Excellent Location

Strathcona is a quaint hotel with a great location. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within walking distance including the Harbourfront, Rogers Centre, CN Tower, and the Eaton Centre. St. Andrew's subway station is very close to explore other parts of Toronto. The room itself was a small, but clean, and the staff was very helpful.

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.

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.

Loved the Strathcona

Despite that fact that they could not readily find my online reservation, they made it good. The location is awesome - walking distance of the harbour, fine dining and shopping. The parking situation was unpredictable and the garage entrance next door would be closed at random times. The room was exceptionally clean and that means a lot to us. The cost was very reasonable - we will definitely book there again.

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!
