This Hotel is conveniently located close to the Metro Convention Centre where I was attending a seminar. The room was clean but not really fancy. I did appreciate hardwood floors as you never know what is lurking in hotel room carpeting. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful.

I stayed at the Strathcona for just one night on a room only basis prior to catching an early train. I was checked in by a friendly receptionist and allocated a room with comfortable twin beds. The room also had a TV, radio, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom like the room was very clean. There is... More

the location of the hotel is very good. If you are going to stay around downtown, this hotel can be a good option. Hotel is close to CN Tower and Harbourfront. You can walk to Yonge/Dundas square from hotel. Our room is little small but enough if you do not have big luggage's. Room and bathroom was very clean. We... More

Reasonably priced hotel in the center of Toronto. My room was a bit tight, especially the bath, but it was all usable. Everything was clean and it seemed like the whole hotel had been remodeled recently. The hardwood floors in the rooms are a nice touch and much better than nasty carpets, but they do seem to make noises carry... More

First time visiting Toronto and I wanted a hotel where I could just park my car when I arrived and walk everywhere I needed to go. The location is perfect. Within a 10 minute walk of the Roger Centre, CN Tower and the hockey hall of fame. There are a bunch of restaurants/bars right around the corner on Front st.... More

We stayed at the Strathcona because of the location to Union Station and the TIFF Lightbox as we were in town for TIFF14. We did get a room upgrade and the room was great. When we arrived only one elevator was working, shortly after the second elevator stopped working. We were on the eleventh floor and as the elevator was... More

They charge you for everything and the personal is not polite at all. And though the location i extraordinary, it is not worthless staying lodging there. The TV set gives a blury image and the parking is far too expensive.You can park round the corner for not even the half the price they charge you.

Stayed here recently on a Monday night. Staff were okay but the lobby and sign in process felt unwelcoming and the staff didn't appear interested in help or directing us to the elevator. The hallway was well worn in with questionable carpets, the door to our very small room was stuck and some force had to be used to push... More

We flew in for a long weekend to see Queen. We were there Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. We chose the Strathcona due to it's proximity to the Air Canada Centre, allowing us to walk to the show. The room was very clean, but tiny. Just 18"-24" on either side of a queen bed, and 3' at the end. Tiny... More
