Watching the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Scotiabank Arena at the Toronto Maple Leafs in November 2021, my wife and I had a very convenient hotel option in the heart of the Canadian city: the Delta Hotels by Marriott (there is really a plural Hotels in the official name…) is just a few steps away from the venue, so that we did not even need a warm jacket to have some ice hockey. This definitely sounds like the hotel is worth a review.
Delta Hotels Toronto – Location
The hotel is indeed located in an ideal location in Toronto’s city center. A lot of major attractions are just a few hundred meters away. No matter whether you head for the Maple Leafs, the Rogers Center (baseball), the CN Tower or Ripley’s Aquarium – you definitely won’t take the car out of the hotel garage for these places. The hotel is right South of Union Station, which also leads to very good connections. The hotel has got a PATH connection.
There are numerous restaruants and bars around the hotel, also due to the nearby Scotiabank Arena. Of course, there are also some other overnights – but the Delta was the best value for money in our point of view. The hotel is built on top of a parking garage. You may do self parking, which was 36 CAD during our stay, but did not include an in/out option. Valet parking is 52 CAD / day. The access to self-parking is on the West side of the hotel, at Lower Simcoe Street.
Delta Hotels Toronto – The Room
For our stay at the Delta, we opted for a standard King room, which was 227.99 CAD, including all taxes, but excluding breakfast and parking. The room was on the 17th floor and thus on the rather lower part of the hotel (there are even “upper half” and “lower half” elevator – very good!). Of course, it is a city center hotel, so that you could not expect huge space for that price. But the room was definitely nice and came with sufficient space for all our suitcases and equipment. The work desk was really nice and large and came with a nice option of connectors to the screen and other appliances in the room. The mini bar was next to the bed, which felt a bit of strange. Funnily, the room did not only have a look over Union Station – but also right to the Intercontinental Toronto Centre and the room I stayed in just some two months before that stay.
The bathroom (with shower) was really nice. I liked to have sufficient space for your toiletries. Everything was clean and the room featured nice amenities as well.
Delta Hotels Toronto – Breakfast
As breakfast was not included in our price anyway and the room service breakfast had exactly the same price as having a bite in their SOCO Kitchen + Bar, we went for breakfast in the room. My wife went for some oats with fruit and a wholegrain waffle with banana, while I had a breakfast sandwich with a large bowl of fruit salat and breakfast potatoes. Room service was even quicker than expected. Including taxes and tips as well as two bottles of orange juice, the breakfast was some 85 CAD. As the quality was really good and the breakfast was absolutely filling, we felt that this is a reasonable price and a good service.
Delta Hotels Toronto – Service
Check-in was really friendly. The check-out could be processed through the Marriott app, which worked very well. The hotel does have a fitness and pool area, which, however, required additional registration, so that I did not have a look. There was no issue regarding the WiFi connection.
Delta Hotels Toronto – My View
The stay at the Delta Hotels outlet was really good. The location was just excellent, the service was good, we loved the food in the morning. Regarding the location, the room rate as well as the parking fee were absolutely reasonable. If you want to go for the Maple Leafs, the Blue Jays, a concert or just like to sleep at a very central place, this one is definitely a good option.
