We were woke at 5am by someone...

I called the hotel directly to inquire about their pet policy and to get a breakdown of all fees. When I arrived I was told that a $100 security fee and a parking fee would be charged, neither was given. The hold on my credit card was $100 more than the room costs. I sent 3 emails to the General...

My friend and I booked a room here for one night over the weekend. We never even checked in because we just felt do, uncomfortable in the area. I can't say much about the rooms since we didn't get that far. I will say I am happy the staff was understanding and allowed us to cancel our room. The area...

I recently booked this hotel for proximity to our excursion and then checked out within an hour. I didn't feel comfortable or safe there. I told the front desk he pictures aren't representative of the hotel and misleading. In didn't even unpack anything. I ended up still being charged for the room which, I suppose is my fault however the...

Stayed at this hotel because we wanted an inexpensive hotel for 1 night stay in Toronto in this specific area. This was the only hotel in the area. The room was fine. Small, but fairly clean. What I would expect from a 2 star hotel for less than $100. My problem was with the front desk staff. I arrived to...

We stayed in this hotel for one night only as we have been transferring from China to UK. Not really sure what to say about this hotel. LOCATION Howard Johnson is a conveniently located near lake shore hotel. It is quite easy to reach from nearest subway station, as you need to take only one tram. There are also two...

Management was absolutely terrible. Rude and unwelcoming, wouldn't recommend this location to anyone. Room was dirty and smelled, paid extra for a fridge which was broken and was told it was to bad that's all they had when asked to switch.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
