Fort York is located in downtown Toronto, and according to MS Streets & Trips, is approx. 1500 yards west of the Skydome (now called the Rogers Centre).

The Renaissance Downtown Toronto is attached to the Skydome (Rogers Centre), so that would be closest hotel to the festival.

Hotel Le Germain is 3 blocks north of the dome, so that could be a second option.

Sorry, I have never been to the festival, so I can't comment on that question, however, I'm sure one of the local experts will have the answers.

Best Regards

1. Ft York www.toronto.ca/culture/fort_york.htm is south of the Entertainment District.

2. It is a fun festival. There's music and food. Laid back kind of atmosphere.

3. For hotels, you may want to consider Renaissance Toronto Hotel Downtown (aka skydome hotel) or Holiday Inn on King

If you haven't already, you'll want to look at www.beerfestival.ca/faqs.html

Fort York is actually west of the entertainment district, just west of Bathurst and north of the Gardiner expressway. It's not far from all the downtown action, just a little awkward to get to by public transit.

The nearest hotel is the Travelodge on King:


From there, Fort York is a 10-minute walk. If you're looking for something more upscale, Le Germain is an excellent choice:


The Residence Inn is another nearby option:
