Last time I took it (about six months ago) it cost me 50$ (limo or regular taxi).

The Royla York is fairly central and public transport in Toronto is excellent so you don't need to hire a car.

You will be right across the street from the main train station, Union Station. The subway stops there and will make it easy to get around and there is a large public transit system you can connect into. Car - parking where you are staying is a pain (right downtown), but depending on where you want to go, a car may be a good option.

Ride the Rocket! Toronto has an excellent public transport system -

The system is pretty extensive with buses, trams and the metro. It's easy to use and covers the whole metropolitan area including the airport 192 bus.

Depending on how much you want to use it, or how long you are going to be staying, there's a variety of fare and pass options. A single fare is $3 CDN which includes transfers within the time limit whilst a day ticket for unlimited travel is $10. There's also a weekly ticket for about $50.

All the info is on the website.

Your hotel is central downtown and so is easy to get about from using the Rocket and that'll save you the hassle of parking etc.

As others have already mentioned the public transport system is excellent. For getting around Toronto I wouldn't bother with car hire, but for going to say Naigara Falls or other out of town destinations, a car can be the best option. It would be an idea to check first, though, as the Union Station is across the street from your hotel, and there is even an underground walkway between the two. If you are going to change between subway, streetcars (trams) or buses, it's a good idea to take a transfer from a transfer machine or from the bus or streetcar driver. These are not always needed as buses and streetcars often come right into the subway station area, but it's best to play safe. If you don't want to buy a day or week pass, then you can buy tickets or tokens in multiples to save a bit of money and always have them ready, as some subway entrances are unmanned. For details of fares etc, go to .Enjoy your holiday, Bruce

I would think Parking at the RY will match the cab/limo rate

You could negotiate $45. You could also get there by taking a bus to kipling subway station, then to bloor and then the yonge line.

EATON CENTRE is a very nice and attractive shopping mall with over 300 stores and it is one of Toronto's most popular attractions. It has a glass roof with fiberglass Canadian Geese hanging down from it,they almost look real! There are three levels to Eaton Centre and the prices seem to go up the higher you get,with the most expensive stores on the top level.
