I've never heard of Templar Hotel so when my boyfriend found it a decent price, especially for NYE and its location (which is right in the middle of the club district), I was all in. Upon entering, you get an artsy non-traditional and a more modern vibe. There's a little waiting area for a lobby, a tiny desk in the...

I booked two nights for a trip for family obligations, figuring I could at least treat myself to what looked like a cool hotel with interesting rooms. As far as the basics go, I have no real complaints: the front desk staff were very sweet, the bed was on the hard side but I slept no problem, room faced the...

Good location if you are going to Chinatown or the entertainment district. Also close to the Skydome, CN Tower and Aquarium. Minimalist décor, sort of Asian fusion but cute. Good value, nice to experience something different from a chain hotel.

Stayed here on business for 2 nights. Staff was great. The hotel was odd compared to bigger chains. The bed was knee high. The bathroom had a tub for 6 at least. The shower was open concept with 3 glass walls and no door to keep water and shampoo in. I could literally roll off the bed right into the...

I wanted to like this place. I liked the way it was marketed online as it looked modern and minimalist, yet comfortable. It started going wrong when we arrived and there was no one in reception. The odd and empty restaurant behind was pumping out dance music and the waitress there couldn't help us check in. After a few minutes...

We stayed here for one night to celebrate our 30th anniversary. From the moment we entered the lobby, I could see that the decor was spartan - devoid of any signs of comfort or holiday decor (it was 2 days after Christmas). The room was not any better. It felt more like a monastery than a hotel so maybe the...

We stayed at the Templar for 3 nights and quite liked our stay but the design features make the rooms a little less than comfortable. Our room was clean, the staff friendly and we found the bed comfortable but I can see why others did not. The location is great but of course that means traffic noise which is a...

I was a solo female traveler for a medical conference and paid around $230 for this hotel. They initially gave me a room that had hair and a sticky spot in the bath tub. I was then given another room without a functional door lock. When I informed the staff, I was told not to worry and that only management...

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.

Located in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district, the Templar Hotel promises to provide an experience that you won't get at a standard large chain hotel. ... more   less
