Sheraton Gateway - Toronto Airport
Toronto, ON L5P 1C4 CA

There is one feature that absolutely makes the Sheraton Gateway - Toronto Airport hotel worthwhile - it's *in* the airport.
Yes, you literally walk across an enclosed pathway from the hotel into Terminal 3 (you can also take the monorail to Terminal 1 without going outside).
If you have an early flight, this is worth the price of admission on its own. You can even check-in to some airlines from kiosks in the lobby.
Rates on our night started at $169 but dropped to $99 with AAA/CAA membership.
The only other negative, which must be mentioned, was that the price of all food and beverage was somewhat outrageous. Knowing you are captive in the airport, the hotel sees fit to charge $9 for a pint of beer, $14 for a glass of wine, and $21 for a pizza at the bar (the most "casual dining" option available). The pizza was a good one, though. In the morning, there is no small coffee bar/pastry option. It is expected you'll pay for a full breakfast starting at around $17. And forget free Wi-Fi as has become commonplace in, at the least, hotel lobbies. You'll be paying $18 for a day's use here.
As an aside, you can get a grab-and-go style breakfast across the walkway in Terminal 3 for a reasonable price.
Overall, the Sheraton Gateway - Toronto Airport hotel is recommended for those flying from Toronto's Pearson Airport as it is extremely convenient and well-kept (see the pictures). I just feel the rest deserves fair warning.
