I booked a room in the Strathcona using Hotwire. The room I booked should have been a king room as that was the closest matching price to the price I paid. However upon arriving As I was about to sign the paperwork for the room I casually asked what type of room I was getting. I was then informed that... More

This hotel came recommended, so when I traveled to Toronto in 2009, there was no question that this is where I'd stay. The hotel is central to all of the tourist attractions nearby, and also near public transportation in case you want to tour the rest of the city. Clean, quiet, easy check-in/out. Recommended!

Stayed for one night in Toronto during a leisure trip. Excellent location, walking distance from the CN Tower, Rogers Center and several other downtown attractions, restaurants and bars. The rooms were very clean and the appliances worked great except for the wi-fi, the signal was very weak and at times it was nonexistent. The curious thing is that it worked... More

I arrived at my hotel late at night exhausted, checked in, went to my room and there was hair in the bathroom sink in the tub and hair in between the sheets. I have pictures to prove it. as... More

My wife and I just stayed at the hotel while on business for four nights. For most of our stay the wi-fi would not reach our room. The vanity top is small, there is a nice shelf under it to store things, but unfortunately the sink leaked and all our stuff got wet. My wife got stuck in the elevator... More

Good price compared to what's around, well located, comfortable room. If you go there for business, mention it.. They have a special floor for business clients, with free internet... I had to pay mine and realized that only at the end of the stay. Restaurants on site are good and pretty affordable to.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night to attend Nuit Blanche. The hotel is nice and very clean. Front desk reception was top-notch. I even heard the fellow helping another guest mention it was only his third shift, and I couldn't believe it! He was so knowledgable. It seemed like he'd been working there for years.... More

I recently stayed here for a night as I was enjoying some films at TIFF this year. I needed a last minute place to stay as I hadn't realized one of the movies wouldn't allow me to take the last train home. I found a good deal for a queen bedroom a week before. The room was small, but perfect... More

We stayed here recently. This hotel was picked because it is very close to the train station and cheaper than the Royal York. For the price saving you get a much smaller room, about 3 by 5 meters. One would not wish to spend many days there, but for a night or two it is adequate. Room was clean, air... More

Me and my other half stayed at the Strathcona Hotel for 1 night at the beginning of our trip to Canada. We got the shuttle bus from the airport which took approx 40 mins (on a busy friday afternoon) and the hotel was a 2 min walk from our stop. Great first impressions, the staff outside were lovely and welcoming... More
