Le Germain in Toronto

My Toronto accommodation was booked for me a couple of months before the actual trip. This being work-related, I assumed I only had the usual uninspiring Hiltons and Sheratons to choose from (the latter being the then booked option). 

Then I read Kate's wonderful recap of her stay in Nashville

Which is how I landed at the Le Germain - a beautiful boutique hotel located on a quiet street in the Entertainment District in downtown Toronto.
Notwithstanding the ugly carpeting, I adored my room. Lucky I did, since I spent most of the day in it logged on remotely at work.

Unlike my usual coffee breaks, the ones that week involved playing around with the in-room Nespresso, with CNN/ BBC News blaring in the background...

...and on a particularly bad afternoon, a nice long bubble bath..

Since I spent a great deal of time in bed whilst on the phone with home, crying into the pillows, I was glad they were plush. As one who never strays from their side of the bed throughout the night, it felt oddly comforting being smothered by so much bedding.
