Great Hotel
I had a lovely stay at the St. James Hotel. We arrived a couple hours before check in but since there was a clean room available we were allowed to check in early. I arrived on my birthday and they very sweetly placed a birthday card and delicious box of chocolates in my room! Our room and the overall hotel was clean, service was good and the complementary freshii breakfast was great (except for the Cali bowl...I personally didn’t like it and thought it was runny and lacked flavor). The location was great as well, because it was so close to the city center we were able to walk virtually everywhere we wanted to go. It was also conveniently close to a subway station (Yonge/Dundas) when we had a slightly longer commute or needed a little shelter from the cold or rain. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to others.

The Saint James: Comfortable and Convenient
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at The Saint James. It is close to the subway, along with fun neighborhoods in downtown Toronto.
Peter, us4 night trip
Very Good 8.0
All was good, except for the healthy breakfast included in the price that at least for us it is not that healthy, so we did not have breakfast in the hotel.

Nice stay, liked the location
Coffee line was always long and coffee wasn't great but everything else was fantastic.

Very Good 8.0
Nice place with good sized rooms and very comfortable. However the breakfast place needs more people working there and there was always a wait for the coffee. That silly machine that slowly grinds out one cup at a time should be replaced with a coffee pot or urn that is quick and easy.

A great place to stay
This is a great place to stay. The guys at the front desk are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and well cleaned. Almost everything is within walking distance. You should definitely take the ferry to Toronto Islands. If you come back after sunset, you can get great pictures of the skyline. Would definitely stay here again.

If the Raptors had lost it wouldn’t not have been so noisy.
