Even though we were told that this is a 3 stars hotel, it is far from it! I will rate it 4 stars! The rooms were posh, clean and big. We had a nice view and the location is close to attractions! It offered us so much comfort after a long hard night of trying to solve our flight cancellation issues.

Save your money ....... Stay at another Hotel.
I have stayed here twice. Both time I was on the Second City Package. The first time was in Febuary 04 and I loved it. The second time I stayed thier was on August 31 for one night on he Second City Package. When I first got thier everything was fine. The Resturant was great. When we got up we realize that the pillows were feather. So we call House Keeping and they baught up more feather pillows. It 12 a.m. so we phone again they finnaly got it right. Its 12:30 when we finnaly got to sleep. My son realize after reading a CAA book that you get a free contnetal breakfest so we phone room service they could have been any ruder. Check-out was o.k. Check-in was very slow. The room wasnt that clean. I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN. They have horrible coustomer service. I got a 60 buxs meal at the Sheraton Centre caz the A/C wasnt the best. If you want the best hotel in Toronto stay at the HOLIDAY INN ON KING.
Very Nice Hotel for staying downtown. Quick easy checkin, very quick and helpful bellmen. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. Hotel bar is very nice with great view of the playing field at Skydome. Don't get a room facing the RR tracks. Its a little noisy and the view is very unappealing. Overall a good experience and a nice hotel.
This was a very nice hotel. Our room was wonderful overlooking centerfield with a big sliding window. The room was big. A king bed then up the stairs to a "parlor" with a pull out sofa and 2 arm chairs. Room service was okay. We stayed the weekend for 2 Red Sox games. Will diffenately go back.
Wouldn't expect anything less
Decided to rent a room for the weekend and watch a baseball game with my girlfriend. It was a beautiful experience, I would recommend this to anyone even if they're not a baseball fan. I've watched a game from everywhere from behind the plate to the 500 level, and definitely the hotel was the best. You can open the top half of the glass window and overlook the whole stadium. And when a Blue Jay player hits a homerun fireworks explode in your face! We opened the couch bed right in front of the window and watched the whole game lying down.
The room was clean, modern, no problems. Had 2 TV's one in front of the bed and one up the mini stairs in front of the couch of the upper level.
Customer service was good. I forgot my car stereo faceplate at the front desk as I checked in. I received a call as soon as I stepped through the door of my hotel room that I left it there. Very Nice.
Overall, great experience
THe best hotel in the world. I got a room over looking the SkyDome (they were seting up for the AUTO SHOW). It was soo kool. The staff were excellent. Eat at the bristo for breakfest. YUM. The staff went out of there way to make my stay much better. Had everything you need.
If you stay in toronto stay here. Woukd recomened it.
Stay somewhere else
rooms were ok, but dated room service was rude and left dirty plates in hallway for days! front staff was oblivious no concierge stay elsewhere
Save your money, stay somewhere else
This hotel is an interesting novelty if you're a baseball fan and the Blue Jays are playing while you are staying there.
If not, then this is one of the poorest hotel values I've ever seen.
Cinder-block hallways and dingy decor manage to offer the quality of an unrenovated Howard Johnson's for the price of a world class luxury property. Although the hotel staff are very nice and service is good, the property is very overpriced for what is offered. Do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere.
I would have to say that this was the finest hotel we stayed at during our recent trip to Ontario. The rooms were quite large and the bed was very comfortable. We arrived to late to catch a whole ball game so we sat in the lounge and watched the 7th inning on. It was great. It costs alot more to have a room overlooking the field. Unless yu have a large family, it's much cheaper to purchase tickets and watch the game from the stands. The only bad part of our stay was the parking. It's very expensive and you have to be out by 1:00pm or you pay for another day.
Of course they don't tell you that until you try leave the parkade. All in all it was a very nice hotel.
Friendly service, good parking, great rooms, wonderful experience
I just returned from Toronto spending the weekend at the Skydome. Enjoyed everything about the hotel, but enjoyed the friendly service the most. Whatever we asked for, was provided. The stadium was an adventure also, and wish we would have been there for the game. An overall great experience. Thank you Skydome!
Spring for the field view room
For those of you who are sports fans the Skydome is a blast. My family including a 12 year old and a 6 year old stayed in one of field view rooms and it was the best part of the stay in Toronto. Our first day in Toronto, the field was being changed from football to baseball and we were fascinated by the activity going on as we watched from our window. A couple of evenings later,we were at our window during batting practice and the players were tossing balls up through the hotel room windows(or at least trying to). When we got home that night after being a tourist in TO, the game was still going on in extra innings. We were all disappointed when the game finally ended.
The rest of the hotel is just so-so, but the experience of the field view room was one of the highlights of our trip. How many other hotel windows do you spend significant time just staring out?

Finally after 5 months of wait.
I am at Toronto Airport, arrival hall, waiting impatiently for V to reach. His flight was delayed and was stuck at Hong Kong Airport for about 13 hours :(
I was super excited and skipped lunch, because we were going to have a good meal to celebrate our reunion.
So finally I saw him coming out …
... was excited about it. It's dirty, full of traffic, full of people, full of awful smelling fumes, fumes from traffic and fumes from sewers. Another place where I guess if you stay in luxury you don't see or hear the things that you do when you stay in the lower end places. I know it's a city and what I have described is just that a city. I thought London was hectic and madness but New York takes it to a whole new level. We got off our coach and really had no idea where we were ...
As we sat here laughing we were also watching this mighty city rotate below us and on several occasions I had my cameras pointing out the window.
As this mad evening went on we sat up here drinking and watched a magical sunset take place over the city. Of course with the sun as beautiful as it was everyone up here was pushing their way to this side of the tower simply to get the best shots.
Finally after a massive meal and quite a few drinks we decided ...
... that certainly explains why it is quite expensive to buy!
We were guided by a lady who had worked at the centre for 20 years. She was passionate and very knowledgeable and after an introduction that included the history of the syrup we went outside and followed a trail where various stations had been set up to show the evolution of syrup production from the indigenous people thru to the first settlers and to recent times. ...

Undeterred we head in the general direction of where we think the pub is..
I put Tom in my pocket.. mistake two for this latest catastrophy... how was I to know that as it was still switched on anything could reprogramme it...
