I looked for cheap hotels to rest for 2 nights and most of the hotels in Toronto are too expensive. The residence is pretty nice for the price. And it is located next to the city hall downtown! We booked a two double bed room and while the AC is very noisy (waked me up until I switched it off)... More

What a great place to stay. Our team stayed there in early may. The service was great, the rooms quality matched the cost. It was a 4 minute walk away from the busiest corner in Toronto - Dundas and young - eatons center, red lobster, johney rockets, hardrock cafe, etc. Right around the corner was a starbucks, subway,grocery store and...

It is University dorm, but I was very comfortable and the staff was incredible. Great location too. Certainly not good for business, but a great place to crash for a ;few nights in Toron59.

We often stay at college/university residences when we travel in the summer, so I was not expecting luxurious accommodations and exemplary service. The members of the staff at 89 Chestnut Residence were friendly. The location of the residence is central. However, the room we stayed at was TERRIBLE - filthy is the only way to describe it. The linen seemed... More

Ninety nine dollars a night seemed like a good rate for a downtown hotel. We booked for four nights. They tried to charge $119.00 for the last 2 nights, but we got it reversed. As it was the shoulder season, we could have got a mid-range hotel in the same neighbourhood for $20 to $30 more a night. Our rationale... More

This is a former luxury hotel that has been serving as a university residence for several years, so if you're looking for luxury now, go elsewhere. But if you want a great place to stay right in downtown Toronto, just a few minutes' walk from the Eaton Centre, this is the place to stay. My grown son and I stayed... More

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.
