Stayed at the hotel in March. Breakfast was tasty -- thought I would have liked more options to be included with my room than just toast and coffee. Jazz every night was amazing. Drinks were cheap and the staff are just fantastic.

A mainstay on Queen Street west for years the Rex is a great place to hang with friends and listen to great live jazz. The sweet potato fries are good with a belly full of beer.

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

I know that the men's washroom is on the main floor and has no steps to get into. Sorry but I am unsure about the entrance.
