In Group D, The real DARK HORSE of the tournament has emerged and they are Costa Rica who became first in their group by beating teams such as Uruguay and Italy. Uruguay got the second spot courtesy of some astonishing performances by Suarez but he bowed out after biting an Italian defender, sending Italy and England home on the way. This was a group full of drama.

Once we were all loaded in the cab we started wondering. Did we lock the door? After fretting about that for a bit we got ahold of the office who went and checked. Of course it was locked. We arrived at the airport and got in line. Although we weighed our luggage 500 time there is always the worry that we are overweight. But not to worry, we got the nicest air canada lady ever. She really worked to get us the best deal and got us all set up. Through security and after a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville Hotel
In life you often get what you pay for. Yes I booked a discounted rate and thought I was lucky to get a hotel room for so cheap. But this hotel was just plain bad. Dirty Dirty Dirty. The room looks like movie set from the 70's. Crumbs beside the bed and on the carpet made me go and buy slippers to wear for the rest of the time I spent in the room. The washroom was dirty and badly in need of repair very moldy and the paint was peeling. There was mold on the vents. The restaurant was nothing special and expensive. Overall it was dark and drab. The only good thing about it is that it is close for shopping and better places to eat.
Bad to worst!
For about a year I had to stay at the Marriott Bloor hotel for business. Absolute great location but the building is not in the best condition. Around October of last year I just noticed that it got a lot worst. I think they are renovating and just letting the place go down in the dumps. For most of my year the place seemed worn out but clean now it's just terrible. The sheets, carpets, and bathrooms are just dirty! dirty! dirty! Stay at the Sutton Place or Hyatt for a few dollars more. Trust me those few dollars go a long way!
Not to stay list
I had a credit card guarenteed reservation at this Marriott. When I arrived to the hotel, I was told that they have my reservation but they don't have a room for me. They broke the contract! I was told that all the equivalent hotels in the whole downtown Toronto were sold-out. While I was in the Hotel Lobby, there were more than five individuals checked-in. They sent me to Ramada (a lower-category hotel owned by Marriott). Staff was unprofessional. I was told to keep my cab receipt so that I could get reimbursed the next day. I will avoid to stay in Marriott!!
Convienent location fits the bill
Priceline got me a room here for a steal. We (3 adults and an infant) had a nice room located on the 3rd floor. Yes, the lobby is tiny and there was no doorman, but the room was very adequate and very quiet. Even with a hotel provided crib, there was ample space in the room. The location is really great. There are plenty of resturants and tons of shopping with in walking distance and, as mentioned elsewhere, it is right over the Bloor & Younge subway stop. The underground parking garage actually belongs to the city, but that is not a problem and its elevators will take you right to the hotel lobby. I would gladly stay there again if I were going to Toronto.
Don't ever stay here. The hotel rooms make you want to vomit. They are just plain dirty. The walls have stains on them, the beds have stains, the towels are grey and stained and you are basically reminded of motels you used to stay in when you were on spring break in college.
I thougt I was at a Motel 6
Lobby was really nice, good location, but my God, having to walk 5-7 minutes through a maze from elevator to room 529 was really annoying.
The room was so dark and dreary and I thought I was back in 1983, I thougt when I turned the T.V. on I would be watching Miami Vice. This hotel really needs a lot of work. Now I know why they only showed the picture of the lobby in the Marriott Guide book. Paint was actually peeling from the roof in the bathroom, the bathtub was once white I guess and they did a paint job on it to make it creme colored, which was also peeling. Also a lot of moild in shower. All in all, it was gross.
We'll be back
My wife and I enjoyed our 18th Anniversary,getting away for a 3-day vacation to Toronto. Staying at the Marriott Toronto(Bloor Yorkville) provided us with a convenient location for our planned itinerary. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, "Matisse", the hotel restaurant was under renovation. But, with what we could see of the construction being done it looked like it's going to be an incredible addition for the hotel. And, if keeping in shape is something that you enjoy, the 3rd floor has an excellent health club with weights, treadmills, TV, and sauna. We will definitely tell our friends about this hotel. We'll be back.
All about location
We stayed at this hotel over Labor Day weekend in 2002. Great location -- close to some incredible shopping on Bloor Street -- as well as subways. Rooms are just adequate, and there was a fire alarm on our first night that forced us to walk down flights and flights of stairs, which made things interesting. Good housekeeping staff.

fantastic hotel, with a great location right inside the subway station, at yonge and bloor station.you can get to any spot in the city within minutes right from your hotel room.the moderate price is an added bonus
Marriott Bloor-Yorkville occupies some prime real estate - connection to the Hudson's Bay Center and right off Bloor St. near Yonge - steps from the upscale Bloor Street W. shopping strip and the trendy shops of downtown T.O.'s Yorkville district.
