starwood Hotels & Resorts) and my favorite retail company (Hudson's Bay Company) are attached via a quick walk through the Path System. Talk about racking up the points! Just beyond the doors of the Sheraton Centre are fantastic places to eat and shop! This hotel is always at the top of my list when coming to Toronto. The old commercial from the 1980's still rings true, "When you go places, the showplace is a Sheraton!" (and considering that Starwood Hotels are my only choice for accommodation, as the saying goes, "Why go to the rest when you've already got the best?"). #SPGlife

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1nternat1ona1Trave1er Terrible Guest Experience Management
I typically stay in other hotels, however Sheraton had a really great deal. (I guess you get what you pay for) The concierge, receptionists and housekeeping personnel were great. The manager was very rude, dismissive and borderline disrespectful. I will never stay at another Sheraton in the US or internationally. We were treated like we were second rate guests. This hotel may want to have the lower level employees train the managers on customer service, listening and how to carry on a conversation with a paying guest.

Located near the village and parade route. It seems that every time I stay at this Sheraton...the alarm is activated during the middle of the night. Great location, near subway, shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by khoodental Outstanding stay, exceeds expectations
I always stay at the Sheraton Center when in Toronto. This trip was made exceptionally well due to one factor; Brian the frontdesk who checked us in. Amazing service, truly bringing back the lost tradition of hospitality to the hotelier industry. Rooms were excellent as always and the location makes it a short walk or uber to most restaurants. Double thumbs up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gus1704 Lovely refurbed rooms with an excellent pool area
We booked the Sheraton Toronto because the rooms had recently been refurbed and it had an outdoor pool as I was travelling at the height of summer with my family. Both were great and fully met expectations. We had a breakfast inclusive rate and again the breakfast really hit the spot however be warned that we were charged for breakfast for each night of our stay so do ensure you check your bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PamsyLat Very comfy; Great location; NO "free' WiFi in rooms
The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a great location downtown Toronto - near Union Station, Air Canada Center, Rogers Center, Ripley's Aquarium, CN Tower, Eaton Center - all within a short walking distance!! Price was reasonable for the convenience. TV did not work the greatest and we were very disappointed that there was no 'free' WiFi in the room - you had to pay for it. Free WiFi was available in the lobby but that was very inconvenient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doug999 OK But Showers are awful......
Overall pretty good had to change rooms half way through and they couldnt put portfolio together onto one bill. Room was great only major complaint is that I judge hotel rooms on how the bed and shower are. The shower was a new highwater mark for terrible - guys in the elevator were even complaining. It must be a water saver head because truly there is no water coming through the head.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ashgula Unprofessional Staff
I had booked 3 connecting rooms for my stay, 1 bedroom, a living room, and another bedroom space. Upon arriving at 6pm, when check in was at 3pm, I was told 2 of my rooms were still not ready! I was sent up to the smaller bedroom and was told to wait an hour for the rooms to be cleaned. An hour later I had called to see the status, and I was told there was an issue of the staff not being able to access the rooms. I do not understand why I had to call back to see the status and why I was not was informed, I do not know how long I would have actually had to wait if I did not follow up. I also do not understand why this problem was not resolved when check in was at 3! It seems as if they do not care about their guests and that they would only deal with problems at hand, instead of taking professional preventative measures. Instead I had to take action as it was now 7:45. My bedroom fortunately had an unlocked connecting door and I was able to access the other two rooms. The Living room was locked on the inside, however, had they attempted to access through the bedroom or through my room, this would have been resolved much quicker, instead me, as a guest, I had to solve my problem. Ultimately, it was up to me to make my stay enjoyable, as the staff failed miserably with their poor problem solving and communication skills. I did receive complimentary parking and wine, but it simply did not make my experience a good one, as I felt like I was not given enough attention as a paying customer. Would not stay again as they do not value me as a customer or my money.

Once again another great stay in the Sheraton. Always a warm and friendly welcome. Brian of course always takes care of us as does Steve on the front desk. Brenda our room attendant is the best. Many many other members of staff so helpful to us.
The hotel has the perfect situation for running around the city or just shopping. It also has a coffee shop just to sit and watch the world go by or the Bn'B for a hearty full breakfast or evening meal or drink. Alterntively it also has a Club Lounge where once again all staff on the 43rd floor are always happy to help. Plenty of facilities so why stay anywhere else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Craig87 Had NO bed the first night
Was HUGELY disappointed by my stay at the Sheraton in Toronto. I was there for business and was completely aghast that upon arriving and checking in at the hotel learning there was no room with a bed for me and I had been assigned a room with a sofa bed. A MINIMUM expectation I have for a hotel booking is a bed. The reason or reasons I hadn't been assigned a suitable room where not offered and fairly pathetic compensation was offered ie breakfast (which already came with my booking), access to the Club (again, already should have come with my booking). Whilst I see that have given me 5000 spg points, I do not believe this fairly compensates the experience. The room was over $500 per night and to still be expected to pay the full room rate with little if no compensation is hugely disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raphott Good accommodation for the business traveller
We stayed at the Sheraton for two nights during a recent business trip to Toronto. We knew we would be checking in late and notified the hotel in advance. Check in was efficient, our room was exactly what we required and everything in it was in good condition. This hotel is very big and the lobby is always bustling but the rooms were quiet. We were offered and accepted the green option to forego daily maid service in order to reduce our usage of energy. The hotel is close to good restaurants, the opera and theatres so there is a good choice of evening entertainment.

