Stayed here for 1 night to get some Christmas shopping done. Incredible location. Walking distance to anything downtown east. Clean room but VERY small. Booked a deluxe queen thinking it would be an average size. NO. Really small. Couldn't sleep because I felt so confined. Was afraid to ask for an upgrade because of cost. Also, had to go around...

The Strathcona Hotel is perfectly located minutes from some of Toronto’s biggest landmarks. Among others, these include the CN Tower, Rogers Centre, and Air Canada Centre. Due to the hotel’s proximity to Union Station (the primary rail/bus/subway hub for downtown Toronto) it offers a great respite for travellers passing through the city for just a night or two. I had... More

The room was cozy, but comfortable. Washroom had little counter space, but adequate for 1 person. Goodlife Fitness was conveniently located right next door, for an early morning workout. Union station was close by and it was only 3 blocks away from the Convention Centre. Great location!

Spent two nights at the hotel in downtown Toronto and the hotel was adequate. When they say 'smart' it is, tiny room, tiny beds, tiny hotel in a good location. In walking distance to Leaf and Raptor games. Would have liked parking to be included or discounted in the underground parking. It was clean and good for business trips when... More

If you are travelling alone and only staying one or two nights, this hotel is adequate. The bed was comfortable, the pillows just right and the room was very clean. My husband and I were there for four nights on a business trip, so we took more clothes than usual. There was a very small closet but not one drawer... More

Reminds me of european hotels with the small room's and bathroom. I think my knees touched the wall when I was on the commode :) Very comfortable bed, perfect location. Steps from Union station right in the middle of the downtown core. Great value hotel but if you want spacious rooms this is not for you. Boutique style hotels are... More

We had a day-long conference here, and it was as nice a venue as any we had worldwide. The location is very central. The room is relatively small, but equipped with a good quality projector. Setting up all the details with Tony was a friendly and cooperative process. Udeni looked after us during the conference – a nice breakfast, a... More

I stayed at this hotel for a night as I was passing thru the big city of TO. I must say that as a budget priced hotel in downtown TO, it was good. The room was clean and the staff helpful. It wasn't as comfortable as other hotels I have stayed at, however it was great for the price.
