Rated 3 out of 5 by Notacomplainer Too Busy To Care
The superior downtown location has brought me to this Sheraton in Toronto on many occasions over the years. If it were not for the convenience of where it is, I likely would not return. Its place dictates its success, and not the service. As a SPG Platinum guest & business traveller I've never felt paricularly welcomed, never, I believe, been upgraded, and generally am dissatisfied and will make efforts never to return except by necessity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kendra11 Mediocre
I was less than impressed first of all with the cost of valet parking. Especially when they likely parked it in the city lot anyway. Second, the room was only superficially clean. Dust build-up was evident. Third, for the price I expected a newer room appearance. It had not been updated in multiple years. There was also a significantly high added cost for internet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 55555 Fitness Equipment Requires a Tune Up
There is a lot of equipment in the fitness room which is great however much of it requires maintenance/recalibrating. Two of the Ellipticals would not turn on and a few had issues where increasing the levels did not increase resistance. One of the pedals on one of the bikes was ripped off. Otherwise the variety and amount is great, but the equipment needs some tuning up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by elizabeth96 No heat
I stay here often and I do enjoy this hotel. Just a warning if you are staying the end of September, the heat is not turned on. I was freezing. I played with the heat a few times thinking it would eventually kick in. I later found out from the hotel the heat was not even on. I had my 5 month old baby with me so I was not too happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Talomas Love the location, but not my first choice in Toronto
It's is a smoke-free hotel, but my rooms have often smelled of smoke. The rooms are showing their age and are often not made up to standard (e.g. sheets not tucked in during my stay yesterday).
The club lounge is quite nice and has pleasant snacks like hummus, cheese, and fruit, but somewhat overpriced drinks. Breakfast in the lounge is average with hard boiled eggs, breads, and fruit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dumb23 I was disappointed
At this hotel there is no recognition of my SPG Gold status. I paid $50 for internet. Nobody wouldhelp help me as to why I had to pay for internet. Room was average. I dont seem to be getting credit for all my stays. All in all it was not good

Rated 3 out of 5 by coqui10462 Hotel is in Ideal Location
Only a handful of issues with my stay and the first was the smell. Most hotel's today are a non-smoking property but upon getting off the elevator I promptly asked the Bellman if this was a non-smoking floor due to smell and he said he was going to get someone to address the issue but the smell persisted during our stay. The other issue is one that many hotels have which is the Satellite Service, not a big deal when traveling alone but you have children its a pain when the signal goes in and out and in this property you can barely watch the TV. As for the service, the restaurant was a pleasant experience and so was the Bell Staff. The Front Desk really was nice but failed to offer me any details regarding the property or the area.

I WAS A BIT TAKEN BACK WITH THE VALET PARKING RATES AT $48....WOW!
WE COME IN FROM OAKVILLE, BUT WILL THINK TWICE NEXT TIME.
CAN'T YOU REDUCE THIS WITH NO IN AND OUT PRIVILEGES...OR FOR LIFETIME PLATINUM SPG MEMBERS...LIKE ME?

Rated 3 out of 5 by LizH Expensive extras.
If you get a room with a dinner-theatre package, the price is very reasonable. However, you are charged for everything else: $2 for a local call, $14.95 for WiFi, for example. Meals are very expensive; the breakfast buffet was $27 a person, which was only slightly better buy than breakfast à la carte prices with a small glass of orange juice costing $5. Valet parking was $48 a night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by oliverfish Needs Updating
I have stayed here many many times in the last 10 years. I am sorry to say that this visit did not meet my expectations. I moved room within minutes after arriving. The air conditioner was so loud, it sounded like a helicopter was in the room. I was given a second room which wasn't up to the usual starwood standards either. The shower curtain was in desperate need of replacing-it reeked of urine! I had to close the bathroom door because the entire room smelled of it. The wallpaper had been torn and carpet lifting.
The front desk staff was exceptional. I didn't bother to change rooms again as I was too tired and only staying one night.
Certainly needing some renovations and maintenance! No longer 4 star!! 3 star now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marsh11972 Great location with a bad view
The location of this hotel is great - practically close to a mall and lots of stores, and public transportation.
I often travel for work and stayed in many hotels throughout the world. Our stay at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel was for pleasure.
When I checked in I asked the front desk clerk for higher
rooms to get better views, but unfortunately the rooms he reserved for us were in 19rd floor with a very bad view.

Have stayed here many times but this time we had multiple issues. We were in two different rooms for noise reasons (not hotels fault) but both rooms had things that didn't work or were not clean. The staff were pleasant and tried to help but we seemed to keep having issues. We used starwood points this time and it used to be 7000 but is now 10000 but the hotel is no where near as good as our many past stays.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Firealarm This hotel has too many fire alarms
Although everything else was ok. I think the hotel is overpriced and during my 3 nights stay 2 of them were not good restfull nights as there were 3 fire alarms and way too much speaking (alarm in basement, firemen called, firement on their way, firemen investigating, firemen say all ok, we apologize and to top it off on the 3rd one they came back and apologize in Spanish.

