Hotels in Toronto

Looking at the hotels in Toronto listed on booking.com, I was thinking whether it is possible to see their scores on a map. In a way that makes it easier to understand how perceived quality of service may vary with location.

Here is how the city map looks like:

Here are the hotels within the city boundaries and their current scores on booking.com:

Hotels by score in Toronto

If we zoom on the red spot:

Hotels by score in Toronto

Here we see that the red spot has a disproportionately large number of listed hotels compared with the rest of the city. The bigger the dots, the higher the hotel scores. We see some overlap of coordinates and brighter colors, but this only indicates greater density.

Can you imagine which hotels receive the most reviews?

Hotels by number of reviews in Toronto

That the circles are so small means that few hotels get a disproportionate amount of reviews and relative to that other hotels receive much less.

If we zoom on the orange spot we can see some large circles:

We can also select only the top hotels with score above 9.6, which was the result of over 30 reviews:

Around longitude -79.40 and latitude 43.65 we see the largest concentration of such hotels:

It would not be surprising if these hotels are charging premium prices to deliver such a high quality of service. Note that the scores shown here are subject to constant changes and by the time you read this they might have changed. Use your own judgement to weigh on your options at the right time.
