As the recipient of the Consumers’ Choice Award Toronto (CCA) for the sixth consecutive year, DelSuites proudly continues to strive for excellence in the Furnished Condo Rental category in Toronto.
The CCA, which was presented to the DelSuites team on May 29th, 2014 at the Liberty Grand, is based on surveys completed by consumers and businesses on opinions, perceptions and expectations regarding the services they choose on a daily basis. Ledger Marketing, the leading market research firm is mandated to conduct the surveys on behalf of the Consumers’ Choice Award Institute.
The Consumer Choice Award’s logo is considered the “seal of excellence” used to identify only those businesses who have been chosen as outstanding service.
“DelSuites is honoured to receive this award,” shares DelSuites’ Director of Sales Cliff Norton, “as a team we place great emphasis on enhancing the customer experience of every single guest whilst they reside at any of our properties.” Norton adds that “we would like to thank our guests for their continued support of DelSuites and we will continue to place our guests at the forefront of every decision that we make.”
DelSuites’ consistency in receiving the Consumers’ Choice Award Toronto is not only an indication of the high-business standards but also a testament to the level of appreciation we have for our guests.

Working with the right long-term housing professional can be the difference between finding the best accommodations and having more trouble than it’s worth. But if you don’t know which credentials to look for, deciding on the best person to work with you or your staff can be a daunting task.

Whether you’ll be living away from home for a month or longer, learning to be flexible with your living arrangement is a part of the process. While you can likely get used to different furniture or kitchen appliances, maintaining a safe living environment for your whole family is top priority. From downtown condominiums to suburban dwellings, DelSuites takes safety very seriously, which is why guests have access to a variety of safety features from baby gates to cabinet locks to electrical outlet plugs to childproof your home. Along with the safety features, here are three ways to keep everyone safe and feeling right at home.
Spout It Out
Let’s face it there is nothing worse than having your child knock their head, face or teeth on spout of your bathtub while splashing around. Not only can this be a very painful accident but it’s also a totally avoidable one. Spout covers are available through guest services which can help make bath time a fun and familiar evening activity for everyone.
From your television to lamps to your laptop, cords and cables can be tough to get around. Especially when you’re not in your usual surroundings, children can easily forget where they are and trip over cords or wires that they don’t realize exist. For toddlers and younger children especially, keep cords and cables from the same electronic devices fastened together with a few nylon cable ties. Make it easier on your whole family by keeping additional devices such as laptops, in one area so that that no one gets tripped up by surprise.
As a parent, you’ll know the rooms in your own home that present the most safety issues. When you’re in a new place, check out those areas first before you allow your children to roam freely. Check the windows and doors and request additional child safety systems from guest services if you’ve got a more adventurous child. It’s also wise to check the shelves in closets and open bookcases and remove heavier items that may fall.

It’s a tough job but someone has to do it. Actually it’s not only someone but a whole team of individuals who unite in a joint effort to give you the experience of a lifetime. From the moment each guest arrives, until the moment they bid farewell, the DelSuites’ staff team is working diligently to ensure that individuals and their families are having the very best experience. Whether you’re checking in to a fully-furnished rental suite for a week or longer, you can relax in the comfort that can be found in your home away from home.
Even before your day begins, the guest services team is responding to emails, verifying schedules and generally planning their day before they hit the office. As part of the joint effort, each team member monitors a 24-hour guest service’s hotline (including evenings and weekends) to ensure your needs are always met.
When it comes to maintaining well-appointed suites, it’s not only up to the cleaning staff. Each guest services team member is in touch with housekeeping supervisors, to review the schedules and ensure that arrival, departures and guests’ special requests are completed in a timely manner. Special requests might mean that housekeeping staff are required to handle emergency cleanings that require additional staff assistance. Through regular communication between housekeeping supervisors and guest services, we are able to provide a high-quality standard of cleaning each and every time.
From sourcing replacement electronics to selecting custom furnishings, the staff at Delsuites makes it a priority to ensure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable. In fact, it’s through their direct contact with guests that team members gather a sense of the items that will make life away from home, even better for everyone.
While most days it may be a little hectic for guest services staff, there’s certainly never a dull moment. In fact, for many staff, it’s the diverse nature of the job that keeps them energized each day. Similar to the backstage of a concert or theatre performance, you never really know what goes on behind the scenes but when all goes according to plan, it makes for one incredibly memorable experience.
