I have stayed in this property when in Toronto since it was built. I have come to know a number of the staff members and feel like I am returning to visit friends when I come here. However the inadequacy of the on site parking and the lack of fitness facilities (rather the management's failure to address either of these long standing shortcomings) may drive me to find a new home away from home in Toronto.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Osakawayne No Frills, but good service and location.
This hotel is a place to get some good sleep in a good location. I recommend this for business people who are there just to get some rest. The people at the front counter are very friendly and the parking system where you have access to exit and enter without extra payment is a bonus in Toronto.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phoebe27 Great location and excellent staff.
Overall, our stay was pleasant and the room comfortable. We had a fairly attractive view from our window. There is no fridge in the room and no swimming pool or gym. The hotel employees were wonderful. There was a consistently high standard of service and friendliness among the staff. The small courtyard was handy for pick-up and drop-off. If you're lucky you may catch a glimpse of Philip the raccoon at dusk, as he goes about his evening business. The lobby was quite small for a such a large hotel; seating is limited. The breakfast selection was very good. However, there was one set of tongs for both the omelets and sausages. This is obviously a problem for vegetarians and anyone with dietary restrictions. There are self-service laundry facilities which we made use of and found to be perfect for our needs. The weather was very hot and humid during our stay - we had the air conditioner on for the duration and it kept the room cool and comfortable. There are some excellent restaurants within walking distance, including Bombay Palace and Golden Thai.

Location is great for this hotel. Walkable to Hockey Hall of Fame, Rogers Centre, Air Canada Centre, and St Lawrence Market. Really had a great time. There was no refrigerator in my room, so I was disappointed about that, and also didn't realize there wasn't a pool on site, which my kid would have liked. Also, as a priorities award member, having a complimentary bottle of water on top of the toilet is not exactly why idea of a perk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jess237 Quality Stay and Great Service
The staff were very welcoming, and made sure that we knew our way around the city. Everything was clean and ready for us to use when we arrived, and the staff told us to call them anytime we needed anything. They made our stay more personal by asking us how our event was and asked if we liked our stay, and if there was anything they cold do to make it better.
The location was in a great part of the city and there was no extra noise while in our room.
The food in the morning was excellent and I loved the variety.
I recommend this hotel to anyone, especially this location.

We recently travelled to Toronto for a medical appointment and certainly enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. Staff go above and beyond to answer questions, suggest places to visit and arrange taxi rides. All were friendly and knowledgable. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We recommend a stay!

Very good experience. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, just like a hotel staff is supposed to be, which seems to be lacking sometimes these days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brina24 Awesome location. Close to St. Michaels Health Centre. Walking Distance
I had to stay downtown Toronto for an appointment at St. Michael's Health Centre. I am not really familiar with the Toronto area. It was really easy to get there and walking distance to the hospital. Overall, good hotel:)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fran Good Value
The hotel was a good value as it was only a short walk to the Lake Ontario water front and the subway station. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good, typical of all Holiday Inn Express hotels. The only downsides were that the hotel was right across from a Salvation Army shelter and that the pipes creeked.

It would be a good thing if coffee and tea could be available outside the hous when the (excellent) breakfast service is available
While there is a coffee/tea maker in the room, only two cups is a bit on the short side.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by James19955833a Time for a refurb
Hotel is nicely located, staff was very attentive, and hotel was clean. It is time to throw away all the furniture and start over. The desk in the room would have been at home in a garage sale.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Micdan Friendly environment and clean!
We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the clean environment. The breakfast was good and gave a lot of variety for those who do not have food restrictions. it would be great if some gluten free starch options were available other than rice krispies . It would be helpful if the meat and egg offering would indicate if they contain gluten. Overall it is a very good place to stay and is good value. We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to come again!

Service is very good and its a nice location right at the center of downtown Toronto. The staff at the front office Mr.Ravish was good and was quite helpful.
Overall it was a good stay, but the hotel can improve in the following areas:
1) Complementary internet in the rooms- the connectivity was not good and kept disconnecting when I was making overseas calls through skype (it was not a problem with skype).
2) There are no microwave in the room for me to heat my own food

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zoomp Clean hotel, noisey guests.
The adjoining room was full of yahoo's, not the hotels problem really... the main issue was that my wake up call fro 5:15 was never sent... good thing I do a backup on my phone, otherwise my trip would have been a waste.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PriorityClubTenant Horrible hotel in an otherwise great chain
The room smelled musty and like cigarettes, toilet ran all night and breakfast "room" is slightly larger than a walk in closet.

My niece and I just came back from a 2 night stay at this Holiday Inn. We chose it because we thought that it would be a good location for getting to BLUE JAYS games at the ROGERS CENTER. Was it ever!! A 2 minute walk to King Street, a short trolley ride, and a 3 minute walk down BLUE JAY WAY and, voila, you're there. The staff was very helpful. patiently answering all of our questions, and the breakfast buffet was GREAT!!
We'll stay there again the next time that we come to see the RED SOX beat the BLUE JAYS.

We stayed here while attending a wedding at St Lawrence Hall. The hotel was in a great location, just a block away and was a great choice. Reasonable priced for downtown Toronto and an excellent value. The room was very clean and comfortable, great decor. The breakfast had great variety and was kept well stocked by the staff.

Beds are very bed. No availability for the underground parking. Very expensive for what it offers.
I had reserved 2 rooms - 1 with 2 queen beds and the other with a queen bed. Both rooms had terrible beds and in addition, i was given a room with 2 double beds instead of queen beds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ale5663 Decent place-affordable price
The hotel is within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. The room was clean, parking was available and the complimentary breakfast makes it a great deal. I was initially disappointed that the hotel didn't have a restaurant but found many options very close by. During our stay a light bulb was burnt out in the room and upon contacting the front desk, maintenance was sent up and it was resolved within 4 minutes.

Great location for access to downtown Toronto events such as Rogers Centre. Breakfast was very good. Beds comfortable and not too much noise at night. Room rate changed upwards by 10 dollars upon arrival in comparison to on-line booking rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justthetravelagent Ideal base for a good price
Ideal place to base yourself and although CAD$20 may seem steep to park you can come an go as you please, but to see the city walking is best with a station only 5mins away.
The room was small compared to other HIE we had stayed in but it was comforatable and clean.
The check in staff were very helpful and although we arrived a bit early our room was ready.
Breakfast can be a bit of a scrum if you don't knw there is another room opposite but the food was very good.
