The staff, especially Julian Darisse, who we dealt with upon arrival was excellent. We arrived early with a 3 month old baby with us and he set up a room immediately so the baby and parents could rest. Our room was ready 2 hours later and he let us know immediately so we could rest as well. We felt very pampered and cared for during our stay by all the staff we met. Such a wonderful stay in Toronto.

The Strathcona is a very pleasant hotel located in downtown Toronto. Our first impression of our was that it was very small. However, it is also well-laid out so the size did not become an issue - very similar to hotels I have experienced in other countries, such as in Amsterdam. The view from the window was non-existent - it overlooked the wall of the building next door and, as such, had no view whatsoever.
The reception staff were universally excellent, cheerful and helpful.
For breakfast we had the buffet, which was unusual in that the standard scrambled eggs were fresh and tender, the sausages were cooked perfectly, and not tough, and the bacon was not so crisp that it broke if you looked at it wrong. The fried potatoes were slightly better than we have experienced in other hotels, and far better than in fast food restaurants.
Its proximity to the train station was out main reason for selecting this hotel, and we were pleasantly pleased to discover that it was so close to the station that I, who have mobility issues, had no problem walking to the hotel.
All in all, this was a pleasant hotel which we will definitely choose when next we got to Toronto.

Very nice room. Huge shower and bath tub. Not sure if anybody on vacation downtown needs such a huge bath tub. For a hotel, I would think this would be a waste of water. Expensive but it is downtown Toronto so was expected.

Toronto’s culturally diverse downtown includes the CN Tower, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Art Gallery of Ontario. Air Canada Centre is home to the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Rogers Centre features the Blue Jays. Toronto’s underground city is a great way to get around the downtown core when the temperature drops. Known as the PATH, it is also the world’s largest subterranean shopping center.
