Victoria Hotel Toronto Steps away from all the attractions
The Victoria Hotel Toronto has been welcoming guests for over a century. The 56 rooms are quite spacious and feature modern dcor even though this is a heritage structure in the heart of the downtown. It was constructed in 1909 and at the time it was the first fireproof building in the city of Toronto. Its original name was Hotel Mossop, but the name was changed in 1920 to honor Queen Victoria. It is truly one of the landmark hotels in the city.
There are five categories of rooms to choose from starting with the Standard Twin Single to the Deluxe King. There are rooms for business travelers that have the amenities they would need to be able to catch up on work in their room. All of the guest rooms of this hotel are non-smoking. The beds feature pillow top mattresses and fine linens. The gleaming hardwood floor complements the custom designed furniture in each room. The bathrooms are quite large with oversized sinks in the vanity and glass doors to the shower stall. All guests can enjoy complimentary wireless Internet in the rooms, as well as an iPod docking station, premium cable TV, iron and ironing board, coffee maker and hair dryer.
There is nothing left to chance in the menu offered at the restaurant of the Victoria Hotel Toronto. The Over Easy is known throughout the city for the best breakfast and lunch, especially for its signature egg dishes. The restaurant does not serve dinner because it closes at 3 p.m. every day.
The historic nature of the hotel lends itself to some of the special packages of which you can avail. One of these is a Historical Walking Tour of Toronto. As part of this package you receive a discount of 20% off the cost of the tour and $10 off the regular room rate. If you are visiting Toronto to attend a concert, a sporting event or other event, if you show your tickets when you check in you will receive a full complimentary breakfast at the Open Easy Restaurant and discounts at two of the restaurants in the neighborhood for lunch and dinner.
Union Station is only a few blocks to the south of the hotel. From here you have easy access to the Underground Shopping Network for which the downtown core of the city is so well known. Both the Air Canada Centre and the Rogers Centre are within walking distance as are the Sony Centre and the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts.
The convenient location is one of the reasons that guests keep coming back to stay at the Victoria Hotel Toronto. It is close enough to the St. Lawrence Market that you can pick up everything you need for a picnic in one of the many parks along the waterfront. There is no traffic noise from the street to disturb your sleep and the views from the window of your room will give you a breathtaking view of the city.
