St. George Toronto Hotel Review: Great Location in The 6

St. George Toronto Hotel Review is part of the TPOL in Canada Trip Report.


Getting There: From YYZ, I took the train to the subway station. Read the Transport Toronto post.


Another night, another stay certificate (see Stay Certificates: Saving Thousands in NY and Gild Hall NYC: Category 4 in Manhattan). This time it was IHG. With the expiration date approaching on this last cert under the old rules (see IHG Free Night Devaluation: Still Not As Bad As Club Carlson), I looked for the best option in my immediate travel plans.

Unfortunately, those plans didn’t include another trip to Tahiti where I burnt my cert last time (see Maximized! IHG Rewards Free Night in Tahiti). Instead, I stayed at the Kimpton St. George hotel in Toronto.Kimpton St George Toronto Hotel Review

Location

If you like upscale dining and shopping, you’ll love the location of the St. George hotel. It is a short stroll to my favorite Toronto suburb, Yorkville.a building with a rainbow flag

Room

I’m terrible at optimizing my cert stays. I had the same issue with Hilton (see Hilton Weekend Certificate: Not Worth the 10k Spend). Here, the room was nice enough but obviously not an overwater bungalow.a framed picture on a wall a bed with white sheets and a lamp in a room a bedroom with a bed and a bench a room with a bench and a closet a chair and table in a room a desk with a television on the wall

Bathroom

I didn’t really care for the bathroom at the IC Le Moana Bora Bora. This one was good enough.a bathroom with a sink and shower a group of glass cups on a table a shower with white tiles a shower with white tile walls and white bottles a group of white bottles with dispensers in a gold basket

Amenity

I was given a $15 voucher to be used on the mini bar. Stella anyone? a tray of food and drinks on a table a paper with black text on it a refrigerator full of bottles and cans

HBO GO?

I tried to use the clever streamcast feature but could not get it to work.a screen shot of a television

The View

I’ll continue to make the unfair comparison by saying the view of the street didn’t compare to the ocean.a city with buildings and cars

Overall

This was a nice hotel but it’s not the optimal use of an uncapped stay certificate. Fortunately, I won’t have to feel the angst of not making an ideal redemption since Chase and IHG devalued the certificate.
