Art Gallery of Ontario

Hi..are there any nice, budget (is this an oxymoron??) hotels in the area of the AGO...friends visiting from overseas and we'll be doing some travelling around SW Ontario. They would like to go to Toronto for just a day or two and are very interested in the AGO exhibit this summer. There'll be 6 of us travelling, Any ideas for hotels and restaurants in that particular area? Thanks.

Hi canchick;

Any downtown hotel will be a short TTC ride to the AGO.

Best Regards

There is a list of budget hotels on our "Where to Stay" page, tripadvisor.ca/Travel-g155019-c58140/Toronto… . Closest of those to the AGO is the Super 8 in Chinatown -- definitely a budget hotel, with mixed reviews.

You could also look at Hotwire or Priceline (also described on the Where to Stay page) for downtown west -- after all, the AGO would be, at worst, a quick subway or streetcar ride away.

You might want to consider this place, as well:

It's on a great little street just north of the AGO.

Hi..thanks..don't want to stay at a Super 8 or share bathroom and think around $90 night mid week? Will that get us anything decent?

$90/room/night in downtown Toronto is tricky. That's definitely Hotwire/Priceline territory (no refunds, so make sure your plans are firm before you book). Looking at random weekday summer dates (July 18-20) for Hotwire: US$99 gets you a 4-star in Downtown East (e.g. King Edward, Marriott Eaton Centre, Marriott Bloor-Yorkville, Suites @ 1 King West, Westin Harbour Castle), or US$78 gets you a 2-star in Downtown West (probably the Super 8!).

better stay outside of the city a bit and rent a car with the money you save.
