This is a former luxury hotel that has been serving as a university residence for several years, so if you're looking for luxury now, go elsewhere. But if you want a great place to stay right in downtown Toronto, just a few minutes' walk from the Eaton Centre, this is the place to stay.
My grown son and I stayed here for two nights at $99 (+ tax) and really enjoyed it. Parking is $24 a night, but is in a garage right below the building. There's a huge hot breakfast buffet included in the price of the room.
In order to have Internet, you must rent a high-speed modem Ethernet modem for $5 a night, but it is well worth it, especially if you're traveling with your iPhone and have shut off international data roaming. It was easy to set up the computer and we were online in minutes, using our Macbook Pro as a wireless router for our iPhones.
I will stay here again on my next trip to Toronto. I just don't think you can get a better bargain anywhere. The room and bathroom were clean and linens, towels, soap and shampoo were provided. I don't think there is daily maid service but we were only there for two nights, so we were fine with that.
