What are your check in / check out times?

Check in time is 4:00 pm. Check out time is 11:00 am. At check out please remember to read the check out procedures that are posted within the suite. Check out procedures will also be sent to you when your reservations are confirmed.
If you plan to arrive after regular business hours, we will make special arrangements for you to secure your keys.
An early check in can only occur if the suite was empty and cleaned the previous day. A late check out makes it impossible for us to have a suite ready for the next guest, so it is only possible by paying the late check out fee and it must be arranged in advance.

What is the Cleaning fee for?

The cleaning fee is a one-time fee. Cleaning takes place immediately after guest departure.

What are the advantages of staying with Toronto Escape rather than a hotel?

There are cost advantages with staying in furnished condo suites. On average our rates are 30 % to 50% less than hotels. Furnished suites provide you with more space and privacy than hotel rooms. Our kitchens provide you with an alternative to high priced room service meals and an “at Home” atmosphere for cooking or entertaining. This also allows travelers to save from having to buy every meal while on vacation.

What is the difference between short-term rental and hotels, do you provide shampoo and conditioner bottles?

Our short-term rental suites are fully furnished suites. They include a fully equipped kitchen, living room (with TV and Wi-Fi internet). We offer a set of clean towels for each guest as well as an initial stock of toilet paper. The difference between hotels and short-term rentals are that we offer the experience of living home away from home. We don’t offer shampoo or conditioner bottles, or day-to-day cleaning service.

What is included?

Each condo includes bedding, pillows, towels, paper towel, toilet paper, hair dryer, iron, a full kitchen with coffee maker, microwave, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, dishes, silverware, glassware, pots and pans, cooking supplies and utensils, cable TV, wireless internet, washer/dryer, heating and a/c, cleaning before and after stay, and free access to building amenities on most of our suites.