The room is fine, but the bath was shabby, toilet seat peeling. Also, charging for internet now? For the $$ of your rooms it should be included, other COMPARABLE hotels have many perks included. It's bad enough parking is so expensive or off-site. Checking out was IMPOSSIBLE.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Datenightcouple Helpful Staff
Had issues with the shower filling up with water quickly which was gross. This is our third stay in a Sheraton in two years, and twice now the shower issue. The staff were helpful with the issue though.
Unfortunately Nathan Phillip Square is under construction currently and it starts early in the morning. So try to stay on the south side instead.
Booking online would have saved us money and gotten a nicer room.
Overall we had fun and would return. However, our last Sheraton stay in Niagara Falls was really fun, with the SPG points program giving us free wifi and a welcome gift. Wish they had that here too.

My kids love the pool, but due to the Jamaican Festival in the city, the pool was over crowded. My kids could not enjoy the pool. The noise level during the night was unacceptable, I thought I was back in a College Dorm, I had to request a quieter floor. The location of the hotel is exceptional since you are close to the main streets in Toronto's Down Town area. I ,also, didn't know I had to pay an extra 50 dollars a night for my Car's stay. I hope my car rested better at night Especially the first night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peter15 Check-in process
was too slow; was 10th in line and it took 35 minutes to get to check-in; staff reaction was "it is busy"; not when only 10 people ahead of me.
This happens regularly when I stay here. Considering changing hotels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nani A rather blah experience
The hotel room was at best mediocre. We were "upgraded" to a Junior Suite, but the room was well below average, and needs major renovation. Our checkin was wonderful, with Paresh. He deserves a special mention as his checkin was the best part of the experience. The room service person was very courteous, albeit the food was again average. The fitness room was suboptimal. Bellman services were also suboptimal, and I had to go down after checkin to get the bags to the room. They were just sitting there,even though the bellstaff had been told where to briing the bags. Would not recommend given this experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ryan4711 Can't get a copy of my bill
I just called the hotel for a third time and still no bill. I understand the environmental initiative in terms of not printing bills but this has been unnecessary. When I asked for a bill at check-out, I was told it would be e-mailed to me. It was not and I have called 3 days in a row looking for it and still not received with absolutely no follow up. In the future, I will insist on getting a printed copy. I am a very regular customer (20-25 nights per year) but this level of service has me considering whether I should look at other options.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TaggiCH Noise at midnight! - awaiting refund
I had booked 2 rooms for the nights from 5.-7.July 2012.
Around 2345 in the evening powerdrilling and building near our rooms started, lasted for more than an hour and made sleeping impossible. So after about 30 minutes I had called reception in order to complain and was offered an apology. I insisted and demanded a refund for our rooms which was agreed to by the night financial manager (?). But upon check-out the refund was only applied to one room (957) and not to the other (959) as well...
I accept that sometimes rebuilding needs to be done, but NEVER ever in my 35 years of travel has this happened around midnight!
And then I would expect of a hotel of this renommée (?!), to handle complaints more effciently and completly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nav07 The staff needs to improve their customer service
At check in the clerk asked for a few hours more to have my rooms ready as the rooms I paid for were not available yet. When I came back to get the keys the second clerk had no record of the previous clerk's notes. The second clerk actually lied about not having the booked rooms available because when I asked to speak to the manager, she immediately offered an "upgrade." When I checked online, I realized the "upgrade" the clerk offered was in fact not an upgrade but it was an equivalent room rate with a smaller bed. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone that is celebrating a special event as this run around decreases the enthusiasm for celebration. In addition, I required late check-out and called the front desk and agreed to pay the fee. Yet my room key was blocked because the front desk didn’t put a note on the file about the extended checkout time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JoanneB Not as great as I remember....
I stayed at the Sheraton Centre Toronto for one night with my spouse and 2 young children, as I have done several times before. It is usually our go-to choice in Toronto because of the ideal location. We were able to enjoy the pool, which is definitely a great asset to the hotel. It was also nice that upon check-in we were offered a free movie. Parking is expensive, but this is to be expected, given the location of the hotel.
Of disappointment to me were the following;
After several hours of travel, we checked in quite late at night. The line up and check in process took about half an hour, and when we arrived at our room, neither of the key cards worked to unlock the door. I left my exhausted children laying in the hall outside of our room door with my spouse while I went back downstairs to remedy the problem. There were 7 people in line waiting to check in, so it took me another 40 minutes to get the problem fixed. When we entered the room, there was a very notable odour. My kids immediately complained about it. To me it smelled like moth balls. When we got into bed I noticed that the wall around the vent above the bed was covered in black mildew or maybe it was dirt? Either way, it did not inspire the feeling of cleanliness. It was approaching midnight at this point, so we decided to just live with it.
In the morning I took my children to the lobby restaurant for breakfast, which is quite overpriced! Over $5 for a glass of orange juice!
While this hotel used to be one of my preferred places to stay in the city, I will be branching out on my next trip to Toronto, primarily because I feel that the rooms have become run down. There's nothing worse than a hotel room that doesn't feel completely fresh and clean. I will recommend this hotel because of the location, but the recommendation will come with an explanation for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Phillyvisitorforconferenc nice hotel but long lines
Had to wait half an hour to check in, 15 minutes to check out, 20 minutes to store my bag on checkout. They also charge for wireless in the room which is ridiculous. Changed my room reservation from two beds to one king after i made my reservation, they said they sent me an email about it. they gave me free access to the lounge to compensate for that.
