I have been staying here for years, been in every type of room, from basement to top, i love the new refurbished rooms, and the continental breakfast is one of the better one. I have been unsuccessful in trying to book recently, hoping all is good with this hotel.

We stayed here in October as part of a package with British Airways, we were shown to room 209 & walked straight back out. The room was in terrible condition & was very cold. I went to reception & had another two rooms to look at before we settled on our 'business' basement room with a delightful view of a... More

This is a budget hotel. A third of the hotel has been renovated and the rooms are substantially better than the older rooms. We had three rooms booked and only one was the refurbished room. The walls are very thin and you could hear EVERYTHING in your rooms and the hallway. The breakfast is included but do yourself a favour... More

We chose this accommodation as it was reasonably priced and it seemed it would have lots of character. We were not disappointed pe-say but probably expecting it to be a bit more opulent. Roms were basic, though comfortable and it did lack character. We did find out however that the hotel will close down soon to make way for a... More

The Clarion Selby is closing at the end of October, 2014, major redevelopment taking over the sight. It had a good run, was very good value for money, sorry to see it go. Great location, staff were helpful. Part of the hotel is being saved as an historic element in the new 49 story development taking place on the site.

After 2 months traveling, sharing dorms and living out a backpack, I fancied treating myself to a hotel for my final 3 nights. Except I had little money left so my brother kindly offered to book/pay for it for me. Unsure of whether him booking it on his card while not present would be an issue, I called the hotel... More

We chose this hotel because it was a reasonable price for downtown Toronto and it lived up to those expectations. However, we were disappointed at several other aspects of the hotel experience. Although the hotel bathrooms do have new fixtures and the beds were fine, the rest of the room was old and dated. We had trouble getting hot water... More

Upon arrival and check in, we were Initially put in a basement room, playfully referred to by the front desk as the first floor. It smelled of death and hookers feet. I went back up to the front desk to insist on a different room(something a little less dungeon like and above ground) whilst my wife surely coward in the... More

Great hotel, great service, and very clean. We stayed in a renovated hotel room for a very reasonable price. Our stay was extended and the hotel was very accommodating. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Staff was very friendly and made us feel like family.

A great location within easy walk of a subway station to give access to anywhere in Toronto. The hotel itself needs a huge facelift and probably won't while there is an application to build a 49 story apartment block on the site. The lift is from the 1920s and if you have issues with moving baggage up stairs or in... More
