An August 2005 trip
to Toronto by Dave148
Quote: It was a great visit. I wish I had more time.
Hotel | "Westin Harbour Castle"
The hotel is located directly across the street from a TTC streetcar station. Note: That particular station is unmanned (no ticket booth or token machine). Be sure to have your $2.50 fare. The $8 day pass is a great value.
The ferry terminal to Toronto Island is directly behind the hotel. I recommend a visit to the island.
I had a great room on the 31st floor overlooking the water. It was in great shape. When I called to get my pillows replaced with foam pillows, housekeeping arrived promptly. The concierge service was great.
There was a great indoor pool/health club area. My only complaint was the temperature of the hot tub. It needed to be a bit warmer.
