We chose the Crowne Plaza based on location and we believe we made a good decision. We were very pleased with it's proximity to everything once we got to know our way around.
The Crowne Plaza was only a block away from the Sky Tower. The main street, Queen St, was only a block in the opposite direction, so it was very easy to find anything you wanted: shopping, restaurants, entertainment, ATM banking machines, etc. We found a 24-hour Internet Café around the corner on Wellesley St, called the Midcity Computer Internet Café which was very inexpensive (and very convenient).
There is a free city circuit bus (not the green one) which does a loop around the downtown area. So the hotel was in a great location for that as well.
We had originally planned to take the Airbus Express bus from the airport to the hotel, but instead for just a few dollars more, we took the SuperShuttle. It lets you off right at the door of your hotel. We’re glad we took it. Parts of downtown have fairly steep hills (like around the area where the Sky Tower and the Crowne Plaza are), so trying to drag luggage our luggage would not have been fun.
Our room was spacious and nicely laid out. There was no noise whatsoever. And the bed was exceptionally comfortable.
We found the front desk staff very friendly and helpful. And the tuck shop in the lobby of the hotel was well stocked and quite a convenience. I highly recommend it.
