An Average Hotel for an Average Price

Not a bad hotel. Very average. Ice machine on many floors did not work. Other than that, an okay experience.

Great location, average accommodations

We chose to stay at the Primrose because it was near the area of Toronto that we came to visit, and was the best price in comparison with other hotels in that area, as well as modernized rooms. Pros: Staff was friendly and very accommodating, originally there was a room mix-up and they were very concerned with our happiness and acceptance of the room we were moved into. The bed was comfortable and the floor was quiet. Cons: -The parking garage is just behind the hotel and you can reach it by elevator from your room, which is great, but it is very small and awkward and impossible to navigate smoothly. Turning every corner in that garage meant backing up a few times and correcting so That my car would not scrape against the walls. With concentration and patience it is doable, but a very uncomfortable experience. - the rooms are modernized, but they do not have an atmosphere of clean and new and fresh. The rooms are fine and I would stay here again of I was traveling on my own, however it does not have the right comfortable, fresh and relaxing presence for a romantic weekend.

Harbord street has a lot of romantic restaurants to choose from, we enjoyed our meal at Loire restaurant very much and will return to try others in that area.

Good value for the price

Not too close to downtown, so that involved a $15 cab ride each time we were either coming or going. That said, the room rates were half of what they typically are downtown, so it's a better deal overall. Hotel very close to Maple Leaf Gardens, so lots of history nearby. The gym is quite small. Cardio and weights are actually in two separate rooms and need a little makeover IMHO. Staff was great and rooms were spacious and clean.

A good value for Toronto

Good location for my needs and the price was right. Half the hotel is being used as a dorm so ask for a quiet room. The elevators are slow and get crowded from all the students, but it really isn't a problem. Breakfast staff seemed overworked and not very service-oriented, although buffet was ok.

Christmas in Toronto

We only slept here and it was a perfect location for us close to where family lives, the theatres and town. My only complaint was the pillows. Although they look wonderful, I need a low pillow or my neck gets sore. These big high ones didn't work for me and I wish there was a choice. I ended up using my coat rolled to the right height. The bed itself was very comfortable.

Clean room

I had a family event to attend in Toronto, so I was staying over at Primrose Hotel. I was surprise how different it looks from last I was there. It looked modern and amazing. Room was clean and updated. Love the whole new look. Had breakfast there and it was GREAT!! If anyone is looking for a place to stay during their stay in Toronto, I would recommend Primrose Hotel.
