                    5.0

                    Being outside the hotel, the area surrounding the hotel was very nice.

                    The beds were very uncomfortable, the room is generally outdated with paint and plaster peeling from the walls and ceiling,s. I was compensated with free parking because 1 bed frame was broken at the foot tilting towards floor. Still it is not worth another stay for the price!

                  • Single
                    7.4

                    It was a perfect location downtown, friendly courteous staff and great value for the price.

                    8.2

                    Customer service was excellent.

                    There was an appartment building right outside my window, I didn't feel comfortable opening the curtains.

                    8.8

                    I am a cancer patient-the lack of parking was inconvenient. Hotel location provides easy access to Princess Margaret Hospital.

                  • Group of friends
                    3.2

                    It is worst hotel which I have ever stayed

                    Nothing, the waiter served during the day time on July 21, 2011 was lacking of knowledge, and his attitude was really bad, he should not work there.

                  • Couple
                    8.8

                    My room has a big bed, very comfortable

                  • Couple
                    7.0

                    Good value hotel in excellent area

                    They do not monitor parking lot even though it cost 15 per night to park. Mind you it is needed because the parking lot is filled with broken glass from people breaking in cars. My car was broken into and several others all in one night. And when it was mentioned to hotel staff they didn't seem surprised at all and were quick to point out the sign that stated not to leave valuables in the vehicle.

                  • Single
                    10.0

                    Excellent service. Had trouble with the TV remote initially and it was serviced within 5 minutes of reporting the difficulty to the desk staff. Very nice continental breakfast daily. No surprises at check out time. Very clean rooms.

                    Staff very pleasant and helpful. Location excellent.

                    Towels were of very poor quality. Ant infestation in the bathroom. Lighting in the room and bathroom poor. Flat sheet used as fitted sheet on both beds. Walls very thin - could hear lots of noise from the room and group of people staying next door.

                    Included breakfast and proximity to the University of Toronto. There is also a Whole Foods nearby which can come in handy. The rom (including the Crystal) a clusterfuck of architectural detailing to great visual effect is also nearby. All the rich people shops are also nearby. Chances are though if you're shopping on Bloor your probably going to want to stay at the Park Hyatt or the Four Seasons.

                    80S hotel vibe; a Hojo's of years past though that could appeal to some. Lack of space to eat breakfast in the lobby. Chances are you will have to bring the food back to your room. I was alone though they for some reason only offer rooms with King sized beds and rooms with two Queens. There is no lighting on the ceiling and the fake brass ceiling only give off mood lighting which makes working slightly harder. They should really get their candelas checked.

                    It was in a central location.

                    I didn't like that there was a gaping hole in the wall of my shower that was filled with silicone. The rooms need a make-over. I don't think the wallpaper/ carpets have been changed in like 20 years.

                    Given the cost, the room was large, bright, well equipped in particular with a large table, sufficient sockets and wifi, staff is friendly, room was clean. A very straight forward, low-frills room

                    Renovation might need to be done in the foreseeable future.
