Residence Inn Toronto Downtown/Entertainment District

Reviewed 28 December 2009

We just returned from our stay at the Residence Inn Toronto Downtown. We arrived after a grueling 8 hour drive from NY to the hotel. We were greeted at the door by the doorman who helped us with all of our luggage and advised us about parking options. We decided to valet our car, but there are numerous parking lots all around the hotel.

I checked in at the front desk quickly and we were then directed to our room on the 20th floor. The room was HUGE! The room had a king size bed, 2 lounging chairs, a desk and chair, a pull out couch and a full kitchen with a dining table and chairs. The room was spotless and smelled fresh and clean. The heat was up very high when we arrived. We turned the thermostat down to 67 degree F, and we were still quite comfortable. The bedding was clean and warm, and the bed was roomy and comfortable. The bathroom was large with an amazing shower head. I have very thick hair, and it was so easy to rinse the soap and conditioner out of my hair with the water pressure from the shower head.

My children swam in the pool. It was small, but good enough for a swim. My husband enjoyed the hot tub, which he found very relaxing. There was a gym right off the pool area which was small and had a couple of machines and some weights. There was also an office with a couple of computers in the same area.

I only had two complaints about the hotel ... One was the towels in the room. They consistantly left only 3 towels in the bathroom when we had 4 guests. Two was the free breakfast. It;s a great concept, but unfortunately, we never got a chance to enjoy it because it was so crowded. We could not get anywhere near the buffet area. The room where breakfast is served is VERY small and cannot accomodate the number of guests in a 22 floor hotel.

Parking did cost $35 per night if you valeted your car.

Wayne Gretsky's restaurant is right around the corner, and the Hockey Hall of Fame is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We ate dinner at Jack Astor's Bar & Grill where we had delicious food in a fun and festive atmosphere.

Beyond these two complaints, I have nothing bad to say about the hotel. The staff was friendly, the rooms were spacious and comfortable and the facilities were modern. I wou

There is a reason this place is #1. It is well-deserved. Great location for hockey fans, within easy walking distance to the important stuff. The game, Hockey Hall of Fame, and Wayne Gretzky's restaurant.

All the other reviews say it all!

We stayed for 4 nights in a studio room. Room was huge with fully fitted kitchen, lounge area with large flat screen TV, huge bed and seperate wash facilities and bathroom.

Staff were very friendly recommending places to eat and drink.

Being in the entertainment district its a short walk from many bars and restaurants (would recommend Jo Mamas for good food at a reasonable price with live music).

Breakfast was great. I nipped down every morning to pick up a selection of sausage, bacon and egg to make McD style muffins in the room to fill up before a long days activities.

In a nutshell I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Toronto and will definately stay here again when I return.

I can't say anything negative about this hotel. We stayed in a studio room for 5 nights and it was larger than most of the previous Residence Inn rooms that we've stayed in. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The housekeeping girls went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for our room. We traveled with our dog, so I didn't require housekeeping on a daily basis. The breakfast was a superb buffet considering the amount of people who are served!

We did opt to use their parking at $35/day because we were in and out of the hotel 3 or 4 times a day. There is municipal parking next to the Marriott, but you will pay $15 each time you remove your car and return it.

If you are over 62, you can get really good rates by joining the Marriott Rewards program.

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for one night the weekend of Thanksgiving. We were placed on the 15th floor which had an awesome view of the CN Tower. The location is perfect - close to the train and bus stations, 2 subway stations, the CN Tower, and restaurants.

Everything about our experience at The Marriott was excellent. The doorman hailed us cabs, the front staff helped us with directions to the subway, and the staff even provided a sticky roller for my boyfriend's cat-hairy dress shirt.

The room was immaculately clean and the amenities were great. There was popcorn, tea, and coffee in a basket in the room. There is no room service, but there was a huge booklet of various take-out we could have ordered in, in addition to the few snacks available to purchase in the downstairs lobby. We also made use of the ironing board and iron. Everything in the room was clean and looked brand new.

We also liked the pool and hot tub. There was a work-out room and a room with computers as well.

The breakfast buffet was fantastic. It had a huge variety of food and we did not leave hungry! It was a little busy, but I was able to grab us a table and we didn't care too much that the room was packed. I kind of enjoyed the buzz and excitement of breakfast. If you're looking for a quiet, sit down meal, take your breakfast upstairs to your room.

Overall, A+ service, room, and food. I can't wait to stay again!
