  • Maria ceraulo wrote about the boatel several years ago with an amazing reaction. She is with buffalo news. I know she was thoroughly impressed.
  • Let us know what you end up doing, JoAnna, and enjoy Toronto. Great town.
  • The Boatel (boat bed & breakfast) is Toronto's most unique bed & breakfast and offers media rates. A night or two on a boat... how devine.
  • JoAnna, I've stayed at the Drake Hotel, which could not be quirkier, and I loved it. Sure, I was 30 years older than the next-oldest guest, but I'm open-minded. Really, I got a kick out of the carefully designed rooms and the art and the whole scene. I believe they still offer media or comped stays, too. There's a sentence or two on the place in this story as well as a link to the hotel site. http://www.tripatini.com/profiles/blogs/6-best-toronto-dining-deals

  • My husband went to Niagara on the Lake when we went to the G. B. Shaw Festival. The performances were wonderful. I do hope the younger generation does not forget how smart and funny Shaw was. Also, the town of Niagara on the Lake was delightful.
