After 2 nights at this hotel, I can say that overall it's a very good deal if you want to explore Toronto by foot. Location is convenient to reach most of the highlights of the city. There is a parking lot reserved for the hotel at $20/day. Our room was spacious and clean. The lack of a fridge was a... More

Drove into Toronto from Buffalo for day trip. Finding accommodations "on the fly " didn't result in a clean inexpensive stay. We have stayed at this chain in the past but this location leaves much to be desired. Requires a major update to the rooms. Carpet was dirty, linen old and dingy. I slept in the chair! $175 per night... More

Now I was not expecting much from this hotel, as it is just a Holiday Inn. But this hotel lowered my already low expectations. As my family of four walked into our room, my little brother asked if we could sleep in our car... It was that bad. The tiny room did not allow anyone to lay out their suitcases... More

Hotels in downtown Toronto are expensive! This one was a better price and quite adequate. It was clean, the front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The bed and pillows were comfortable which is a must for a good night's sleep. The hotel was busy but even though we were near the elevator it was quiet. As some have mentioned... More

We stayed here for a medical appointment. In the past, at other hotels, when you book the medical rate, I have felt mistreated and given tiny rooms. This was not the case at the Holiday Inn Express! The girl checking us in immediately changed the bill to my son's name (a travel grant requirement) and when I asked about the... More

As stated in previous reviews the location does provide easy access to St Lawrence Market, the CN tower and Aquarium however it must be noted that it is situated across the street from a Salvation Army hostel. We were approached each time we left the hotel by vagrants asking for money; this became an issue for me after a four... More

Probably one of the less expensive hotels in downtown Toronto. Close to St. Lawrence Market and withing two blocks of either the King Street tram and Queen St tram. During our stay, the elevators were malfuctioning and very slow. Not the most central location.

The hotel is nice enough and clean enough. It is in a super location and was very quiet. The breakfast was ok but crowded. There is another room to eat in accross the hall. We walked to all of the attractions from the hotel except Casa Loma and the Zoo.

We wanted a hotel that offered a comfortable bed and a quiet location that would allow us to walk to and from tourist areas and that's exactly what we got. Yes, the hotel does need some TLC, the rugs are badly stained, wallpaper is yellowed and tearing, our bathroom door had holes in the surface near the bottom where it... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
