I lived two months in this mansion in 1989. Clarion did a very good job renovating the place. Though the lobby (reception desk) and hallways need some tender loving care Our room 218 was clean well renovated fabulous bathroom and well decorated. The only thing to improve is the pillows they were awful . Our head would completely sink in... More

The neighborhood is a little edgy, but the hotel was delightful. Complimentary breakfast was adequate. The hotel is near everything..Yorktown, downtown, Old town, distillery district, etc. Parking is very limited with only 17 spots at the hotel and they are very tight. Parking is extra at $17/night. Very good sleeping with king beds and nicely decorated.

Pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a beautifully, re-done room! Very reasonable rates and friendly staff. Breakfast included and it was great and I really enjoyed the sunroom! Very enjoyable stay!

Stayed here for the second time as part of a school trip. The front desk service is excellent, rooms are clean, good breakfast, renovated rooms are very nice. Very close to a subway station and fast food restaurants are within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

When I walked in, the smell was of an old building. The front desk clerk hardly said two words to me. They tried to transform the lobby into a contemporain style with minimum $. So they took away any historic flavour this building may have left but did not transform it enough to look contemporain. The furniture in the hall... More

Booked for 89$ via choice website, CAA price. The hotel is located next to Sherbourne TTC station so easy access by public transit. The building is definitely beautiful, but lobby and corridors need some TLC, small old school elevator, not appealing. The room however was recently remodeled, Ikea chic, but functional, great king bed, not much of view (but no... More

This was my first time out of country and in Toronto. I booked this hotel on Priceline and thought, WOW its an old mansion. I was so excited, because I love old places converted to hotels or bed and breakfast places. I finally get to my hotel, worn out and get my room. It is down a long hall, in... More

Good location, clean room, although the bathtub did not drain well.Customer service is above average.Construction close to the hotel so you will be woken up at 7:00 a.m. by lots of noise from the construction site nearby.

We booked to stay at the Clarion Hotel as it offered a great location with good transport links to downtown and other areas we wanted to visit. After reading reviews and realising that the hotel was partially renovated we did request if we could be put into one of the renovated rooms. On arrival we were told we would need... More

I booked online and booked for convenience to downtown but should have been a little more selective. The staff was amazing and seemed genuinely embarassed about the whole situation. Unfortunately they were victims of their environment. The Building is beautiful on the outside and the lobby is so classy looking.... but it's a facade. the narrow, sloping hallways smelled questionable... More
