Good value and pet-friendly downtown Toronto hotel with free breakfast and free Wi-Fi
Super 8, located in downtown Toronto's Chinatown district, is a 2-star accommodation that has a lot going for it. Although it's a 17-minute walk to the Mt. Sinai Hospital from here, the money you save on the room will free up some cash for a 6-minute cab ride. It's only about a 3-minute walk to the Dundas streetcar for a public transit ride to the hospital as well. It is one of the only hotels in the downtown that provides free breakfast and Wi-Fi. They also subsidize parking for their guests by about half if you pay for it at the front desk, rather than at the parkade exit. They have large, clean and well-equipped rooms with comfortable beds. All rooms come with microwaves and mini-fridges and flat screen TVs. There is also an on-site laundromat for guest use.
