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!
