“Excellent Place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a great location, good value for the money and the kitchennets are really nice to have.
The breakfast is the best hotel breakfast I have had. Although it says continental, it has eggs, pancakes..even had waffles one day. Overall great!! Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I stayed here mid-week for 2 nights and they coincided with the social evenings held in the lounge-dining room on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. These involve a free light meal and non-alcoholic beverages - an opportunity which was taken up by families and individuals who, like me, didn't want to go out to dinner. Very friendly and helpful reception, comfortable bed, excellent buffet breakfast included - with oatmeal porridge(!) - and located within easy walking distance of the CN Tower, Steamwhistle Brewery and Chinatown.

Room Tip: Rooms up high are quiet. Avoid ones near the lift maybe.

This hotel is not in the same category as some luxurious hotels on Front street, but offers a superb alternative at a better price. The rooms are well furnished including fully equipped kitchens, free wifi and the decent (but not exceptional) free breakfast is a great addition. The direction team offers social events as appreciation to customers 2 or 3 times a week (during my stay: cocktail with snacks and alcohol on Tuesday and complimentary pasta/salads dinner on Wednesday). It is only about 5 minutes walk to the convention centre, the Rogers center and the CN tower. Many restaurants around. I had a special fare with the convention I attended (159$/night) and felt I found the best possible deal for such great location. If back to Toronto, I would certainly book the Marriott Residence Inn again.

Room Tip: Rooms away from elevators are probably quieter (I heard bips coming from elevators while in the room...

I stayed at this hotel on business in mid November 2012. The hotel is located just west of the main "core" - it was about a 10-12 minute walk to Yonge Street and 25 or so to the Eaton Centre. The nearest subway station is St. Andrew, and that was about a 6-minute walk. Things like the CN Tower, Union Station, theatres, etc. were just around the corner.

The most positive thing was the breakfast: it was excellent and included a wide selection of fruit, eggs and a meat, juice, tea, coffee, cereal and the wait staff were attentive; also included newspapers.

I used the business centre once to print a document and no complaints whatsoever.

The pool was closed the entire time for apparent emergency repairs; probably nothing they could have foreseen, but a bit disappointing.

The room I was in faced Wellington and I had no problems whatsoever with noise. The room was clean and well-stocked (but would have been nice to have a kettle or hot chocolate packets to go along with the tea/coffee - not a big deal), TV had a wide selection of channels and the housekeeping service was attentive.

A couple of minor quibbles: no garbage can/receptacle in the bathroom area that I could find, the bathroom light/fan couldn't be turned on individually, so it was a bit loud, and the ventilation/cooling fan aimed toward the bed (and was quite strong) so I had to turn it off to avoid getting wind chill, but then of course the room heated up.

Overall, a good choice - I paid $270/night (government rate) which seems like a reasonable price for downtown Toronto, but I have no basis to compare this.

Stayed in many different apart-hotel in Toronto and many residence inn throughout N America. This is the best.

Great location for those on business, shopping, theatre, or nightlife;
The very best staff;
Clean comfortable room and facilities;
Great breakfast and they even rotate the protein - bacon, sausage, patties;
Free fast Internet.

This is clearly the best. For the Manager of this hotel, keep up the good work as I will be returning.

Room Tip: North facing room is best.

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
