I found the 4 Seasons to be really good, and world wide they seem to have a good name

Whereabouts in Toronto are you going to be? Westin Harbour Castle is along the waterfront; they have a revolving restaurant for a nice view of the city. The Holiday Inn along King St. is good too; it's near Chinatown if you'd like to explore that area, but it's also near the theater district if you'd like to watch a play or two while in town, and there are nice restaurants nearby. The Sheraton is right in the middle of downtown, near the City Hall, and Eaton Centre for shopping.

Not bad options Michelle. For Waterfront I find the Radisson Admiral great but at Christmas, a frozen(maybe) waterfront isn't a great view. I have always had a soft spot for the Westin as my hockey coach used to be the GM when it opened. The biggest sleeper value in town has been the One King West.

Travel Tips for Toronto

be part of the multitudes of...

by Pegasus74

be part of the multitudes of spectators of a Blue Jays game in an open-roof evening at the SkyDome. The domed roof illuminated by warm glow of funky purple lights canopy'd many of baseball actions, but with much attention given to the city's Jays. Or you might want to take yourself out to an ice hockey game, the country's most popular sport, and cheer behind the glass for the Maple Leafs. Otherwise, watch the Raptors in action and experience the ambience of an NBA game. It's no question that Toronto is a sports city and no surprise if the Torontonians will bid on the summer Olympics again.

Next to SkyDome stands the CN Tower - a lanky structure that serves as an important telecommication hub and Toronto's most recognizable icon. Never will you want to miss escalating to the top and watch the world under your feet through the glass floor of the tower. The ultimate, when it isn't too busy, is to try lying down on your front with your arms spread out. I double challenge you it's a sure thrill without the spill.

These two most visited landmarks are sandwiched between Spadina and University avenues in downtown Toronto. In their immediate nearness is a hot spot for musicals, concerts, restaurants and dance clubs which collectively form the Entertainment District. East of University Ave, the Financial District is shawdowed by its notably modern skyscrapers. This area is networked with an underground passage-way which houses a maze of shops and eateries.

Along walkways around the city, the graffiti which brightens the walls and billboards is perhaps some of the best I've ever seen. These street-art pieces are all over town, conspicuously put up along sidestreets in the Queen West area between Bathurst Street and Spadina Avenue.

Along Spadina Avenue between College and Dundas streets is a district which is home to many immigrants from the Far East. The street is a collection of wholesalers, fabric shops, designer goods, fruit stores and grocers. The colorful sights and cramped sidewalks of the district form the reputable Chinatown, one of Toronto's exclusive neighbourhoods. Asian eating houses are ubiquitous and almost invariably inexpensive. Be sure to smack your lips with roasted ducks/chickens and juicy tropical fruits before you unmingle yourself out of the almost Cantonese community.

Northwest of Dundas and Spadina avenues is the culturally collaged Kensington Market which holds innumerable types of businesses. The market has an eclectic combination of ethnicities and cultures that includes Eastern Europe, Portugese, Carribean, Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese. I hope that's complete but in all, they're represented by the array of ethnic grocery stores and food shops.

By the Lake Ontario south of downtown is a venue for arts and recreation. The district known as HarbourFront stages a myriad of outdoor concerts in summer. And if you're game to hit the lake on a boat, the sailing club is most possibly where you want to head. Or take a short and easy ferry ride to Tornoto Islands which offer sandy beaches and peaceful views of Toronto. In winter, ice-skaters predominate on the outdoor artificial ice rink by the lake. Lakefront attractions also include the waterfront nautical museum housed in the Harbourfront Centre. Nearby, the Harbourfront Antique Market showcase a wide collection of antiques from hundreds of antique dealers.

So there are lots to see, much to do and tons to consume in such a richly diverse cultural city. I bet there will be something that satisfy your taste. Check it out soon.

Flowers and Greens in Toronto

by freddie18

Flowers in gardens and greens in parks is everywhere in Toronto. Canada blooms in the month of March when the flower and garden festival is being held. It is indeed a treat to Garden-lovers from Canada and the United States to come to Toronto to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of spring and learn the latest about the flowers and plants in Canada.

Canada Blooms is just one of the festivals being held here in the city of Toronto. Another famous festival is held in Ottawa with thousands variety of tulips. Next year it will be held from May 2 to 19, 2008.

There are many more flower festivals held all over Canada. It is a clear indication on how we love to preserve the beauty of the greens and flowers.

Patios - Toronto's bars,...

by Unknown

Patios - Toronto's bars, restaurants and cafes all have patios. They might be small, perhaps carved out of an already too small sidewalk, or they may cover an entire rooftop, but sitting in the sun having a drink and a bite to eat while people watching is one of the best things about Toronto. It's truly our most popular recreational activity. Of course this only happens in the summer. In the winter, everyone grabs window seats at restaurants and cafes and dreams of the day the patios will open up again.
