Canada Are prometric centers different?

Hi dear friends,
I'm taking CK exam in the couple of months and I wonder if anybody could help me to find is there any preferences for one of the Toronto's Prometric centers? Because I have no idea which kind of differences they may have...
Is the number of vacant seats shows the popularity of the center and as a result its quality?

Default They are the same.

All Prometric centers are standardized. They all have to provide the same testing environment. They all provide standard PC, air conditioning, ear plugs, biometric identification, restrooms, lockers, ...etc

I don't think the fact that one center is overbooked is an indication of its quality as it can simply be due to higher population around that center.
