Toronto: where to stay?

Jump to last reply

Next summer I'm going on a family road trip along the U.S. east coast, while I am looking forward to that, I also thought I would treat my self to a little pre-vacation vacation.

I'm thinking of going to Toronto since it's close (by air or train travel) to the road trip starting point.

I have never been to Toronto, or this "end" of Canada before, so I'm trying to figure out the layout and all.

My wish list for a hotel area would be:
- in walking distance of a park. Preferably the kind with grass to sit on and other nature features, so I can spend the days relaxing, drawing and people watching
- (short) walking distance to shopping, so I can browse to and from the park above
- area that isn't totally deserted at night, so I won't mind being out. I live in a larger city and are used to being out at all hours.... Better safe than sorry I guess

- nearby sightseeing would be great, but I have no problem using the subway
.... Bonus question - which attractions/sights are not to be missed?


I was looking at downtown, but the maps on the hotel sights show parks ans squares the same way, and so far none of the names I have googled, have been real parks....

So... Where should I stay?
