I read reviews that slated this hotel - but it was the only place near to the two sites where I was going to be working during my 9 days here.
The room is a little past its best but a comfy bed, excellent air con, a fridge, good business area -
with free wi-fi that worked without any problems and plenty of space, (on my own in a twin suite)
The facilities are okay; I used the pool - it was refreshing - a few strokes gets you from end to end. It was never busy and I even had it to myself a few times. The exercise room is small and stuffy - but 3 machines and a not very good weight deck. Again it was okay, although I tended to use the stairs for exercise.
Breakfast was good - same every day; fruit salad, cereal, breads, muffins, bagels and eggs, bacon, potatoes and eggy bread. Only downside was that staff served the coffee - I prefer to get my own when I need it rather than wait to catch their eye.
The staff were helpful and professional and I was delighted that it was so much better than the reviews I had read.
The location is not brilliant - about a 20 minute subway ride from downtown, and a 10 minute walk to the subway. There are a variety of restaurants within easy walking distance - but nothing special. It is a functional area of town more than a place to go to. I wouldn't recommend it for families because of the location, but for business and couples it is fine and for anyone who is just looking for a short stopover it is ideal.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
If planning to stay for a few days then it is worth buying tokens for the subway - the more you buy the cheaper each ride becomes. Where the hotel is located - you will probably want to explore further afield and the subway / streetcar is a good way to do it.
