We were attending a wedding at Casa Loma and this was the hotel closest to the venue. In an area where all the hotels are $300-800 there are just two mid-priced and one budget hotel. Since we were just using the room as a place to get dressed the mid-range seemed like a good choice.
The hotel was average in all respects which is not a negative thing. It is basically exactly what you expect and will not disappoint or impress. For this area I would say it is very good value.
With respect to location it is in Yorkville -- if the stuff you want to see is also in Yorkville then it is a great location and if not then less so. It is a little further out than the rest of the hotels from the center of Yorkville but not in any meaningful way. The subway is a block away. There is a 24 hour convenience store / grocery across the street.
The hotel has a pub in the hotel as the restaurant. We did not eat there but I have gone to other pubs from the same chain many times and the food is good for a pub.
The hotel was offering a deal where you could pre-pay for parking which was excellent as parking ended up being $10 rather than the typical $30-40 you'd expect.
