Look, it you're used to the Hilton or The Peninsula, this place might not be for you. If you're more a traveler than a tourist, however, and appreciate good value and great location, the Grange place is a fine choice.
I stayed there two nights and loved the location. Yes, it has some project-like apartments across the street, but they seemed to be occupied more by elderly Asian ladies than by anyone who looked like a real threat. People walked the streets freely without any apparent fear, and I strolled the neighborhood at night without a problem. Just use a little common sense.
The hotel is one block from the fascinating Chinatown district and two blocks from the bustling and vibrant Queen Street. If I were a bit younger, I would have enjoyed the clubs along Queen. The hotel is also a block from a pleasant park and near various food stores to stock your fridge at the Grange.
The hotel/apartment is nothing fancy but more than adequate with a kitchenette and plenty of cable channels. Besides, who comes to Toronto to hang out at the hotel? Parking was only $5/night, far cheaper than he fancy hotels, and the lot is pretty well enclosed (although people can technically get into the lot if they really try). I saw no problems with the parking or security.
Again, it's a good value and a excellent location. My only fear is that it'll get too popular as more people learn about it.
