Convenient location with friendly staff and basic comforts

The hotel is located in a convenient location that's within walking distance to the subway. Though rooms are a little small, it is still relatively comfortable for just a good night's rest. Staff was friendly and provided assistance at times when we needed tips and recommendations. Wouldn't mind staying here again if I'm back in Toronto.

Overnight Getaway

Loved the location and décor - very modern. Only complaint was you could hear everything from the room next door and in hallways. Gap around the door, so light & noise easily get into your room. Every time someone went to get into their room, we thought they were trying to get into hours (no sound proofing at all). Next morning as the staff were cleaning the bathroom in the next room, sounded like they were in ours!

GREAT LOCATION!!!!!

Perfect location for a concert. My daughter and friends could just walk back on their own without getting lost. Parking at another location was terrible and cost an additional $36, but I guess you can't have everything. Staff was very helpful. Would definitely stay there again!

Average

Overall, my experience was good, but a couple of things need to be improved. First, charge less for Wifi access. It's 2013! I shouldn't have to pay $6.00 per night for access to the internet, when I can go to a pub on the corner and get if for free. Second, do not hire Asian women who cannot speak English to man the front desk. The woman I spoke with when I checked out became angry when she couldn't understand what I was saying, and I'm from Australia, so my English wasn't the issue. Third, the cleaning ladies are lovely and very attentive. The people at the front desk should take a leaf out of their books - that's customer sevice!

Good place, bad room

Location is perfect. Close to the railway station and the center of the Town. The room was very very small: Only the space for a bed. Very little equipments and accessories. The radiator has a noisy fan. If you don't close perfectly the shuffters the rooms opposite and above can saw your bed. I waited 15 minutes for Check-in: Only 2 persons at the front desk. The only good things was: a very good bed and a perfect cleaning.

Efficient one night stay

I had only one night in Toronto. The location of the hotel made everything very convenient. The stuff was very helpful and friendly to me about organizing transportation, sightseeing, etc. The room was small but nice and clean. The size of the room was not important for me so it was OK with me. I am happy to stay again at this hotel.

Bland Business Hotel

This hotel was recently renovated but already shows signs of fatigue. Wardrobe configuration with TV very strange and panelling was dislodged from poor workmanship. Beds were uncomfortable and heater sounded like a jet engine when it came on, therefore disturbing sleep. Also in this day and age of technology and inexpensive data packages, it's not too hard to provide some complimentary wireless connectivity to guests - if not in rooms at least in the lobby area. If boutique hotels can afford it, then so can business and standard hotels!
