“Very Nice Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I enjoyed my stay here. The hotel was nice and clean, and the staff very friendly.
Very nice to have to kitchen space, and the sitting area. The pool area was nice and clean, but the hot tub was not very warm and the pool itself was really cold.
I had read several reviews and there was lots of good feedback on breakfast, but I found it pretty standard. Very similar to how most hotels have breakfast now nothing special in my opinion.
valet parking is way to much money.

I found this hotel to be a very nice clean hotel but found their pricing way too high for what it was and found everyone standing waiting on a tip if they done something for you. There is no near by parking so you have to pay the $40 + tax + tip for their valet parking per day. Over all, bad location for weekend visit as your in the heart of the financial district, the hotel is clean but quite pricey and have a few dollars spare for tips.

Take my advice,,, Marriott is always a safe bet.
If you can get a room for around 150-200$
It's totally worth it. Big Room, Big Bed, Big Kitchen, Big Bathroom Great rotating TV between your living room and bed. You feel very comfortable and cosy at this place.
They offer free fast Wi-Fi as well.
The Gym could be bigger and and more modern but it does the job.
The location of this hotel is great, right in the middle of the entertainment district.

Good Value overall.

Rooms were spacious and clean. Great downtown location in entertainment distinct. Free breakfast which was fresh and really tasty. The room was not expensive which made the stay great. The hotel is quiet during the night which I like. This place is ideal for families and people who like that warm type of atmosphere. There is also very cheap parking behind the hotel in a parking garbage.

Room Tip: park behind the building

For staying right downtown, close to everything you could possibly want to be close too, the Marriot Residences are pretty awesome. Buffet breakfast included in the price makes it an even better deal. The rooms were very, very clean and their was a small kitchen so you can make your own meals if needed.
They also provided a crib for us upon request.
I will be booking my family to stay here again the next time we are staying in the city!
I almost forgot the best part!!! They offered a great discount to us because we have CAA!!! Be sure to mention it when booking your stay.

Overall the hotel is very good. The valet area could use some work. One tiny desk on the street + only one valet on duty + a very steep $40 price tag = long wait to drop off or pick up your car and not good value for price paid. The reception staff are very good. Asked for a quiet room, they made sure it was a quiet room, even explained where it was and why it was quiet. The room is well appointed, well laid out and comfortable. The room was also VERY clean! And of course, there's the complimentary popcorn (but please take the salt packages out of the salt shaker - without tiny fingers you cannot get at them). The only issue I had was the thermostat did not work at all - was stuck at mid-60's all night, with the vent blowing directly at the pillows (also known as "my face"). By the time I checked in, and even noticed, it was too late to consider having it fixed or changing rooms. Thankfully there was an extra blanket in the cupboard. Probably the coldest night of sleep I've had at a hotel, ever. Breakfast in the morning is also very good. The eggs were too runny for my liking (as in not cooked thoroughly), but I guess some people like them that way. All other items were plentiful and hot. Staff did a very good job keeping the buffet stocked and tidy, and making sure tables were cleaned. Check out was easy, and staff did apologize for the thermostat issue (I think they saw my skin was still blue). Overall this is a very good option for downtown stays. The price is very reasonable (with the exception of valet pricing), the staff are attentive, and the overall cleanliness is excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor overlooking the CBC building on Windsor St.

In town on business for a week with meetings all over the downtown area of Toronto. This hotel was my first stop and I stayed there for two nights. I really enjoyed that there was a full kitchen and the rooms were very spacious. Friendly hotel staff and the breakfast was good as well.
