Garden-district comfort with easy access to Toronto's top attractions
Guests at this comfortable, affordable hotel in the heart of Toronto's garden district can leave the car at home because they simply won't need it. Business travelers and vacationers alike will appreciate the Ramada Plaza Toronto Downtown's central location. Among the many attractions within an easy 10-minute walk are Allen Gardens, Toronto Eaton Centre, Centre Islands Ferry, CN Tower and Ontario Place. Want to get there faster or go farther? Take the convenient bus or subway. There is also parking available for guests who need it (fees apply).
Highlights
  • Heritage building
  • Close to many of the city's best attractions
  • Complimentary high-speed Internet access
Location

When it's time to see the city, start with Allen Gardens, the inspiration for the garden district's name. Also, don't miss the view from CN Tower or the fascinating history of Casa Loma.

Rooms

Choose from among the Ramada Plaza Toronto Downtown's nicely decorated guest rooms and suites, all with Serta pillow-top mattresses, individually controlled heating and cooling units, large CRT or LCD televisions, in-room games and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Suites are spacious and offer separate living and sleeping areas. In some cases, they also include a dinette, mini-fridge and microwave.

Features

A number of Toronto's hottest attractions are within a leisurely 10-minute walk of the Ramada Plaza Toronto Downtown, and those that aren't are an easy bus or subway ride away. Start the day with a breakfast at on-site Shade Restaurant or a fast-paced game of squash. The fitness center and indoor pool offer two additional alternatives for sticking to your exercise routine. With 10 meeting rooms and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, this is also a great location for business.

Wonderful vacation

This is the second time I stayed at Ramada. I must say that I always have a wonderful and positive experience staying in this place. My room is always clean and in order, quiet room, comfy bed and very friendly and helpful staff. I will always stay at Ramada everytime I visit Toronto to visit friends and do art painting workshop. Best of all, rooms are larger compared with other hotels in the area.

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

Close to to the Ballpark? Please!!!

I booked this hotel thinking I would be able to walk to Rogers baseball park according to the information. Not close enough to walk it was a short subway ride. the Hotel was clean but off the beaten path in back of Yonge a few blocks and you had to go through a neighborhood. It was a ok Hotel not luxurious but do able.

motel surrounded by bums and beggars

Hotel is more like a motel. 3 star on a good day. Skip the food inside. Area not ideal since Jar vis seems to be a magnet for homeless people due to shelters on this street. Hotel itself not bad but for the price I would never stay again.

Not worth it for the price we paid

The only good thing about it was the location. It is way too pricey for what you get. I would have rather paid an extra $50 and been at a 5 star hotel. Will not go here again.

such a bad experience never again

on arrival, nothing special, but once in the room, impossible to switch on the light (had to call maintenance), temperature 16°C, ridiculous!, no chairs in the room (only 1 office chair), I had asked for a king-size and got without prior notice a (small) queen-size bed and a not asked for upgrade with a sort of sitting room.; but everything small, no central light and the other standing or side lamps inefficient The bath was very small (not even 4 square meter!), only 1 towel, the bathrobes had to be asked for, the light in the shower was not working (took them 2 days and 2 demands to fix it). The toilet paper was not renewed on time. The power outlets were or hidden behind desk, or so far away from the (miniscule courtesy) cafe maker that we had to put the cafe maker on the floor. The pool was another disaster: small, extremely shallow and fresh, the notice in the changing rooms: wash before swimming!, but no soap in the dispensers; the towels had to be asked at the reception desk, the fitness room was the size of a private fitness room, no water dispensers or paper towels. The maintenance was bad, a half used bar of (courtesy) soap was left sitting on the sink in its soap stained cup, the contraption under the sink for storing the towels (small and not soft) fell apart. The rooms were cleaned very superficially. As a test, I dropped an information leaflet from the desk, 4 days later it was still lying on the ground. never to be booked again I do not know if this is the usual situation for the Ramada hotels, but this is definitively below acceptable standard

Great unexpected amenities

I didn't expect the large amount of space! There was a separate living room area with flatscreen, cable, bar fridge and microwave, and the bedroom also had a large flatscreen, with large desk and workspace, and walk-in closet. The pool is small and shallow, the hot tub is fair, the sauna and steam room are amazing!

Family Sports Trip

We stayed again at the Ramada Plaza Hotel because it has everything we need, especially rooms with 2 queen beds, underground parking, decent rates and a good location. It is near shopping, the subway, restaurants and right across the street from the botanical garden. You can walk to the subway in 10 minutes or less, and be at the Air Canada Centre or Rogers Centre in 4 subway stops. The hotel staff is great and responds to requests in less than a minute. This was the 5th or 6th time we stayed there and we've had a positive experience each time.

It's only 2 long blocks to the subway or to Yonge Street for shopping and restaurants. It's hard to beat the location and the hotel is nice and the staff is excellent.

Friendly Staff, facilities not stellar

The staff at the front desk and the restaurant were very friendly and efficient. The room is average size (but crowded when the sofa bed is being used), very small bathroom. Clean room and bathroom. Mattresses were very uncomfortable in both beds. They were either old or worn out. Mattress in sofa bed was typical of a sofa bed--thin and uncomfortable. Parking is close by, and there were more than enough spots available, although there is an additional charge for parking (but free parking is hard to find in the downtown area). Internet is free, but is very slow. Pool is adequate, nothing fancy, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were all good. I would recommend if you are able to get a good rate.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Stay closer to the main downtown area so that you can save on parking. Parking in the downtown lots ranged from $20-$40. Parking costs much less at attractions like the science center, ROM and Casa Loma (which are not within walking distance from the main downtown area).
