Rated 4 out of 5 by Auraluna Good but not great
The hotel itself was a very nice place, the room was clean and very faithful to the description but a few things definitely need some improvement .
The hot tub was filthy, it look clean but a minute into we realized the filter wasn't workin and the water was filthy and full of bacteria. Middle of the summer on a long weekend ...not great.
Also there was no mention of the parking fees $50 dollars for parking is almost criminal.
I will resume at : A bit pricy for the No Frills Stay we recieved

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimtraveller Great staff and services
I arrived early and the hotel was able to accomodate me with an early check in which was great for me to have an early start of the day.
The room was comfortable.
The club lounge food was a bit less than I remembered from my previous stays, for example, the evening snacks were much less in selections.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SPG9 Bad service and in desperate need of updating
Really disappointed by our recent stay with the poor level of service from inadequate valet service, misinformed front desk staff and rooms that are in desperate need of updating.

Great service offered by the hotel staff. Facility was very clean. Although hotel was extremely busy staff at check in/out desk and valet parking attendants did a fantastic job of providing quick service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by travellertime Who still charges for WiFi?
In this day and age where WiFi is free in every Canadian airport, I was shocked to find they still charge for WiFi in this hotel. I travel quite a bit, mostly in the U.S., and I haven't had to pay for WiFi for years. Come on Sheraton join this century.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Saucy83 Hotel is good - bad sleep and no explanation for parking
The hotel was a fairly good hotel. We spent two nights in the hotel.
The first night the fire alarm went off and there was no explanation as to what had happened and no real acknowledgement of the nuisance this caused guests at 3am.
The second thing would be the parking. We drove into the hotel and there was no indication where the parking for the hotel was. Someone came and valet parked our car without us knowing where to park we allowed this and it cost us $50 per night. As guests spending the night and enough money to stay here there should have been more of an indication as to where we could park that would not have cost $50 a day as we only took our car out once the entire time we were here.
Other than those two complaints the hotel was clean and staff was mostly friendly. Hotel was close to everything downtown, great location.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DisappointedSPGmember1 Worst hotel experience ever. Dirty Room, Unsanitary Bathroom, Imprisoned by Carabana, and Poor Customer Service.
Usually my wife and I like this hotel. This time I will probably find a new 'favourite' Toronto hotel.
In summary the room was dirty, and upon check in one of the towels had make up on it, and the toilet did not flush properly (a piece of solid waste was still floating in the water!!!!????). Also upon arrival I was told that the hotel was in 'lock down' after 9:00pm and that my daughter and boyfriend (the people we came to Toronto to visit) could not come up to our room after 9:00pm ??. When I called about the dirty room I was put on hold and told by customer service that they would call back in ten minutes. In fact it was over an hour when I called them again.
I paid $350+ a night for this terrible situation?? To add to that I had Club Lounge access. I was told that my daughter could not join us in the lounge (yet there were dozens of families with children in the lounge eating and drinking ??? I am sure that they simply did not ask as I did. They no doubt simply walked in.
This weekend was the worst I have ever encountered in a hotel. Bad Service , Dirty Room, Unsanitary bathroom, Double Standards, and a building Lock Down?? ...I travel often and I know hotels. This is not a recommended place anymore. I am not a person who rants and makes a scene but maybe I should have done that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Merlin2286 Lounge needs improvement
Being a platinum member, I have stayed at this particular Sheraton many times. I have been impressed with the breakfast lounge but on this particular visit, I was very unimpressed with the selection. Besides the usual high fat carb foods, there is usually cheese and cold cuts but on this occasion there was no protein source besides hard boiled eggs. I have travelled internationally and visited Starwood lounges all over and all of them have a better food selection than this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LandedSPG A tricky hotel to review....
I've stayed here once or twice a year since 2008. I've never had a problem here until I had a problem. What I mean by that is simple; this is a very very busy hotel in a very prime location in downtown Toronto and as long as you don't need to interact with the hotel staff you'll be fine but the second you need anything you might have to wait for it a long time!
If you are the room service type or the type that likes to talk to the concirge for twenty minutes about every little thing you will be stressed out as this hotel is always busy and a sense of rush rush always exists with the staff when it comes to conversation and a slow pace when it comes to service. If you can get over that, you'll love the hotel, the location, the PLAT benifits and usually the price!
This hotel meets or exceeds almost all category 3 expectations!

I stay at the Sheraton all of the time because I have an spg. rewards card and I find that I can redeem my points quite frequently. The hotel is always clean and very comfortable. It is also walking distance to the ballet, the CN station , Queen West, and the Eaton Centre.
There was an incident last winter when too many young guests at a conference were having a loud party in the halls. The management did handle it but it was very upsetting and disruptive. I make sure that I do not stay on a "party floor" when I stay .there.

