Where to Stay in Toronto

This East Coast wonder city is a must-visit, with attractions like the CN Tower and Eaton Centre helping to attract over 40 million visitors to Toronto each year.

The fact that there are direct flights to Toronto makes the city really accessible and the perfect destination for a city break. It’s also a great starting point for a Canadian adventure.

Fortunately there isn’t a shortage of places to stay as the City of Toronto website reports that there are more than 43,000 hotel rooms in the greater Toronto region! That means the city has the greatest selection of accommodation in Canada.
