The property, formerly the Renaissance Toronto Downtown, is attached to the Rogers Centre and is within easy walking distance of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the CN Tower, the Air Canada Centre and Ripley’s Aquarium.

The property, which is known for its field-view guestrooms, has 313 guestrooms, 35 suites, and 11 meeting rooms over 12, 344 square feet, including the Northern Lights Ballroom (capacity: 320 attendees).
