My husband, daughter and I stayed here three nights for vacation. The rooms are small, but very tidy and have nice décor. One of our mattresses was uncomfortable but we switched beds with our daughter. It was very quiet we were able to get a good night's sleep.
There's no free breakfast and rather than spending $45 for three of us to eat breakfast in the hotel restaurant we went to a Tim Horton's adjacent to the hotel.
For those not familiar with Toronto, I would suggest using the valet parking service. The cost is only a bit more than municipal parking garage located next door. My husband got lost when exiting and went the wrong way down a one way street.
I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the subway station (St. Andrew's) and it was perfect for our travels around town. There are many, many restaurants of all types located nearby for a great dining experience.
Only complaints were about the mattress as mentioned above and housekeeping didn't refill our hand soap in our bathroom, so we used shampoo which is probably the same thing.
