    Nothing too special about this Marriott, but it is kept very clean and spot on service. Unfortunately they offer only the bare minimum in terms of amenities and the value is average considering it is right in downtown Toronto.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Toronto Downtown



    I stayed at the Courtyard as part of a vacation package I picked off of Priceline. I never expected the room to be so nice, considering the price I paid... The staff was courteous and the location was great for going out clubbing.

    Southern Hospitality found in Canada?


    This hotel is very nice with a great location within downtown Toronto.

    The staff was extremely courteous. Although I have stayed at hotel with a little more decor, my room was extremely spacious and well kept. I also used the workout facility (located on the ground floor), which had fairly new, fully functional equipment. I really enjoyed having the ability to walk around downtown Toronto and only being minutes from my hotel.

    Great location


    Got this hotel on Priceline at a great price. Check-in was quick and painless, and we ended up in a non-smoking king, just as we'd hoped.

    Valet parking was $20 CAN a night, which was only $15 US, pretty good for a big city. Self-park was only $5 CAN less, across the street.

    We're pretty sure valet parking is actually under the hotel. We never used the car between check-in and checkout, so valet worked well for us.

    The location is fantastic, right on Yonge St., just a block from the College subway station, and within easy walking distance of a multitude of dining and shopping options. The hotel was very easy to find coming in from the freeways to the west.

    The only complaints we had were that the pillows were quite flat, and the room-service dishes that were in the hallway when we checked in (and must have been from the night before, as room service hours hadn't started yet) were still there when we left to go to dinner the *following* night. We mentioned it to the front desk on our way out, and they were gone by the time we got back, but I certainly expected it would take less than two days to pick up dirty dishes!

    Other than that, our room was clean and comfortable, and that's pretty much what we were looking for. Would definitely stay there again.

    Clean, Comfortable & Unbeatable Location!


    BACKGROUND: - Like an earlier reviewer, I booked the Courtyard Toronto Downtown via I stayed there the weekend of Feb 20th for a total of 3 nights and was travelling alone.AIRPORT GROUND TRANSFER: - There are basically 3 ways to get to the Courtyard from Toronto's Pearson airport: 1) public transit, 2) Airport Express shuttle, and 3) taxi. - I chose the Airport Express and although it doesn't stop directly outside the hotel, it's only about a 5-min walk from the nearest stop (the Delta Chelsea Inn). For the shuttle's schedule and more info, go to www.********************.CHECK-IN/OUT: - I had no problems checking in or out of the hotel. Only thing is, the room I reserved was supposed to come with a King bed but instead I was given 2 Doubles. This isn't a big deal obviously, but it does make the room look so much bigger with only 1 person in it! Haha! Solo travellers take note!ROOM (2 DOUBLE BEDS): - The room was clean, comfortable and relatively spacious--this includes the bathroom! The wash area (i.e, sink, mirror, etc) is outside, so if you're sharing the room, one person can wash up while the other is showering and so on. There's also FREE high-speed Internet access if you bring your own laptop! Great for people who constantly need to stay connected! - My only gripe was the location of my room--it was next to the elevator landing, so families with noisy children drove me nuts as they waited there each morning. Therefore, make sure to ask for a room further away from the elevators if you're not a morning person or if you're planning to sleep in till at least 10 in the morning!!LOCATION: - Doesn't get any better than this! It's less than a 2-min walk to the subway (COLLEGE stop, Yonge-University-Spadina line), which is in the basement of the College Park shopping center. - Eaton Center, a major mall, is only 1 stop away. You can even walk there if the weather is nice! Bloor Street, which offers high-end fashion, lies on the same subway line and is about 5 stops up. - In addition to the on-site restaurants, there are plenty of fast food, small restaurants, and a food court surrounding the hotel. There are also several cafes/coffee joints in the immediate vincinity. For water, last minute toiletries, medicines, etc, there's a pharmacy next door that's open till midnight!CONCLUSION: For a reasonable price, you get a hotel that is very conveniently located, offers clean and comfortable rooms, and has lots of food and beverage places around! :)

    Perfect location, great value for money


    We stayed at this Couryard for a weekend in February 2004. The location is perfect, and the overall experience made you think you stayed at a "real" Marriott, certainly a lot better than the "average" Courtyard.

