The hotel is more for first-timers, short-visit travellers or working executives on meeting or business trips. Room's pretty compact but might be a bit cramp for some. Only basic toiletries like shampoo and shower gel, bath towels and toilet papers are provided. WIFI's available but you need to pay for it. Transportation wise, it's very near to Union station and...

We stayed at the Strathcona during a major Conference as an alternative to the main Conference Hotel. We found the hotel comfortable, convenient and well appointed. We needed a fridge in the room and the hotel was quite accommodating - the room cost more than the lowest standard rate but the accommodations were just what we requested. We did have... More

Room was small but perfect. Only issues are no fridge in room, and the blow dryer in bath is terrible. Best part of this hotel is you can see it from Union station. Excellent price for the location. I loved the touch screen map/tourist attraction computer style thing in the lobby.

Needed a reasonably priced hotel near the Convention Center that could fit 4 women. We were attending our first time MDRT (Million Dollar Round Table ) Convneiton. Being first timers in Toronto, we wanted a good priced hotel, very near the convention site, yet could comfortably room us 4 conventioneers. This hotel was recommended by my Toronto based cousin.

Myself and a few friends had a lay over in Toronto due to weather and we were put up in The Strathcona Hotel. We were looked after the moment we walked in the Lobby. :) Which made an annoying situation very pleasant. PS... The BEDS are AMAZING :)

I have stayed at the Strathcona multiple times and have always had a fine experience, but I have always booked a standard (cheapest) room. However a special occasion I booked a Queen suite. However when I got to my room I discovered it was a standard room, with two double beds. Because of a very tight schedule I wasn't able... More

It’s about time I did a review of the Strathcona! My partner and I have been staying there several times a year for a few years now. Typically, we take the train from Ottawa to Toronto and stay for two nights. We stay in a ‘Smart Two Twin’ room, which has two twin beds. These rooms aren’t large, but they... More

We booked this hotel at a reduced rate through an online travel site. The price was almost unbelievable for a downtown Toronto location. About a one minute walk from Union Station and right at Front street this hotel puts you at the heart of everything. You are literally less than a five minute walk to the Skydome, the CN tower,...

The Strathcona seems to have a reputation more as a business hotel than a leisure destination. The room was very small, very "minimalist" -- yet totally functional. There was enough room for a queen bed and two night tables, and that's about it. It was clean and quiet. The location is super -- a block from Union Station and near... More
