Chestnut Residence & Conference Centre
Ranked #108 of 138 Hotels in Toronto
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This hotel is one of the University of Toronto residences, so essentially there are many young people staying here (students and travellers). We did also see some older business people. The main reason to book this hotel would be its location which is central and within walking distance to the CN tower, Eaton Centre, main downtown area and attractions. It is quite easy to get to from the airport if driving, and includes underground parking for a fee of $24/ night. There is also an airport shuttle available just in front of the property which makes it easy for those without a car. A daily breakfast is included for two in the price and is actually quite good and varied. The lobby area and dining area are nice and clean and there is a common area on the 27th floor which provides lookouts, seating area, TV's, vending machines and a microwave. The suite itself is a good size, but in need of some updating (carpets, walls). Internet is NOT provided for free and there was no TV in our room. The hotel itself and the general area surrounding the hotel felt safe and we didn't encounter any problems. Prior to our trip I called the hotel two separate times as I had a couple of questions regarding check in/ out. The person who answered didn't speak English very well, and was a bit curt in her telephone manner. Once we arrived, the front desk was helpful and nice. Basically, if you are not picky regarding room décor, then this hotel is a great value for its central location!

I stayed at 89 Chestnut when attending a meeting there. Very central, conference facilities are moderate but generally OK. Rooms are spacious but a bit drab and the reception allowed me to leave my luggage for a few days before I checked in which was really helpful. Overall, I'd say this place is pretty OK but it would be even better if they could throw in free wifi for the price they are charging. It is certainly not cheap for a university residence. Good laundry facilities in the basement.

The hotel is kind of a student dorm but it was not noisy. The room was big and clean. It has a great location in downtown right by Eaton Centre. Breakfast was included in the fee and was really good. The only problem I noticed was with the elevators. The hotel is really big, has many floors and they don't let all the elevators work the whole time. So as my room was in a high floor, it usually took me about 10-15 minutes waiting everytime I wanted to go up or down. Besides that, I highly recommend it.

I booked into 89 Chestnut for a summer stay. Then, after reading the reviews (OK, should have read them first), cancelled the booking. On the day of the intended say, they took the one day minimum charge from my card.

I spoke to them later, sent them the paperwork, and they refunded the charge. Very polite and helpful except that, of course, I lost on the currency conversion.

Moral of the tale? Be sure of your intentions before booking here.

I looked for cheap hotels to rest for 2 nights and most of the hotels in Toronto are too expensive.

The residence is pretty nice for the price. And it is located next to the city hall downtown!

We booked a two double bed room and while the AC is very noisy (waked me up until I switched it off) the rest of the room was very clean.

Bathroom is clean, breakfast is alright and included in the price. Black spots : no kitchen, no TV (not too big a deal if you go around a lot, but still appreciated).

The hotel feels very safe as you need to have a key if you wish to go to the floor where your room is. And there is security in the lobby.

Floor can be a bit dirty though. Bring slippers!

What a great place to stay. Our team stayed there in early may. The service was great, the rooms quality matched the cost. It was a 4 minute walk away from the busiest corner in Toronto - Dundas and young - eatons center, red lobster, johney rockets, hardrock cafe, etc. Right around the corner was a starbucks, subway,grocery store and mac's convenience store. The hotels breakfast and supper buffets were fantastic. Given it's location in Downtown Toronto - it was relatively quiet. Great value -recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The 27th floor has a look-off - beautiful panoramic view of toronto - great quiet area

It is University dorm, but I was very comfortable and the staff was incredible. Great location too. Certainly not good for business, but a great place to crash for a ;few nights in Toron59.
