November

On November 11th we went to the Remembrance Day Parade in Downtown Ottawa at which all the foreign diplomats were there as well as Prince Charles & Camila. Although not as big as London's, there was a 21 gun salute and a fly over by six F18 fighter jets which I have to say I enjoyed.

Day 1: toronto, ontario

A travel blog entry by brianbruan

It is early afternoon and I am about to take off.

I have not had a wink of sleep for near twenty-four hours, however the satisfaction of having parsed down my to-do list is well worth the daze I currently find myself swimming in.

My aim is to drive to Waterloo, where a few years ago I studied, and to fluidly blend into the student body to sneak a good nap in a library soft chair.

Today was a sad but exciting day as I had to move out of Kellie's place so after we woke up late, i packed my bags and moved only a few places down the road to the house of her friends that I met a few days ago. The house is sick. I have a fold out bed, a pillow and a down blanket in my own little room :).

After I was settled we all went into the city to have a few drinks. We went to a sports bar to watch the hockey and met up with a Colombian girl who took ...

Getting Closer

... for about 2 hours. Among the many things you don't want to hear the captain of your plane say over the PA system: "is there a doctor on board?" A woman across the aisle from us, who had apparently had too much to drink, was slumped over in her seat, having difficulty breathing, and was basically non-responsive. There were two doctors on the flight who came to help. After a few hours and some oxygen, she was back upright. But add in the jet lag and that's going to be one nasty ...

Watch the games at Gonzalo's

A travel blog entry by ivangui

I was looking forward to this for the whole week. After work we left early and went to Gonzalo's, although we stopped at Gaby's house and said hello to her parents and picked up sergio. We went home to prepare for the games, which we watched all night. This is a beautiful family with great hospitality. We had drinks, beer, lomo and karaoke. It's always great to see the yayos. I stayed ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Bloor Yorkville Toronto

    Good

    from

    I stayed here for 2 nights in December of 2004. The hotel was fine except none of the 3 ice or soda machines were working. The food in the bar downstairs is also not so good, they did have good drink specials though. The location is great, and I would definatley stay there again.

    Great location and price

    from

    Stayed here October 2004. Great location near subway, restaurantsand museums. Basic accomodation but clean and tidy and good service from staff.

    An excellent place to stay

    from

    This is the place to stay if you want convenient and inexpensive, and don't particularly care about charm. I stayed here a few days in early August, 2004 for a trip to a conference. It is far less expensive than the conference hotels downtown. Using the subway practically right next door to this hotel, I could get downtown in 15 minutes (Toronto's subway system is fantastic, by the way). The room was nothing fancy (perhaps a bit bland), but it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The neighborhood is fairly residential and borders the University of Toronto. Plenty of restaurants within a few blocks, though not a great variety in the food. There is a grocery store across the street, an Internet cafe about 3 blocks away, and for independent cinema buffs there is a great movie theater nearby as well. The staff were always friendly. Ask them how to get to the airport on public transportation - it's very easy. You just go to the end of one of the subway lines and catch a bus that leaves every half hour directly for the airport. A cab ride will cost you much more, and not get you to the airport much faster.

    Very good quality

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for 10 days at the end of September 2004. We found it excellent value for money. The service we got was excellent, especially the reception staff who were very helpful. The hotel was clean and we had fresh linen and towels every day. The hotel is situated in a very good location, central for everything and the subway just around the corner at St George St. From there you can access all parts of Toronto via the subway, which is cheap and also clean. We will definately stay at Quality Hotel Midtown on our next visit.

    Good hotel, Great location

    from

    I stayed at this hotel on my 2nd trip to Toronto, in 2002, it was an excellent choice. The hotel rates were very affordable and the rooms comfortable and clean. The little coffee shop in the front of the building offers good food and fabulous desserts at very affordable prices. But oh, the Location!! The hotel is situated in The Annex - practically smack-dab in the middle of the University of Toronto campus. the neighborhood is a wonderful mix of the residential, the retail and the academic. The fabulous Bata Shoe Museum is directly across the street, the Royal Ontario Museum is 4 blocks away and for serious shoppers, the Rodeo Drive of TO - Avenue Road is practically steps away. There are cool restaurants for every price range and something to see and do around every corner.

    Great Hotel

    from

    I stayed here in for 4 nights mid July 2004. The prices were very good for downtown Toronto. Basically this is your no nonsense type of hotel. There is no pool or wieght room but it is cheap and the rooms are clean. The rooms are standard size, nothing flashy but comfortable. I would definetly reccommend this hotel to others!! The price is very good and the best part is the subway station is across the street. The area was also very nice and quite safe. Definetly worth looking into if your staying in Toronto!

    Ideal location; Safe area for families; Value for money

    from

    My husband and I, along with my 13-year old nephew, just got back from a 2-week vacation in Toronto and we chose the Quality Hotel Midtown because of its ideal location to shops and restaurants and value for money (USD $75 per night for two double beds from Hotels.com). I only gave it 3 stars because it's not the Ritz or Hyatt but it does have just about everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one, except there is no bell man so you are responsible for taking up and bringing down your luggage (carts are available in lobby).

    Great price for D'town...i'd stay there again

    from

    Found this hotel while looking for a cheap stay in toronto. It totalled $143 canadian per night for queen bedroom. Bed & bathroom were very clean and well supplied. The couch and chair did however have many coffee stains all over them..kind of gross :( The stay was very nice and it even had underground parking for $13 per day, which is dirt cheap in d'town. It is about 1 minute walk from the subway and right next to a whole bunch of stuff to do. If you are interested in a great place to hang out...check out Madisons Pub (2 streets west of the hotel on Madison Ave). This place can hold over 3000 people and has something for every type of person. Downstairs is a quiet lounge with tvs, backyard patios with DJ, bar with piano player, outdoor upstair party patio and another bar with HUGE tables and an amazing acoustic guitar player.

    Enjoyed my stay

    from

    Good stay, great value, good people and great location very close to all the entertainment, food and fun. Will recommend anytime. Definitely great value.

    Can't Go Wrong

    from

    What you'd expect...quiet, clean, comfortable, nothing flashy...good location in midtown Toronto. Parking in garage below. Easy in/out. Good for families.
