Toronto locals- a couple questions semi-urgent.

Jump to last reply

So, this trip didn't start out too lucky. I had a 4-day pre-trip to visit family in Chicago and I had packed in a way that I could wash all that clothes before leaving Chicago. Alas, my sister's washing machine was broken and I didn't get my stuff washed.

The hotel I am at does not have an in-house laundromat (is that only US hotels?), but I have found one within walking distance. What I need to know is how much I should expect to pay to wash and dry one load of clothes. What denomination coins will I need?

Second item- the airline broke the pull-up handle on my large suitcase. :( It was a nightmare dragging that sucker through the airport and onward. Additionally, I failed to realize all the stuff I was going to have to take home with me (new laptop, docking bay, headsets, travel bag, etc.)

SO, I need to know a good place to buy some new luggage asap. I prefer someplace I can get to via the subway, as I have no vehicle. I don't want high-end, but I don't want low-end either. (Looking for something with that formed polyfoam that makes a suitcase durable but lightweight.) Any ideas? (If I were in the US, I'd go to Penney's or Sears. Don't know what the equivalent is here.) Help! :(

If you need more info, please let me know. I think my office-mates said I can get to the York Mills Mall easily. Does anyone know that mall and what place there would be best to look for luggage? I found a website, but it didn't list the stores that are in the mall, nor did it sound like there were a lot of them. I'm lost and would appreciate any assistance!

Thanks!!!
