Long weekend in Toronto

We will be coming to Toronto for a long weekend the end of April for a Blue Jays game. Other plans would be to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame and CN tower. Thinking of visiting Kensington Market also. Would appreciate comments on this area. Also, thinking of staying at the Grand Hotel. Would this be a good location? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

I wouild also go to the St. Lawrence Market on the Saturday......Kensington Market should be combined with a visit to Chinatown since they are next door to each other and possibly a visit to Little Italy depending on what type of meal you are in the mood for...

Hi jharring;

I would suggest locating a hotel a bit further west than the Grand Hotel, as Jarvis Street is a bit sketchy. Nothing unsafe, but an area prone to panhandlers and not suited to tourists.

Best Regards

The Grand is a beautiful hotel and close walking distance to the Eaton Centre. As Rescue Team mentioned if you stay further west you will be in a nicer area of the city where you can walk to places like the Rogers Centre, CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, Kensington, St. Lawrence Market etc. Restaurant options for every budget will be more accessible as well.

A few hotels you may wish to check out:

Eaton Chelsea

Pantages

King Edward

Royal York

Sheraton

Hilton

Hyatt Regency on King St.

Renaissance (attached to the baseball Stadium) which is beside the CN Tower, down the street from Hockey Hall of Fame

Intercontinental

Welcome to T.O.!

If you give us your budget it would narrow down the options.

One of the highlights of our stay was going to the Whistle Brewing place across from the CNTower/Ripleys, it was a great tour and very cheap - $10 gets you a glass of Pilsner on arrival, a bottle to drink while on the tour and you also get a free gift to chose from, brilliant value for money and fun

Ripleys aquarium is also good but can be too busy
