When you travel in Toronto,hotels around Toronto must be one of your interests.Where to Stay in Toronto for Sightseeing?For sightseeing and entertainment,the best place to stay in Toronto is right downtown in the heart of the action.The hotels listed below are all highly-rated and in good locations in Toronto's city center,within easy walking distance of many of the main attractions.
Budget Hotels:With a good location in Chinatown,on the eastern side of the city center,is the reasonably priced Super 8.A few blocks north of the popular Yonge and Dundas Square area is The Saint James Hotel,which is always highly rated.The Comfort Inn City Centre is a little less centrally located but offers good value if you don't mind walking a little further or taking public transport.
Luxury Hotels:At the top-end of the luxury category is The Ritz-Carlton,with a convenient,central location near the Entertainment and Financial Districts.Delta Toronto,just opened in 2014,has a great location near the CN Tower,Ripley's Aquarium,and Rogers Center,and offers good views over Lake Ontario.Near Eaton Center Shopping Complex and Toronto's famous City Hall and winter skating rink are the Hilton and Sheraton,both luxury hotels with nice indoor/outdoor pools.
Mid-Range Hotels:At the top-end of the mid-range selection is the Radisson Admiral on the waterfront.This is a great spot,particularly in summer,near many lakefront restaurants and an extensive waterfront pedestrian area and within walking distance of the CN Tower and other attractions.The hotel also has an outdoor pool.
The Novotel is another good choice,on The Esplanade near the St.Lawrence Market and trendy restaurants with outdoor dining in the summer.North of The Esplanade and within easy walking distance of the Financial District and many attractions is the Holiday Inn Express,another quality mid-range hotel.
Ripley's Aquarium of Canada
One of Toronto's newest attractions is the Ripley's Aquarium near the base of the CN Tower.This fabulous facility displays all kinds of marine life but the most impressive feature is the huge underwater tunnel with a moving sidewalk.
Visitors can watch the ocean world go by all around them as sharks glide past and sawfish linger on the tunnel roof above.This is a truly serene experience for all ages.Another unexpected highlight is the jellyfish display,accented with creative lighting.Further on,touch tanks with stingrays and small sharks allow for a hands-on experience.And for the engineering minded,the building's open concept also allows for a look at the Life Support System and filtration equipment operating the facility.
