Days Inn Carlton St / Toronto

Considering staying at this property over
New Years. Anybody stayed there recently
that can give me a report?? Is it decent?
The price is right (129.00 CDN).
Itis advertised as Days Inn & Suites, so I
am hoping it might be a little nicer property?
Thanks/Sherri

I keep reading on this forum of astoundingly low rates people get via Priceline, etc.

The Days Inn seems to be fine; clean, decent location, people say they are happy there, but perhaps you can do better, for about the same money, or less.

Take a look at the Hotel Victoria and The Strathcona, plus the central Toronto locations of various hotels in the Choice Hotels chain. Journey's End on Bloor Street West, for instance.

Thanks BAK . I think I may have found
something we might like a bit better
at a comparable price. The Hotel Intercontintal on Front Street (previously Crowne Plaza). Any comments
good or bad on that property from anyone?

The Intercontinental is in a whold different class, and if the price is OK withyou, it would be a better chyoice for many reasons, and perhaps not quite as good for other reasons.

But, on balance, take the Intercontinental on Front Street

I stayed at the Intercontinental when it was the Crowne Plaza quite a bit. It is a fine place to stay, particularly if you can get one of the "newly renovated" rooms, although perhaps since I was there they've got around to renovating them all. Keep in mind that it is truly a "convention" hotel so feels somewhat anonymous and large.

The person I spoke with told me that they have just done a 30 million dollar
renovation, so that was appealing to me.
The other thing is they have a pool, fitness ctr, jacuzzi etc so if it is the
typical cold we sometimes experience in
Toronto tht time of year,the jacuzzi/pool area will be a welcome site. CAT123 do you remember anything about the size of the pool? Decent size or small??
