Renaissance Toronto's View Will Keep You There Extra Innings
March 5, 2009 at 11:45 AM
We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
A couple seasons ago, we gave you a pretty comprehensive look at all the hotels near MLB stadiums but this one, excuse the atrocious pun, is sort of the Grand Slam of MLB stadium views.
Behold the view of the baseball field at Toronto's Rogers Centre (formerly known as the SkyDome), home of the Blue Jays, from the Renaissance Toronto Downtown Hotel. No, seriously. This is for reals a view from a room.
The hotel is actually attached to the SkyDome making it the world's only 4 diamond hotel located in a major league sports and entertainment venue and one of the 70 rooms will cost you around $149+ CAD. This shot, which comes to us via dead_squid, is from a Bi-Level Stadium View suite, which starts around $550 per night. Other rooms look out onto the city, and the hotel is in seriously close proximity to the famous CN Tower where you can look out onto the ol' TO from the world's highest observation deck.
However, as we mentioned before when we gave you that big ol' MLB hotels map: when the Jays are playing, that means the floodlights are on and coming in through your windows, too.
