    This hotel is in an excellent location which is its main selling point, along with its very comfortable beds and a nice breakfast.

    I didn't appreciate the front desk staff trying to pass off a terrible room right next to the elevators to us, when we were going to be staying for three nights. I must say that once I returned to the front desk and requested a new room, it was given to us with minimal difficulty. This is the second time this has happened.

    Very good

    Great location, St Lawrence market and a number of pubs and restaurants on the same road. Not far from Rogers Centre and CN tower too. Nice reception area and pool.

    The nearby motorway and railway don't make it a peaceful or attractive walk towards harbour area and CN Tower.

    it was a lovely hotel with beautiful decor. The location was quiet.

    I prefer to stay in hotels where you can use the fridge for personal items eg water. it was also not very close to the main shopping area.

    Good

    The hotel ideally situated for lots of things. Front end of hotel was very nice and swish. All staff in the restaurant and reception were excellent and breakfast was very good with a range to fit most visitors.

    Upper floor areas were a bit tired. Room cleanliness left a lot to desired and had to request a change of room due to that fact. On one day we had to go to the front desk to request our room be cleaned at 1800 so seems to be a bit unreliable for this service! Although a non smoking room (5th floor) it smelt of smoke and our friends who were on the 7th floor were worse for the smell. Apparently the sixth floor is a smoking zone - not very good, so beware.

    Superb

    The Novotel is a very pretty hotel and the rooms where excellent for the price. I really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The hotel restaurant, Cafe Nicole" was lovely. We had a few small problems, and the staff very efficiently and willingly solved them.

    Some of the rooms were a bit noisy, but that can be said for almost all hotels. They did not have a crib for us - which was a bit disappointing as they claim to be a family hotel. Apparently, they have only 2 cribs available. It may be wise for them to add a couple more to their inventory.

    Our children enjoyed using the gym equipment and the pool (although this was fairly small). The reception staff were helpful in finding us places to eat. The location was excellent for visiting the main attractions in Toronto.

    Fabulous hotel, we have nothing but good things to say about it! Great location only 10 minutes from the Air Canada Centre, 15 mins from the CN Tower, 5 mins from the waterfront and directly opposite good restaurants and bars (no excessive noise though!). Our breakfast was included and the buffet is highly recommended, wireless internet is free and there are 2 computers for free internet access although you had to pick your time right, we didn't check out the pool but it's there if you want it.

    It is quite conveniently located near Old Town Toronto, St. Lawrence Market and the harbour. Quiet neighborhood. Free Wi-Fi, gym. Internet access at the lobby.

    It's away from downtown, and the nearest subway station, King, is 3 blocks away. Room doors are not sound proof, and I could hear very clearly people talking in the corridor. Old CRT TV.

    All the staff was very pleasant. They treated everyone the same regardless of income.The hotel is in a great location. Very close to food places, shopping, cn Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame and the St. Lawrence Market. You can park your vehicle in a safe parking lot and walk everywhere! Our room was clean, comfortable and home-like. We'd definitely stay again!

    Just some construction on The Esplanade where our room was located, but we were not in the room long enough to experience that. We arrived on Friday afternoon, but went out shortly after we checked into the hotel. There was no construction during the weekend, so all was well!
