Dine at the 360 restaurant at the CN building. Not cheap, but the food is good, the staff friendly and the views are fantastic.

Perfect spot if you just need a comfortable room for sleeping

The rooms are small. If you're ok with that, this hotel is in a perfect location and the price is right. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. We stayed in an "executive queen" and furnishings, bathroom etc..had been recently refurbed. Bare bones, nothing fancy, but clean. Room was quiet as well. Overall, if you want to be close to harbourfront, entertainment district, CN Tower etc..it's your best value. The overall 4 rating is for the location/value.

Reviving the Islamic Spirit

The Strathcona Hotel is an excellent hotel located in downtown Toronto. The staff was extreamly helpful. The hotel was part of an agreement with the MTCC Convention Center, so we had an affordable rate along with free wi-fi for the weekend, and a extra cot for free.

Nice stay.. again!

Last time we stayed in the suite which was HUGE and amazing, but this time we took an executive room. The rooms are rather smaller and european like but the bed, furniture and TV are all brand new and very nice! Best of all this hotel is in a WONDERFUL location steps from everything exciting in TO and the rooms are very reasonably priced. If you're planning to be out on the town a lot the size of the room really doesn't matter too much! I will definitely stay there again!

Great Hotel

The Strathcona Hotel is conveniently located downtown Toronto near the Financial district and Union Station. Union Station on the Yonge subway line was a transfer point for other trains. It was within walking distance of the CN Tower, Harborfront, St. Lawrence Marketplace, Hockey Hall of Fame, Rodgers Stadium, and RBC Tower with a food court located on the lower level of Front Street. The room was a bit small, but just right for me. The staff was courteous and friendly. I would return to this hotel and recommend it to others.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

It's advisable to purchase Citipass on line. which gives access to 5 attractions such as the CN Tower, Casa Loma, ROM etc. No waiting on line - easy access to enter these locations.
