Hotel Downtown in Toronto

Can anyone recommend some hotels downtown in TO.

Most important is that it is clean. I usually stay at the Marriott on Yonge which is about 135.00 a night. But was thinking there might be something a bit more interesting around the same price or cheaper.

Basically anywhere around Yonge, south of College would be great.

Cheers,
Mike

Personally, I would try Priceline. You can specify which area of TO you want, how many stars, and what price you are willing to pay. There is a site where people post the results of priceline bids, so you can get a really good idea of what to expect. http://p070.ezboard.com/fpricelineandex ... dingfrm211

Otherwise, I'm an Sheraton fan.

Thanks, especially for the link. It is interesting but I don't like the idea of not choosing my hotel myself.

I won't name where, but recently I stayed in a "decent" Toronto downtown hotel and discovered bed bugs sharing my accomodations. With my luck that's where I would end up with PriceLine! ;-)

Looks quite nice.. . It was $168. I got them to lower it to $150.00.
Includes a continenal breakfast. But they are charging for net access which sucks ($10). $16 for parking. (Not too bad).

I'll let you know how I like it!

Thanks,
Mike

Priceline...

looks interesting, but I am afraid of commitment!
Also, it seems to me when you bid for a room that if someone accepts, you do not have the liberty to choose the hotel you want to stay in.....

Loss of freedom + commitment.... Im not ready for that!

(I'll just put an outrageously low price and see)

I've stayed at the Cambridge Suites (Richmond & Yonge) and enjoyed it. The suite is large with a bedroom separated from the rest of the suite with French doors, a continental breakfast (which you can order via room service), microwave and free cookies/popcorn, and the location is great.

Other recommendations for newer and/or trendier hotels in and around downtown include: Soho Metropolitan, Pantages Hotel, Hilton Toronto, Westin Harbour Castle (especially if you get a harbour-view room), and the Park Hyatt.

If you're planning to be in Toronto from August 13 through 20, the international AIDS conference will take over all hotels in the city. There are no rooms left in the downtown core.

Don't be scared of [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=401]priceline[/rfdlink]. Lots of people use it with great satisfaction. I've saved thousands of $$ using pricline. And, it you're bidding for 3 stars or higher, those hotels are quite nice. I'd rather have the $$ in savings in my pocket, wouldn't you?

I agree, [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=401]priceline[/rfdlink] is the RFD of hotels.
