This was my mine and my dad's first trip to Toronto (my dad's first trip out of Europe) and we were very pleased with our room. The view was awesome, we could see the CN Tower from our window which was great for me as I did the Edgewalk - I could even see the hotel from the tower lol. The kitchen was basic but good and saved us a lot of money on breakfasts. Beds were comfy and shower was great. Wardrobes were nice and roomy too.
We had a slight problem with the fridge in that it kept making a lot of noise and shuddering but we found that by turning down the temp overnight it kept quiet. Also the air con was loud and didn't seem to do much to cool the room down but we think the heat may have just been too much for it. We left our window open and this worked well, the cover over the window to stop bugs getting in was great.
The person on reception when we arrived was very cheerful and chatty and we felt very welcome. Again when leaving although he was quieter he was also pleasant and let us leave our bags for a couple of hours after checking out.
The location is excellent, 20 mins walk to St Patrick station through Chinatown which we did everyday. Chinatown itself is a great place, everybody is nice and there are some really good souvenir shops and restaurants. It felt very safe the whole time we were there, even after coming back from a concert late one night - we had no worries.
Overall a great place to stay and if I returned to Toronto I would happily stay here again.
