Hostel in Upscale Area

Hotel advertised luxury and pool. No luxury,no pool. Great location - in a very upscale area - inexpensive hotel, but don't expect anything but VERY basic beds (quite thin, but new, mattress; pillows from my childhood (and I'm 57), and a ridiculous bathroom.

Terrific location, great price

A fine no-frills hotel in a spectacular location near shops, galleries, museum, restaurants. Beautiful bargain spot in the midst of luxury.

Room is dirty, light fixtures broken

We had such a hard time finding this location. Staff was friendly but didn't speak good English. When we entered the room, the floor was still dirty. We turned on the light fixtures, only 1 out of 3 was working. We reserved the room for 3 people but there were only 2 towels in the bathroom. There were no coffee machine in the room. Parking is $15 Canadian. You must deposit $50 for incidental fee up front. This hotel is include a small continental breakfast (small muffins and big croissants, coffee and orange juices). We arrived there at 10:30pm and couldn't find anything to eat, mostly close or only night club was opened so we got a piece of bread from Starbucks after 1/2 hour walk around that area. If you like the Nightlife, this will be your place, if you won't mind the room not totally cleaned, and old, contain some old building smell.

You get what you pay for

This hotel has a great location, right around the corner from the ROM, lots of upscale shopping (Versace, Calvin Klein), Whole Foods right next door, safe, busy neighborhood (even at 1am on a Monday!) If you plan to only shower and sleep in your room, then this is the place for you. Air conditioning works, and they have clean towels and sheets. Downsides are that it smells pretty old and dingy. Rooms are old and could use some updating. Walls have bubbles everywhere under the worn wallpaper. Our bathroom door did not shut all the way, so did not have total privacy. (Luckily was traveling with a good friend..so was not a big issue for us) Complimentary "breakfast" consists of orange juice, coffee, 2 kinds of muffins and croissants. $15/day to park there on sight. Staff was pretty friendly. Overall, I would go back due solely to the location and the price.

Right Price Right Location

For the price the hotel was very clean. The bathrooms appeared to be remodeled. The brick wall didn't look great, but it kept the sound down. I was by the elevator and ice machine and I slept soundly.

Stay in Howard-Johnson, Toronto, ON, Ca

We only slept in the hotel and had breakfasts. The good thing is that they provide simple breakfast. But no drinking water, which is not convenient for families with kids.

a bit expensive for what you get

The Howard Johnson Hotel was nice but not as nice as it should be for the price. In addition, we had to pay an extra $15 just to park in their parking lot.

good value

the hotel is a very good value for the money. you can expect a clean comfortable basic room, spacious, a small charming lobby, and a location in one of toronto's nicest neighborhoods. i will stay again, and recommend it to anyone.
