    The staff was awesome -- unbelievably helpful in every situation. I am shocked at some of the reviews that criticize them. Unless there have been recent changes, I couldn't disagree more. They were quick to answer questions, knowledgeable, and always kind. It's a VERY old...More

    In the center of Toronto. Basic stuff, clean, friendly staff, back yard bar, very good selection on services. Bus- and streetcar stops just around the corner. Very good value/money ratio. Breakfast ( modest) included. Outdoor and indoor bar.

    Downtown West
    Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner
    Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the
    outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is
    celebrated by a number of monuments and museums,
    giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier
    destination for modern art, people here stroll through
    the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy
    the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe
