“Good location, excellent for business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The Renaissance is at the edge of Toronto's financial district but is attached to the Rogers Centre and right next to the CN Tower, so it is great for both business travellers as well as holiday visitors. Nice rooms with large flat screen TV's, the wifi (for a hotel) is reasonably speedy, the staff (esp. the front desk and in the bar) are great and you can get a nice meal/drink most anytime with a view of the stadium. Strongly recommend the property.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for a room with a view of the stadium. Even if there is no game on it is a hoot.

I was in Toronto for business, though I sure wish I could have stayed for pleasure. Everyone at this hotel was super friendly and accommodating. The room was amazing with a view of the stadium, and did I mention how wonderful the staff is?! I would absolutely come back to this hotel should be travels, business or pleasure, lead me to Toronto. After this stay, I sure hope they do!

Room Tip: I got lucky with a bi-level room with views of the stadium. I'm sure all the rooms are amazing...

Great location to attractions. Two minute walk to CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium and Rogers Centre. Pool is nice and large, could be warmer. Restaurant is adequate but lots of alternate choices very close by. We were given a room upgrade. Fantastic room, the kids will never forget it! Staff went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. We will definitely stay there again.

I have joined my husband at this hotel many times over the years. He works and I play! The location is perfect for exploring Toronto. Nice gym wiith a swimming pool big enough to do laps. Most of all...staff are efficient and exceptionally warm.

We have stayed at this hotel previously - always great! As a result of the ice storm, we had no power from Saturday to Christmas Eve around midnight. During this time we went to the hotel for 2 nights and received exceptional service and great value on short notice.

Thanks you to the staff of Renaissance Toronto Hotel for an unforgettable and eventful stay at your very nice hotel. Everything went pleasantly well from our arrival on a very cold day on Dec 31st. The reception staff was cordial and gave us an upgraded executive suite room that was "quiet"and far from the rest of the hotel rooms with expected jubilant new year's revelers.

The pre-arranged outside delivery floral arrangement was inside the room and greeted my wife and I as we opened the door. A complimentary tray of chocolate dipped strawberry from the hotel staff was another pleasant surprise to congratulate us on our 33rd Wedding Anniversary.

Our specially arranged New Year's Day Lunch at the Arriba restaurant was attended to by 2 cordial Servers. We had delicious meals and all were happy and satisfied with our special Event at the Renaissance Restaurant.

I am glad that we planned our special anniversary celebration at the Toronto Renaissance Hotel!

I stayed here back in the Spring of 2013, the hotel was located pretty well in the city of Toronto. I'd booked a standard double room, however I was going with the intention of upgrading to the baseball stadium view at check in. After enquiring about upgrading the lady on the desk, offered us a free upgrade to the stadium view room.

Entering the upgraded room was a great experience in itself, there was a baseball game currently going on and the games atmosphere literally comes into the whole room.

We had a slight issue where the smoke alarm started going off in the middle of the night, we phoned front desk to let them know, the engineer came up and managed to stop the alarm, however the alarm set off again, after calling front desk we were moved into another room for the night.

Nice and clean and comfortable place to stay.
