Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rommel52371 Awesome hotel
I'm lucky that i have chosed this hotel while i'm in Toronto. The front desk are very helpful and accommodating as well as the lady in the breakfast always check our needs. This hotel is such a wonderful since it very near to downtown shopping area particularly the well known Toronto Eaton Center. I'll difinitely come back again in this hotel. It made me comfortable as my home while away from home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou & Ghis Great place, great location.
We stayed on Feb. 8th for one night and we have no complaints, what-so-ever. Although not the fanciest of hotels, the place was clean, staff friendly and the price very reasonable for a downtown Toronto location. The breakfast is included in the cost of the room and has many choices. If you leave hungry, you're probably too picky. We would definitely stay there again without hesitation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Taz22 Poor staff and service
My stay here was absolutely horrific. I was appalled by the service provided by the hotel. The phone in the room was not working so we had to keep going down to the reception if we needed anything. Also we received poor treatment from the staff. A staff (Sutah) threatened to kick us out of the hotel at 3 am in the morning as well as calling the police. I admit we might have made some noise but a simple "please could you lower the noise as you are disturbing other guests" would have sufficed. This is NOT the type of service a PAYING GUEST should receive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sabrina55 Great downtown stopover
This hotel is very conveniently located downtown yet you don't have to hit all the downtown traffic. Staff are excellent and friendly, Made sure we had everything we needed. Would stay here again and also recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a great downtown hotel!

unfortunately when travelling to toronto, it's for hospital treatments, but we have always been coming to this holiday inn as it is clean, comfortable and close to the hospital, with a great rate.

Twice when my wife has checked into this property ahead of me, she has been quized at length as to when I would arrive - telling her they "have to ask" these questions. Well we don't have to stay there and this week booked at an alternate property. We will not return there.

This hotel was excellent and very convient to many downtown destinations. The only issue would be if it could have a pool and hot tub.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tub2 it is all about location and views.
The urban view of the St. James Gardens and Lake Ontario is spectacular day and night. Enjoy the corner windows. Great pedestrian friendly neighbourhood. we are on a low salt, low fat diet. the peeled boiled eggs were a great feature at breakfast. brighter lighting on both sides of the bed would be nice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Noted52 Disappointed
We stayed on the 16th floor which when we exited the elevator, looked and felt like we were in a TCHC building. The ceiling was clearly leaking and the damage was across the ceiling and down the wall. The carpet was so worn that it was a totally different colour in the centre compared to the area by the wall. Overall it felt very dirty and sketchy. If we had the option we would have left and found somewhere else to stay. As we didn't have that option we continued on to our room which on the surface looked clean but the bathroom door had filthy hand prints all over it - it clearly hadn't been wiped clean for a very long time. My wife is a residential building manager and was horrified at the condition. The next morning two of the three elevators were not working and staff initially blamed the delay on the number of people going to breakfast but meanwhile the elevator technician came in with his tool bag to fix what wasn't supposed to be broken.
Overall, this was an unpleasant experience, much to our disappointment.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shadow22 Bad experience
We had a confirmation that we would be getting a queen bed and when we checked in we only had a double. The elevators were not working in the morning and we had to walk up 10 flights of stairs to our room. Next time we will pay more and get a better hotel in Toronto. We enjoy our stays at most Holiday Inn Express. Very disappointed in this stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by footballfan38 clean room and great location
The quality of room is what I have come to expect from the Holiday Inn although I was shocked not to hava a fridge in the room. The location of the hotel is within walking distance of many Toronto landmarks like The Eaton's Center, Roger's Center, and the CN Tower. The staff are easy going and are helpful.
Unfortunately this property does not have excercise facilities, but there is a gym near by that you can purchase a daily membership. Underground parking is limited so either arrive early or ask about the outside parking which is only a five minute walk from the hotel and is less expensive.
Overall a pleasant stay,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peterborough Great Service, Great Location, Great Value
I routinely stay at this hotel and I am never disappointed. I great consistent great service every time. I don't think you can beat this hotel for value for $. The rate is reasonable and it includes a terrific breakfast. I feel like this hotel is my home away from home.
I am frequently greeted by name and it never feels like I am staying in a hotel. More like the home of a friend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lunamoon nice room
The room itself was very nice, bed was very comfortable, very clean, price was a little much, when I got to my room once inside I noticed my door hadn't shut properly and into my stay I noticed guests around me having to slam their doors shut, as did I once I noticed, I wasn't just me or my floor when I went up for ice a door on the 4th floor wasn't shut. The desk staff was very nice. I recommend staying out of the stairwells, for as nice as the hotel is they are very nasty and ghetto

