I stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in the Rogers Centre from April 30 through May 3 in connection with three ballgames between the Blue Jays and the Red Sox. The Renaissance is a 7 minute walk from the hotel to the ballpark.
My room, which I purchased at a discount from Priceline, was very large, well stocked with toiletries and clean. Aside from the muffled roar of GO Trains hustling down the rails, there was no noise at all. I ate breakfast and lunch at the hotel at a restaurant that overlooked the ballpark. On one occasion, I sat at a table next to the young Japanese shortstop on the Blue Jays team. For what it's worth, he got one of the two hits against the Red Sox ace, Buchholz. Breakfast and lunch were just fine.
The hotel is about two miles from Billy Bishop Airport, where I flew on Porter Airlines. Unfortunately, Porter cancelled my 9 AM flight back home, which I believe was a deliberate decision by Porter to avoid flying a nearly empty plane. Shame on them! I'll take my business elsewhere.
The Renaissance, obviously, had nothing to do with the flight cancellation. I plan to use this hotel in the future.
