Spring training is coming to an end, and opening day is nearly upon us. It’s been a slow five months since the last game was played, but the wait is almost over… which means it’s time to celebrate. And no, we’re not talking about spraying champagne in the clubhouse (although that certainly is tempting). In fact, the best way to celebrate Major League Baseball’s return is to watch a game live from the stands, or better yet, watch it live from the only hotel within a stadium, Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel.
While it’s fun to high-five fellow fans after someone crushes a home run, sitting in the stands has its flaws. Instead of stepping over leftover nachos and having back pain after the fifth inning, wouldn’t you rather be comfortable while watching the game? When you book one of the hotel’s 70 rooms overlooking Rogers Centre, not only do you get to enjoy a viewing experience unlike any other, but the comforts of a plush mattress draped in luxury bedding with fluffy pillows. You can also take advantage of the convenient amenities provided in all the accommodations including flat-panel TVs, mini-refrigerators, room service and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, making it easy to share photos of the game or look up stats on the fly.
When it comes to fueling up, those chili dogs and pizza slices aren’t doing your body any favors. Lucky for you, greasy stadium food isn’t your only option at the Rogers Centre. The hotel’s on-site restaurant, Arriba, offers an eclectic assortment of international cuisine and an array of refreshing cocktails. Delight in some Canadian Artisan Cheeses, a savory burger or duck confit pan sauce while reveling in the terrific view of the field Arriba provides, or order room service to dine in.
For those that don’t want to watch all nine innings (we get it, the games can be long), spend some time training like the pros do at the hotel’s contemporary fitness center, or rent a bike and ride along the waterfront trail. If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience, you can always opt for a swim in the sparkling indoor pool.
All good things must come to an end, but the fun doesn’t have to stop when the game does. The Toronto hotel lies only steps away from CN Tower, home to a revolving restaurant that features picturesque views of downtown. For those looking for more excitement, Budweiser Stage and Ripley’s Aquarium are only moment’s away, so you can catch a performance by your favorite artist or go on an underwater adventure at your own convenience.
