The location is right—a block from the Eaton Centre, around the corner from the Canon and Elgin theaters—and so is the price. A recent refresh has given these shoebox-sized rooms an IKEA feel. The pine millwork is very econo-Scandinavian. Still, the rooms are clean and the service friendly. The only drawbacks are the aged air-conditioning units, which are awfully noisy. A more intensive renovation may be completed by the time you read this, with local design firm Ciccone Simone doubling down on the Nordic aesthetic. Public spaces too, are undergoing a serious facelift. The hotel was purchased by the same group that owns the Anndore House, so expect cool cachet once the renos are completed.
