Pros: My partner & I enjoyed our one nite here! It was fun roaming the hallways examining historic fotos. Breakfast in the elegant old dining room, with big portraits of Empress Victoria looming over us, was a treat.. maple syrup on fullsome oatmeal. Be sure to explore the older lobbies, restaurants & arcades of the hotel, which are somewhat apart from the new lobby/check-in.

Cons: Nothing, the only thing I can think of is we were sad not to have stayed longer.
