Great Stay at Saint James...

Pros: The hotel is very clean and modern and extra precautions were put in place due to the Covid situation. There is complimentary coffee/ espresso in the lobby. All employees are very professional, friendly, helpful. At checkin I received a gift bag with chips, water and a snack bar along with a coupon for breakfast at Freshies which is in the hotel. One orders from a menu and picks up in the morning. The breakfast is very full and included complimentary orange juice. The room is very well appointed and above average in size and full of amenities such as safe, slippers, bathrobe. Everything was perfect such as comfortable bed, minifridge, microwave, desk, sofa and good sized TV. The bathroom was good size and very clean. I had a restful sleep. In the evening I asked for an received an extra snack bar after eating some spicy food outside. This hotel would be great for extended stay as lots of closet, drawer space and laundry room. This hotel is a tremendous value.
Cons: This is not really a criticism but I would have liked a room with a bathtub as opposed to a shower. However there was a potential room available with a tub in an area where they are renovating. In the future once renovations are complete this will not be an issue.

Pros: The hotel is new ( 4 years old) extremely clean. Front staff are all very friendly, helpful and professional. Lobby is quite modern with tv and a complimentary coffee/ cappuccino machine. The room is beautiful and rather large. I stayed in a King room with nice, comfortable bed. The room is fully equipped with a coffeemaker, minifridge, microwave, slippers, safe, large T.V, large closet, desk. The bathroom is quite modern with plenty of towels and toiletries. I received a healthy breakfast of eggs and fruit as well as complimentary bottle of water, nature bar and snacks. It was very quiet.
Cons: The only criticism which was not a major issue for me was the heating/ cooling system. I found it was a bit noisy when I turned on the heat and the whole system could be updated. I prefer controls on the wall as opposed to the old style heating/ cooling unit.

Pros: Very nice room, especially for the price. Loved the bathroom. Comfortable, clean and relatively quiet considering we were in a room overlooking a main street in a large city. Friendly staff. great location for us as it's in the hospital district. Definitely a diamond in the rough.
Cons: Loved that we were given a complimentary breakfast but were not impressed by the menu choices and that the supposedly hot meals were lukewarm at best. It's sort of a take out deal so we took it out...and tossed it.

Another Great Stay at The...

Pros: The hotel is new ( 4 years old) extremely clean. Front staff are all very friendly, helpful and professional. Lobby is quite modern with tv and a complimentary coffee/ cappuccino machine. The room is beautiful and rather large. I stayed in a King room with nice, comfortable bed. The room is fully equipped with a coffeemaker, minifridge, microwave, slippers, safe, large T.V, large closet, desk. The bathroom is quite modern with plenty of towels and toiletries. I received a healthy breakfast of eggs and fruit as well as complimentary bottle of water, nature bar and snacks. It was very quiet.
Cons: The only criticism which was not a major issue for me was the heating/ cooling system. I found it was a bit noisy when I turned on the heat and the whole system could be updated. I prefer controls on the wall as opposed to the old style heating/ cooling unit.

Lovely Stay at The Saint...

Pros: The hotel is relatively new and very clean and modern. Checkin was very smooth and reception friendly and gracious. Room was well appointed with everything I needed including fridge , microwave , safe and even slippers and bathrobe. There are lots of electrical outlets, light sources and Wifi was great as well as T.V. I had a very quiet restful night. The Bathroom was very clean and well stocked with toiletries, towels etc. A healthy breakfast of eggs and fresh fruit was included in price. In addition to in suite coffeemaker there is complimentary coffee, espresso, cappuccino in the lobby. I was granted a late checkout. Great value for money especially for Toronto which is an expensive city.
Cons: Nothing

Excellent service, room condition and...

Pros: Love that it was clean and one has everything that might be needed. Also the option to leave your luggage free of charge prior to pick-up.
Cons: Breakfast is a bit too heavy. I would recommend having something else as an option. Even though have had 3 breakfasts included did not really use them.

Next time in T.O. we'll...

Pros: Very nice room, especially for the price. Loved the bathroom. Comfortable, clean and relatively quiet considering we were in a room overlooking a main street in a large city. Friendly staff. great location for us as it's in the hospital district. Definitely a diamond in the rough.
Cons: Loved that we were given a complimentary breakfast but were not impressed by the menu choices and that the supposedly hot meals were lukewarm at best. It's sort of a take out deal so we took it out...and tossed it.
