Residence Inn by Marriott Toronto Downtown / Entertainment District
Travel Blogs from Toronto
A packed day today that started with a trip up the CN tower. Not a perfect day for it as there was lots of cloud around but you could see all of Toronto and the clouds gave a great view as they rolled in from the lake. Couldnt help comparing it with looking at a real life game of Sim City. Neither of us felt brave enough to step onto the glass …
Nice start to the day with breakfast ovelooking the hotel garden when a deer came out of the woods and was quite happy munching its breakfast as we looked on. It got really skittish though whenever a plane flew over which is kind of surprising considering where it lives. Airports are much of a muchness as are planes so not much to say about the …
We are loving the hot breakfast every morning! Max particularly loves the Canadian Turkey Bacon. Does anyone know if this is turkey or bacon? He doesn't seem to care either way. We might attempt the waffle maker tomorrow.
We visited the Toronto Eaton Centre, a large shopping mall with an atrium style ceiling, in downtown Toronto. In one …
Slept in a bit this morning. A mad rush to make sure we made it downstairs for breakfast (can't miss the free brekkie!).
Thought we would check out the CN Tower (the world’s tallest tower). The glass elevator ride up (with glass floor panels) was exhilarating for Brett, Max and Sienna. Not so much for Lee-Ann who faced the back wall …
Went for a walk to downtown Toronto after breakfast. Caught the Hippo Tour, a bus tour that takes you around the sights of Toronto and then travels down to Lake Ontario, where it turns into a boat (think it is called an amphibian vehicle). A very strange feeling when the bus drove into the Lake. We were waiting for it to start sinking and bubbles …

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn by Marriott Toronto Downtown / Entertainment District
We stayed 4 nights in June and it was time that they open a Residence-Inn in the downtown area! Everything was perferct, brand new, in good shape. Staff is #1,friendly from front desk to housekeeper. Everything to expect from Residence-inn. Location is perfect, on a quiet residential street, walking distance to everything. A 24hrs grocery is located one block south(Front St. and Blue Jays Way). Need a restaurant!?, one block north or south, you'll find 10 to 15! Pool and gym are small but convient. If you book a one-bedroom suite and a nice view is imporant to you, 50% of them don't have a view specailly on floor 18 and under. If you have one that's end by 01 or 14 you will be facing a building wall, if you have one that's end by 02 or 13 you'll have a view in the bedroom only. All regular studios have a nice view
Just returned from our 3 nite stay @the brand new Residence Inn. A comment upon arriving, we could not figure out where to park our car to check in. The valet was not standing outside & there was no sign to stop in front of the hotel, so we had to go around the block & park behind the building & send someone in to ask what to do. Actually, we had a car top carrier, so that does NOT fit in their parking garage. It worked out OK, we went to the end of the block & parked in the lot on the corner of Blue Jay's way & worked out a price w/the owner for in & out priveleges for Thurs thru Sun, $55. I think we did OK that way & then did not have to tip anyone or wait for our car everytime we needed it.
Meine letzten Erfahrungen mit Marriott Hotels waren immer ausgesprochen gut und mein Aufenthalt im Residence Inn war keine Ausnahme. Als allererstes wäre die Lage zu erwähnen, die einfach ausgezeichnet ist. Es gibt viele Restaurants in der Nähe und das Hotel liegt nur einen Häuserblock entfernt vom Skydome und CN Tower und einen weiteren Häuserblock von den Princess of Wales und Royal Alexander Theatern. Die Angestellten waren unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Zimmer sind alle neu und sehr schön eingerichtet. Ich war im 21sten Stock untergebracht und konnte keinerlei Lärm von der Straße hören. Das kontinentale Frühstück war ein netter Start in den Tag und ich habe gehört, dass es ähnliche Dinge unter der Woche am Abend gibt. Ich kann dieses Hotel von ganzem Herzen jedem der in Toronto übernachten möchte, weiterempfehlen.
Toller Aufenthalt, bin jedoch nicht erstaunt, denn die Einwohner Torontos sind einfach fantastische Menschen. Ich hatte hohe Erwartungen in dieses nagelneue Hotel in einem Stadtteil Torontos gesetzt und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Es war etwas teurer, als ich normalerweise von den Hotels in Toronto gewöhnt bin, aber es ist es auf jedem Fall wert, alleine schon wegen der Lage und dem Flachbildschirmfernseher auf dem Zimmer. Die Angestellten waren toll, das Zimmer wunderschön und das Frühstück vorzüglich. Ich würde dieses Hotel auf jedem Fall weiterempfehlen.
This hotel had only been open for just over a month when I visited it. I had gotten the listing from the Marriott web site and used a free night ticket to book. The hotel is 21 stories tall and located in an excellent location on Wellington Street in Downtown Toronto. I was greeted upon arriving by two very friendly check in attendants who did everything possible to help considering it was my first visit to Toronto. The king studio room on the 15th floor was very well appointed. The room included a great couch, flat screen TV and well designed bathroom. A complimentary social hour in the evening consisted of free mini hamburgers, salad and fries. There was some confusion as to whether drinks were included and they were actually billed to the room which should have been pointed out. The staff consistently were very helpful to make sure my stay was wonderful in every respect. The breakfast buffet while very crowded in the morning consisted of at least two hot entrees. It was somewhat typical of what one expects from a Residence Inn. Parking is by valet only and is $ 30.00 a night which seems steep even by Toronto standards. However since I was using a free night certificate they did not bill me for the parking charge. I would strongly recommend this hotel both to business travelers and couples who are visting Toronto and looking to see all of its many sites.
Stayed for a long weekend (01-03 June). Great service upon arrival, valet was prompt, was able to get the room early and on a high floor (20th) as requested.
Great stay but I'm not surprised. The people of Toronto are fantastic. I had high expectations from a brand new hotel in this part of Toronto and I wasn't let down. It was a little more expensive than I'm used to paying in Toronto but worth it for the location and flat sceen TV in the room. The staff were great ,the rooms were amazing, and the breakfast was delicious.
I would recommend this hotel for sure.
New gem for Marriott
The last few experiences I have had with Marriott have been exceptional, and my stay at the Residence Inn was no exception. First of all, the location is excellent! There are many restaurants nearby, and the hotel is a block away from the Skydome and CN Tower, and a block away from the Princess of Wales and Royal Alexander theatres. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are new and well furnished. I stayed on the 21st floor and didn't notice any street noise. The continental breakfast was a nice way to start the day, and I understand that there are similar things in the evening during the week. I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Toronto area.
Toronto Home away from Home
The Staff here were very very friendly ......they really made us feel at home right away.
We happened to check in during Social Hour and the GM invited us personnaly to attend and was so friendly we didn't hesitate even though this is not the type of thing we usually go to.
The staff really went out of their way to give us suggestions on tours,restuarants etc. and gave good directions too.
We we're a family of 4 and got the 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with full kitchen. Everything was spotless.....of course the hotel was new so that was easy.
I loved my stay but I will say that there was really no view at all so if you want a view this would not be the hotel for you, but if you want a friendly staff and a good location this is a wonderful place to stay.
A great hotel in the middle of the entertainment district, also within walking distance of Rogers Centre and CN Tower. It had been open only a few weeks when we were there. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Valet service was wonderful - courteous and prompt. The hotel went out of their way to make us welcome. We wanted a hotel with a pool for the children; they have a very nice one, and it was open from 6 am to 11 pm. The room price included hot breakfast in the hotel lobby.
