A little small, but worth it for the night

Upon arriving to the hotel, I was blown away at how pretty the lobby was. I wish I could have explored the rest of the hotel because I would have liked to see what else they had to offer, but I was busy. The parking was overpriced, but other than that, I had a great experience.

Bachelorette crash pad

Went and stayed here for my Bachelorette, and they had rooms that fit 6 of us in beds comfortablly which was key to spiltting costs! Bathrooms are GORGEOUS! Looks like they were newly renovated. Service was great, and efficient. we needed more towels and ice, and were brought it within 15 minutes. Only thing I wasnt't he happiest about was the parking fee. It was unmentioned and 25 dollars per car, but aside from that, great time!

Great Central location

The hotel was very conveniently located for walking around Toronto, although the block it's on is slightly sketchy at night. Room was nice and clean and staff were helpful

Good for the necessities

My brother and I booked the Ramada Plaza for it's price and location. The hotel pretty much gives you what you pay for - the room and bathroom were small, and the hotel shares it's fitness center, sauna and pool area (which are also small but adequate) with condominiums. The hotel itself is simply adequate - a good place to sleep while you run around Toronto. It's a VERY short walk from the nearest subway - which is the easiest way to get around the city and get into the true "downtown" area. There is also an adorable park across the street and a Tim Horton's around the corner - which you may need to visit since the hotel offers no type of continental breakfast. The hotel restaurant was rarely busy, but the food was decent. Overall - I'd stay somewhere else next time, BUT if you are looking for a place to sleep while you traipse around Toronto - this is the place for you.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the subway at College Station to get everywhere in Toronto. It's clean and efficient, and for one fare you can ride the loop around. It's the College Station, but you get it by walking down Carlton Street, right around the corner from the hotel.

Just around the corner was an all day breakfast place (down about 4 stairs) and for $11 we needed no lunch OR dinner! Cant remember the name though!

Great for the price

Was intown for a show, the hotel was in walking distance and a good price. Room was clean. Only complaints were some noisy guests. In short what you'd expect for the price.

Average hotel.

It's a basic place to stay for a few days. The beds are the hardest and least comfortable I've ever encountered, so I'd never stay for long. The front desk staff were excellent for dining suggestions, but not at all helpful in resolving our reservation problem. We had reserved a king bed room, and when we arrived we were given an "upgrade" to a suite. But no king bed, just a smallish queen. The bedroom had barely enough space to move around the edges of the bed, a larger person would have to climb on the bed from the end. The air conditioner was less than a foot away from one side of the bed, so whoever slept on that side was bombarded with noise and a serious draft. If it was turned off for more than a few minutes, the room became so stuffy you couldn't breathe. Not an upgrade at all in my opinion and very disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Casa Loma is incredibly beautiful and well worth the cab fare; or long walk for those able to do it.
