Whether you are coming to Toronto for business or pleasure I can guarantee you will have a great time. There is so much to see and do in Canada’s largest city you will need more than a weekend to even scratch the surface of what you can experience. Your choice of Toronto hotels is also massive, but I think the one with the best value and location is the Chelsea Hotel at Yonge & Gerrard Street. It is Canada’s largest hotel and it is in the heart of all the action you could want and desire. Just a few minutes on foot and you can access the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission – Subway, Streetcar & Buses) which will get you anywhere in the city you need to be. World class shopping, dining and entertainment are all at your convenience at the Chelsea Hotel, and best of all it is affordable.
Check out the short video I made of a recent stay I had at the Chelsea Hotel over New Years. On mornings where I wanted to sleep in a bit all I had to do was go downstairs to get my morning espresso and for a late night snack, the Market Garden offered me freshly made pizzas + more.
As for my room, the hotel went through a massive renovation prior to Toronto hosting the Pan Am games in 2016. This means that everything is up to date and refreshed.
I’m rarely disconnected from the internet and the WiFi offered at the Chelsea Hotel is A+++. I may have done a little Netflix surfing while I was chilling during my stay.
If you are planning on visiting Toronto this Winter season don’t fret there is lots to see and do. Three things you can do within a 20-minute walk from the Hotel.
- Shop – Yonge & Bloor is 8 minutes away by subway and 15 minutes on foot. Some of the biggest names in the retail world can be found here, or you can stay indoors by shopping at the Toronto Eaton Centre just 600 meters away.
- Culture – The Royal Ontario Museum is only 1.6 km away and the Art Gallery of Ontario is only 1.2 km. the exhibitions are always changing so there is something new everytime you visit. The Chihuly exhibit at the ROM was truly spectacular.
- World Class Dining – on foot, subway or UBER the eats of Toronto are at your fingertips. There is everything from fast food chains, casual restaurants to fine dining. The choices are in the hundreds so pick a craving and have it satisfied.
