We got a great deal off Hotwire to stay at this hotel for 3 days while we were in Toronto. Location wise... because it's so close to Yonge/Dundas, almost every major tourist site is within walking distance. We found the staff very courteous and helpful. (Fresh warm cookies at check-in anyone?)
And though hotel looks a bit dated from the outside, the rooms were quite nice. The lobby could use some work though. There was free wifi that had some pretty quick speeds, which was nice. The underground parking is quite tight and can be a bit hazardous. Not much that can be done about that unfortunately. Just gotta be extra careful with rental cars. I'm never a fan of paying for parking at any hotel, so the $29/day charge didn't make me smile.
Although we didn't take advantage of the gym or pool, they were available. The gym was well stocked with various weight/cardio machines for anyone that wanted it. The pool area I found a bit dark and eerie for my taste. Some more lighting would help out a lot.
Overall, my girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay and would book again... as long as it was another solid deal off a 3rd party site. Don't think it's worth the $200+ per night regular price.
