When you make arrangements to stay at a luxury hotel, you expect to get the best service and have the finest amenities available to you. Unfortunately, due to overuse, the word luxury has been significantly diluted. From detergents to coffee blends, everything has a “luxury” component to it. However, there are specific standards that must be met in order for travelers to consider a hotel to be luxury. This entry will go over what you can expect from a luxury hotel like the Toronto Plaza Hotel.
What to Expect
Whether you go through a travel agent, online, by phone, or through a third party, the reservation process should be easy. You should also get all the help you want.
Once you have spent all day getting to a hotel, there is nothing worse than having to wait in a long check-in line. Waiting in lines is simply unacceptable for luxury travelers. So, when you check in to a luxury hotel, there should not be a long wait. Plus, it should take no more than ten minutes for your luggage to arrive to your room. Express or video checkout should also be offered by a luxury hotel, and they should swiftly settle any discrepancies on your bill.
The kind of room you want should be exactly what you get. When you request the following luxury accommodation, Toronto luxury hotels should be able to provide:
- A king bed (if that is what you desire)
- Your choice of physical location within the hotel
- A plunge pool if available
- Pet-friendly or handicapped room options
- The room level or category you want
Features You Will Find in a Luxury Hotel Room
In order for a place to be considered a luxury accommodation, Toronto hotels must have certain enhanced room features that come standard or are available upon request. Some of these features include
- A clock that runs quietly
- Full length mirrors, often found on a closet door
- Ability to play your own music via an iPod dock
- A room safe
- Comfortable reading chairs
- Drawers, tabletops, closet space, counters, and other adequate storage
- The ability to actually open at least one window
- The room should have different pillow types to choose from
- A natural fiber bedspread with all cotton, high quality sheets
- The default luxury travel bed is a king bed
- There should not be plastic, wipe down style wallpaper. Preferably, the walls should be stucco, wooden, adobe, or other real plaster
- With high quality furnishings, no rickety reading lamps or other cheap touches, and consistent design, the room should strike you as great the moment you walk in
- There should be great attention given to aesthetic detail
- The AC and heating systems should be easily controlled, effective, and reasonably quiet
- Free bottled water and a coffee maker should be in room
- Large flat screen TVs
- A desk of some kind
- Sufficient hangars should be available and should be detachable from the rod
- The curtains need to be able to block out the light and be made from a pleasant fabric
- Slippers and robes
- The mattress must be reasonably firm and not covered by anything synthetic
- Whether it is numbered prints, art photos, or paintings, original art should be on the walls
- Aggressive room freshener, strong cleanser, old smoke, or any other odors have no place in a luxury room
The Bathroom Must Be Luxury Too
An area of pride and scrutiny is the bathroom when it comes to luxury accommodation. Toronto hotel guests should expect enough hooks and racks in their bathroom for drying laundry cleaned by hand. High quality, fluffy terry towels are a standard feature in luxury bathrooms. Complimentary artisan or prestige toiletries that do not smell too masculine nor too feminine should be expected. And, of course, everything should be absolutely clean.
