After spending months ransacking the internet searching for a spa tub room with a view – I hit the jackpot at the Delta-Marriott in Toronto. A hotel that offers so much more than just a room, and I might be a little bit bias here, but you’d have to see it to believe it. If I like something and find value in it, I do my best to share. I’m not a finders keepers kinda girl. I’ve lived in Toronto my entire life, and let me tell you, this hotel really did a number on me.
Birthdays are a big deal to me. I have hopped on a plane for every birthday over the past four years but this year was different (cue COVID-19). So, I wanted to have a birthday that was distinct from what I would typically do if I were at home in Toronto. Low and behold, google hooked a sister up. I found a spa bathtub room across the CN Tower, Ripley’s aquarium, and near the lakefront – solid steal.
Location, Location, Location
Whether you’re a tourist or live in the city, Delta Hotels by Marriott on 75 Lower Simcoe Street is situated in a prime spot. You are a 7-minute walk to the CN Tower, Rogers Center, and Ripley’s Aquarium. Not to mention you are within walking distance to Steam Whistle Biergarten, Union Station, coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. The best yet – you’re arms reach from the waterfront. Imagine what a beautiful sunny day would have in store for you. Just park your car up and walk yourself everywhere.
Delta Hotels by Marriott is home to hundreds of hotels that prides itself on the details. Since there are multiple Delta-Marriott locations in Downtown Toronto, be sure to book the 75 Lower Simcoe Street hotel to experience the enchanting Toronto views. Prior to booking your stay, check out their website for any updates and precautions.
We checked in around 5 PM and requested a late checkout, which they graciously granted for 2 PM the next day – this has never been offered in the history of my hotel stays. So, I took it and ran. The staff were friendly, helpful, and courteous. We called down a handful of times – forks, knives, bottle opener, bathrobes – towels, and more towels (for a one night stay, we were quite needy). The items were bagged and dropped off at our door with the staff 6 feet away at all times. I mean they had me at late checkout, so you aren’t going to hear a peep out of me.
Skyline Soaker Room
All the bases were covered. The basis being, cleanliness, room temperature, down comforters, fluffy pillows, spotless bathroom, and the most important part – a spa tub overlooking the city. The first thing I like to do when I get into a hotel room is jump right into bed. The bed covers serenaded my body, and my head melted right into the pillows. My birthday was at midnight, and I contemplated the need to stay awake (that darn tub).
If we’re staying at a hotel in the city – it’s to relax and enjoy the amenities. The spa soaker tub was the end all, be all reason we booked our stay here, and it certainly had me running around in circles with heart eyes. In all honesty, I certainly spent more time in the bathtub than the bed.
If I could open the window in the bathroom, I was certain I could have touched the CN Tower – that’s how close we were. Okay, I exaggerate a little, but it’s as close as it gets. At night you get the glimmering lights show, and during the day, you watch all the action while soaking it in from the top.
Delta- Marriott provides onsite parking for a fee, laundry services, grab-n-go breakfast, a barber/beauty shop, an indoor pool, and a fitness center. Your room comes equipped with a coffee maker/tea service, mini-refrigerator, a television, WiFi, iron, alarm clock, and a safe. There is a smoke-free policy, and pets are welcome (major win).
If you are looking to book a room at the Delta-Marriott, specifically the soaker tub room, I suggest you book a non-refundable room and monitor the prices. From my initial booking up to 2 weeks before my stay – the price dropped about $50 CAD. I’ve seen the prices for as low as $160 CAD/night – so keep your eyes peeled.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend the Delta-Marriott hotel far and wide. The staff were keen to please. Anything we requested was delivered to us. We were granted a late checkout. The hotel room views left a glimmer in our eyes. If you’re staying at this hotel – don’t bother going out; better yet, don’t leave the tub, or you might regret it. Granted the opportunity, I would stay here again, without so much as batting an eyelash.
