Across the street from Union Station, and blocks from many popular sites
Located in Toronto's Financial District, and blocks away from the Distillery District and Entertainment District, The Strathcona Hotel sits near popular sites such as the CN Tower, one of the world's tallest buildings, with an observation deck overlooking the city, and Rogers Centre.
Once an industrial park, Toronto's Entertainment District is now a bustling home to nightclubs, theaters, such as Roy Thomson Hall where the Toronto Symphony Orchestra performs, and Rogers Centre, the Blue Jays' stadium. The nearby Financial District is composed of skyscrapers housing law firms, corporate headquarters, and offices, and the Distillery District is one of Toronto's historic gems. The district got it's name from the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, formerly in operation in the area as the largest distillery in the world. Claiming the largest sample of Victorian-era architecture in North America, the Distillery District recently came out of a redevelopment which included the institution of numerous shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
This eco-friendly, mid-range hotel sits in the heart of Downtown Toronto, blocks from shops, restaurants and popular sites. The rooms are small but clean, with light wood floors, minimalist contemporary decor, and ultra-comfy beds -- but rooms at the nearby Hotel Victoria are perhaps a tad more stylish, so it's worth comparing rates.
