Those looking for temporary housing usually fall into two different camps: those who live in the area but need a place to stay for a short time and those who are from out of town who will be visiting for a while. People in the first camp tend to have a number of reasons why they would need a place, including having their home remodeled, having suffered a disaster (such as a fire in their home), or as a short term residence while they are in between homes. People in the second camp tend to either be business travelers or vacationers who really want to experience the area the way that locals do. No matter what the reason, those who are looking for temporary housing in Toronto shouldn’t fall into the trap of short-changing the place they decide on simply because they won’t be living there permanently.
Great Temporary Housing for Locals
If you are a local who needs a place to stay for a short time, perhaps a month or two, it is important to choose a place that has the least impact on your daily routine. Not being able to stay in your own home is an inconvenience enough, and the further away you get from your regular lifestyle the more stressful it can be. For example, if you are used to cooking dinner every day after work, you should decide on a place with not only a full kitchen, but that provides all of the basic kitchen necessities.
Great Temporary Housing for Travelers
Travelers often times are as concerned with maintain their regular lifestyle as they are interested in a place where they can rest, or in the case of business travelers, work. If you are vacationing with the family in the Toronto area and need temporary housing, then space is certainly an issue. Everyone will need their own space to recuperate after taking in the city. On the other hand, business travelers need to ensure that there is some sort of work station or desk that they can use.

For All Stays
Weekly Touch Up Service
For your safety and ours, weekly touch up service is cancelled until April 30, 2020. We encourage guests to utilize the ensuite washer and dryer to launder their linens and towels. For guests wishing to receive fresh linens, please send a request through Guest Services, and we will arrange to pick up your used linens (left in a bag at the front door inside the suite) and drop off fresh linen for you to use.
Our Commitment to High Cleaning Standards
We have always utilized commercial hospitality-grade cleaning procedures and supplies. We use specialized chemicals for different surfaces to ensure optimal disinfection. We also use new gloves and separate microfibre cleaning cloths for each suite to prevent cross-contamination. Any linens or cleaning cloths supplies by us have been professionally sanitized at a large commercial laundry facility.
Suite Visits by Guest Services & Maintenance
Until April 30, 2020, we will not conduct any suite tours for prospective guests, nor will any of our Maintenance or Guest Services team members visit occupied suites for any issues other than those relating to essential services.
We recognize that these are challenging times. Like many before it, this too will pass, and together we will get through it. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. We remain at your service 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns.
