The cool thing about the Renaissance is that it is actually located inside the Roger’s Centre. From the hotel bar and restaurant Arriba, you have a spectacular view on the stadium. I stayed here for business for 9 nights, during which we saw the Blue Jays play the NY Yankees and the LA Angels. They also have rooms that look out on the stadium, which is great for sports fans, but not if you like daylight.
The room I had was on the Club level (6) and was huge. The bed was ridiculously large – I used up maybe a fifth – and very comfortable. The furniture was fine, nothing spectacular. The room was clean enough, as was the bathroom. It’s a shame that in a room that big, the closet was so close to the bed that you had to squeeze past it when the door was open.
My biggest gripe about this hotel is that there was no Wi-Fi in the rooms. Big hotels still brag about having super fast wired internet. Who cares when there is no way to plug that into a Smartphone, tablet or Mac Air? If you wanted Wi-Fi, you had to sit in the lobby, and who wants to do email or Skype with family in the entrance hall? While the room was good, the restaurant served great food, and the staff was helpful and friendly, I am deducting a whole point for this antiquated practice. If small B&Bs can offer free Wi-Fi, so should the big players.
