Average Hotel

Overall not a bad hotel. However, parking is $25 dollars a night, $12 for breakfast and really slow wifi. The lobby was really nice and inviting along with a very friendly staff. One more downfall is if you drive a bigger vehicle the parking ramp will be difficult for you.

Weekend Stay in Toronto

The Best Western Primrose was good for our short weekend trip, it's located near downtown and near many interesting touristy spots. Super comfy beds it's always a plus!

OK hotel but poor service

Staff seemed bored and give poor information regarding parking availability - - there was none but because of misinformed staff had to wait half an hour to find out about it. Specifically requested two beds but given room with one. When expressed frustration to front desk regarding because of this it took us an hour to get checked in, did not even receive an apology.

Don't let the inexpensive prices fool you!!

This hotel was a great value and a very nice place to stay. I was in Toronto for a Daughtry concert (love that band) at Massey Hall, with three friends and we were all pleasantly surprise at how nice the hotel was. We stayed two nights. There is a workout room on the 3rd floor which a nice man I met in the elevator told me about. He said he loved it, though we didn't use it. A Tim Hortons in the lobby makes a morning run for coffee and treats an ease. We had a 21st floor view facing downtown and could see the cn tower. Amazing. The room was lovely with free WiFi!! Parking below the building for only $23 a night. The location is a few blocks east of Yonge St. Once on Yonge it's about halfway between Eaton Center and Yorkville. We walked to both. It's a slightly longer walk to Queen St. but that's the only way to get around Toronto in my opinion. I thought the room was lovely - great pillows, beds were comfy and nicely decorated. Only two doubles, not queens, but that was fine for us as we were all small people. A king is available. There is a restaurant at the hotel which looked nice but we did not visit. The staff at the front desk were great. At night there was someone in the lobby to ask to see room keys to make sure we were supposed to be there. I liked that kind of security. When we called the front desk for extra towels they were delivered promptly and a maid in the hallway also brought us some. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Toronto!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Mr Greenjeans was a nice restaurant - moderately priced in Eaton Center. Loved the burgers at the Black Bull pub on Queen St. Fun pub atmosphere - great fries. A longer walk from the hotel. The Hard Rock on Yonge St. is always fun in any city. We just happened to bump into the two guitarists from Daughtry!!

Satisfactorily Average in an Above Average City

It was being renovated when I originally went which caused for at least a 15 minute wait to get on an elevator....don't even think about taking the stairs, those were blocked off. The staff when I arrived was rude, and not helpful, but after that they all seemed quite friendly, and helpful. If you're looking to rarely spend time in the rooms like I did, they were perfect. Comfortable but nothing spectacular. The location was really good, it took me maybe 10 minutes to get to Yonge Street which has a lot of shops and hustle and bustle.

Good Value for Money

My recent trip to Toronto had be staying at the Primrose hotel. I booked here because they offered a really good price and were in a central location. The staff were very helpful and were quick to offer directions and dining options. The restaurant was good for breakfast and there was lots of variety on the buffet. I would go back again.
