With 1,590 rooms, the Chelsea is the largest hotel in the city. And it is something of a crowd-pleaser. It's handily located downtown near the Eaton Centre and the City Hall. The restaurants run the gamut from food court to fine dining, and the hotel has an affiliation with a nearby spa. The hotel is child-friendly in the extreme, with a well-equipped childcare centre, dedicated family suites with bunkbeds and kitchens, plus a huge water slide dropping into the all-ages pool. But it's also great for parents: there's an adults-only pool, which adjoins a fitness centre and a drinks lounge. The decor ranges from drab to comfortable, but there are bathrobes for all.
