I have only attended banquet and conference functions here, so cannot attest to the quality of the rooms.
It is an excellent location for business traveler who are working in the north part of Toronto. (For spouses/families visiting you are in walking distance to Fairview Mall, which also has a multi-screen theatre, and is now the eastern terminus of the new Sheppard Subway line. You can also take the #24 bus, fare $2.25, caught just about in front of the hotel, to the Don Mills station, no transfer needed for the subway.)
As well as the conference facilities, there is a dining room and a lounge for food. They do have an indoor pool and sauna, and fitness room.
I stayed in Toronto, and rented a place, a lot of landlords rent to people on short term lets, so i recommend you look in classifieds, or online, as this is much cheaper!
you get either to share with someone ( a local) or to have your own space in a home to come and go as you please.
We stayed at this hotel the night before we were flying to Costa Rica. We had to leave at 4:30 in the morning to get our flight so we though it would be better than driving in from Guelph. What a mistake!! Read on if you need proof!
The hotel lobby was dark and the wallpaper was peeling off. The smoky bar seemed unsafe, let alone unclean. The elevators were slow and smelled bad. The desk staff did not have a good command of the english language. The rooms were clean, but poorly maintained. The toliet and shower did not function properly. There was a children's team of some kind running around the halls until after 11 pm when my mother -in-law told them that she would call the cops if they didn't stop. The promised free shuttle to the airport was not given to us until we complained and then still half of our party had to pay.
Close to airport, has shuttle service and free parking for the length of your vacation.
Notice the 2 star rating on the website. I think they are being nice!
Toronto has one of the most priciest hotel rooms in Canada, third perhaps to Vancouver and Montreal. Vacancy levels have fallen during the last decade, but there is hope that this industry can one day be resurrected again. Toronto has no five star hotels, but currently American billionaire Donald Trump ("The Apprentice" & "You're fired") is planning a Trump Tower in the heart of Toronto's financial district. Hopefully, it will be completed one day...
Toronto hotel rooms, like most North American hotel rooms, are large compared to Asian & European standards. Many hotels are close to the TTC subway, while suburb motels are mainly close to the highways.
MORE coming soon...
The YWCA Woodlawn Residence, for women only, has short term hostel like accomodation with private or semi-private rooms with shared bathrooms. There are cooking facilities and laundry on site. Breakfast is included in the rate and it is cafeteria style. It is located on a quiet residential street in a nice area of the city (near posh Rosedale). It is also close to transit, business buildings, shopping, and fine dinning or quick eat and go places.
Basic, clean, and friendly. It is not a women's emergency shelter, but there are transient women on a tight budget, as well as women who are travelling.
A relatively new hotel located in Scarborough, just outside of Toronto. We stayed here because it was close to the zoo, and because I had to drive and I hate driving in downtown Toronto.
The hotel is nice, with a very nice wood-trim interior. The rooms are modern and well appointed, even though the air conditioner sounds like a badly-tuned jet engine.
There is a very nice complimentary continental breakfast provided each morning, and the hotel is right beside an East Side Mario's restaurant.
One thing that really surprised me is that there is no elevator open to the public. That's not such a bad thing, considering it's only two stories high, but when you're lugging all the luggage you need for a family of four, it gets a little painful.
Prices were ridiculously high, considering that Toronto has been trying to attract visitors due to the SARS scare.
This is great if you are staying in Toronto for more than a couple of days. Great facility with kitchens and parking.
The staff of Bridgestreet keeps their places very clean.
The accomodations are perfect for those who want a home feel and privacy.
Leaside Towers is a luxury apartment complex, but they have a few furnished suites that they rent on a short-term basis. This building is well kept. It looks like one of those fancy downtown office buildings. Very clean and quiet. Apartments in this building are very expensive (by current standards), but their short-tern suites are very reasonable compared to hotel rates. Suites rent from just $50 CDN. Its a bit far from downtown, but there is frequent bus service in the area.
Buildings are 44 floors, with pool and gym. Underground parking, and 24 hour security with doorman. Spectacular view of the city and the Don Valley.

There aren't a lot of small intimate hotels and Bed and Breakfasts in down town Toronto which is geared for business travel. I've stayed at the Sheraton, the Delta Chelsea, both large hotels and the Lord Strathcona, a little smaller but still a good size and the best price i found for mid summer mid week (still over $100 canadian a night). The Royal York is of course the Grande Dame of the Toronto Hotels and has a pool. It's location is right downtown across from the train station so convenient. The airport bus stops here as well as many other hotel stops around the downtown city. Check online, call the hotels, price shop and ask for special deals.
The Humber College Residence is 25 minutes north of downtown. Open for tourist during the summer, the price is very cheap (37$CA-22$US including tax, try to find bettter!)) and a good breakfast is include in the price. It's also located in a large arboretum in a safe part of the city.
Room with simple bed, lounge with TV. Showers and toilets are very clean. Big park near the residence. Little
refrigerator. Close to a big Shopping Center.
I haven't had a chance to stay overnight in Toronto. Unless blizzard condition in Buffalo. It doesn't take long to travel between Rochester and Toronto anywayz.
I agree with you this doesn't sound helpful. But too bad I have no idea which bed is good.
A brand new sunroof was created by the heavy snowfall this year, so sleeping under the stars will be beautiful this summer. In early June I plan to get a new gas canister for my Coleman stove, so we can cook again, and for Christmas I received a brand new second-hand Thermos so you can be assured the coffee will flow like wine during your stay. At night, for a little recreation, we could go can collecting, or if you're feeling a little more 'wild', worm hunting is always an exciting excursion. I will provide the little, tiny nets and arrange all of the necessary permits (thanx Greebo) but you must supply your own rubber boots. I hope to be able to buy new batteries soon, so the flashlight will be operational again, and if it rains alot this spring, then the running water problem will be solved. I'm sorry that I've no actual washroom facilities, but I do have a few empty coffee tins strewn about, so you're always welcome to them; anything for my visiting friends. :o)
120 CN$ for three.
Several animals : 1 parrot (Rob Roy, 3 cats and 2 dogs)
At 10 mn from the subway (High Park)
A private bath room
