We would love to visit the city and stay somewhere central but the rates in the summer, actually most of the year, are very high. It is great value in Feb. but I wonder if we are foolish to think of it. We want to visit the art museums and see all the main sights. Is it worth waiting and paying almost twice as much or is public transportation good enough that we will manage without freezing? Is the city full of wind tunnels like Toronto is in the downtown core? Would appreciaate feedback.
