Overall very clean and freshly decorated rooms albeit expensive. No internet or breakfast included. Also, the fact that there is not even a gym or pool slightly irritates me. The verdict: stay here if "comfy bed" and "nice room" are the only two things on your need list. Also plan to have some extra cash lying around as I encourage... More

Room was small but very clean and had everything you need for a short stay. Staff were very friendly. It was the Best location ever as you could walk to everything. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Toronto for a short stay.

The hotel was located near parking, transit, the ACC and multiple restaurants. The room was fairly small but clean and large enough for the two of us. The AC worked very well and the staff were very friendly. Unfortunately the Wifi was extra and breakfast was not included, however there was a Tim Hortons across the street with Wifi and... More

Excellent location. Very small room. Unfriendly reception staff. I witnessed one of the recepcionists being rude to one guest. Travelling in Canada and staying in several hotels, the only one without free internet access. The room was not very well cleaned.

I was very surprised at how small the room was. The only thing to sit on was a stool and the bed. When I went back to the front desk they upgraded us and knocked 10.00 off the upgrade. The upgrade got us a desk chair and a desk in the wall. That being said the room was clean and... More

The room we got was on the small side but pretty much what we expected. The room we had was fitted with a TV and quite a broad range of TV channels, an iron, ironing board and air con. We had to pay an extra $10 CAD for the wifi which was okay for laptops but for smart devices such... More

Stayed here recently for congress at the convention center. Super convenient short walk. Lobby trendy, rooms tiny but clean and efficient. Elevators had some issues during my stay, but only minor inconvenience. Our room rate had breakfast included. Breakfast in the lobby was exactly the same everyday- poaches eggs, bacon, baked beans, roast tomato, some fruit and some breads. Would... More

The hotel was fine - very close to Union Station and a short walk to the waterfront area. If you get a good price, go for it, but I wouldn't pay rack rates. When I was there a fire alarm went off. There were no announcements and no one from the management came out to tell all of us waiting... More
