Trip Report Sutton Place Hotel, Toronto vs. Westin Harbourfront Castle

Jump to last reply

This year I had stayed at both locations and thought perhaps I would share a few insights.

We stayed at the Harbourfront Castle in June 2010 for our anniversary. Perfect location for summertime. The waterfront is a great spot to relax, enjoy a meal or a drink. Our room overlooked the lake (33rd floor). Well appointed, clean. Very friendly staff. We didn't eat at the hotel, but the menu looked great. The double-decker hop-on/hop-off stop was a block away. Great way to get to the top of town without paying taxi fees - stops at The Distillery, China Town/Kensington Market, etc. $78 for two of us was well worth it. It even included a cruise of the Islands. The ticket is good for your stay in TO. The Castle was also walking distance to Porter Airlines (well 1/2 hour liesurely walk - but we love to walk). We went to a concert at Rogers Centre, and it was also within walking distance. If you want to be in the middle of the shopping district (Eaton Centre, Yorkville) this isn't the place for you unless you don't mind putting on a pair of sneakers.

This month I stayed at the Sutton Place for business. About a $20 cab ride from Porter Airlines (if you haven't flown Porter to their convenient downtown TO location, you are missing out) The Sutton reminds me of the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax, but with larger rooms. Great staff, friendly, helpful. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times, excellent food. About a 10-15 minute walk to Eaton Centre and about 40 minutes to the waterfront. It is located more in the financial district. My rate was $175 which included high-speed internet. I walked every morning (early - 6am) and felt safe doing so. There is a nice little grocery store around the corner, lots of restaurants/coffee shops .
