“Slightly dated but nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We stayed for three nights, and the staff and facilities were more than adequate (but less than outstanding), and the hotel is conveniently located for access to the Four Seasons Center for the Performing Arts, and a block from the subway, across Bay St. from City Hall. The room was spacious, though somewhat dated, but it was a quite pleasant stay.

Stayed here for just one night on a shopping trip. It was conviently located close to the Eaton's center which was literally a 5 min walk away. The rooms are starting to look a little out dated (819) Would have been nice to have one mirror outside the bathroom, as every other hotel does, hard for 2 people to get ready in the morning with out one.
The rooms were very clean, beds were very comfortable. The wifi cost $15 for in room. The wifi was free in the lobby.
Dinner was great at the hotel restaurant and our server was very professional.
Prices were a little expensive, $20 per meal aprox.
For breakfast we ordered room service which came in a timely fasion. , it was also expensive $16-20 for a full meal.
Hot cereal $10
cereal $7
Toast $5
The meal was very good:)
We asked for extra milks to be brought up to our room for our coffees which came timely as well.
There is a coffee maker and free coffee & tea in room.
I the service and cleanilness rates it a 5, but the outdated decor, put it without free wifi in the room and no mirror put it down a notch for me.

It isn't my first choice when I go to Toronto, which is quite often, We stayed weekend of Feb 8/9 2013 and I chose this because of all the snow and the connection to the Eatons Centre.The hotel was lovely, the staff was pleasant and helpful and the room was clean and spacious. My problem was with the pillows, which were atrocious and the towels, which were dreadful. They were thin, old and scratchy. I had an uncomfortable sleep, and for this reason my first stay at a Marriot will be my last.

I've stayed in many hotels in downtown Toronto, and the Marriott Eaton Centre is now my favourite.

Beautiful, spacious lobby. Efficient, helpful, knowledgeable and courteous check-in. Large, spotless and comfortable room. Request a corner room in a higher floor (ending in 02)!

Fantastic location adjacent to the Eaton Centre, Yonge Dundas Square, City Hall, and Chinatown. Walking distance to most everything else in downtown Toronto, and only steps to the subway.

Stay here when we are downtown TO for business. Note to people in Scooters and wheelchairs the Marriott is connected to the Eaton Centre, however it is not accessible (there is about 10 steps that stop you. It is a pity, We were there on Thursday & Friday Feb 7 & 8 ( @TOsnow) The Marriott have an accessible door which is on the south side which is maybe a 100 yards to the Eaton Centre . The problem for all of Friday was that this walkway was not plowed and we had to take the long route to get to eat at Mr GreenJeans. Almost 25 minutes to figure it all out coming and going.

Room Tip: The accessible rooms only have King Beds

I stayed one night 26th JAN 13. Service was good (specially Austin from Concierge who helped on several occasions on suggestions on car rental). Bar was average and needed a bit more animation but drinks were good and cozy ambiance with the chimney.

Room size is good, comfortable bed and clean throughout. Equipped with all amenities you may need.

Breakfast was good. Buffet style with a correct variety.

With -18C temperatures, the best thing about this hotel was the ability to get to the shopping centre and the underground walkways without having to wear a coat.

Rooms were bright and spacious. Service at front desk and concierge were very friendly and efficient with concierge providing me with local bus routes and timetables for a visit to Niagara Falls.

The central location of the hotel makes it ideal for venturing out and exploring this city with CN tower being some 20 minutes by foot and Harbour Front just a bit more. Good location for shopping (Eaton Centre) as well as the financial district.

My only niggle was the noise from water pipes of adjoining rooms. Every time someone took a shower or flushed the toilet it woke me up which was annoying as I was trying to recover from lost sleep at different times of the day.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Trinity Square are away from the noise and hustle of the street.
