Expert review of Best Western Primrose Downtown

Youthful convention hotel a block from downtown shopping and restaurants.

This 335-room property on Carlton Street (the continuation of College to the east of Yonge) can be a boisterous choice during term time — it's popular with students, being right beside Ryerson University. But I reckon the free WiFi and perfect downtown location makes up for any quibbles.

Location: 

Great: Right by Ryerson University and the Gay Village, on the College streetcar line, one block from the busy College subway station. It's on the coner of slightly seedy and somewhat drab Jarvis Street and Carlton — it's safe, but not spectacular-looking.

Bedrooms: 

Good: free WiFi and comfortable beds win this one points.

Public areas: 

There's a seasonal restaurant bar, seasonal pool, useful 24-hour business centre, saunas and more perks than you'd expect at the calibre of property. The lobby's Tim Horton's coffee and doughnut shop is an extra plus.

Eating and drinking: 

The restaurant is best for breakfast and is only open seasonally. The Tim Hortons is a more reliable choice, though — perfect for coffee and a snack. Their chilli bowls are my favourite.

Leisure facilities: 

The outdoor, heated pool is only seasonally, but there's a fitness centre and saunas for the rest of the year.

Service: 

Staff are usually pretty nice and friendly.
