"Well, not what I'm used to, but ..."
Usually when in Toronto, I stay at the Marriott on Yonge, but it was full because of the PanAm Games, so I went onto Expedia to find a room. Most were rather overpriced, but Toronto Central Hotel was offering an attractive price, so I booked. I must say, this small hotel is a conveniently located property. I pulled in, dragged out my luggage from my car, and went in. After a while, a Clerk appeared and pleasantly and efficiently booked me in, gave me my keys and my wifi code. My room was on the 3rd floor, and, there are no elevators! Up I went, having to unlock a door at the top of the first set of stairs ... a bit awkward trying to balance luggage on the stairs and trying to pull open a door at the same time. Next, up another flight of stairs, pull open another door (unlocked) and off to my room. The room is double-locked, which was comforting. Inside the room, it was cool with the air conditioner running, clean small room but adequate, clean bathroom, two sitting chairs, a double bed and TV. There was no coffee maker nor any amenities other than a small bar of soap and a pouch of shampoo. The bed was uncomfortable, but the bedding nice. Heck, since I only occupy the room to sleep, it turned out to be just fine after all. Every morning of my stay, I would leave a tip on the pillow, but the Maid would leave it on the night table. I asked the Clerk at checkout to explain to the Maid that money left on the pillow is her tip, not forgotten money. The desk Clerks are friendly.
