The Eaton Chelsea Hotel, formerly the Delta Chelsea Toronto, is located in the Downtown Yonge area of Toronto at 33 Gerrard Street West conveniently situated close to the city's subway system between College Station and Dundas station.
The Eaton is Canada's largest hotel with 1591 rooms spread over 26 floors and with 18 elevators and numerous amenities.
Some of the Toronto Eaton Chelsea's 1,590 rooms have balconies and the rooms cater for short and long term guests, families, and business travelers. There are 44 rooms with kitchenettes and all rooms have free WiFi and modern conveniences. Free Wifi is a must when travelling with teens so after a day of running Toronto they were happy to get online and share with their friends!
The kids were enthralled with the talking robot walking around the lobby too!
Room sizes range from 275ft² to 450 ft². The Family Fun Suite is a spacious two bedroom suit with family-friendly extras like a kitchenette, a kids' creative corner, DVD and Xbox as well as bedding for bunk beds and a pull out sofa. Or you could stay in a room like we did as they were sold out of the suites-it was two bedroom with a conference room in the middle, because we were 6 it was perfect-the two teens shared one room, the two mums another and the kids used the pull out bed in the conference room. There was the added bonus for them of having a whiteboard to draw on too!!
For families the hotel boasts a Family Fun Package, it includes 1 night's accommodation, $25 food credit, parking for 1 vehicle and 2.5 hours of babysitting in the Kid Center for up to 2 children. In addition children 5 and under eat free and children 6-12 eat at half price.
The Family Zone on the 2nd floor has an indoor family pool and waterslide; the Kid Center where there are activities, Wii games and art supplies and the Club 33 Teen Lounge with Xbox 360, foosball, pool tables and arcade games.
There are strollers available for rent and supervised childcare for a small fee.
