I enjoyed the cleanliness of the room, the location and the quiet atmosphere. The hotel is under renovation so this could be a problem with the elevator if there was a crowd. When I stayed, it was quiet so there was no problem at all. I did have a problem closing the drapes in the room. While I did check...

I spent 5 days at the hotel. The breakfast is simple but good. The price is fear. Location is good.I recommend the hotel to others. All shops and restaurant are in walking distance. Easy to use metro few blocks from the hotel. I rent car for one day and it was very simple to park at the hotel.

We came for 2 nights to see a concert. The hotel is being renovated, it definitely needs it. Our room didn't even have a fridge. Lots of noise, elevators aren't working. Beds are still comfy and it's close to downtown and Breakfast is edible. In my opinion they should just shut down while renovating, it's a headache!

This was the only hotel that had 5 rooms available on the night needed. The hotel had decent parking available which is hard to always provide downtown. Rooms and hallways were a little dated but overall very clean. Breakfast was excellent. We had a room on the 8th floor so noise from the street was minimal. It is pricey for...

This place is over priced for the condition of the hotel. I paid $180 for a queen room on the 16th floor. The hallway carpet could be pulled up easily, I tripped on it 😕. The carpet was stained. The elevators were slow and dingy. The bathrooms were out dated. Breakfast was nothing special. The night before I paid $130...

In the heart of downtown Toronto, close to Chinatown and other areas of interest, this hotel offers great location, but little else. The hotel is currently undergoing a much needed renovation and I hope it includes updating the faded and worn carpets, peeling wall paper, and dated bathrooms. No renovation will fix the lack of parking. Max height in the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
