My poor Laetisha. I think she is wondering why every time we have to go to a new city we have to leave so early! Not that she complains mind you. She is a dream travelling companion, but one who is also 15, and unlike her Aunty, is accustomed to sleeping more!
We were up just after 5am to head to Newark for our international flight to …
... was very me! Lots of art, cool thrift shops, music being played through every inch of every street, SO much food! It was awesome, it reminded me very much of Camden. That evening a pub crawl had been arranged by the hostel, which I wasn't sure on, but after a few beers I decided to go. The first pub was wicked, there was some live bands which is always fun. So to cut the story short, we went to more bars, got very drunk. Later on, I decided to walk home, I knew how to get back to ...
... old-school neighborhoods with delightfully different homes, oozing character.
Back on the mainland, our hotel offers a great central location to stroll through the Skywalk over to CN Tower, tallest man-made structure in North America (in the world when built). Across from the tower is the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays ...
... where you can cycle along the Gardiner/DVP to Bloor St and back down for a 25km run. The 50km run continues up to York Mills and the DVP. While the 75km run loops back up from Bloor St again to York Mills and finally back down to the CNE grounds.
Today is Canada's birthday and everywhere you look you can see the flags hanging, in the windows of the houses, little flags on the cars, the people are wearing shirts with red maple leafs and patriotic prints... Even though I do have exactly such a T-shirt (how could I not??) I am not wearing it because I do not like to be 'trendy'... That would be simply 'too mainstream'! I"m considering to wear my Germany-Shirt though, you know, to be really REBELLIOUS and all like: Ha, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel
My girlfriend and I stayed here last January for three nights. We paid $539 total for round trip airline tickets from NYC, three nights, and fees and taxes. The cost for the room must have been less than $50.00 a night. This was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. It is ideally located in downtown Toronto within walking distance to most places of interest. The hotel is connected to a really nice mall. You never even have to walk outside to get there! The lobby was decorated very nicely and was quite large. The staff was very courteous. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The rooms were very spacious, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. On the top floor they have a nice pool (a little on the small side), a fitness center, and a nice hot tub. You can get a great view of the city from up there. The room service was great as well. I accidentally knocked over my phone and it was off the hook for more than 10 seconds. Within a minute or two, security was knocking at my door to make sure everything was OK. You can be sure that you will be very safe at this hotel. I highly recommend it and I can see why almost every reviewer gave it 5 yellow circles.
Great, relaxing stay!
Having never been to Toronto, it was very difficult in choosing from the plethora of choices.
Definately made a wise decision in choosing the Eaton Centre.
The location is prime for shopping, and you are close to pretty much everything. Taxis are waiting for you at all hours right outside the hotel doors if you wish not to get lost in the city.
Great place to dine is right across the street at the Pickadelli restaurant. DELICIOUS! The pool is small but relaxing. You are about 4 minutes away from the CN Tower via Taxi (RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE SKY DOME), and also about 4 minutes in Taxi to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Room was very reasonably priced, and staff is more than helpful. For sight seeing, or looking to do anything fun, make sure to ask the attendant at the activities desk that is quick to offer anything you are looking for! Great experience that was topped off by the Red Sox putting a hurting on the Blue Jays!
Marriott Eaton Centre is The Best
The hotel is centrally located to just about everything including the subway stations. (Just a short walk from the hotel) The hotel ltself is very nice!!! The rooms are very nicely decorated and the duvet covered beds are sooo comfortable. The staff are both friendly and helpful. The room service pizza was terriffic too. Ordered around 2:00am...no problem. This hotel is awsome. The package they offered for the Stones Concert on July 30, 2003 was Fantastic., and it was the best deal out there which was unbelievable considering the standard of this hotel.
Way to support Toronto!!!!
Best hotel experience I have ever had!!!
The hotel was awesome!!!! The location was great. I really loved the old church and courtyard. Non stop shopping without ever going too far.
I was there for 10 days and never had to move my car, but got to see plenty!!!!! The staff is the best. Their beds are the most comfortable I have seen in a hotel. I am ready to go back. Great breakfast buffet.
Not one single complaint.
Stayed for 9 nights from 24 June 2003 to 3 July 2003. After a long flight it was nice to be greeted by such a friendly staff. Check in was quick and easy, the room was spacious and had everything you could need for during the stay. Comfortable bed, large tv which could be used for internet or playstation, sofa, iron and good sized bathroom. During a very hot week the air conditioning kept the room just perfect.
Housekeeping staff did an excellent job and again were very friendly and helpful. Checkout again was quick and simple. It has an excellent location beside the Eaton Centre for shopping, subway and the PATH. My only minor quibble was the lighting in the room which was provided by lamps and meaning it was slightly dark. That said it will be my hotel of choice on my next visit to Toronto.
Excellent overall stay!!
Excellent service and atmosphere are two key areas that I found exemplary at the Toronto Marriott Eaton's Centre. The front desk was very efficient and courteous. The bell staff were efficient, knowledgeable and extremely welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to any visitor to Toronto. The location, rates, and overall appearance of the hotel are incredible. Thanks for a wonderful night.
Very Nice People
Stayed here for a 2 day weekend 3-28-03. Found everyone to be very cordial and attentive. This includes all of the staff from the manager to the waiters and waitresses. Rooms are sparkling clean and the bedding very comfortable. Duvets are used which always add that extra plushness making the stay a liile more comfortable. Breakfast buffet while somewhat standard has some extras making it very tasty. Only one disappointment and that was with the pool which is only about 3 ft deep and rather small. On the plus side, the water was warm.Also here is a whirlpool with water at about 100 degrees. arather relaxing area on the 18th floor. We wold recommend this hotel for a nice quiet stay.
Great Family Hotel !!!
We took the mother-in-law and the kids...stayed in adjoining rooms with a sofa bed. So much room and great PIZZA from room service after midnight !! Great buffet in atrium restaurant, so close to everything !! Wonderful pool. Making plans for return trip !!! May 2002
We stayed here in Oct 02 for 4 nights, with our 2 children.
Brilliant location, right next to the Eaton Centre, which had a great selection of shops and food places.
The hotels buffet breakfast is a must, great value for money, and the children loved it....
The room was clean, and the staff very friendly.
When we come to Toronto again, this will definately be our choice of hotel...
Comfortable and Welcoming
Now when we visit Toronto we will always stay here. At last we have found a hotel where the comfort of the guest is primary. Friendly staff, immacalate rooms and close proximity to the Eaton Centre make this hotel a must.
