We visited in may, and we was really early to the hotel from our flight we was there around 7am and they let us check straight in which really helped after a long flight. If they can't check you in early they let you store your luggage there so you can still go out and see the sights. Location is...

Had a wonderful stay at the Strathcona on a long layover in Toronto. We picked this hotel mostly for its affordability and location and it was exactly as advertised and the most convenient place I have ever stayed in Toronto. If you are taking the UP train from Pearson to Union station, the hotel is just across the street from...

Originally given a very tiny room which I didn't mind since I was there for a conference and would barely be in the room but asked if I could get a bathtub at least and was upgraded no problem. Gorgeous room, extremely clean and super nice front desk staff!!!!

Steps from the airporter shuttle from Toronto Island (Billy Bishop) airport, and a few extra steps from Union Station (Toronto's main train terminal). Very conveniently located for most downtown venues and activities. Rooms are business-style, so on the small side. Not really designed for families with kids. But rooms are crisp and clean. Lobby area and rooms seem to have...

Great location walking distance to Union Station, I had a King bed very nice, fits the room (room isn't super big). Leave your car at home as they only have valet parking and it is $$$. Don't pay more the 149$ before taxes.

Nice business hotel in the center of Midtown. Close to the conferene center. Good and friendly staff. Great wifi. Very clean rooms. To go back.. You can of course breakfast in the hotel but there are enough opportunities to take that on the hand.

We were going by train to Toronto for the Whisky show as an anniversary weekend away.

We wanted to be near the train station that's why we stayed here. (union station). This is our second time staying at The Strathcona.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
