The Strathcona offers great value in the heart of downtown, just 2 blocks from Union Station. It's a "no frills" sorta environment, but they clearly pass the savings to the customer. While the rooms are small, it's an ideal setup for someone traveling on business and watching the checkbook.

This hotel is ideally situated a stone's throw from the station and handy for the convention centre. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the downstairs bar is pretty good. However, our room was tiny! Just squeezed a double bed in it. We could barely move around in it. There was no desk space and little storage.... More

We came back. It is very clean. The pillows are wonderful. The downside was the alarm was not reset before checkin and went off and we got not one but two wakeup calls. We ate at the York Street cafe for breakfast and the waiter was quite accommodating to supplement the buffet. Then we ate downstairs at the Pub and... More

Good location when attending a convention at the Air Canada Centre, close walk away. Short cab ride to the entertainment district or Chinatown. Rooms were a good size, clean and tidy. Staff nice and friendly and helpful. Plenty of places to eat close by. Avis one block away made it easy to pick up car. Valet parking at hotel. Nice... More

I recently took a long weekend trip to Canada, we found this hotel on hotels.com. It was in a great location, walking distance from everything. We took an airport shuttle which dropped us off right near the hotel. They were super friend and accommodating. The rooms were good size for two people. We would ask for directions to places and...

Hi Flipfloplife5, Thank you so very much for your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to enjoy your trip to Toronto!

Booked this hotel last minute, based on Trip Advisor reviews. Nice friendly hotel, excellent service, we arrived early, having a reservation at CN Tower for lunch at 1.30pm, valet parking available and brilliant just to drop car off, there is a charge for parking but that seems to be the norm at hotels. We asked to drop off our bags... More

We stayed here in April. 2 rooms booked as no interconnecting rooms for families. Rooms small but adequate. Queen size bed took up most of the room so door to the closet kept hitting bed and my husband kept hitting his head on the big screen tv which is positioned up next to the closet door. Rooms and bathroom clean.... More

Located a few blocks near downtown Toronto's top tourist spots such as CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, Rogers Center, you save a LOT of money from walking instead of paying transportation expenses. A myriad of affordable and high end restaurants are also within walking distance, such as The Keg, Marche's, The Canoe, Ruth's Chris... There's even a 24 hour Tim Horton's... More

This was a last minute booking that my girlfriend and I made. Mainly because we were price conscious, and also because the location did not really matter to us as long as it was fairly close to the harbour. Luckily, Strathcona is very close to harbourfront as well as many great restaurants and attractions. The only cons that it has... More
