Stayed here with a friend while in town for a Conference. Small room not a problem, but finding body hair on the sheets, bathroom floor and in the tub of a room we just walked into and had supposedly just cleaned was disconcerting to say the least. Had to call Front Desk to exterminate a bug on the ceiling, that... More

I had never heard of this hotel before, But came across it when looking for some downtown options (close to Air Canada Centre) that wouldn't break the bank. I spent a night here with family and was pleasantly surprised. We were greeted with a smile and after a quick check in went to our room. Though the rooms are quite... More

Our two night stay was terrific....location, location, location.....central to all activities and restaurants, especially if your convention is at the Royal York- steps away... Management/front office- great Rooms are small but very clean and all you need.

Not being familiar with downtown Toronto (TO) or the Strathcona Hotel, this turned out to be an excellent choice for me. As a grad student on a fixed budget, it was great value given the prices of most hotels in the area. The hotel has a boutique feel to it. It is clean, comfortable and the reception and housekeeping staff... More

I only discovered the mistake later that night when we were out for dinner and it took a bit of convincing back at the hotel sort out the problem. Not a great start. The rooms... More
