8/10 Very good

Sept 2023
Great modern room, only complaint was that there was only 1 towel. I called to ask for another and they said it was in a closet in the lobby. I couldn’t find any towels. But otherwise a nice place.

You can not get into the building without registering ahead of arrival and receiving the code. We had trouble preregistering so made sure to arrive when they said there is someone there. Even though the person could see us struggle through the one-way glass it was only b/c another guest let us in that we were able to register manually. Every time you go in and out you have to enter the code at 2 different doors and again at your room door. If you do it manually it gives anyone plenty of time to see you, and your code if you're not careful. If you use the app, you better pray you have enough battery left at the end of the day when you get back. You will also need data, which, especially if you're not Canadian you may or may not have. Same for if you are in the need the code to get out. Nowhere will you find a way to call for help if your phone is lost, dead or forgotten. The BR is tiny, I had to turn and sidestep to get around the bed, and I have a small build. The kitchen is tiny, the coffee maker was over in the LR area. They LR area is sufficient and the bathroom was spacious. And btw, our bathroom still had towel from the last guest. They said they'd come get it. We were there 5 days but they never did. AND you should know big brother is listening, and for all I know maybe watching, There is something in the room that notifies them if there is too much noise.

Great Stay
We had a wonderful experience at the Sonder O'Conner. The only thing I would add to the unit wonder be a sponge or dishcloth for washing dishes. Thanks

Give this a pass unless you are solo
Way too small for two people. No room to move in the room. Very old furnishings and a ridiculously small kitchen that had a dishwasher that was the size of a toaster oven. The only good thing was the location.
