Radisson Hotel Admiral Toronto
From the outside, it looks like a shiny black cube. From within, standard rooms are compact but comfortable with large windows for plenty of light. Larger rooms may have fireplaces, but all have free wireless Internet access. However, the highlight has got to be the outdoor swimming pool – glamorous enough to be the location for a recent TV commercial (albeit advertising a humble microwaveable snack.)
During the summer months (subject to filming), you can take breakfast outside by the pool. The adjacent restaurant and lounge/bar area has some quirky design touches, like indoor topiary hedges. Playful humour that is sadly lacking in the other hotels on the Harbourfront.
