Most of downtown Toronto was already booked up when I started searching for a room for a five-night stay during the Toronto International Film Festival. Victoria's Mansion caught my eye because of its price and location, and got me because they had one room left. It was a simple room: a double bed, TV, clock radio, coffee pot, microwave and some kitchenware. The rooms do have private bathrooms. Mine only had a shower, which was fine by me but may be an issue for some folks. One thing they need to change on their website is advertising dial-up internet capability. No more. They do have wireless internet, which works very well, but the phone system no longer allows dial up. The property itself is located on a fairly quiet, neighborhoody street. But you walk up to the corner of Gloucester and Yonge and it's like, "Whoa! Manhattan!" If your business is in the hustle and bustle, VM serves as a nice escape. There are serveral good restaurants of various styles and flairs at the end of the block, and you're minutes from most everything downtown via foot or the Wellesley subway station. The staff is nice and helpful, but mostly stays out of your way. It's like having a short-term studio apartment. I booked at Victoria's Mansion because they seemed to be my only option. But even if my options were wide open, I'd stay there again.
