The Strathcona Hotel is close to the train station and the Convention Centre which suited me fine for this recent business trip. I found the hotel to be clean, and extremely quiet (which surprised me because it is downtown and I expected some outside noise however I heard none). The staff were pleasant and helpful.

My boyfriend and I stayed here during a recent visit to Toronto. We purchased the Toronto Blue Jays Package and couldn't have been happier with the location. 5 minute walk to Rogers Centre. Underground parking across the street is $10 on weekends. Yes the room is small, but how much time do you plan to spend in your room while... More

Stayed here for 7 nights with my 17 yr old. We had a twin room and like many of the reviews say, it was quite small but having said that, it was more than adequate if you are using it just as a base. It was clean and fresh and the rooms cleaned daily. The hotel is well located and... More

Fantastic location - right downtown Toronto. Minutes away from Toronto Union train station, as well as big sites such as the Roger's Centre, Air Canada Centre, the Eaton Centre, Toronto Harbourfront, etc. Also surrounded by many restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Our room was modern, trendy, and nicely decorated, slightly on the small side but it was all the we needed.... More

If you need to stay in the centre of Toronto and don't want any frills, this hotel is OK but on the pricey side. You would think that by charging upwards of CAD $260 per night for a small, claustrauphobic room they could include WiFi, but this is not the case. There is a separate charge for everything in addition... More

This hotel is smack downtown so the location is perfect. It is surrounded by lots of places to see and eat. Or if you'd prefer you can just visit the pub that is onsite at the hotel which is great... good food and great service. I stayed here for 3 nights while travelling on business. Check in was seamless. Checkout... More
