If you want room service, daily housekeeping and multi-channel tv this is not the place for you. If on the other hand you want a cheap room (we paid CDN$79 per night) right in the heart of the city (it's located behind Nathan Philips Square close to the bus station and Eaton Centre) with a free breakfast buffet then this is a great deal. Formerly the Colony Hotel the rooms obviously have a hotel feel with comfortable beds and chairs, nice bathrooms, a writing desk and table. There is a hairdryer in the bathroom and also an iron and ironing board. Housekeeping comes around twice a week but there are plenty of towels available to keep you going.
Check-in was quick and simple. You have to show your key to security before going up to your room but the staff are very friendly. Check out was no problem either and there was no problem storing our bags until later. An added advantage of the hotel is that the airport express bus stops directly outside the front door so no long walks with luggage. I found this hotel thanks to reviews on here and would have no problem recommending it to others.