I think it is very important to state that the offer to participate in the "green' program is misleading. I thought it meant energy saving initiatives saving linen, towels etc. But in fact, my understanding now is that your initiative is simply to reduce your housekeeping staff. The beds are already not changed every day for the same guest and towels can be reused etc. I encourage to make it clear to guests that your request for this initiatve is to reduce your housekeeping staff if guests do not want their beds made, garbage emptied and room vacuumed

Rated 4 out of 5 by james Friendly staff but needs improvement and attention to detail.. Fantastic location
Overall, it was a good overnight stay. Suggested improvements: Food for club lounge needs to really improve - breakfast and afternoon snack. touch up paint here and there, lights not so dim and maybe new furniture in the club floor rooms?
Also, if a suite upgrade is used vs a comp upgrade, platinum member should get a regular suite and not a junior suite with a small bathroom for 3 people.

Loved seeing the CN tower lit up at night from our window. A little problem with guest/hall noises (and a 3 am fire alarm prank), but overall a very nice stay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SThi Club Lounge disappointing
The room was okay. Bed was not really comfortable.
The club lounge was a big disappointment. I see on the website there should be cold meats platter but there was none of that. Just cold hard boiled eggs and bread and fruit. I didn't use it for breakfast except the first day.
However, the service was good once they picked up the phone. I had to let it ring for a long time. The first time I called, I gave up and hung up. But once I made a request, the service was prompt.
The swimming pool was the best part of the hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pasin27 Rooms are dated, internet & food overpriced
The room carpet was vacuumed of course, but it was badly in need of cleaning. There
were lots of stains on carpet.
The shower curtain rod was loose and ready to fall off.
I'm a big guy. Please replace double beds with queens.
The internet costs are way over-priced.
The food at hotel is good but way over-priced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leroy1959 Stay at Sheraton
The hotel lobby was quite clean and inviting. The personnel was very helpful and friendly. The floors where the rooms are could use some updating ver gloomy and dark. There was no information in the room about the hotel such as restaurants, pool and ice machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marrick Very Personable Staff
I spent one month at this hotel while conducting business in the Toronto area. My experience at the Sheraton was VERY positive. What stood out, was the staff. For example, Blesilda accomodated the food requests of my children when the stayed at the hotel for a family visit. My son has food allergies which Blesilda took not of. She then ordered various foods he could eat without triggering a reaction. The help was all strongly appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darryl8 Great SPG recognition
The hotel went over and above when it came to recognizing special guests that were in Toronto for a special family event. SPG recognition is excellent and one of the best club lounges I have been in! Can't say enough about the SPG recognition.

Rated 3 out of 5 nice lobby...rooms getting tired
air conditioning not working properly...set at 18 shows 24.5
when i checked out and advised of the problem, clerk advised he would add SPG points as compensation for the issue...never happened
for a premium club room...i should be on a floor with direct access to club room privileges and not take two elevator rides to get there

Rated 3 out of 5 by inukshuk Gold and I got the least desirable room ever
I just got notice of reaching SPG gold status and instead of getting my normal room in the Queen tower nor did I get a king size bed.
The room was comfortable, but when I asked at the front desk for my usual room type, I was told the hotel was over sold and that I could not get my request accommodated, even with the recent gold status.
I stay at this hotel once per month, and recently almost every week or second week for the last two years. I am booked in either through central booking with AMAPCEO or booking on my own.
I am thoroughly disappointed in the SPG benefits. What is the benefit of accumulating points if they mean nothing.
Sincerely and unsatisfied customer

Rated 4 out of 5 by aquajeffery Unpleasant luggage assistance
I stay here for two nights - July 16 and 17 2014. Everything was great. Wonderful friendly front desk, clean room, amazing outdoor pool. I had a great time staying here until the day I left...
My flight was at 5 pm and the hotel
Is fully booked for the weekend so I can't get the late check out. So I have to use the luggage service. The dark skin old man was very not friendly and have me the look of 'I do not wanna help you, why did you cut off my conversation with my colleague!' He asked my room number and took my small one carry-on away and back with a ticket and continue chatting with his colleague. I work for hotel industry as well. I know it doesn't sounds like a big deal, but he was the first person I see today and it just gave me a bad image to stay here. I have to give it a two stars due to that bad apple!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HeidiR Worst ever experience
I have been a SPG member for many years and this hotel is by far the worst property I have ever stayed at anywhere. The room was old and dirty, bathroom also the same and the sink so small and low that you had to bend from the waist to rinse your face. The Club Lounge was disgustingly dirty and the food what you will perhaps find at a gas station in Timbuktu. Although our room included WiFi we had to constantly login to the service every time we will use a device and though we were booked and stayed for a week we had to purchase service every day. These are only a few issues we experienced as there isn't enough space here to list them all. The $350+ we paid for this room was a complete waste of money and our worst hotel experience ever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by frequentflyer20 This hotel has seen better days
A long-time favorite of mine, I was disappointed by the hotel on my most recent visit. It wasn't as clean as I would expect for a hotel of this sort. Although my room was acceptable, colleagues staying there at the same time complained of very dirty carpets and an overall run down appearance. It may be time for some refurbishing. The location is great however.
