This was a last minute booking that my girlfriend and I made. Mainly because we were price conscious, and also because the location did not really matter to us as long as it was fairly close to the harbour. Luckily, Strathcona is very close to harbourfront as well as many great restaurants and attractions. The only cons that it has... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 1 night at the Strathcona in order to attend a concert at the Molson. Overall I was a happy guest. The staff was very helpful, everything we needed was close by: Just up the road we had dinner at an Italian restaurant and drinks at an Irish Pub to follow. Cab Fair was low cost... More

I stayed one night in Toronto to attend my son's graduation celebration and I loved the place. 2 min from the train station. Centrally located. Walking distance from theatres, Thomson Hall, fine restaurants...Renovated and very comfy bedroom. Linen, bed and pillow felt like home.

Stayed here while attending a wedding in Toronto. Location was great in terms of walking to shopping, downtown attractions, BUT due to construction in the area, driving was a pain. We parked in the underground parking lot next door and left our car there the entire weekend, but upon leaving, it took a while to navigate back to the front... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Strathcona while attending a conference at the Toronto Convention Center. The room was small, but clean and had everything I needed. It was less than a 10 min. walk from Convention Center and right downtown near lots of restaurants and stores. Sound-proofing could be improved. I woke up at 3am first night to loud... More

This is my "Go-To" hotel in Toronto. The rates are competitive, the rooms are very clean and well-maintained and the staff is always pleasant. They will store your luggage on your arrival and departure days. What more could you want? Oh yes, a LOCATION which is subway- convenient and Island- airport ideal! There is a bit of construction in the... More

We stayed at this hotel one night on 2014-06-21 because we wanted a location close to the Toronto Island Airport Shuttle for an early morning flight. The location is one block from the shuttle and has a 24-hour Tim Hortons restaurant right across the street. That's the good news! Both the room and the bathroom were the smallest I have... More

First time abroad in around 30yrs, it was my wifes first time period. Found all staff friendly & welcoming, they even assisted with getting accomodation in Ottawa. Our stay was faultless & highly recommend a stay.

The location is certainly convenient to waterfront activities and close enough to walk to the CN tower and Ripley's Aquarium, but all the construction can make it difficult to navigate around the city. The rooms are VERY small but our bed was very comfortable and we really did have everything we needed in the small space. Our room was very... More

Centrally located, clean and comfortable rooms. Some of the staff at reception were helpful and pleasant (like Ronald). Unfortunately though, the person who checked me in was frosty and even gave me incorrect transit information. That said, I would stay here again if I need to be in this part of the city.
