We stayed for 2 nights and selected this hotel due to its vicinity to Union Station and an early train departure. The hotel is of a great standard and offered great size rooms and all the amenities you could require (even a fish bowl if you so wish).
My only downer is that on a Sunday evening it was very difficult to find somewhere to eat- Union Station was it and some Irish Pubs around the corner. Walking around didn't feel too safe especially as there was a health centre about 2 blocks down with a lot of people spilling out into the streets. Don't let that stop you though as its only about $7 incl tip by taxi to get to a bustling area. Also you have to pay for wifi (pet peeve) unless you sign up for the Kimpton club.
