Read in one of the posts that people had used Hotwire. Never heard of it before but checked tonight. A 4* hotel in Downtown Toronto is $88 per night for the 3 nights we will be there in October. Am inclined to book but having never used the service I am slightly wary (a British characteristic!) Guess at those prices if it was the pits we could only stay for one night and find something else and put it down to experience!
