Good week getaway

This is my favorite hotel in Toronto I stay here a lot when I come to this city. But I have to look for deals because it can get pricey at times. This hotel works for me because of its location. I walk down the street for breakfast for haft the price of hotel. All around I do like this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

take your time so much to see around town is a very rewarding experience . love this city so much i did not want to leave. niagna fall was the best . the fun land is a little disapointment because you have to pay so much for water you could die from thirsts i would not recomend the funland unless you have money to spend. bring plenty of water with you and hope you do not faint from heats but have fun the ride is a thrills a sec, and now for the shows best of all very entertaining love every moment will never forget the memory of a life time.

Price was Perfect

Was going to stay at the airport area but got a great price at the Primrose Hotel which is right in Downtown. The hotel was great. The room was really nice and very large. The beds were amazing and so comfortable. The staff were really nice and let us check out late on our last morning. The place is great. Right in the middle of the city and priced within a single mother’s budget.

Good Stay

Recently stayed at the Primrose hotel in downtown Toronto. The hotel is in a good location within walking distance of most places. There are lots of restaurants nearby as well as shopping. The rooms are very nice with a modern décor and the staff are friendly. I would definitely return in the future.
