“No place for allergies...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2010

I booked into this hotel because of all the great reviews. However, I specifically noted in my booking that I was allergic to scents, and they told me when I booked in that the room was scent free. I guess whoever had checked it must have had a cold, because the room reeked of Febreze, or some similar spray-on chemical scent. They tried to vacuum the room to clean the scent up, but it didn't work....I managed two hours of sleep curled up like a pretzel in the back seat of my car. The only reason I didn't pack up and leave is that my daughter needed to get some rest. I will never stay here again.

After spending a vacation in Maine, we drove back to Michigan and needed to stop for the night near Toronto. The Residence Inn in Whitby was located right off the highway and proved to be a perfect stopover site for us. The hotel was very clean, the breakfast in the morning was nice, and the staff was professional and courteous. The only bad thing was that the ice maker in the refrigerator was noisy. I figured out how to turn it off after we were startled awake at midnight. It would have been nice to have instructions on how to turn off the ice maker. Otherwise, nothing bad to say at all.

I stayed at this hotel before and found it a very nice hotel, I stayed on December 11th, and encountered some of the rudest people I have ever met. There were kids playing in the hall with hockey sticks and when the manager came and asked them to stop the parents got mad at him and started arguing with him. I felt very sorry for him as he was just doing his job. On Saturday morning I saw how they acted in the breakfast area and was again surprised, they were like animals and the staff were trying there best to put up with it but you could tell that they were tired of it.

I must commend everyone at the hotel for trying their best in dealing with these parents and the future adults that we are going to have to live with. Maybe they should stop having teams stay, or maybe the parents should start actually taking responsibility for their kids. But great job staff of the Marriott.

Great rooms! Spacious and plenty of room for work and to relax. The hot buffett breakfast and evening reception are amazing added perks. These factors mixed with the friendly management and staff is what will keep me coming back. Everyone is very approachable and welcoming. Keep up the good work Whitby! It's always a pleasure!

The room that I stayed in was clean and super large. Although the bed was comfortable, I was able to hear the train all through the night and the neon blue alarm clock display kept on surprising me when I woke up at night (it's so bright). They are stingy on the conditioner. I only got conditioner one out of the four days I stayed there. The breakfast and the cookies at the front counter was the best part.
