“The place to pick if you want character”
Reviewed 22 April 2012 via mobile

While in Toronto for business and staying at a chain hotel I decided to pay a visit to the Hotel Victoria to check out the rooms with a view to booking here when I am next in town. I was greeted enthusiastically and courteously by the front desk staff and the hotel was happy to oblige with my request. The manager took the time to show me three different rooms and the on site restaurant. I was very impressed. Yes the rooms are smaller than you find in your typical north American chain hotel but they are absolutely more than adequate in size. The business queen didnt feel at all cramped while the king and double queen rooms were spacious. All the rooms featured modern decor, including lovely clean hardwood floors and crisp white duvets. I am very much looking forward to spending a few nights here with my husband this winter.

Stayed April 2012

Hi Dodgye. Many thanks for sharing your experience of the Hotel Victoria. We know it is hard to be away from home, that is why we aim to make it "Home away from Home" I will gladly pass on your comments to our Front Desk Team, they will be appreciative. We are getting rave reviews of our renovated rooms, we are going to be renovating guest corridors in the near future, you'll be able to see for yourself on your next visit....Hopefully for fun, not work??

I found the lobby and room decor to be elegant and tasteful. The service is courteous and the location is great. It is only a 10 minute walk to the CN Tower and 15 minute to main shopping areas. There are many dining options to choose from. The rooms are small but not stifling.

The only CON I found is that in order to get ice you must personally retrieve it from the basement.

Was here for a conference for 3 days. The hotel is located in a great area, closed to everything and for the price it’s more than worth it. However, please don’t tell me this is a “Boutique Hotel.” It appears that the Loby and rooms have been recently renovated, but they are very small and quite Spartan. On the other hand, they seem to have forgotten about the elevator and hallways. We saw wallpaper hanging, dents, chips and most room doors need to be stripped and painted. Both of our rooms on the seventh floor were clean and tidy but both had creaking floors (fake wood not glued properly??) and no amenities worth mentioning. Don’t expect a minibar, robes, plush towels, or any fancy shampoos or soaps. The beds are very good but although you have four you only get one type of pillow. Large and foamy. These rooms are meant to sleep, shower and get out. Also, it would have been great to have a loveseat or something more than a chair to sit on. Again, for the money and location you can’t complain but don’t elevate it to a boutique. That way everyone knows what to expect.

Hi RaulSlater . Thank you for your candid review of our Hotel. Our lobby and rooms have indeed been renovated within the past year. I am sure we can offer a larger room on your next visit. We shall be renovating our guest elevator and corridors in the not to distant future. We do large scale projects in stages as to limit disruption to our valuable guests, We do offer robes and specialty amenities in our executive rooms, we even have "love" seats at the foot of our upgraded rooms. please contact me directly and I'll personally arrange for you to have the full "boutique" hotel experience.

My girl friend and I went to Toronto for one night for a girls get away and to see War Horse,witch was awesome, we stayed our one night at the Hotel Victoria. We were very happy from the minute we walked in at 10:00 in the morning to see if we could leave our luggage there,as we knew we were very early for check in , and were informed our room would be ready in 10 Minutes. When coming back from parking our car our luggage was already in our room , which was up graded. The room was very nice and clean . I unfortunaly didn't get the two gentlemen's names ,who took car of us when we checked in on Sat, 4/14/12 but they were both very nice and helpful.We both agreed we would stay here again .I'm looking forward to returning with my husband .

Hi Maryellenm Tonawanda, we love having our neighbors from the south visit us! When you visit us again give us a call the day before and we'll see if we can offer early check in, always better if you can freshen up after traveling. I am thrilled that your Front Desk team looked after you from the moment you walking in the door. We look forward to welcoming you and your husband in the near future.

I was extremely happy with the winter special of just 102 dollars per night plus tax for a decent room, and upgraded to the 122-dollar option with a refrigerator and a lot more space. The location is on Yonge Street just south of King, where you are closer to the center of the business district than many well-known financial companies, and where you can alternately walk a few blocks to the waterfront which has been nicely restored in recent years with close-up views of the harbor. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable, and the maid service is of a very high standard. This is the second-oldest hotel in the city, and has been intelligently renovated to keep the best of the century-old details while providing modern benefits like free high-speed wi-fi. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Toronto.

Room Tip: Pick the eighth (top) floor if possible, and get the largest room available.
