If you have to take the train into Toronto and end up here at Union Station it is a real hub bub spot. So many food spots and yummy treats. There is even shopping!

Union Station is a big headache of plywood, contradicting signs, and dim lighting, so unless you're catching VIA or the GO, I'd avoid it as much as possible until its done. Streetcars and alternative subway stations are a short walk away. The architecture of the building is still largely visible, but its a maze to get where you want to... More

Union Station has been under renovation for many years and still look terrible. It is put to shame next to other train stations around the world.Don'r waste your time going there.

This station can be so confusing as there is just so much going on. I must confess I got a bit lost as the signs aren't very clear, plus I didn't really know where I was going. However, the staff are very friendly and incredibly helpful, making the navigation a lot easier.

At the end of the day, my colleague took me in underground tunnels with shops and restaurants which led us to... More

Union Station is very historic and architecturally pleasing. Hib of Toronto for transportation via the subway or Go transit. Across from the historic Royal York hotel which offers afternoon tea and other food. Hub of shopping, theatre and financial districts. Head underground to the Path and explore all shops and restaurants in the underground. Head in any direction for sights.... More

A beautiful example of 1920's architecture. In the Great Hall, high ceilings and high windows let out the hot air in summer, and the frieze of Canadian destinations is a reminder of the role of the railways in uniting us. The other areas are something of a maze. The train shed is being renovated to be brighter and dryer with... More

The Via rail concourse is in absolute disarray as it's being completely renovated. Both info desks I visited were not being manned on a Monday at 16:00 during a workday. After spending sometime searching I found an online map that was understandable and quickly allowed me to get my bearings. Not sure how hard it would be to have the... More

I used to go through Union Station every day when I worked at Yonge and Front. and after a couple months a became quite familiar with my path, but if I had to go anywhere else I had not clue how to get there.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
