On a recent Saturday, my husband and I rode our bikes down to the Toronto waterfront from Richmond Hill, a 40K ride we've done before but we usually just turn around and take the subway/bus back north the same day. This time, we decided to stay the night downtown, go to a Jays game, and have dinner at Massimo Capra's lovely restaurant, Mistura. We used Marriott points to book the room and, to our delight, they gave us a beautifully appointed suite with a bathroom the size of a standard hotel room. The Renaissance Toronto is a lovely, grand hotel with a wonderful bar overlooking the baseball field (which I will forever call the Skydome!), and a number of rooms that also overlook the field. I've always loved what Marriott does with their Renaissance hotels, but this is one of their best renovations and restorations that I've seen. Everyone we encountered, from the front desk staff to the bell captain (who offered to valet park our bikes - ha) to the housekeepers, was friendly and provided outstanding customer service. Because it was booked on points, they could have put us in a small room with double beds but, true to Marriott style, they put us in that wonderful suite. This kind of over-the-top customer service, coupled with things like gifting me with a year of gold status after I was off the road for a year, make Marriott the top hotel brand in the world, in my former road-warrior view.
