5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Last minute hotel change and we couldn't be more please with our choice. During our four night stay we couldn't be more please with the staff, facility and breakfast. We will certainly stay here again. Very modern and new furnishings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the city.

We visited the Courtyard Marriott with a group of 8 families for my daughter's skating competition last weekend. I was very impressed when I walked in. Check in was quick and easy.
Our room was quite spacious for a 2 queen room. The renovations of the property are great! Modern rooms, comfy beds, and large showers.
Room had lots of drawers/cupboards for storage. Fridge only in our room... had thought the website said we would have a microwave as well.
This hotel has very wide hallways, which is great when you are with a group. Although our schedules did not provide for a lot of down time, we did comment that this would be a great place to gather as a group to enjoy some time together.
The pool area was very clean. Kids enjoyed swimming until the pool closed. Looks like they are planning a sauna, however it was not complete for our visit.
All in all, if I am visiting the Markham area again (probably next year for skating again!!) I would absolutely stay in this hotel.
My only downside was that breakfast was not included, and when we went to the marketplace for breakfast it was quite pricy. I would recommend eating offsite if staying for multiple days. Starbucks coffee is served in the marketplace which was a nice surprise.

We are very pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your kind words.

While we do not have microwaves in all of our Courtyard rooms, we have one available for use in our 24 hour market on the main level. We are also able to bring a microwave up to the room should you require one. On your next stay please speak to the Front Desk and they would be pleased to arrange one for you.

We look forward to your next stay with us and once again thank you for your positive review of our property!

The Bistro guy in the am..was very nice. The only thing..the gym had no internet on the machines, facing the wall..didn't feel like exercising..turn those machines around. def. would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: very nice place.

I remember this as the Chimo Hotel, then Holiday Inn and now Courtyard. TownPlace Suites is in the same building occupying the top 5 or 6 floors. Great job retrofitting the old tired and worn Holiday Inn --- I was a guest in the first two weeks of opening --- things worked well. It was amusing to watch 3 managers in the morning supervising the one guy working in the Cafe. Would have been more productive to get involved vs being critical and watching over a competent server. Rooms were clean, the bath room had been mostly re-done and everything was in good working order.

This hotel used to be a Holiday Inn. Prior to that it was Chimo.

As a Holiday Inn property it was tired beyond tired. Then along came Marriott…

A complete refurbishing inside and you must believe me when I tell you that apart from the shape of the hallways everything else is different.

A modern look throughout… Immaculately clean… and efficient to boot.

The hotel is divided into two different formats; one which occupies floors one through nine and the other starting at 10 upwards. Floor 10 and above is called TownePlace Suites... below is their Courtyard brand.

I stayed in the TownePlace version.

To start with, the location is excellent and convenient to Highway 404 which is also known as the Don Valley Parkway.

Parking: they have both indoor and covered although it's not heated. One difference from the previous management or ownership is that now they charge four dollars to park in the covered area. That will be a fee you'll be glad to pay when it's snowing outside!

Reception and greeting: excellent.

Free breakfast is available.

There is a bistro in the building, something that did not exist before.

There is a business centre located in the bistro area and of course it's all modern. There are separate computers in the hallway to print your boarding pass.

I recall having to do laundry in this building the last time I was here Holiday Inn) and in order to do so you had to actually walk beside the swimming pool (wet floors) to a dungeon like room at the back. That's all changed now with a separate room outside the pool area with modern washers and dryers.

It seems as if all the meeting rooms have been redone as well… with projection units hanging from the ceiling.

The rooms: The room I'm in is a king suite which also features a full kitchen. Unlike other formats out there, the room is smaller so you don't feel as if you're in an apartment but rather a small bachelor suite.

Because of the room size the TV is in a weird place… As far away from the couch as possible... So it would probably be a bit cumbersome to watch.

There are wall plugs, with a mini Power bar built into the wall over the desk. It should be noted that the desk would also be your dining room table… And the desk faces the wall so if you wanted to eat with someone you'd be sitting side-by-side. There is a little pull-out desk underneath the work desk which might serve as a small dining room table as well, however there's only one chair in the room anyway unless I suppose you move the table over to where the couch is... well, you get the idea. It is perfect though for one person for sure. I have no doubt though that they would bring another chair if you asked for one.

The kitchen is lined up against one wall so you'll find a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, sink, dishes, and a two burner electric stovetop.

The beds are brand-new so very comfortable.

The couch in this room appears to have a pullout section…

Lots of shelving and drawer space.

The bathroom: the king suite has a walk-in shower enclosed in glass. Modern in appearance it has a curved front to it which on a downside makes the bathroom a tad narrow.

In order to save room they use a sliding door to get in and out of the bathroom.

Amenities in the bathroom are typical of Marriott… thick and thirsty towels, portable hairdryer and again their typical soap. No bathrobes or slippers available here.

Internet: powerful signal, no issues.

I did walk into the two Queen bed room and it's missing the couch and it had a regular size bathtub instead of the shower stall.

They do have larger rooms as well…

Lighting: excellent.

The front desk staff actually took the trouble to call me when I took possession of the room to make sure it was happy and, during my stay called again to make sure everything was okay. A nice touch…

Thanks to Michelle and Islam. Both very professional and helpful people…

There is a spa in the hotel as well as a nicely furnished fitness center. A small market area to buy snacks…

For those who prefer do do some shopping, there is a (small) shopping centre (mall) about five minutes away from here on Steeles, as well as plenty of restaurants on Woodbine.

Would I stay here again?

Absolutely and with no hesitation.

Dear Harvey C,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a very detailed review on our brand new hotel. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay in the TownePlace Suites.

In regards to your in room setup, you did mention the removable desk which is an excellent feature in the room. It can serve as a work space or a place to eat if required. You are absolutely correct, if a guest required another chair in the room, a hotel staff member would be very pleased to bring an additional chair to the room. The Front Desk is available 24 hours a day and you may reach them by pressing "0" from the phone in your room.

The TownePlace Suites Lounge is also accessible 24/7 and has plenty of seating space available. Outside of breakfast areas, the lounge is very quiet and you would have the option of using that space for work or leisure. Furthermore, we do have coffee and Tea available 24 hours a day in the Lounge.

We certainly appreciate your kind comments on two of Front Desk Staff members: Michelle & Islam. We will ensure they are aware of your positive feedback.

Thank you again for your positive review and we look forward to your next stay at our hotel.

Best Regards,

Jimmy Budny

Spent a three day weekend here with the family. The hotel is newly finished in Courtyard guise (was previously a Holiday Inn). Conveniently located near shopping, restaurants and downtown Toronto. Staff was friendly, attentive and accommodating. We loved the convenient location and the clean, comfortable room. Highly recommended.
