What a wonderful place! However if you didnt know it was there you might miss it! They need to work on their signage a bit. However, that is the ONLY suggestion we have! This was our first time here and I have to say the experience was wonderful. We arrived early and the front staff were so nice and although... More

Being steps away from Union Station and the Rogers Centre is just about the only good thing about this hotel. It is a last minute booking for a rendezvous, rate is $219 USD before tax & fee. Unhelpful service from front desk staff, slow checkin service. Small room (the pictures are deceiving). Barely enough space to roll the luggage around... More

We stayed at this great find over the past weekend, as it was my birthday and we had a Jays game early the next day. After scouring Toronto for a hotel at a normal price, I stumbled upon the Strathcona Hotel. Many hotels in the downtown core are, on average, about $300.00 CAD before taxes, per night - however, on... More

Easy check in with friendly staff this small hotel is a gem between the big hotels and just a few minutes walk to Torontos Union Station. Queen room is reasonably small as is the bathroom but adequate and wifi is very good but check your package as may not be included ($10 for 3 days) not unacceptable by any means.... More

The Strathcona is a no nonsense hotel in a great location! The rooms were clean (very small) and the beds were quite comfortable. We used the public parking (much cheaper than valet) that was right next door. There was a subway station as well as many great restaurants near by. This hotel was a cheaper option to many of the...

I stayed at the hotel for one night only for a business trip. It is a small hotel only a few steps away from the Union Station just opposite of the historical Fairmont Hotel. Location is good. The breakfast was ok. They were kind enough to provide wifi free of charge and deducted the amount from the invoice total at... More

We travel 3 hours to TO by train to attend events multiple times a year. The location and price always make the Strathcona our first choice. A lot of money is spent on travel, tickets and dining while visiting, I like to save money where I can. I am usually travelling with my daughter or niece. The twin smart rooms... More

My wife and I were visiting Toronto for a concert and wanted to stay fairly close to the Air Canada Centre, the venue for the event. The Strathcona reviews were pretty favourable and the location was definitely attractive and so we opted to stay. Very happy with our selection. The room, although pretty small compared to other larger named chains,... 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.
