I had originally booked the Holiday but switched thinking this hotel was in a better location. It is closer to the main Younge Street, but in an area that is probably OK but has a seedy feel to it.
The lifts were terrible. My room was on 16th floor and during my 2 night stay there was never an occasion where all 3 lifts were working and it could 5 minutes to get to the room.
ROOM TIP: stay on a lower floor where you have the option to walk to the lobby if you don't want a long wait for the lift.
Breakfast was a buffet style, but the breakfast room was far too small for a hotel of this size
Even though the price was OK, there are better places to stay in Downtown Toronto
