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
