Are you traveling to Canada? Finding family-friendly places to stay in another country is a little bit more challenging. We found a gem of a hotel in Toronto, Canada which is actually the largest in all of the country!
Your kids will thank you for bringing them to this hot spot in Toronto.
We received a night stay as media in exchange for sharing about our experience as Chelsea Eaton Hotel guests. All opinions expressed are my own and my families.
Canada’s Largest Hotel the Eaton Chelsea Hotel
This summer we decided that we were going to take our family out of the United States to Canada for a quick visit from New York. We searched the internet and discovered Chelsea Hotel.
As Canada’s largest hotel, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto offers 1,590 contemporary guest rooms and suites for business travelers and tourists. Just driving up this this location in downtown Toronto was an adventure with our kids with all of the tall buildings!
We loved the location which was easy to find and conveniently close to the attractions in Toronto.
Mom tip: Due to it’s size there were a few times when waiting for the elevator it took a little bit more time so plan accordingly if you’re on a tight schedule.
Variety of Room Sizes Available
The hotel manager took me on a tour of the entire Chelsea hotel which was completely amazing to the variety of spaces available for visitors. They have your typical hotel rooms with King beds and 2 Double beds but they also have a studio kitchenette, a one bedroom suite and their quite popular family fun suite.
Be sure to book early if you want the Family Fun Suite, they get reserved quickly.
Family Fun Zone
The highlight of our stay at Chelsea Hotel was the Family Fun Zone. The Family Fun Zone consisting of an indoor family pool, 130 ft ‘Corkscrew’ waterslide, Kid Centre and Club 33 Teen Lounge. The fact that the Corkscrew waterslide goes in and out of the building was just simply awesome!
Typically as you know at hotels kids are not the featured guests but at Chelsea Hotel kids are most definitely the featured guests. The kids have their own special check-in counter where they receive a little welcome package.
There was even a robot who interacted with kids in the lobby when we were checking in plus a popcorn station too.
Guests can bring their child to play in the play space at the Kid Centre. Plus Child Care is available at the Family Fun Zone as well. How cool is that!
Need a little escape from the kids… Club Room guests can enjoy access to the exclusive E-Club Lounge on the 27 floor for adults only which gives you amazing views on the city too.
Choices of Restaurants
As we searched for what to eat after check-in we discovered that there are quite a few options available to guests within the hotel itself. Which after driving for a good portion of our day I was glad to keep the car in the parking garage and find a spot to eat.
For breakfast, we did buffet style and headed outdoors to the patio dining area which was so beautiful.
Chelsea Hotel, Toronto serves a range of cuisines, cocktails and culinary delights in the four dining venues:
- Market Garden and express|o Coffee Bar: Casual and convenient, Market Garden is the one-stop solution for busy travelers.

Vij Family Review
The Eaton Chelsea Hotel was a welcomed hug after a very long road trip where the kids felt that they were a special guest. It was so refreshing to be able to kick back and enjoy the hotel itself with the kids.
The pool area and playroom kept them entertained and created some great opportunities for family time together, which is exactly why we took our vacation.
Our room had been recently remodeled and had some terrific views of the big city. The kids loved it.
We look forward to returning again in our traveling adventures. Thank you so much to Eaton Chelsea for inviting us to be your guest.
