Park Hyatt Toronto, a 7 Hotels In 7 Days Review

Entrance to the Park Hyatt Toronto Hotel
The Algonquin Suite at the Park Hyatt Toronto is about as nice as it can get.  Located on the hotel's top floor with views of Toronto in three directions, it is  large enough for  a family but offers only one bed.  A connecting door gives you access to an additional suit however.  With its great location and fabulous spa the Park Hyatt is a Toronto classic. 

Elegant lobby of the Park Hyatt Toronto

From the moment of your arrival you know this is a Park Hyatt hotel with a high level of service and classic elegance.  From the lobby to the elevators to the hallways you feel a comfortable sense of classic luxury with a modern attention to detail.

The Algonquin Suite is room #1532 and is also known as a presidential suite. Double doors take you into the foyer with marble floors.

The foyer separates the public and more private areas of the suite.  The large columns and inlaid design in the marble floor let you know this is not just any room.  It also offers you your first interaction with over 42 light switches found in the suite.

Suite Living Room at Park Hyatt Toronto

Approximately half of the suite is used as public entertaining spaces.  A living room has a large HDTV and plenty of comfortable seating.  You can see in the image above those light switches control many different lights that can set a variety of moods within the spaces.

The Park Hyatt Toronto staff can make special arrangements for your meals or you can fill the table with the treasures found on the hotel's excellent room service menu.

Suite bar in the Park Hyatt Toronto

A bar makes entertaining large groups a snap.  The dark woods and black marble counter give it a very "clubby" feel.

Butler's pantry behind bar in Suite at Park Hyatt Toronto

Depending on your needs a butler's pantry is provided and outfitted with basic appliances including an Illy espresso machine.  A separate door connects the pantry to the hallway.

Suite office area in Park Hyatt Toronto

As you move into the more private portion of the suite you pass through an office with a comfortable chair and a desk stocked with basic desktop supplies.  A hardwired Internet connection is available for those that prefer a higher level of security.  A guest bathroom is located just off the office.

Suite bedroom sitting area

Double doors lead you into the suite's bedroom area.  A very comfortable sitting area boasts one of the suite's four HDTVs.   TVs are located in the living room, this sitting area, opposite the bed and in the bathroom.

Suite four poster king size bed at Park Hyatt Toronto

A bed that is as comfortable as it is beautiful takes up the other half of the bedroom portion of the suite.  The Park Hyatt has positioned several large stone sculptures are around the suite in locations that help define the spaces.  The bed, pillows and linens were all best in class.  The comforter was a bit heavy for my tastes.

Huge closet in the suite at Park Hyatt Toronto

A very large walk-in closet offers guests plenty of space for their clothes and luggage.  The image above shows only a portion of the hanging space. I was surprised to see such a small safe for a suite.  It is only a few inches deep.

Bathroom in Park Hyatt Toronto suite

The large theme continues into the massive bathroom with marble floors and walls.  Plenty of luxury amenities are supplied.  A small HDTV is provided.

Bathroom in the Park Hyatt Toronto Suite

The shower has two 12 inch rain-style shower heads for an amazing shower.  Obviously built for two but you could easily add a few more for fun!   The tub is over-sized as well.  Towels were large and plentiful.  In a unique twist the robes provided DO NOT have a Park Hyatt logo emblazoned across the chest! An elegant touch.

Table at Annona Restaurant in the Park Hyatt Toronto

If you pass on in-room dining and want to mix with others the ground floor Annona Restaurant is lovely.  I had lunch here and enjoyed the lobster grilled cheese with tomato soup.  For additonal area restaurants check here.

View from the roof top lounge at Park Hyatt Toronto

The view of the Toronto skyline is impressive from The Rooftop Lounge at the Park Hyatt.  With indoor and outdoor seating it makes for a romantic evening under the stars.  A must see view before calling it a night.

Stillwater - The spa at the Park Hyatt Toronto

The Stillwater Spa is one of best in Toronto.  With 17 treatment rooms and server unique services it should be part of every visit.  For more information about the Stillwater Spa visit the Park Hyatt website.

Sunrise over Toronto

Morning sunshine floods the foyer with light.  You can find more Toronto boutique properties in my 7 Hotels In 7 Days feature.

I discovered yet another TV, this one opposite the bed.

The evening before I noticed a lovely chaise lounge chair positioned at this window.  With the morning light I realize the lovely view one has of the city of Toronto.

Hotel's fountain in front of the Park Hyatt Toronto
The large welcoming fountain in front of the Park Hyatt might not be what you would expect or need from an elegant hotel in the heart of a crowded city.  But the Park Hyatt delivers not only with its beautiful surroundings, but with its excellent service.
