Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Vaughan
Vaughan, Ontario
It's remarkable that the City of Vaughan, north of Toronto, has so many hotels. Apart from the possible draws like Vaughan Mills and Canada's Wonderland, there's not really much of a reason to visit as a tourist, but the proliferation of major chains have proven that one's wary thoughts are incorrect.
The Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Vaughan compared to other hotels in the immediate area is an older property, and is located at the corner of Highway 7 and Interchange Way, a block or two away from Highway 400 and Highway 407. The definite strong point here is the business centric accommodation that can be reached so easily by car or transit, but the atmosphere at the front has pressing reminders of a European quality, steps from cosmopolitan Woodbridge.
The minute we checked out our room, we realized that this hotel has ensured the guest is sentimentally taken care of, from the chocolates beside the bed to the card that kindly says "good night". I certainly believe that despite the flagrant obsessive use of paper in an attempt to flatter us, it is a point of distinction from your usual business hotel.
With the convention centre next door, there is a definite hint of grandeur, and the lobby is complete with a fireplace and plasma television switched on to the local news channel. An eclectic strategy as they combine a sleek decor in a bid to make you feel warm and cozy with the amentities.
As with other hotels, there is a pool and fitness centre, while the business centre provides a more spacious productive environment compared to other establishments, with plenty of office supplies and complimentary photocopying and printing.
The attentive service certainly stands out, especially with the breakfast buffet, with an attentive staff that provides you with constant inquiries about food and refills before you even think of them. Some may feel it's intrusive, but I think of it as intuitive.
This property is a better hotel than many in the Toronto area. Their focus on ensuring guests feel cozy is a notable effort to say the least.
