We recently visited Toronto to watch the Red Sox vs Blue Jays series at the Rogers Center. The hotel's approximity to the train station and the Rogers Center is all that is good about this Strathcona hotel.
Lukewarm reception,not at all welcoming.
We believed were getting a good deal until we entered our room..limited space, viewless and dark. The soundproofing is questionable. We would hear our neighbour's sneezing and the occasional breaking wind in the middle of the night... Bravo! Maestro,bravo!
Poor ventilation in the room made it feel very stuffy. One elevator working-we took stairs most of the time because we were waiting to long for it. The constant slamming from our neighbour's doors was a nightly nuisance. Not a good night's sleep or a good stay.
The rooms were clean, except the overall stay was very uncomfortable. I thought I was comfortable paying 130 something dollars per night. After that trip, We'll probe around next time for better value. There are hotels offering close to or better, to what we paid, offering more services and better value.
WE FELT RIPPED OFF, DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU TOO.
