Exceptional 10.0
Stayed in the Novotel for 3 nights. Great location 10 mins walk from Union station in pretty much a straight line. Located on the esplanade with plenty of brew houses and places to eat right outside and about 5mins walk to the St Laurence Market areas which is class! Roughly 20mins walk back past Union to the CN tower and Aquarium and approx 15min walk down towards the harbour/ferry terminal so well placed. Room was perfectly adequate for my needs and was clean on arrival. No complaints with check in/out and the desk staff were helpful. One slight issue was i think the deposit hold they put on your card during the stay is excessive (over 200C$) and it still hasnt lifted as i write this review. Surely a smaller deposit would suffice unless a problem arose. Buffet breakfast was tasty and plentiful and set me up perfectly for exploring Toronto all day. Restaurant staff were friendly and very helpful. To surmise would i stay here again? Absolutely! Bar the deposit issue i thought that the Novotel is a lovely smaller type hotel (which I prefer) is clean with friendly staff and is in a great location. Thanks Novotel hope to see you and fantastic Toronto again soon! Reccomended!

Lovely Hotel.
We had a long trip from the UK with delayed flight and bad traffic delays getting into the city later than expected, then the satnav/gps started playing up with all the tall glass fronted buildings confusing the signal, but when we got to the hotel we felt really pleased, the reception staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Car parking is easy but a bit pricey, when we got up to our room what a surprise, it wasn,t a really big room, but for us just right, spotlessly clean and later on we found the bed so comfortable we soon got over our lousy trip. There are restaurants and bars all around, a short walk gets you to the shopping centre, the waterfront and the CN tower, also the market is just a very short walk away so all in all everything is easy to get to, the room we stayed in didn,t have much of a view, but we don,t stay in the room long, even though we looked over the street with all the bars and restaurants opposite, there was no noise, not even from other rooms which is very unusual.Every member of the hotel staff we came across were so helpful and pleasant, we were very pleased we chose this hotel to stay at. We would have no hesitation staying here again.

Wonderfully located downtown hotel
The hotel was located in a downtown area which made it useful to get to sightseeing places e.g. St Lawerance Market, CN Tower and Union Station all within a few minutes walking distance. There are bars and restaurants opposite the hotel. A minimarket next door selling snacks which is useful. The market which is five minutes away has a number of eating places especially breakfast if you don't want to eat in the hotel. It was a comfortable room although you might have a slight problem with a little noise of construction work taking place next door. That mostly starts at about 7.00 am. Don't let that distract you unless you plan to stay in your room all day. Can't comment on the hotel restaurant as we didn't use it. Room was comfortable but recommend bring your own coffee and tea as choice is limited. There is free wi fi. Staff are friendly and helpful. Love the shower unit in the room! Towels are changed everyday. There is a safe in the room
