    Bedbugs!!! Wondered why nobody was there but us. Woke in the night to biting bedbugs. Moved to another room with more critters! Checked out at 5am. Wasn't charged, but would have rather not been bitten.

    Proximity to business event, cost, services

    Room smelled of smoke. You have a beautiful hotel, much of it refurbished with friendly, accomodating staff. However, you may want to consider designating the entire hotel as smoke free, and then replace carpeting, etc.

    I did not enjoy my stay as not a clean hotel, no safe facilities for valuables, room and bathroom not cleaned properly for a 6 night stay and no clean linen for that time. Breakfast included but poor and no real space for guests to sit or enjoy it. Only one member of staff working in the morning to cover guests booking out and to keep an eye on the provision of breakfast provisions. So cannot reccomend this place.

    Too much noise from people walking up and down the stairs. Also, non-isolated windows

    For parking, a clean room, all taxes in under $120 in Toronto this was a steal. The rooms are very small but it's suitable for a short stay.

    The parking was suppose to be included in the price but was not. Upon arrival a "parking key" was suppose to be given to us but was not available so the maintenance worker had to manually open it for us. I was told toll free and local calls were free but there was no phone in our room.

    Good location (walking distance to mass rapid transit station)

    The lift broke down on 2 separate occasions, and we were inside. Fortunately, neither breakdown lasted long. After the first breakdown, we informed the front office but were not updated on what, if anything, was done about it.

    It was okay

    Smell coming from the kitchen of restaurant-bar in the basement

  • Couple

    The location suited our visit to Toronto, as it was close to a subway station and just a short ride away from the Air Canada Centre.

    Having booked parking in our reservation, it was annoying to find that there wasn't any and we had to park our car several hundred yards away from the hotel. The room was very warm and despite bringing this to the attention of the receptionist, who didn't seem to be there when people needed him, the problem wasn't resolved.
