I stayed there 2 nights but wasn't at the hotel that long, only to sleep. The hotel and room was clean. Walking distance to CN Tower, ACC and Rogers centre. The value was pretty decent at the time I went. I didn't stay here last time though because I got a better deal about 2 blocks away. But I would...

Location and price was great for downtown. Room 217 was small with two double beds that filled the entire room. It was a tight squeeze to enter and get around each other but we were there just to sleep. The beds were hard and the walls thin. I would consider staying again if we had comfortable beds.

The Strathcona is just what you would expect - clean, comfortable but not above average in any respect. The staff was efficient but not welcoming. We were there only for an overniter until our train left...but I woukd not stay here again. No complaints but just "meh"!

Our room (which had a King bed) was compact, but perfectly adequate. The bed was comfortable, and we had no trouble with noise. I had a vegetarian omelette in the hotel dining room, and was very impressed with it. I was less impressed with the fact that they wanted to charge me 2.00 extra for toast, but perhaps I am...

Location is great however the walls are paper thin. We could hear everything which was awful... I would "maybe" like to give it another chance, but I don't know if it is worth risking having a good nights sleep.

Rooms are indeed small, as virtually every reviewer points out. But we knew we'd be in it mostly to sleep, so we didn't let that deter us. And I'm glad we didn't. Our room, an executive queen, was actually fun because of how cleverly it used the space. The modern design was pleasing; the chiffarobe was sufficient for our two-night...

Great location, great value, and great service. The rooms are small but you'd think they were decorated by Ikea. Very clean, and the location is perfect for getting to events or meetings downtown. Parking is extra and it is right beside the entrance.

Staying in Downtown West

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.
