Are you vacationing in Toronto and trying to figure out your best option when it comes to a place to stay? If you are planning on being in town for a few weeks or more, then your main two options are extended stay hotels or serviced apartments. That being said, serviced apartments are usually your better bet when you are vacationing. Here’s how…
Serviced apartments are more affordable
First and foremost, it comes down to price. Despite the fact that serviced apartments usually offer more room than an extended stay hotel, they are typically less expensive. The reason for this is the reduced overhead that you have to pay for. Things like your “free” breakfast get worked into a hotel price but are not a factor for a serviced apartment. Also, because you are generally staying at a serviced apartment for a long time, they can reduce the per-day cost for you. When you are vacationing, the less you spend on housing, the more you can spend on fun things.
A serviced apartment will have the same amenities as an extended stay hotel (and usually more)
In terms of amenities, you don’t really compromise anything in terms of amenities when it comes to a serviced apartment. Maid service, 24 hour customer service, and security are all things that you get with both extended stay hotels and serviced apartments. The key difference is that you usually get everything included at a flat rate with a serviced apartment. When you are vacationing, not having to worry about these things is a huge plus.
You get more room to breathe with a serviced apartment
Even if you are travelling by yourself, having a bit of extra space is an amazing luxury. That being said, chances are good that you will be travelling with others, perhaps even your entire family, in which case added space is more than a luxury – it is a necessity. When everyone has their own space at the end of the day, it allows them to relax more and therefore makes the whole trip more enjoyable.

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.
