The hotel was clean and bright. Offered a really good rate for an overnight stay. Perfect hotel if you want to park under ground and walk everywhere. The bar and restaurant inside make it easier for people who don't know what's around town and easier for people to be comfortable.

Great location close to lots of shopping and food and entertainment and public transportation. The rooms are small but they are awesome. Very clean and modern and efficient. And i didn't go all the way to Toronto to stay in the room. So the size of the room didn't bother us at all. The staff was ridiculously friendly and helpful... More

We had a really nice stay at the Strathcona Hotel. The room was clean and modern...very small but we liked the coziness. It was very comfortable and the customer service was stellar. Plus, everything is close!

Slight disappointment rooms very small but who goes to Toronto to stay in a room when there is so much to do! Fantastic location within 5 to 10 minutes walking distance of all attractions/shopping and restaurants. Train station over the road for the independent traveller. Didn't eat or drink there so unable to comment. All staff working on front desk... More

Pros: Clean. Modern look - mirrors galore. Pillows - like a cloud. Customer service. Price. Great location - 5 minute walk to CN Tower, 1 block from bar strip. Cons: Room - small, little view (12 story building). Spring bed. No internet - big issue for those roaming. Thin walls - could not sleep, easily hear normal talking in halls... More

I booked a block of rooms at the Strathcona for my wedding at the Distillery District and was hugely impressed by the level of service I received from my initial inquiry to the personal thank you note I got the day after we checked out.

I was part of the organization of a 10 room block the weekend of 7/23/16. My group came to town to enjoy the city and catch a baseball game. We made a great decision selecting this hotel as our home base. I was incredibly convenient for our travel plans. We flew into Bishop, and the shuttle dropped us a block... More

Went to the Strathcona Hotel lobby cafe last Sunday before a Jays game. Parking was close by although "event" (!) pricing at $20. (I usually walk a few blocks west of the stadium and pay $10). Breakfast the usual, eggs, bacon, sausages (quite good) toast fruit. etc. Nothing fancy but clean, fast and close to the game. Did not stay... More

The Strathcona is cheap and convenient in downtown Toronto. It's not a very fancy hotel except for the lobby but it's more than good enough for a couple of days. Points of interest like CN Tower, New/Old City Hall, Ripley's Aquarium, Steam Whistle Brewing and Rogers Centre are within a couple of minutes of walking. The hotel is also right... More

We stayed to attend a Jays game. If you hate traffic, and got lost or took a wrong turn like we did, they offer valet so you don't have to search more of the city for parking! We found this very helpful. It was clean room, bed was comfortable. They offer some computers in the lobby to use

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.
