Union station is very close to the hotel and gives access to the rest of the city via the TTC. Dont get caught in traffic. In Toronto transit is far quicker.

For the price it was just ok.

The experience was ok, but it was nothing to write home about. The room was smaller than expected, especially given that it was labeled as an "Executive" room, but not uncomfortable. However I had to big problems that shouldn't have been an issue. First, the hotel makes you sign a no noise policy which sounded great. But, it didn't make much different given the sound proofing in the rooms. My room was a cross from the stairway door. The door to my room was shut in that no person could get through it, but that didn't stop light and sound. With the door closed Light freely came through near the frame. That was likely where the sound also came through all night and morning as people went in and out of the stairwell loudly closing the door. The windows weren't much better. I was 12 floors up, but could hear the sounds of the street as if I was on the first floor. My second issue was when I entered the room. Upon going into the bathroom, I noticed a wet, dirty cotton swab on top of the wall mounted shampoo dispenser. It looked like a disposable cotton cloth used for removing eye makeup, especially because it had black smudges all over it. Whatever it was, regardless if it was from a prior guest or the cleaning staff, it should not have been left in my shower. The price, for that area was good, but I wont be staying there again given my experience.

Not bad for the price...

Overall, decent experience. There was only valet parking available. The hotel staff didn't tell us about the amenities or breakfast time or even check out time. The room was nicely laid out and appealing. However the rooms are not carpeted and is a bit louder between floors. We also found a sock left from the last guest.... location was good, but construction made it hard to find.

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.
