Fodor's Review

The retro, redbrick exterior of this chic hotel—conveniently located near the TIFF Lightbox, site of the Toronto International Film Festival—blends seamlessly with the historic architecture of the surrounding theater district. The lobby has a library, a cappuccino bar, and a double-sided, open-hearth fireplace. Sleek furnishings fill ultramodern rooms, which have Bose stereos, iPod docks, and sexy see-through showers. Suites have separate bedrooms and living rooms,

fireplaces, and private terraces that afford superb views of the skyline. Every room in this intimate 11-story building has a different configuration, ensuring that regular guests never get bored. The restaurant, Victor, serves excellent tapas and a tasting menu divided by Toronto's ethnic neighborhoods—the "Little Italy" dish might be grilled octopus panzanella, for example.

Not what we expected

We stayed here last week. We booked a "media" room where we couldn't access movies the room service menu we had inquired about before booking was not available,the lighting is oddly dark and the view of the alley didn't help anything. I felt invisible to the hotel staff in the lobby everywhere else they were great. We wouldn't go back here

Attention to Detail Required

Damp sheets, 2 small bath towels, no temperature control in the room, no room service drink menu in the room, no effort made to find a room with a tub instead of huge shower even though we were staying serveral nights and "stuff" for sale at the front desk in the lobby!!! Good breakfast and fast room service - for more towels and drink menu. Once was enough thanks.

Modern AND Cozy with a great location

I have stayed at this hotel many times (even prior to it being fully completed) and I have never been disappointed. The rooms are modern, clean and yet cozy. It has a great location with shops and restaurants all within walking distance (no taxis needed)! Free breakfast in the morning and coffees 24/7 in the lobby. The staff is very gracious and accomodating. There is a LOUD bar directly across the street and the music and people can be heard at times

into the wee hours. I exclusively stay at this hotel.

We didn't want to leave....

We just returned from a (2) night stay at this fabulous hotel. Sleek and modern, luxerious bedding and amenities, a courteous and professional staff! Turn down service was especially attentive with ice already in our room, chocolates on our pillow and the sterio softly playing. We didn't want to leave!

A Hidden Treasure in a Big Metro

I just returned from a stay at the Le Germain and was plesantly surprised to find such a great hotel in a city known for 70's mega hotels. The staff was attentive and service impeccable. The free breakfast was elaborate, not just coffee and muffins. Our guestroom could have used some new paint on the walls, but it was very cozy. I will definitely stay there again.
