Editor's Analysis
Updated on Mar 3, 2014
Overview
The Super 8 Downtown Toronto is attached to the Chinatown Centre mall which is located on the west side of Spadina Avenue, just south of Dundas Street West in downtown Toronto. This hotel is suitable for the budget-conscious traveller providing close access to public transit and many low-cost eating options nearby.

This hotel is a non-smoking property and all guest rooms include free Wi-Fi, free continental breakfast, free local calls, flat screen TVs, microwaves, coffee makers, mini-fridges, and hair dryers.

Hotel amenities include 2 elevators, an exercise room, a business centre, a shiatsu massage room, ice and vending machines, an ATM, dry cleaning services and a laundromat. The hotel has accessible facilities. The Bar Zone Lounge is available for guest use on site.

The hotel utilizes the underground parking facility of the Chinatown Centre mall. Parking, if arranged through the front desk, costs $10 per day, plus tax ($11.30) with no in-and-out privileges. If parking is not arranged through the front desk you will pay $19 per day, plus tax ($21.47) but you will have in-and-out privileges. (The hotel subsidizes parking rates to their guests and the cheaper rate can only be obtained through the front desk.) Please note that the parkade can only be accessed while travelling southbound on Spadina.

Pets are welcome for $15 per day plus tax ($16.95). 

The Super 8 Downtown Toronto hotel is located about a 20-minute walk, or a 10-minute transit ride from the Toronto Eaton Centre, the largest mall in downtown Toronto. Popular tourist attractions such as the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, and the Air Canada Centre are all within an 8-minute drive or 20-30 minute walk of the hotel. There are many restaurants within walking distance of this hotel and can be found on Spadina Avenue, Dundas Street and Queen Street. Kensington Market (urban grocery and eating district) can be reached in 7 minutes on foot. (All travel time estimates: Google Maps)

Verified with a front desk agent on Oct 9, 2013: the parking rate for the mall's parkade is $19 per day plus tax ($21.47)and includes in-and-out privileges, and there is free Wi-Fi in the rooms. (Parking is in an underground section of the Chinatown Centre and thus cars must be under 6 feet in height. If you do not require the use of your car, the cost to leave your car parked all day is $10 plus tax--but only if arranged with the front desk.)

"super 8 downtown toronto"
"The service at the front desk was very good. The location is excellent, close to restaurants, boutiques, etc. The room was very nice, only thing I didn't like was the shower. We had very little water pressure. I liked that they had a variety of foods for breakfast (toast, bagels, english muffins, oatmeal, cereal, muffins). I would stay at this hotel again."

"Best value for the location"
"The service at check-in was great. The receptionist was very helpful with: parking, hotel accommodations and every question I had was answered. The room was spacious and perfect for two. The location of hotel is right in the heart of Chinatown and steps away from Queen St. and shopping and nightlife. It is the best bang for your buck within the blocks of bars and clubs. What I did not like about the hotel was that the bathroom floors weren't clean but other than that the stay was lovely. Would definitely recommend it"
