Baseball trip

We were in Toronto for one night in July and attended a Blue Jays baseball game. The walk to the Rogers Center was extremely quick and the hotel is located in a great area.

An OK place..

The location of the hotel is great for getting to the subway. The rooms are very small and very noisy but clean. The walls are thin and mattresses are very loud. Staff at the front desk were not very helpful when it came to giving directions or making suggestions for places to eat/things to do. One bonus was that they gave us free wifi.

Weekend Stay

Very nice, modern hotel. In a great location, we walked everywhere. Nice and close to the Rogers Centre (why we came to Toronto), CN tower etc. Rooms are small, but it's comfortable and we were only in the room to sleep basically. Would possibly stay again.

Fantastic

Although this hotel has small rooms, it is very clean and modern. Perfect location. Staff very friendly and no hassle over an early check in. If you are planning to stay in room a lot, it maybe a little cramped for space. Would book here again, a clean place to lay your head and freshen up.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Found out too late, that could have used the underground. Was extremely cold when we stayed and this would have been excellent.

Great location!

This hotel is ideally located for everything downtown. Union Station just across the street and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre a block away. My friend and I had a room with two beds. We were a bit surprised the beds were actually twin beds instead of the usual double beds. The room was super small but for the price, it was fine.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Loose Moose Restaurant and Pub on Front Street has a great pub style menu. The nachos are mountainous!!! Just a very short walk from the Strathcona. Joe Badali's is also there if Italian is what you're looking for.
