Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very pleased with our experience overall. The rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. There were three of us in the room and we did not feel cramped at all. We were on the 8th floor facing the courtyard where vehicles drop guests off and found it to be quiet. All of the staff were very friendly. The complimentary breakfast was a mixture of hot and cold foods, offering something for everyone. It can get very busy there in the mornings but there is a lot of seating in the breakfast area. As well, the staff were consistently topping the food up so that things did not run out. We found the free WIFI to work well. We plan to stay here again the next time we visit Toronto.

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown a few times as it is central enough for inexpensive cab/Uber rides and the rooms are recently renovated. Breakfast was included in our stay and it's a good mix of hot and continental. However, this time we were going because it is central to the Jazz Bistro and Reservoir Lounge. It's great when your hotel is surrounded by incredible restaurants/markets/unique clubs.

I had to stay at a hotel when the place I was previously staying at had a potential COVID exposure so I couldn't return for a week until they were cleared.

This hotel was the best price and very close to where I needed to be for the 2 nights I was in Toronto. The initial check-in was a little different but this was the first time I was staying at a hotel since the pandemic started. It was all contactless and while they normally offer a breakfast bar during the stay they had prepackaged foods like granola bars, yogurt cups, etc. for breakfast due to the restrictions.

The room I stayed in was on the 16th floor and had a partial view of the CN Tower which was nice. It was a quiet room and quite clean overall. The bathroom was very bright and had a nice shower in it. There was a microwave and mini fridge and safe in the room with a small workspace and TV. I was able to connect to their internet with no trouble. (I used wifi but it looked like there was a spot for a wired connection) The one thing I didn't like was the lamp on the worktable I had in the room was an odd touch lamp, I prefer ones with a switch. Otherwise though the stay was nice and I had everything I needed.

The staff were friendly and there is underground parking available (I already had parking nearby from my previous accommodation). The main lobby area is secured by keycard or buzzer through the main entrance. Overall, if I needed to stay for a couple nights in the same area I would have no problem going back to this location.

Great Stay !!! From the check-in desk, to staff service, to cleanliness and location, this hotel earns a 5 🌟 in my opinion.

We had a slight mix up with our Hotels.com reservation, but not to worry - the assistant manager quickly & professionally took care of the issue and we were on our way.

The room is clean and comfy with all expected comforts. I appreciate the less waste in the room toiletries with wall mounted bottles of lovely JR Watkins shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.

Breakfast was typical hotel breakfast - but everything was bright, clean, well stocked and hot/fresh.

Overall, our stay was perfect for our Toronto getaway during Christmas market season.

Well done Holiday Inn Express ! You done fantastic for service, comfort and professionalism.

We reserved for 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Express. We arrived around 1 PM and got our room even though the check in was at 3 PM. We also took the underground parking option (30$/day - taxes included).

The room (#802) has the typical amenities (safe, fridge, dryer, coffee machine (Keurig), soap/shampoo, etc...). You also get free Wi-Fi. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean.

The hotel does not do any room service during your stay unless requested 24 hours in advance.

We had breakfast included with the package we took. The breakfast items were mostly the same every day : eggs, sausages, make your own pancakes, fruits (orange/banana), cereals, yogurts, small muffins, orange/apple juice, etc...

The front desk members and other staff were always friendly, helpful and courteous. The room was overall very good as well as the breakfast. The location is great as everything is at a small walking distance. There is a park next to the hotel too.

Overall, everything was excellent. We look forward to staying again at this hotel.

Our stay @HolidayInn made us feel comfortable and happy. This is quite near to Toronto financial district and we were able to spend our time by walking, biking and sort of seeing the downtown. Rooms are very tidy and staff are very supportive especially @Ravish Kumar has specially allocated a room with city view which is certainly worth to each penny. This hotel is in a great place and well connected with public transportation , restaurants and supermarkets.

I finally felt my choice is good after cancelling another hotel and moving here.

We needed to make a quick exit from the nightmare AirBnB we were staying at at 11pm on a Thursday night. We needed accommodations for my fiance and I plus our 16mo daughter.

The two nightshift staff, Arul and Willie, were exceptional in helping set us up in a two queen room isolated at the end of a hallway to ensure a quiet space for us and especially our daughter to sleep. They extended our check out time until noon to give all of us plenty of time to get in a really good night's sleep and sleep in, which our daughter badly needed after two horrible nights.

I hope Arul and Willie are rewarded by management because they went above and beyond to help make it a quiet, restful night for our family.

This property is located at the center of downtown and at a walkable distance from many of the tourist destinations. The rooms are very spacious, clean and well maintained. The staffs were very helpful, I would like to thank Mr. Sugu at the reception, who was very kind and welcoming. He guided us with the information which a tourist or an immigrant is looking for.

As a suggestion, I would request the hotel management to have some changes in the breakfast menu as it gets bored, if a tourist is staying for more than four days.

I would give a five star rating for my six nights stay in this hotel.

Clean, clean, clean. Great location. No restaurant in the hotel, but there are lots of local restaurants and shops nearby. Room price included a hot breakfast with a large array of food items from cereal, to eggs, sausage/bacon, yogurt, fresh fruit, pancakes, muffins, warm cinnamon buns, etc. and it was constantly being replenished. Room also included a mini fridge and a microwave. All the team - from reservations to housekeeping to breakfast service to maintenance were terrific and moral seemed very high. Friendly, knowledgeable about the area, directions, etc. We stayed here two nights and will definitely be back.
