At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.

We arrived on the 30th November and stayed 4 nights. By the 2nd December my card had been cloned and someone had charged £112 at Macy's. I haven't even been to Macy's so it wasn't me. They also tried to take another £400 on the 4th December at the same shop but my bank blocked

Thank you for your review. We take all guest feedback very seriously and follow through. Our investigations have not turned up anything conclusive as far as credit cards go. Please be informed that our hotel is an internationally branded hotel with standard systems for reservations and data storage. We note you had booked and prepaid through an online 3rd party travel agency with the same credit card. The procedure for processing credit cards by other merchants and vendors are beyond our control. We urge you to get more information and assistance from your credit card company. We hope you understand that credit cards can be used at various points of sale and it is not possible to figure out where they get compromised. We hope you will not allow this to discourage you from staying at our beautiful hotel and enjoying our amenities and service along with the thousands of other guests who stay with us year after year. Sincerely, General Manager

The Saint James is a small hotel, with a small entrance hall and a single elevator. My wife and I were impressed by the size of our room, which included an area with couch and armchair, besides a small table for laptop and office chair. The 3pc bathroom was very clean and

I'm quite fond of The Saint James Hotel. It's the third time I've stayed while in Toronto and hopefully not the last. Great staff, comfortable rooms, free breakfast, and a convenient location to explore downtown Toronto. Highly recommend this great little hotel in downtown

Do you have any rooms with a bath tub or only shower? Does the hotel have a heated pool?
Hello, Thank you for your question. All the rooms have the rainfall shower. We have 2 soaker tub suites that are upgraded rooms which we sell for $50 additional. These rooms have a large bathroom equipped with a soaker tub and also a separate rainfall shower stall. Thank you--Loujayna, General Manager

What is the difference between tiered advance purchase price and advance purchase?
My understanding is a tiered advance purchase is for someone that is a member of their points system (an Ascend Hotel Collection member), so you might get special benefits. Whereas an advance purchase is you book and pay for the hotel and there is a no cancellation policy.

Best to contact the hotel as I have no idea. Beautiful place though.

"We were on the 5th floor overlooking Gerrad - across the street from Ryerson U campus and very happy with this location."
"They just might all be good rooms."
"Ask for a room at the back to avoid road noise, and, if one exists, ask for one that isn't near a big air con unit."
"higher floor, in the back (less noise from traffic)"
"We were on the second floor facing Ryerson and were very surprised at how quiet it was there."
