Best hotel stay I've ever had! Every year my boyfriend and I celebrate our anniversary by having a hotel night, our normal hotel was unavaliable so we looked around and immediatly fell in love with the modern decor of these rooms. The location was amazing, having Netflicks avaliable to us as well was wonderful, and the hotel staff were very very nice! I think my boyfriend and I have found a new hotel for our future anniversaries!

To sum up my experience: it was amazing!

Saw this hotel online and was very excited about my stay. However, was less impressed when I arrive. First, don't arrive between 3:30-6:30pm as there's no drop off area for luggage and since you have to park 7 minutes away (walking) this can be a real pain dragging luggage through streets full of pedestrians. The staff were rude and pretentious. The hotel is beautiful and unique and definitely a nice place to stay despite the small (VERY small) rooms and lack of amenities, but the unfriendly, unhelpful staff would make me not recommend it.

I would definitely choose a less interesting hotel with better service any day.

Can not beat the location for a night of hockey. It is a block north of the Hall of Fame and a very short walk to the ACC. The room was more than big enough for two adults. The hotel was easy to find and clearly marked, which was very helpful. Parking is not on-site but in the public garage on the same block. Not a big problem, but just be certain to unload before parking.

Unsure of where to stay in Toronto, I booked this place based on location/price/reviews. Pleasantly surprised. Great location. 2 minute walk to King subway station. 10 minute easy walk to Union Train station. Small rooms (i.e. bedroom size rather than a suite) but clean, comfortable. Free wifi. Good heating. Close by to a Shoppers Drug Mart; pub across the street; Subway next store. The hotel has a small restaurant but limited hours. There are lots of places nearby to eat so this wasn't a problem. They allowed me to check in early so I appreciated the customer service. Elevator seemed a bit slow but this would be my only criticism.

Was perfect place that met all of my needs for a quick business trip into town. Highly recommend.

Was in Toronto in the fall (Oct. 2011) for meetings and was looking for somewhere to stay for 9 nights. While looking for a reasonably priced room I stumbled upon The Victoria Hotel. It was the terrific rate that caught my attention. The posted reviews were mostly positive (and the negative ones, I've decided after my stay, can mostly be dismissed). I did heed the comments of the small size of the standard rooms and booked a one of the larger rooms which was quite roomy. I had a single room with a king bed, sitting area, work station, good size bath and FREE Wi-Fi, plus free Netflix (although worthwhile movie choices are limited - not a hotel issue). My room faced Yonge St. but the street noise was not an issue on any of the nights during my stay. I know it's only a 3 star hotel but my only complaint, while 2 actually, would be 1) no bag liner for the ice bucket (grocery store bags for fresh produce worked well) and 2) no glassware for drinks, only small, flimsy plastic cups (a trip to a dollar store rectified that problem). The basement area where the ice machine is can be described as claustrophobic but clean and also a small book exchange table with a couple of good reads. If I had a car, I would be put off by no on site parking, but no need for a car with the proximity of the hotel to downtown venues, entertainment, dining and shopping. It is also just steps away from the subway and The PATH (underground walkway). The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Enjoy.
