    Chilled hotel over a cool bar, with friendly people and interesting beers. Lovely breakfast with plenty of good coffee. Easy walk to Union Station, and plenty of restaurants/bars. Hope to be back next year.

    Yes. I'm sorry I don't know the cost. I never drove when I lived there. There is an excellent public transportation system, and it's very easy to hail a taxi right in front of the Rex at any time.
