This is a nice hotel - nothing luxurious but good hub to explore the city of Toronto. Situated a little bit north of the core centre and reachable nicely by two streetcar (tram) lines. From the tram stop you have to walk appr. 250 metres to the hotel.
The hotel has 14 floors and appr. 200 rooms. Some of the rooms are facing to Jarvis Street, some has a bit more peaceful view to the inner yard.
Our room had two double beds and it was spacious enough. Also the bathroom was ok with a bathtub. Appr. 30 television channels, not very many international though.
Sound insulation is average, but the weak link is the door, which closes with force and hence with some noise too.
Hotel has a free buffet breakfast, whics was clearly better than in hotels of this class in average. There were scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon and small hamburger-style beefs (selection varied a bit from day to day).
Clerks at the reception were mostly friendly and courteous, and we were given a late checkout when requested.
I can recommend this hotel.