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron88 Front Desk Staff
Just a quick note to say how impressed we were with your front staff. We arrived early yet we could check in. Every question we asked was answered politely and with knowledge. Our luggage was stored safely on our check out day. A taxi was waiting for us when we arrived from shopping just before leaving to the airport. We have been in many hotels over the years and my wife uses them consistently for work, this will be our stop when we are in downtown Toronto!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sammy321 ok not great
the hallway and the room stunk there was no remote for the TV there was no mini fridge the room was freezing cold when we got in there so we turned on the heat and it was blowing only cold air the heat was not working I called to front desk and they only told me to jiggle it a little and it should work it didn't work it was blowing cold air still so I had to go and buy slippers and thick sweater and a small heater, also the printer had no ink and they had no idea when they were going to be receiving a new cartridge,it also said they wasn't on iPod dock in the room which there wasn't I came to stay for my 19th birthday so all I brought with my ipod thinking there was an iPod dock what it says there was and there wasn't so it had to go buy one kind of frustrating I didn't really have a great day the only thing that I really enjoyed what is the free breakfast and even the hot breakfast was kind of cold. I would not recommend or stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Claude2013 Great place to stay
My family stayed twelve days, myself a couple of nights before I left for planned surgery and hospitalization at the Toronto General.
My family enjoyed their stay, the staff were friendly, helpful and compassionate. The hotel is in close proximity of the hospital and well located to the main downtown activity. It was easy for them to go back and forth. The free breakfast was good, the variety of the food was plentiful, a good way to start the day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Afflier Vacation in Toronto
Overall the hotel was ok. The temperature control in the room was very hot or somewhat cold. Not a good happy medium. Decor and paint is a little dated and you can hear people in the hallways. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a good place to stay if you are not spending much time in the hotel.

Although the hotel is getting older, it is in beautiful condition. Parking is very easy and priced right for downtown Toronto. Staff were very helpful. I will stay here whenever I come to Toronto.
Great place and views from upper floors (I was on 12th) were amazing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sueperpa Don't bother with the pre-pay option
I have stayed at this hotel before for a conference and I really found it to be a nice hotel. When I checked in they remembered that I had been there before and I really appreciated that.
I had prepaid for the room so that I could save some money. I got an alert later that night saying that $95 was charged on my credit card (it was an international charge), when I questioned it, It was because it was a pre-paid room to cover incidentals and would be reimbursed. If I had known that I would not have done this option…….because then I had to watch my account and make sure that the money was credited back to my account 3 DAYS after I checked out. That was a pain in the butt!.
The hotel is conveniently located and is a lovely hotel. The breakfast was a nice range of foods, but not terribly delicious.
Still I would highly recommend this hotel.

Often stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels when traveling. They are always clean, staff is great, hotel is always located close to shopping or restaurants. I've never been disappointed. Front desk staff were terrific to deal with. Helped with directions, cabs, etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pick01 It was good to sleep in
Needed maintenance. My wife and I each got locked in the bathroom on separate occasions because the door knob was loose, the room was pretty small, but we were just there to sleep, and that was comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 1st experience horrible mattress with dip, 2nd experience mattress like pool table.
the rooms and hallways definitely need upgrading. I did feel that they were clean, however terribly worn out and broken. my chair was broken, so I called & they replaced it very promptly, but with a ripped old chair. yuk. the rugs were ripped and worn and the
towels were frayed.
the convenience and price, and the wonderful accommodating staff,
made up for the negative aspect of our stay.
The breakfast staff especially made my stay more enjoyable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colonel09 Great Value for Money
This hotel is in a great location for visiting downtown Toronto - close to most major venues.
Great value for money!
For an older hotel, it is extremely well-maintained and clean.
Only negative comment is on our welcome by the front desk. The person checking us in checked me as a Club member, whereas I actually am Elite Gold. This is the first time at any Holiday Inn I have not been welcomed as a Gold member - staff at this one should be better trained on this.
Other than this, a very enjoyable stay. Highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting downtown Toronto.
