I liked that it was near Toronto's Union station, just a few minutes away. The room was clean and even though it was small it had everything, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron and ironing board.
It would have been nice if it could be just a little less expensive.
Great proximity to train station. Located in the heart of downtown. Clean facility.Walking distance to restaurants, airport shuttle pick/drop off, subway and other fun activities.
For an executive room it was very small and tight, made me wonder what the non-executive rooms looked liked. My booking was mixed-up. Hotel blamed Kayak, said "sometimes 3rd party sites advertise differently from reality"; even though i had called the hotel 2 weeks ahead to confirm my booking and everything was accurate at that point. Guy at the front desk was very rude and entitled. I have received way better service and room quality in other hotels for a fraction of the cost.
Proximity to our downtown office.
Staff was not helpful. We were visiting from out of the country and had multiple questions about Niagara Falls, places to eat, entertainment, etc and the staff could not give helpful answers. Every little thing was a charge (internet, local calls) which add up. The red binder of "information" in the room was incredibly outdated. Paid extra for the Internet, and we couldn't get a steady connection. Overall, staff was rude and incompetent. That really ruins a hotel stay for me.
Hotel was close to everything.
Staff were not friendly. They were not accomodating. I realize the weekend my boyfriend and I stayed was a busy one. However, after checking in multiple times about checking in early, we were treated like we were asking too much. Our room was two single beds that my boyfriend did not fit on. When asked to change rooms the front desk announced this would be too difficult. This may be the case however, I was not impressed and would not stay here again. We made a weekend away the best we could and we did have a great time. The strathcona hotel was just a minor set back in our getaway.
parking was impossible .a small underground next door to enter but the 2 exits are on streets 1/2 and 1 block away. you have to drag your bags out of parkade and the around the block.Staff never told us that.No street parking anywhere close to anything.
They charge for wifi and breakfast and the rooms are tiny. Not a good hotel if you're on a budget, either.
It was well kept and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful anytime it was needed. Got it because of great location to ACC and downtown areas.
Small beds. The rooms were very small. Bathroom ceilings weren't done properly and plaster was coming undone after a short shower. WiFi has a daily rate per device...it's 2015. Elevators broke down numerous times and did not seem to circulate air well as they were always stuffy. I took stairs every time after night 1. Other reviews were spot on or simply 4 foot tall. Only got for location.
Great location. Very clean and neat. Personable staff.
Very clean. Great location.
Had to pay for wifi. Booked 2 double beds & got room with 1 queen. Small rooms.
Random renovations everywhere in which some looked poorly done. Bad paint smell everywhere.
The location was excellent. The beds were comfortable. The hotel and rooms were clean. The staff was friendly.
Great location. It's right downtown and is within walking distance of everything. Staff was polite enough.
Walls are paper thin. You hear everything. They charge WiFi per device, not per room. Rooms are very small. No Windows to see out into the city. Have to park at least a block away. Bed and pillows very uncomfortable.
Location, location, location. So close to Rogers Center, Union Station, Hockey Hall of Fame and more. Room was nicely decorated, hard wood floors are a plus, Room has everything we needed, working A/C, LCD panel TV, good shower. Good price found via Kayak,
I haven't slept in a single bed since I was a kid. While the bed size never bothered my sleep it was small. Wife slept in the other single bed! View of the building across was not great. Elevators seemed to be only working one at a time and slow no matter what.