Stayed at the Sheraton for six nights while attending a conference a few blocks away. Staff super friendly at check-in. Got an upgrade to a higher floor with a wonderful view of the City Hall at Nathan Phillips Square. The room was recently renovated so looked brand new. Loved the large fitness center, especially the treadmills. The heated pool looked amazing - really wished I knew how to swim. The hotel location was so convenient. You don't even have to step outside due to the labyrinth of below-ground walk ways connecting the Sheraton to the major buildings/shopping centers downtown. China Town within walking distance was a bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 7521 Could be better
The hotel is generally good, especially in facility and location. I was booking 4 rooms, all of them are being upgraded with club privilege which is pretty good. the club on the top floor is also amazingly beautiful and the service is great.
There is nothing goes too far wrong with this hotel. But I really wish it to be a topnotch hotel in Toronto. It's has the potential to feature 5-star facility. Especially since it's going to competing with newer hotel that much much more modern. The food and drink option in both restaurants and lounge could be improved. Room may also need a bit attention to detail.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mike301 Great location, but sub-par experience
I've now stayed at this hotel twice in the past few weeks and have had a disappointing stay both times. I experienced poor sleep quality since I was woken up repeatedly by screaming and laughing in the hallway. I don't know if this hotel is used principally for young folks partying but that's certainly not what I was there. I also find the service is not really up to par: I always have to ask for Gold benefits when I check in, it shouldn't be that way. I also found the housekeeping was imperfect. The lobby and pedestrian entrances to the hotel are cold and impersonal.
That being said, the rooms are well-decorated and the location is excellent (including connections to the underground PATH), it's truly a shame the service is not where it should be.

Hotel upgrades are excellent. Check-in prompt and courteous. Club lounge food is very good for breakfast and snacks after work. Every once in a while, its actually my dinner. Service in AM and PM in lounge is always friendly and prompt, without being overbearing. Room is very clean and beds are comfortable - as you would expect. HVAC runs quietly.

I want to say a big THANK YOU! for giving me such a prompt, secured and professional assistance during my stay last week.
Was in a rush to catch the flight that I left my passport and cash behind in the room's safe when I checked out
I called the hotel and the operator was most efficient and quick in understanding my "panic".
Mr Manuel, your Security personnel worked on my case and I was so relieved when they found my passports safe and sound in the room's safe.
Thank you so much! A job well done!

Club lounge and staff are terrific, one of the best teams under Bles and Anita, they really try hard and look after their guests, i would find it difficult to find a better team anywhere, well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GregGregGreg Terrible meal served to hundreds of guests
I attended a dinner for the participants in my conference. There were a couple hundred people there. We were served a four course meal, and I'm evaluating it based on my years of experience working with a caterer serving food for groups of 20 - 1000 people.
We had four courses:
The soup this year was so salty it was inedible. Nobody at my table enjoyed it. I only ate one spoonful. The mushroom soup that was served two years ago was excellent - new chef? This year it was disgusting.
The highlight of the meal, but still mediocre at best. Greens, mozzarella slices, tomatoes. It was an entirely boring salad. The mozzarella slices were all stuck together and the tomatoes were not fresh. Who allowed this produce onto the plate? Compare this salad to last year's: watermelon with mozzarella and tomatoes. That was was great! This year - new chef? - totally uninspired.
I was served the chicken breast in accordance with my request for no beef. It was cold and hard. Did the kitchen staff boil this for way too long, or was it heated from frozen? Somebody in the kitchen must have noticed how tough the chicken breast was because somebody decided to drench it in beef gravy. Oh darn, there goes my "no beef" request. Accompanied by way too sweetened sweet potato mash and one piece of broccoli and a single carrot. Most of this plate made it's way back to the kitchen
I had an apple tart, and I ate the (canned?) filling. The pastry shell was so hard I could snap it like a "sesame snap".
I was astonished that a meal this terrible could come out of the kitchen of your hotel. I have eaten at three of these banquets and there has always been a mediocre element, and an excellent element. This year the chef was 0 for 4 on the four courses.
I don't know what our group was charged per person for this dinner. For under $25 I could get a can of Campbell's Mushroom Soup, a Quarter chicken dinner from Swiss Chalet with sides, an Apple pie from McDonald's, and a cheap bottle of wine from the LCBO, and still have a higher quality meal than this.
During the meal I asked to talk to the chef directly but the chef had already left the building. I left my contact information with the manager on duty, but the chef has not contacted me as of a week later. I would like to hear back from somebody about my comments. As of now, I would recommend anyone steer clear of the catering services at the Sheraton. A hotel of your size should have no problem putting out some decent food for a group of this size. Most guests at my table left hungry since the food was so bad. What will you do to make this experience better? I hope you realize that this conference used to be held in Niagara Falls every other year and does not need to be held in Toronto.

Got upgraded to one of the renovated rooms and I am impressed. The views of City Hall and the city-scape are amazing. The room is immaculate and well appointed, as well as laid out; quite spacious. The added touches of a card from the manager and complimentary treats for my birthday were excellent touches on customer service; a big thank you! The location is perfect, very near to the subway and streetcar. The location is walkable from Union Station.
