“Great for long stays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Although my day was brief, I could see the real benefit of staying here if you needed to be in a hotel for even a few days.

Rooms:
The rooms are very spacious and well appointed. They are mostly modernized and do not leave much lacking. The kitchen is equipped with everything down to the silverware. A full sized fridge and even cook top burners make it perfect for a traveling executive or anyone who wants to prepare their own healthy meals.
Room was quiet, did not hear any noise in the hallway.

Hotel Property:
Hotel is quite small, but it does have a small food shop at the front for preparing some (not as healthy as I would have hoped) food in your suite. There is no amenities in the shop, so do not forget your razors or shave cream!

Food:
Breakfast buffet is included with room and decent. Mix of comfort and healthy food. Lounge was a good size.

Location:
Great location in the entertainment district. Very close to St. Andrews Station and walking distance to many of Toronto's sights!

Customer service:
The front desk was able to recommend a great Italian restaurant (Kit Kat) just steps from the hotel. They stored our bags, treated us with respect, and even granted us a very late check out due to our unique request.

Overall- Good value for the money due to location and suites having such space/kitchenette.
Would stay again when needing this type of hotel.

We stayed for one night...in town for soccer and baseball games. The rooms are extremely comfortable...beds are amazing, and rooms very well designed. We stayed up high on 20th floor and there was no noise at all. Staff are very friendly and helpul. Morning breakfast (included in price) is very good with lots of choice. Pool is also very nice. We would definitely stay here again. Location is great for downtown activitied, restaurants, Union Station...the list goes on.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Our family of 6 stayed at the Residence Inn on the Thursday and Friday of Easter weekend. Everything was just what we were looking for. Check in was swift and they gladly accommodated our request for connecting rooms.

The room next to us decided to have a party with 8 men on the Thursday night and by 9:30pm we we done with it. Andre from the front desk called them once, which did nothing, and then came up a few minutes later and moved them elsewhere in the hotel. We appreciated the quick, no hassle management of our complaint.

The breakfast buffet was great and had enough selection to keep everyone happy. The pool is a lovely temperature and we all enjoyed swimming.

This hotel is a great choice for families traveling if you can get connecting rooms.

The location is good. The rooms are spacious & clean. The Marriott team seems happy to assist. I'm not sure why these properties try the breakfast scenario - less would be more & it makes the lobby smell like a Waffle House.

Stayed in Marriott Residence Inn for 9 days over Easter with family and it proved to be an excellent choice. Four people including a child so we initially looked at others places for either 2 seperate hotel rooms or a private apartment rental ( of which there seems to be lot in Toronto ) but we plumped for the Marriott "all Suite" set up in the end and we were definitely not disappointed. On the top floor ( 22nd ) with nice views of the city from the sitting room / kitchen area and also an impressive view of the CN tower from the main bedroom. The ladies commented favourably on the fact that the bathroom products were of the Paul Mitchell brand.

Staff includng front desk, parking Valet, housekeeping and breakfast area were some of the most courteous and helpful ever encountered in a hotel.

Hotel itself is in an excellent location in what is known as the "Entertainment District" and is within walking distance to all the major to-do's in Downtown i.e. CN Tower, Rogers Centre, Air Canada Centre, Eaton Centre, Union Station, Lawrence market, Yonge Street etc

Substantial breakfast on offer each morning o set you up for the day and twice weely there are also themed food evenings between 6pm and 7.30pm. These are complimentary and a really nice touch.

Decent sized indoor heated pool was a bonus and we made good use of it.

No major negatives to report on but if we were to be really picky, and as others have already highlighted, the Valet parking at $40 per day is expensive but in fairness it was well flagged in advance.

If we ever make it back to Toronto then the Marriott Residence Innwill be our first port of call

Room Tip: Higher floors more desirable

I have stayed in this hotel many times and enjoyed my stay. It's always friendly, very clean and tidy and has a good location in the entertainment district in the Downtown area of Toronto. I fully recommend it.

A wonderful place to stay. Great rooms that are spacious and clean. A staff that is helpful and friendly. It was easy to get around the city and there were plenty of choices for eating and shopping nearby. Even the free Internet worked well. The free breakfast was good quality. I would stay here again.
