Excellent and friendly service. Prompt service. Smaller rooms, but location could not be perfect for business and to get out and enjoy the city. Entire city centre is walkable from this hotel and there are multiple restaurants to enjoy in Toronto.

Upon entering this hotel is very modern. The lobby is small but not crowded. There is a restaurant off the lobby that we didn't end up eating in. The room was clean but not very big. The location is great, really close to rogers centre and air Canada centre and just a short cab ride to queen street west. There...

Right across the street from the Fairmont, the train station, and walking distance from any sports game you may be in town for, this hotel is well located and has great rooms. No need to pay more if you can get this place for a decent price. No gym in the building, but you can use the Goodlife nextdoor.

Upon checking in I was rudely informed that my reservation had been canceled since Hotels.com had not contacted me two days before for my credit card, despite the fact that my reservation had the credit card attached to it. The concierge was extremely condescending and informed me that the price of the room was going to be much higher than...

I recently spent one night at The Strathcona with a friend. This was my second visit, and because my first was not a satisfactory experience, the manager and staff did their very best to make this next visit pleasant. They succeeded in every way. The staff at the desk was very courteous, and the Guest Service Manager immediately addressed myself...

Very comfortable and pleasant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent location near Union station and theatres. Will certainly stay there again .The only negative thing was the scratchy towels. Would love a softer brand.

The Strathcona is convenience writ large. I travel to Toronto by train, the hotel is a short walk from Union Station and an easy walk to the sports venues (hockey, baseball, basketball), the theatre district, the aquarium, the Art Gallery of Ontario and 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.
