Not only did I get an amazing deal, the accommodations far exceeded my expectations. Bright, modernist and newly renovated, the room was immaculate. The cozy bed w/down comforter tempted me to sleep in all day, but since the location was within walking distance from several great restaurants, the Air Canada Centre, Hockey Museum and many other attractions, it was easy...

Loved our stay here. Basically there was a large group of 10 guys out to party and have a good time from the UK. The staff had no problem giving us rooms next to each other which we preferred. As we could jump in and out of each others rooms if we needed anything. A short walk up to the... More

The hotel was fine, a little in need of a makeover perhaps, but in a nice way.... kinda Art Deco Faded Grandeur. It was clean and comfortable. The location is ok, near theatre land and St Lawrence market (worth a visit) Easy walk to the railway station but BEWARE - if you need a cab to the station you may... More

After an initial bad impression, this hotel redeemed itself to me. I had booked a room at a very good price through Hotwire for three nights and had requested a non-smoking room the day I reserved the room. I received an email reply from the hotel saying that my request had been "noted". Upon check-in at about 3pm, the charming... More

The room was spacious and nicely decorated, however the beds were extremely uncomfortable! The location cannot be beat, especially if you plan on visiting the Hockey Hall of Fame or attending an event at the Air Canada Center. The restaurant inside the hotel has decent food and the room service was quick. The area around the hotel is very quite,... More

On the bad side: Parking is almost $20 per day. The beds are horrendously uncomfortable. The housekeeping staff ignores the "Do Not Disturb" sign. Room decor is outdated and furniture is very worn. Their "Novation" concept definitely needs work. I booked a discount package deal (two nights plus buffet breakfast each morning) through the hotel's own website and when we... More

This hotel is close to where the airport coach drops you (Union Station) and so has easy access to the subway. There is an impressive lobby but rooms although spacious seem rather dull. They do however have everything you would need, and have spacious bathrooms too. The hotel has a decent sized pool and a well equiped gym that hardly... More

Stayed here for three nights on a work trip. The staff was helpful and the location was ideal. Short walk to Convention center and close to a lot of restaurants and bars. The room was great. We arrived very late at night and the restaurant stayed open late so we could eat. I would stay here again if the price... More
