    It’s all about the breakfast”

    Hotel is nicely renovated and looks like some effort was made to take an old historic landmark and make it relevant and modern. But, the real reason I keep coming back is the incredible breakfast and staff (Mark in particular makes you feel like you’re sitting in first class or at a private club). I’ve never enjoyed a hotel buffet breakfast as much as this. Small batches keep things fresh with eggs to order - after stay here, there’s a bounce in my step. Perfect for business travellers or for staying in town for an event.

    Great location right near the station”

    Stayed over the weekend in transit through Toronto on my way to Winnipeg. The hotel is conveniently located right near Union Station where the UP ends. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable and stocked nicely with coffee machine and bathtub to warm up after a cold winter's day out. But also walking distance to the paths to take you around downtown. Lovely atmosphere in the hotel and staff were really knowledgeable and accommodating.

    Great place to stay at reasonable rates. They have Valet parking now, so take advantage if you have a car. Valet is $35.00 and underground parking is $25 or more. It's easier to get in and out with Valet. Close to most things or a $10 ride to attractions!

    A great place for going to conferences up the street”

    I had a conference at Sheraton Centre, 650m (thank you, Google Map) up York St, and picked the Strathcona because it was cheaper. But it was also more pleasant, not like a shaken beehive, clean, and even the walk was a good way to start the day. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. Also, it is just a block from Union Station, so taking the UP train to/from the airport is a piece of cake.

    Room was clean and in a great location easily accessible to various downtown sights. Staff was wonderful and when our room neighbours came in extremely loud at 2am and continued to do so, the staff were very quick to knock on the door to ask to keep the noise down. Check in and out were easy and the breakfast buffet was delicious! Just wish I'd been a bigger eater.

    This was our second stay at the Strathcona. The location is wonderful. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. Upon checking in, I asked if our room had a mini fridge and we were upgraded without asking to a room that did... at no extra cost. When there was some noise at night in our hallway, the staff went up and asked the people to quiet down. You can’t beat the value of this hotel; it is our go to place when in Toronto!

    GREAT LOCATION & ROOM”

    After staying 6 days in a "condo-hotel" at Avenue Road and Bloor (cheaply put together, no services when needed, items not repaired, basic Struck-Tube furniture, smears on walls, badly-stained mugs, no coffee or tea yet a full galley kitchen) the STRATHCONA was a huge improvement. Smallish room but beautiful furnished and fitted out; warm highlights, California shutters, wonderful soaps/shampoo, coffee and coffee-maker) and the location was right across the street from the Porter Island Airport bus pickup. Subway just around the corner; tons of shops and coffee places, restaurants within steps. Very helpful staff who stored luggage as my arrival was early. Would definitely return anytime!

    A Wonderful Find”

    Everyone I've talked to these past two days have had to listen to me rave about The Strathcona: its location near the subway AND the train station; the small but perfect room with its wooden floors and light wood furniture -- very European in its minimalism; the comfort of the bed and the cleanliness of the bedlinens; the addition of a rack for my bag, an ironing board and iron; and the enthusiasm and warmth of the staff. All that, and a great price point too. Now that I've found you, Strathcona, I will never leave you!

    Requested to check in early. Never heard any notice that it wasn’t available. Upon trying to check in was told that it was not available. Information that could have been passed on before our check in date. Also, after our night we’re looking to sleep in. Did not happen as there is not much sound proofing between walls and doors. Heard other guests and staff constantly going in and out of (slamming doors) doors early in the morning which was fairly annoying after a bit of a night out and looking for a decent rest.

    Clean but small!”

    The location is great for events downtown, and the hotel is clean...but I have never in my life stayed in a smaller room! The size of a closet! Not a big deal unless you're claustrophobic like me I guess. We booked a room with 2 beds, as it was myself and my friend. When we arrived, we were told we got an "upgrade" to a queen bed. Kind of annoying that they assumed we wanted one bed...if i wanted one, I would have booked a room with one...no?! So as we stood there, the front desk staff switched our room with a single woman checking in next to us, telling her she got "an upgrade" to a queen bed, and charged her 100$ more than what I paid for that room online. After alot of hassle, we got our 2 beds. Just...shifty.
