My group of friends and I stayed at this hotel for two nights while in Toronto for a music festival. Our reason for booking this hotel was the price, it can't be beat in Toronto. We basically paid for two nights, what it costs for one night anywhere else. You do get what you pay for though, the rooms are... More

Parking is 3 blocks away and... More

We had arrived mid evening and therefore had the "night" person on. But the service was terrible. Room felt "dingy". We wanted a place that was central to... More
