The Venue


The venue for RCW 139: Toronto Holiday is the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville. This hotel was formerly the Radisson Plaza Hotel, where RCW 139: Due It Again! (1997), RCW 139: A Cop, A Mountie, and A Convention (1998), and RCW 139: Ride Forever (1999) were held.


The Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville is ideally located in the fashionable Yorkville district of downtown Toronto, with direct access to the city's two main subway lines. The hotel features 222 comfortable rooms (renovated since the change from Radisson to Marriott), a restaurant, fitness centre, and sauna. The hotel is only minutes away from many Toronto attractions. For more details, please consult the hotel website.
