I am just back from a two night stay at the Strathcona Hotel in Toronto. I was traveling on business. I have read the other reviews and some of the complaints about the size of the rooms. The Strathcona is an old hotel and its rooms are small. On the web site oft he hotel the dimensions are giving. I stayed in a room with a double bed. And that occupied most of the room. However, there was a generous closet, an iron and ironing board, a full length mirror. a great TV mounted on the wall, and a rack on which to put my suit case. The bathroom was small but had lots of towels and came with a hair dryer. There were three shelves on which to put my toiletries. The bed was exceedingly comfortable and the linens clean and quite nice. There was lots of light and hardwood-floor laminate. I read the people complained that the room was cold. It was when I checked in but after a few minutes the heater had it toasty warm (I turned off the heater and put an extra blanket on the bed and slept soundly). I heard some hall noise, but no more than at every other hotel I've stayed in. Best of all the price is far less than other hotels. I paid $109 a night plus taxes, using the train discount. The Strathcona is close to great restaurants, theatre, sports, and shopping. No, I don't consider it a luxury hotel or a resort-hotel. It is simply a great place to stay at night if you just need a room for a few days.
