Expert review of Residence Inn by Marriott Toronto Downtown Entertainment

Bright, cheerful and central, this 3-star racks up an incredible number of repeat guests.

One of the youngest and sprightliest of Residence Inns, this family friendly downtown delight wins sky high rave reviews from pretty much everyone who stays here. I agree — the combination of free WiFi, complimentary breakfast buffets, evening social hours and excellent service makes this a brilliant budget choice.

Location: 

Perfect: within strolling distance of shopping, nightlife and the theatre district, the Spadina and King streetcars are within a block.

Bedrooms: 

I find the 256 roomy suites with their separate living and sleeping areas to be perfect for a longer stay, whether I’m want to work, whip up a modest dinner in the handy kitchen (with its dishwasher, stove, fridge and granite countertops) or just put my feet up and watch the LCD TV or take advantage of the free WiFi. To feel like you’re really in Toronto, ask for a south facing room with a CN Tower view

Public areas: 

A wee gift shop has a few vital items for sale, but you’re better nipping out to nearby stores. I make good use of the laundry facilities and really enjoyed the free coffee and fireplace in the bright lobby.

Eating and drinking: 

A complimentary breakfast buffet and Monday to Thursday evening social hours are a great way to cut down costs, especially if you’ve got the kids in tow. It’s far from fancy food, but will fill a few gaps. There’s also a lobby bar.

Leisure facilities: 

The “happy noise” in and around the pool at this family-popular hotel get a bit much for me, at times, but time your trip for times when the tykes are at school and you can usually get a few laps in.

Service: 

Friendly, efficient and cheerful.
