How to Get There
The place I was visiting put me up at Pantages so I visited a new side of the Yonge and Dundas square. The room is basic but clean. WiFi is an extra charge. The associated restaurant has a limited menu and wine list but good food. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy and Toronto has joined the dubious club with Seattle, San Francisco and others with lots of street people, people sleeping on the streets, a tinge of urine from people going on the sidewalks or walls ... and sadly feces on the street as well. Toronto is not as bad as San Francisco but this is not a tourist attraction nor does it make the city pleasant to visit. Odd that the city does not appears to address this problem. The hotel is unfortunately in the area where you will encounter this experience. The location is close to several theaters so that is an attraction. When theater is open the streets are full of theater goers. There are some good restaurants only a few blocks away.
The hotel has a great location, but the personnel does not deliver good service. The cleaning ladies make a lot of noise (laughing, screaming, slamming doors, throwing clothes hooks) very early in the morning (8 am), and the receptionist acted rude when I reported the scandal. Never coming back because of the terrible service I received.
Allright position and accommodation. Right near downtown, spacious room with a king size bed and whatever else
But we thought to breakfast in the hotel.
What a bad thinking. Long waiting and bad taste.
