Michel Germain and I travel often. It's the nature of our business. We keep in touch with our clients; drop by to say hello to our staff; and investigate new fragrance oils that will go into our up and coming scents. All this travel means a lot of hotels.
The Weston Harbour Castle is one of my favourite spots to stay in Toronto. Right downtown, we can often walk or grab a short ride by taxi to our meetings. Any hotel that saves on Michel and my commute time rates A1 in my books.
The rooms are impeccably clean (I'm known to be a clean fanatic. That's the price you pay when you are a mother of three boys ... you're always reminding someone to pick up their football gear, hockey bag, e.t.c.. After the 100th reminder, being a clean fanatic is just another part of your personality.)
The views from the rooms are a breath of fresh air. Michel and I prefer to overlook the harbour. Can you blame us? After spending a day among the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto (for those of you who have never been, it's like a small corner of New York's center); it's a calming change to overlook the waterfront. And, unlike many major cities' waterfronts, this waterfront had a refreshing blue colour, not a depressing brown/green hue. Love it.
These two pictures were taken on a recent trip just before the frost hit the trees, denuding them of their billowing green frocks. Planes were landing, boats were sailing, and Michel and I were mesmerized by the view. We momentarily forgot that Toronto's center lay just behind us.
|The sailboats are small from here, actually so is the plane.|
|Love seeing a plane flying at eye level.|
So, if you are ever in Toronto, and you are looking for a place to stay, you might want to check out the Weston. Who knows, we might run into each other in the lobby.