    Despite the size of the hotel check-in was quick and very friendly. The room was in perfect condition and very comfortable. Last but not least there is the free high-speed Internet connection! Great value for the reasonable rate we paid! Highly recommended.

    Great Location with Doritos Under Bed!


    We got a package deal thru (would reccomend) and had to pay extra for this hotel as it was actually located in Toronto as opposed to the others offered. The location is excellent with the College subway stop and trolleys just a short block away as well as a Dominion grocery, the ubiquitous Tim Horton's, other shopping and a few pubs a short jaunt down Yonge St. Room was large, but due to overbooking, we were right in front of the elevator and our windows faced an office building and looked on to the very busy and noisy Yonge St. If you are not planning to stay in the room very much (come on, you ARE in Toronto), this is the place. Nice entry, full changing area for small pool and hot tub. Again, location is the big draw with College Park and the Village at your door. Check out the Greek Isles restaurant around the corner on College for some stunningly delicious Greek food with truly great service. Cheers!

    A nice surprise!


    I got this hotel on Priceline and was somewhat disappointed because of my past Courtyard experiences. I was wrong. The Toronto property is quite nice and the rooms were as nice as some in much more expensive hotels. I liked the location, too, right on Yonge. The "gay village" is nearby if you're interested and the upscale Bloor area as well as Eaton Centre are quick walks away.

    Great Location!


    Excellent location. It is a marriott so it is standard and clean. The "Courtyard" name usually means lower quality, but this one is top.

    Extremely close to shopping and night clubs. The gay area, while not huge or flaunting, is very close to this as well - if that interest you.

    Excellent central choice


    I visit Toronto frequently, and this is my new favourite hotel. The location is perfect, on Yonge Street just a couple of short blocks north of Eaton Centre. My room was spacious, well-designed, and flawless. This had been an older building which was gutted down to the steel frame and entirely reconstructed, so for all intents and purposes, it's new. Also, it's less expensive than some competitors in its neighbourhood. The only glitch was a very long line to check out by one overworked clerk, but no place is perfect.

    Good hotel.


    We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott on Young twice during a 3-03 trip. Be ready for the parking if you drive in. Self parking is perfectly dreadful unless you are energetic and healthy enough to take a major hike up and down steep ramps in the unsecured garage next door. Suggest you opt for the valet parking for only $5CAN more. Parking is costly at $17 and 23 CAN. However, there is no alternative to the self parking except the valet. We arrived 4pm on a Sat and valet was full so if you cannot do the hiking in the garage, call ahead and reserve valet parking. Enter hotel from the "back" or East side - driving past hotel from Young St you cannot see any way to enter. Once you get over finding the entrance and parking, the rest is easy and wonderful. What a lovely Courtyard. Pool is good but not accessible from North Tower except by going through lobby. Exercise room is nice. Lobby is pretty. Service was great. Front desk staff very efficient and nice. Location on Yonge St is good, but on the edge of the less desirable area. Yonge St is an interesting stroll for about 10 blocks in both directions. McDonald's across st. Cabs easy to get. Cab about $5-6 to downtown. Place looked full. I would stay there again.

    I need to wrap this up though, dinner is being served and more orientation is on the schedule after that! Tomorrow morning we're taken through a few more topics, then final packing and we take off to London tomorrow evening!

    Toronto is the largest city in Canada and 40% of the population are not native born, this means it has a really multicultural feel with a China town, little Italy, little India etc. It was great to stay with Ali and Pat as they could give us the local knowledge and show us all the bars and the many many micrbreweries!
