The Ibis Amsterdam Centre Hotel #fail. The best things about the Ibis Amsterdam Centre for my friend and I was the close proximity to everything we wanted to do as tourist, and our clean and more modern hotel room. We stayed in room 586 at the end of the hall. It had a view of the train tracks, and the noisy rail systems could be drowned out by keeping the windows closed. 

However, starting from least annoying to most annoying are the following:

1. No tea kettle or coffee maker, or iron in the rooms at this Ibis. You have to borrow these items from the front desk. No refrigerators are supplied at all.

2. The cleaning staff does not do a good job with making your bed. They pretty much just cover up your bed with the duvet haphazardly, and don't change sheets or pillowcases unless you specifically ask.

3. The wi-fi was abysmal in room 586. If you could connect it was slow, and it would drop constantly. 

4. The cleaning service leaves their cleaning bins out in the open right next to our room when they are done for the day, and then noisily collect them at around 8a:m every morning. A noisy eye-sore to say the least.

5. The room this Ibis uses to hold your suitcases (should your room not be ready when you arrive) is insufficiently monitored. They allow travellers to self-check their suitcases in and out of the room. They have a man posted about 8 metres from the room who keeps an eye on the entry and exit, however he cannot see every angle of the room. They have a visible camera in the room at a viewing angle that I strategically placed my luggage near (more on this in a minute). 

The fourth point leads me tell of my experience with the luggage room. 

The lock on my suitcase was missing when I took it out. I had made sure my bag was locked with the combination lock before I left the luggage room. The bag had only been in the room for about 45 minutes. My friend's suitcase was fine. Panicked, I took the luggage upstairs to our room and took everything out. Thankfully, nothing was missing. However, I still had a missing lock, and realized that perhaps there was a thief somewhere around. When I spoke to the manager on duty "Sacha" she said she would review the camera footage and get back to me, but she would not be able to release any information about any persons, or details of what happened. Sacha did not follow up with me directly. I had to then speak to another manager "Geoffrey" later in the day. He said that Sacha had not seen anything on the camera footage, because the camera was "out of view" (remember I had put my luggage within view of the camera on purpose). Geoffrey was quite condescending. He dwelled on the fact that nothing was missing, and "why would a thief take a lock off and not continue"? The answer to that is perhaps he/she didn't have time. How would I know? Geoffrey was quite unconcerned with the implications of what had happened, and didn't make a convincing argument that the camera was even working, otherwise how could my luggage be "out of view"? When I asked for reimbursement for my lock if I went and bought another one, he flat out refused. 

I contacted the Accord customer service via social media and by email, and after some initial back forth, I haven't heard back from them regarding their own inquiry into the incident. 

I wouldn't stay here again, and I don't recommend this hotel when staying in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Do not choose room 586. As a matter of fact, just stay at the Doubletree Hilton.

If you live in Toronto, and don't want to drive all the way out to Missisauga use Marty from Autodent.ca. Marty came to my condo garage, and did an excellent job removing the quarter sized dent from the hood of my BMW after a small bottle had dropped on it from a second floor veranda. It took him about an hour and forty-five minutes. The hood, and the paint are as good as new, and I didn't have to drive anywhere to get the job done. Highly recommended!

I've gone twice to this King Street West location in 2015 and I can say the food, service, and ambiance is consistently good. The lobster, king crab, and steaks are all winners, and so are all of the appetizers. The ice cream cake is great too. Make a reservation if you plan on going, but the best area to be in is the bar seating area. For some reason they can't guarantee reservations there however.

Went to America Restaurant in the Trump Hotel Toronto on Dec 22 2014, and sat at the bar. The $15 cocktails were tasty, but the pink lighting did nothing for the food which was lackluster and unimaginative. Seriously, the $55 steak came with a unrecognizable stuffed tomato, and the frites were extra (which I thought were ordered but never arrived). We had to take pictures with a flash to see what were were actually eating. As well the green pasta, shrimp, and squid dish was uninspiring. Go for the cocktails, but stay away from this seriously food-failing spot. The blue lighting in the dining room was no better for viewing what you were actually putting in your mouth either.

They offer professional hair extensions, weaves, and beauty salon hairstyles with 100% real human hair, and 100% virgin Remi cuticle hair. They have specialized in micro-links, hair braiding, and hair bonding extensions for the past 12 years. They also have some of the best human hair available for sale right in their salon, and the selection is quite large.

Ordered the Barque Smokehouse barbeque food online and it is terrible. The meat is NOT tender and flavorful, and is covered in a smoky tasting sauce that you can buy off the self. The Barque Smokehouse fried chicken looks the same colour as the brisket, but is over battered with crap, AND still tastes like you might as well be eating a rubber glove. The shoe-string fries are overdone and tastes weirdly of "cinnamon". Barque Smokehouse even has an arugula salad that has only arugula, caramel popcorn, and an unidentified vegetable in it! Please put a fork in this restaurant and consider it done.

I loathe this Metro. Their house packaged meats are always spoiled. You can't smell it in the store, but when you get it home the chicken or beef always smells diseased. I wish they would leave Liberty Village and another grocer comes in and takes their place. My latest experience on Dec 23 at around midnight is this: Went to the Metro store at 12:15am to do some last minute grocery shopping. I got about four items, and went to the checkout where there was an employee named "Daniel". He rang up my totals and I asked him if they still did cashback. He asked how much and I said a hundred dollars. He asked for my Air Miles card, and I gave it to him, he asked if I needed bags and I said yes. I then paid by debt card, and left. I drove about 10 city blocks to my home and then proceeded to pay the babysitter with the $100 and realized I didn't receive it. I also did not sign for the money. I got back into my car and drove back to the Metro. I told "Georgina" what happened and she paged overhead for Daniel who was already conveniently gone from the store (even though she said he usually hangs around after his shift). I asked to speak to the manager, and she said I would have to come back in the morning. I asked when, and she said the manager does not come in early so she doesn't know when I should come in. Basically I don't have my money and I don't know when I'll be getting it because it will require some effort to back track the longer this is not sorted out. So I have to take time off to go in and sort this all out before the holidays, all because I was not diligent enough and the employee Daniel didn't do the job he was paid to do.
