    This was my fourth stay at this hotel, but my first since it left the Delta "fold." The good news: It's not all that different. The desk staff are responsive, housekeeping is excellent, and the rooms are much as they were. And, unlike other respondents on another site, I had no problem with the WiFi over a five-night stay. The location remains more or less unbeatable, with ready access to Yonge Street, and a passel of restaurants behind the hotel on Elm Street. The less good news: The "Market Garden" food center is still wildly overpriced -- and, if you go at an off hour, you might have to wait five minutes or so for the cashier to return from wherever. The "Bb33 Bistro" in the front of the hotel, where they used to offer a breakfast buffet, has been closed -- the space is rented out for special events -- and replaced with another restaurant, towards the rear (the Elm Street side) that's even more fiendishly overpriced. (I did not try it.) Finally, the "Blue" elevator bank that serves the uppermost floors -- where I was booked -- includes six elevators, but no more than three were working at any given time. This sometimes produced massive delays, with the three working elevators frequently stopping at nearly every one of the upper floors; and it left hordes of people waiting for those elevators in the lobby. (This was particularly trying in the late afternoons, when, it seemed, a fair number of airline personnel would be checking in.) I'd thought there might have been a mechanical problem, but no: it was not always the same three elevators that were functioning! If this is a management decision to save money, it's pennywise and pound-foolish. Certainly I'll think twice about staying on an upper floor here again.
