Stayed for two nights recently. It is what I expected, small and a bit older. However, it was in a great location and a decent price. The beds were a bit noisy and you can hear other guests but that just kept me entertained, lol. No regrets, I would stay here again.

I travel for a living this place was horrible. Drunk people making out in the elevators, hookers in the hallway I couldn't believe it! The room was tiny, fine , but everything looked worn and old. Worst yet there was no sound barrier you could everything going on outside. Thankfully I had to stay only for a night. Lastly, red... More

Boyfriend and I (young professionals) wanted a cheap(er) hotel near Union station so as not to commute home to the burbs after an event in the City. Although this place looks somewhat nice on the ground floor, there were some big problems: something that looked like blood stains on the shower curtain, hair on the shower wall, no fan in... More

Location is excellent. Room (room number 202) was very small. No desk, no chair! So the only thing you can do in your room is stand or lay on the bed. Never realized as a business traveler how much I appreciate a desk and chair and easy chair/couch in a room. Floor near window and bathroom entrance was uncomfortably cold... More

Spent three nights here with my boyfriend. It seemed much more like a hostel than a hotel. The rooms were cheap, falling apart, dirty and not even close to the pictures online. There was barely enough space to walk around in our queen room and the bedspread was covered in dust and hair when we arrived. There was also clear... More

5min walk to Union Station and about an 8min walk to the Air Canada Centre. Very central location. However, you will need to pack your own late night munchies, there was NOTHING open after a night of bar hopping. Stayed in a queen executive suite. There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom and the room was extremely small so... More

We had a very nice stay. We wanted to upgrade our room and it was very easy for them to accommodate for this. Everyone was really nice and helpful. The room was clean and the pillows were super comfortable. I wish I could buy them for myself. The location was amazing. Perfect for our concert at the Air Canada Center.

The room was small but clean and across the street from Union Stn The concierge was friendly, and upgraded our room free of charge as bookit.ca had booked a queen but when we checked in the hotels record showed a double. The room cozy clean and quiet.

This hotel is amazingly located. Everything is an easy walk, the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, Theaters, great restaurants but this does not make up for its many other problems. Really take note of the size of the rooms on the website - our executive King was extremely small, literally a walkway around the bed. The advertised double deep tub was... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
