My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in a Smart Queen room. The room is on the smaller side but we didn't feel cramped. We had no view and very little natural light, but it was quiet and we slept very well. We also didn't notice any noise from fellow guests.
Staff was nice and check in/out was easy. Location is very close to Union Station and sports venues. We used the Hop on/Hop off sightseeing bus to get around and there is a stop a couple blocks away.
Wish wifi was free. That would be a big help to travelers from outside Canada (like us) who are traveling without smartphones to avoid roaming fees. Also wish parking wasn't so expensive. We parked from 7pm Sunday to 3pm Tuesday at the underground lot next to hotel and paid $49. Construction was also taking place nearby and made getting to hotel a bit tricky by car.
Overall, we were happy with our stay. Rooms are clean and updated. We booked a few months in advance and paid about $130 per night (including tax) in mid-May.
