The room was exactly what I want .... clean , no frills and fair priced . The music in the bar is superb jazz. Breakfast...

Of course this a jazz/blues bar/hotel and they are packed with performances at a reduced fee for guests of the hotel . We enjoyed a great breakfast here as well, they...

The bands are great, the food tasty (even breakfast), location super for shopping and near the subway. The rooms are like hostel rooms, small and don't judge to harshly. It is great fun to watch a band and then just wander up to bed at the end of the night - no cab necessary. There is a great bakery near...

I have to admit I enjoyed the stay in the Rex Hotel although I would not describe the whole experience as a good value for money. In other words it is expensive for what you get. The location is perfect as I love shopping on Queen Street, but that comes with the high level of street noises until late. The...

A great breakfast for under $12 total omelet, sausage, potatoes, toast, coffee and it all tastes good! They have a good lunch and dinner as well. Usually in the afternoon you get to enjoy live jazz almost every day.

Stayed here one night in December. Price was great for location. We stayed in room 222 and the radiator heating was not working. Staff left an electric heater in the room which we needed to have on all night, and the room still wasn't quite warm enough. (outside temperature was -2C). Walls in bathroom were very dirty and had a...

We stayed here and what I loved about it was the atmosphere. This place makes me think of Toronto and when I was growing up here. I just feel comfortable here. Nothing fancy. Low cost. Friendly staff and people! This place is in the heart of the city so you can walk to many bars or restaurants or a quick...

Staying in Queen Street and West Queen West

Neighbourhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
