My husband and I were in Toronto to visit family and friends and to take part in the Scotiabank Waterfront Half Marathon. We knew we didn't want to have the downtown big city hotel experience and were looking for a cozy little nest to come back to at the end of each busy day. We found that in the Willow Suite located on the top floor. Anne-Marie (and others) have already said it all in their recent reviews regarding how wonderful By the Park and the hosts are so I'll just add a few notes. Being a runner, it was lovely to be able to put on my running shoes and head down the street a block to run in the gorgeous 400 acre High Park. Upon the night of our arrival at 9:00 PM we were greeted by Margo & Ziggy then shown to our room by Ziggy. Not yet having had dinner, Ziggy filled us in and recommended a couple of neighbourhood restaurants. We chose Latinada (Cuban cuisine (which some say is an oxymoron!)) with great live music. On top of that, the food was yummy. While we had a rental car and took advantage of the parking available, we found the proximity to the subway ideal when we wanted to head downtown. All in all, we had a lovely 5 day stay and will definitely be returning guests!
