We booked this hotel because the price was excellent and the location seemed great for a first time stayover in Toronto.
The hotel is very well placed on Yonge street with all the shops and restaurants within easy walk, either on the street or the PATH if you know how to navigate your way around it. It was also a very short walk to the nearest subway station if you wish to use this to get around.
We arrived just after lunchtime having come in on an early flight from London, and were asked to wait about 30 minutes for our room, but the staff offered to take our cases upto our room for us so we could go get some lunch.
Upon return half hour later our room was ready as promised. We were allocated room 701 a deluxe king room as booked which was a lot roomier than we expected based on previous reviews.
We had a nice big closet for storing clothes an both our cases. and the bed was very comfortable. The traffic noise was a lot louder than we thought it would be, and perhaps the hotel should look to invest in an inner glazing pane to reduce this, but nevertheless only one of us being a light sleeper needed earplugs, and we both managed to sleep fine. The lift backed onto our room, and the noise could be heard but really wasn't loud enough to be heard over the traffic and never bothered us.
The décor and condition of the room and whole hotel in general was lovely and really did live up to expectations, though I was surprised there was no safe in the room.
We didnt have much interaction with the staff, and while I wouldn't describe them as overly friendly, but they were always polite and acknowledged us when entering or leaving the hotel.
For the price they charge this hotel is excellent value, and the little extra touches they offer like free wifi, bottled water to the room, and a newspaper everyday were great.
If staying in the city again we would use this hotel in a heartbeat, but if you want a quieter stay with more onsite facilities like gyms, restaurants, this may not be for you.
