Spent New Years Eve here with a young lady; we chose the Strathcona based on price and location. We paid $230 after tax for the room on NYE, when the other hotels were charging $400+, so we were pretty happy with that.
Yes, the rooms are small. So is the bathroom sink (according to the young lady lol). Yes, the soundproofing is poor. If you're looking to save a few bucks and spend the night in a clean hotel, then I recommend the Strathcona. We spent $2.99 on ear plugs because we read the reviews; we slept all night/morning with no troubles. The bed was extremely comfortable!
Thanks to Ravi at the front desk for helping us with our deposit issue and ensuring we had a room. We would have had to stay at a different hotel if it weren't for his help.
