Thiswas my 4th stay at the Strathcona. I know exactly what to expect when I get there: a small but clean room at a great price in an even better location. This is an excellent place to stay if you're at the Toronto Convention Centre (especially if you're there for work and you need to stretch your professional development funds). I'd love to stay at the Intercontinental or the Royal York, but when I'm at a busy convention I'm really not there for the fancy room or the pool. I just need a clean, quiet, convenient place to sleep.
The Strathcona is very close to Union Station and the subway stop. Eaton Centre is within walking distance.
The breakfast buffet in the morning is good and there are lots of other dining options close by. All employees I encountered (front desk, cleaning staff, wait staff) were friendly and welcoming.
My only complaint is that I had to pay for wireless every night which drove up the cost of my room. They really need to start including it with the room to stay competitive.
