Won this hotel on priceline, stayed just one night when we were downtown for a show. Rooms were very nice, friends actually ended up with a stadium room view, there was not a ball game that night but it was still pretty cool to look out into it and be able to open the window. We didn't eat there at all, but it is a short walk to all downtown. Lobby was nice and had complimentary wifi. I would stay again.

Stayed: May 2013, traveled as a couple

Pros:
Cool to have a room with a view of the ball park - even when there is no game, it is neat to see the inner workings of the stadium
Huge rooms
Great location
Friendly staff
Fun and lively bar downstairs

Cons:
Hotel is old and a bit worn out overall - room appointments, carpet, and linens average
My TV was fuzzy and unwatchable
Can be a long haul to and from the elevator - it's like walking around a whole ball park!
I had a bizarre incident where a bellman came by my door at 12:30am saying he had a gift basket for me. He had the wrong room. I had the do no disturb sign on the door...not cool.

We were upgraded to a field-view king suite (room 160), which was a great treat. The room (main floor) featured 2 couches (one fold away for sleeping), a chair, a wet bar, TV and an incredible floor-to ceiling view of the ballpark. The windows open wide to allow all the sights, sounds and smells to fill the air.

Up the winding staircase (about 20 steps) was the master bedroom. King bed, TV, chair with ottoman and desk. Also, more great views of the stadium (windows can’t be opened). Odd, but there was no dresser anywhere in the room to store clothes, just a few slide out shelves in the TV stand. The master (and only) bathroom was upstairs. Plenty large, but the lighting for makeup was poor and the Jacuzzi tub/shower was quite awkward getting in and out of.

Overall, we loved the room for the view of the games that were played while we were there, but when the stadium was not in use (with the roof closed), you really feel isolated from the world. It was interesting to see all the preparation that goes into getting the field ready for the game. Just be sure to close the windows or the sounds and smells of leaf blowers will keep you awake.

Friendly and attentive service from all the staff. Nice fitness facility and pool, too.

Coupled with a great location, this hotel earns high marks for its uniqueness.

Room Tip: If there's a game, get a stadium view. Otherwise, you may want to face the city.

This hotel is in the middle of everything! It is in Rogers Centre and right next to the CN Tower and Ripley's Aquarium. The Hockey Hall of fame, Malls, and movie theaters are in walking distance. It is also about 30 minutes away from Toronto Pearson Intl airport (YYZ). Everyone complains about the railroad tracks right next to the hotel but really it is not a big deal. The staff was extremely helpful and the room was very clean. I truly enjoyed my experience here... I will Definetly come back.

Right at the Rogers Centre, can't beat the location. Rooms are excellent, the staff very helpful at a busy location. The only reason I am knocking them a star rating is because I tried to call the hotel twice to confirm our room and see if we could get a cot. I let it ring over 30 times both times and noone answered the phone. There are plenty of staff here. One would think if I'm trying to pay them money that they should answer the phone?? Id stay here again

Unlike most guests during the days of a Blue Jays game, I was not there for the baseball - but staying in a hotel adjoining a sports stadium is always something of a novelty. Prime spots in the bar overlooking the field after our meetings were a bonus. Overall the hotel is decent. The common spaces in particular were attractive, convenient and well-designed. My room was OK, although an odd shape, which is probably the consequence of a hotel wrapped round a stadium. Little effort had been made to maximise the strange shape, and the large windows looked out over a wall with a track which turned out to be for the stadium's retractable roof. The room was comfortable but with a terrible desk/chair combination that made it almost impossible to use the desk to work at. Very good, central location.

Best seat in the dome to watch a Jays game. The view of the playing field is spectator. From our room both bullpens we're visible. You could even see the jumbotron. The smell of popcorn and hotdogs filled our room.
