“Fantastic hotel hidden away in the heart of the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This hotel is perfect if you have business in downtown Toronto. It was a 10 minute walk from where I needed to be for work and is super close to a Starbucks, Quiznos and Quesada Mexican Grill!

Parking is a bit expensive and Valet only ($40 CAD a night + tax), so if you don't have to drive during your stay, don't.

The included breakfast is what you would expect from a Residence Inn. If you are a frequent traveler it is nothing special, but if you don't get out much, it will be quite a nice surprise.

All in all, it is perfect for business travel. It gives you that "homey" feeling at a decent value. And the best part, to reiterate, you can walk just about everywhere you would need to downtown... and if something is too far, cabs are all around.

Room Tip: I can't imagine there are any "bad" rooms in this hotel. It is a Residence Inn, after...

10 day stay for work. The room was great. Everything you need for a comfortable extended stay. The staff is super friendly. Only thing not making it a 5 is preponderance of strange smells on my floor (21). Probably someone cooking something ...all in all good value, comfy, friendly

We spent three nights at the Residence Inn this October. My husband, myself and our three kids.
We had a good suite with a kitchenette, two bedrooms and a sofabed (for my youngest son)
I have to say, the suite was large and comfortable...until we had to pull out the sofabed. For a room suitable up to six people, there were four chairs only, so my kids had to eat on their brother's bed...
The service was really average, the room was cleaned but we did found hair in our bedsheets.
The Breakfast buffet was ok, as it was complimentary (as the wifi) but little choice.
I will book my rooms at the Mariott next time in Toronto, less money, for a much better value.

Room Tip: The sofa beds are EXTREMELY uncomfortable!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Residence. The location was great, within easy walking distance of transportation, restaurants and groceries. The room was gorgeous and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. There were perks like a complimentary breakfast, newspaper, and more. I highly recommend the hotel if it is within your budget.

This was a pefect suite hotel. Roomy kichen area with full size fridge, microwave and two burners. Nice sitting are with a small table and desk. There is a small bar in the lobby. Complimentary breakfast has lots of choice, eggs, bacon/sausage, english muffin sandwiches, waffles,cereal, yogurtand fruit.

A nice surprise was the two free social evenings with a complimnetary buffet from nearby restaurants. Bed was super comfy!!! and sheets divine.

It was an easy work to the Toronto ConventionCentre, CBC and Roger Stadium. Bit of a walk to the subway but not bad- I got off at St.Andrews and walked over on King St., and then down to Wellington. Lots of places to eat on King St, plus a Shopper's Drug and LCBO. and KIng St is the theatre district.
Great choice -would definitely stay again
