we stayed for one night and we were very pleased. The room was small but lovely, it looked like it had been just redecorated, wood floor, nice bedding, lighting etc. there was a small closet with luggage rack. Good coffee maker and TV. This hotel is in a great location and with a great city like Toronto to explore we... 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

Room was modern, clean and great location. Close to lots of restaurants. Parking was right next to hotel. We stayed here to go to a sporting event, venue was within walking distance. Was nice that they had coffee and tea available in the lobby

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

After seeing my room on the second floor faced a cement wall and I felt like I was in a basement, I asked for an upper floor that did not face a cement wall. The staff took out the floor map and genuinely seemed to be trying to be helpful but I wound up with a 6 th floor room... More

Stayed here for 3 nights to attend a conference, booked a room with twin bed. First day they said room wasn't ready, gave a tiny room with a single bed. Reception just shrugged shoulder when I said I wasn't happy. No compensation. Location is nice and so was the second room. But the idea is I should get what I... More

Having redone their lobby recently, you feel you are entering a nice hotel. The rooms despite being very small are clean and modern so are the bathrooms. Noise is a problem. Rooms facing the inner courtyard where garbage containers are located produce great noise from 6am. The management quickly obliged when asked for another room. This one located on the... More
