The new Toronto Marriott City Centre arrives on the scene

TORONTO — The Toronto Marriott City Centre is the new name for the hotel formerly known as the Renaissance Toronto Downtown, located steps from the Metro Toronto Conference Centre, the CN Tower and Ripley’s Aquarium and best known as the hotel that’s attached to the Rogers Centre.

As a part of the ongoing redesign of Marriott Hotels, the signature brand of Marriott International, the Toronto Marriott City Centre combines the brand’s guest-centered approach to service and design with a prime destination location, says Marriott.

Guests have easy access to the most popular Toronto landmarks plus Union Station, Air Canada Centre and Toronto’s entertainment and business districts are close by, giving the hotel appeal for both the business and leisure travel markets.

“Our focus was to bring the brand to life, enabling us to create brilliant experiences for all our travelers, albeit business or pleasure” says General Manager, Dan Woodburn. “Our approach to the transformation project was to elevate key touch points of the guest experience through applying inventive and dynamic cornerstone values. Toronto Marriott City Centre has accomplished this and more, and we know our guests will be thrilled.”

He adds that the hotel’s rooms now feature mobile check-in and keyless entry, plus there are spa-inspired bathrooms, new Simmons Recharge Plush mattresses and a new entertainment system featuring seamless access through 55″ LED HD Televisions offering Netflix, YouTube and other popular apps.

There’s also a fully renovated fitness centre featuring all new equipment, Fitness on Demand virtual fitness classes and an oversized, heated indoor pool. The lobby level restaurant has been renovated and diners can witness Toronto Blue Jays batting practice or the whole game live thanks to floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look into the Rogers Centre, says Woodburn.
