Holiday Inn Express Toronto - Downtown

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room itself was fine but the hotel is undergoing a serious renovation with construction everywhere. You can see it was really run down. The construction is disruptive as it is in lobby and just about everywhere else. The lobby is very small and the hotel lacks basic facilities. The hotel is right next door to a church which rings its bells every hour.

This is a great hotel for the price. Also it is great for the location because it is nearby many places like the Hockey Hall of Fame, Rogers Centre (saw a Blue Jays game), Union Station, and Air Canada Centre. The breakfast in the morning was also a great touch! Staff was very great and friendly. Only negative was that the free WI-FI was spotty sometimes where I had to constantly reconnect. I think one night it was even down for a bit.

this was a nice hotel - quick walk to the hockey hall of fame, CN tower and other cool attractions.

The hotel staffs are very friendly. Very good breakfast buffet.

Everything was clean and comfortable, the staff super courteous. Not a lot of amenities, but for the price it was a great value. The location is so-so--not a lot of dining/shopping options at night on that street but again for the cost it's a very solid place to stay. Wi-fi worked great although as usual if you want decent speed you'll have to upgrade for $8/day.

Came up to Toronto for a short visit. The hotel location is convenient to the Theatre District on King St West. We attended a show at the Princess of Wales, which was a :20 walk. The hotel is also a short walk to the Eaton Centre for shopping. The room was comfortable and adequate.

Hotel was great. A little too far from the center of things, but not bad.

Wifi sucks - all hotel wifis are ripoff. Otherwise the room is clean and comfy

Hotel was not fancy, but was quite adequate and a good value for the price compared to other downtown hotels. Staff were friendly and helpful. A bit of a walk from my meeting sites (downtown financial) but certainly walkable. Overall, I would stay again and would recommend to friends.

this is great hotel in down town Toronto. any where you go is not too far away by walking. I will stay again when I am traveling in Toronto.

They could do better!!! More tourist information and better asistance.

The staff was very friendly and knowledgable of the surroundings and restaurants The daily morning breakfast at the hotel was very good. The hotel was cleaned daily we were able to use enter net without problems We had a wonderful time

Great hotel with spacious rooms and quiet excellent location. Breakfast included was great. Staff in breakfast room so friendly and helpful. Very comfortable beds.

Staff was great,i had to ask for desk chair and bed skirt be changed out because they were dirty.carpets also need a good cleaning.breakfast was nice and fresh every morning,great location walking distance to the whole city without being smack in the middle of the hustle of city life.nothing special but a descent place to stay.

Clean, affordable, great location. I would stay here again.Thank you!

We stayed at the hotel for 3 days in October to check it out and returned December 25 to January 5. We certainly will return.

Great location. Great stay. Complimentary breakfast was a bonus. Rooms are decent. not a luxurious hotel but above average. Very good overall

No fridge in room, no door seal, no door bumpers. All noise from doors slamming shut in the hall waking me up at all hours of the night. Not a good experience at all, very disappointed. Actually thought I was booking the Holiday Inn at 33 Carlton Street and only realized my mistake when the Email notice was printed out a day or so before I left. Will not stay here again. Rooms are tired. I could say more.

Overall experience was great. I would recommend the hotel to others. Pros: -Location: The hotel was located approx a mile from where we wanted to go, and we were able to walk from/back to hotel very easily. It was a fairly nice neighborhood. -Parking: It was $20 for 24hrs, which seems to be very reasonable for TO. Cons: -The sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable, the foot-end of the mattress kept falling though the wires.

Hotel was okay, very friendly check in staff but the best thing is the location in older part of Toronto, which was awesome and close to St Lawrence Market and great restaurants. Also close enough to walk to most downtown attractions.
