great helpful staff. close to everything in downtown toronto. and right next to the train station. This hotel offers (at an extra cost) one of the best freshest breakfast I've ever had while staying at a hotel. Would return there to stay

My self and my wife were newly wed and we did not feel welcomed at all.

Pros: Free Internet
The executive floor was very poor and the hotel Manager was the weakest hotel manager I have seen in my life. The bed was not king size and the breakfast not included for the executive floor and price was very very disappointing, therefore my self ,wife and friends will never stay there again.

Rooms and beds are extremely small.

Cons: Noisy, very small rooms
While acceptable, I would only stay here again as a last resort. You can usually find much more comfortable accommodations in the same price range.

No free Internet at this hotel. The hotel is very quiet which is one of my big beefs with many hotels. I don't like noisy hotels.

Clean, efficient rooms.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Updated hotel very near Air Canada Centre. Very clean, but older building. Lots of nearby underground parking. We felt like we were in a European hotel. We loved the hardwood floors (I hate carpets) and nook with coffee maker, etc. Small breakfast restaurant was efficient and small variety of food. Friendly staff.
