I paid close to $200.00 for an executive suite. The room was very small with a double bed. The wiifi was extra and I could not pay with my debit card because the machine was down all weekend. I would not recommend this hotel.

Everything is cheaply put together, floor was uneven, hot and cold were reversed in the shower. Beds were the worse, had a sore back all weekend. I'd rather pay $50 more a night to actually sleep well in somewhere not the size of a broom closet

I stayed there 2 nights but wasn't at the hotel that long, only to sleep. The hotel and room was clean. Walking distance to CN Tower, ACC and Rogers centre. The value was pretty decent at the time I went. I didn't stay here last time though because I got a better deal about 2 blocks away. But I would... More

Location and price was great for downtown. Room 217 was small with two double beds that filled the entire room. It was a tight squeeze to enter and get around each other but we were there just to sleep. The beds were hard and the walls thin. I would consider staying again if we had comfortable beds. A grumpy child... More

The Strathcona is just what you would expect - clean, comfortable but not above average in any respect. The staff was efficient but not welcoming. We were there only for an overniter until our train left...but I woukd not stay here again. No complaints but just "meh"!

I needed a hotel that was in close proximity to the Air Canada Centre. Played in a basketball tournament at the Centre in the morning needed a place to shower and rest before watching the Raptor play later that evening. It's walking distance to Union station and the Centre and I pay about $100 american for one night. You have... More

Our room (which had a King bed) was compact, but perfectly adequate. The bed was comfortable, and we had no trouble with noise. I had a vegetarian omelette in the hotel dining room, and was very impressed with it. I was less impressed with the fact that they wanted to charge me 2.00 extra for toast, but perhaps I am... More

Location is great however the walls are paper thin. We could hear everything which was awful... I would "maybe" like to give it another chance, but I don't know if it is worth risking having a good nights sleep.

Rooms are indeed small, as virtually every reviewer points out. But we knew we'd be in it mostly to sleep, so we didn't let that deter us. And I'm glad we didn't. Our room, an executive queen, was actually fun because of how cleverly it used the space. The modern design was pleasing; the chiffarobe was sufficient for our two-night... More
