    Novotel is a people- friendly hotel. The staff are nice and approachable. It has its own cafe where you can have buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is close to St. Lawrence Market which is a great place to buy good food, either raw or cooked. Even Ripley’s Aquarium, CN Tower, The Flat Iron Bldg and other tourist spots are walkable. The staff are nice and approachable.

    Came to Toronto city center to watch some Blue Jays games. The Novotel Toronto Center was perfect for this holiday and its situated a short walk from the Skydome and all the the downtown action. Great location. The facilities in the hotel were a bit dated but satisfactory. Staff were kind and helpful. There were many restaurants nearby with lots to choose from.

    The hotel is in a great location, easy access to TTC and go trains. It’s also near scotiabank arena, Rogers center and the lake. The breakfast was great, service was excellent and the two rooms I stayed in were clean. The only thing is no drinks (paid or complimentary) were available in the rooms. I had trouble finding water in the morning once. They should think about people who may need to drink medicine etc in the morning.

    Novotel was a pleasant surprise because of its good location. We had a bit of a scafuffle due to a double check in as the system checked in 2 diff couples in the same room but it was sorted out by our front desk who was apologetic enough and appeased us with some drinks and free meal. It was great. Thanks

    This hotel is lovely and it is obvious they are updating but having wires and plug boxes exposed and hanging on the wall all over the room was a bit dangerous i thought.. Although the bathroom shower was to die for the sink left a lot to be desired as there was no place to put your toiletries. And the toilet sticking so far out from the wall was weird. But the bed and lines oh, they were wonderful. So to be honest it was an okay room but nothing to write home about,.

    Great location, close to most places and in walking distance. Big room, bigger than you expect, especially when my friend and I just came from Japan and lived in a tiny room. Ordered room service on the first night b/c we were jet lagged, delicious! but probably too much for 2 people.
