I was not impressed with this hotel for many reasons. Firstly, no hotel parking. I had to drive couple of blocks away from the hotel to park in a private parking lot and walked back to the hotel in a very cold weather. My king size jacuzzi room was so small that I could barely move around freely. The location... More

Overall not terrible. Room was clean and check in was quick. Rooms were larger than previous places I have stayed recently. The fridge kept items cold and the breakfast selection was average. I picked this hotel due to its proximity to the large hospital nearby and would stay again. Carpets are a little tired and stained but this is not... More

The room was filthy. Couldn't use the tub it was so gross. Smelt like dirty body odour in the whole building. I will never go back.

I stayed one night and was completely freezing. The guy at the front desk informed me that they have a deal with their energy company and do not turn the heat on until the end of October. There are two very thin blankets and a sheet on the bed. Last night was close to zero degrees and I slept with... More

We were forced to stay here as we had a leak in our apartment's ceiling, and it was a nightmare. It was overpriced and incredibly dirty. You could hear the noise outside, the room was tiny, and absolutely filthy. Spend a bit more money and avoid staying in HELL.

I am writing this review early this morning because this has been a sleepless night due to passenger metro trains passing all through the night then by 5a it was every 3-5 minutes. This room should not be offered and if at a much discounted rate! The room (#212) is smaller than a cruise cabin. We are supposed to have... More

After reading some of the reviews of this hotel, I was terrified of staying here while in Toronto for some playoff games. We have been to Toronto before, staying right downtown so we were wary about this neighborhood. Let me start by saying that 90% of the poor reviews are because of parking. There is no onsite parking, barely somewhere... More

Staff were nice but hotel needs upgrading. Good location but don't expect a lot from the rooms. Parking is a 5 minute walk away. Not too bad most of the year but would suck in January,February.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
