Small rooms but upgrade gracious

The original standard double room that I booked looked nothing like what is on the website. The room was tiny with two twin beds. Not suitable for two adults. However, after argueing with the front desk clerk I was able to upgrade my room to a double with queen beds. Much nicer room with more space. This is the room thats shown on the website. So although I was disappointed with the original room the upgrade was very nice and worth it. The hotel is located 3 blocks from Rogers stadium but has no parking so be prepared to pay for parking(at least $18 a day). All in all the location is good and the queen double room is very nice. Just don't get fooled by the pics on the website and make sure when booking that you get the room from the pic on the website.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

I had a lot of trouble trying to find a liquor store. On the last day I found one in Union Station located down the block and across the street from the hotel. You have to go down into the shops to locate but well worth it if you want to grab some wine, beer, etc.

Small room but perfect for our stay

The hotel is located close to the train station and only a few minutes (10-15) walk from the main shopping area in one direction and the CN Tower in the other. Everything was within walking distance from the hotel and the hop-on-off bus stopped a few metres from the hotel. Plenty of resturants in the local theatre district and around. The rooms where small but perfect for us as we were out site seeing most of the day, so only really there to sleep. But comfty beds and a lovely shower. Air con was a bit nosey, but soon got used to that. I would consider staying there again.

Unbeatable location for the price

Great location only a short walk from Eaton center and CN Tower. This hotel didn't have a pool, but when you are shopping and sight seeing that doesn't matter, as long as the weather is good.

Great location and service

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Expect Toronto to be an expensive city average transportation cost from airport to city $20 per person on shuttle coach, $55 by taxi. Tax as of Oct 2010 was at 13% added on at the tills.

good value; noise intrusive

7th floor room. 11 day stay. only major complaint extremely loud bang when any door closed in the adjacent hallway. there is a large gap between the floor and bottom of door, no insulation and heavy automatic hinge that shuts door with a bang. other guests seemingly unable to make any effort to gently close doors means forget about sleeping after 6 am.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The CN Tower is very close and subway near by was easy to understand and made other destinations very easy to get to.
