My friends and I meet for Afternoon Tea every Christmas and like to try different places. We were excited to try the Astor Lounge for the first time. The good: The food for Afternoon Tea was great. Scones were delicious. Probably one of the better places when it comes to the food. Beautiful presentation. Staff accommodated special food requests which was greatly appreciated. Room for improvement: Tea was ok, not very strong eventhough we steeped it for almost the entire time. The service itself was just ok, wouldn’t say top notch though. Small lounge was very cold so we were uncomfortable. When we were ready to leave we noticed that other tables had also complained about the cold and were given space heaters. Considering this is supposed to be a nice hotel, the washrooms were dirty. Don’t think they were cleaned during the entire 3 hours we were there. Overall the Afternoon Tea was good, but probably not worth the $100/person (after taxes and tip). We are glad we tried it, but we won’t be returning.
