If this is your first time in Toronto, it may be somewhat overwhelming to navigate such a large city. Tall buildings, crowds of people, and an overall bustling downtown core – it’s a lot to take in! We provide you with tips to easily travel around the city so you may enjoy all it has to offer during your next extended stay:
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway line is an efficient way to get around. Quick arrival times make it a convenient option for those on the go. Further, extended hours allow you to make use of the subway well into the evening. The TTC stretches in the north and south direction (Yonge – University – Spadina line) and also operates in the east and west direction. Subway fares are inexpensive and volume discounts are available if you purchase several tokens or a weekly/monthly pass. Taking the subway also gives you easy access to PATH, Toronto’s expansive downtown underground pedestrian walkway. It’s in the PATH that you’ll find a vast array of retail spots, services, and entertainment options. If you have difficulty navigating around, subway cars and stations contain a visual map to outline the routes. Visit TTC online for further information on the TTC and routes.
TTC streetcars are noticeable by their red exterior and old-fashioned look. While riding a streetcar you will have the opportunity to take in scenic Toronto backdrops, like Little Italy or historic Old Town Toronto. The streetcars are particularly convenient if your stop is not near a subway line. If you need help finding your way around, you can chat with passengers or speak to the driver. Learn about the various routes here.
Seeing the City on Foot
No experience compares to seeing Toronto on foot. If you have some time to spare during the day, walking is a recommended way to get around. You’ll see the many of the neighbourhoods that make Toronto truly unique. Experience the diverse culture of Toronto and get the chance to network. It’s likely that you’ll pass by many landmark sites including the CN Tower. Walking around the city promotes daily exercise and is a good option with the warm weather approaching. If you need help with directions, it’s easy to strike up a conversation with locals.

For All Stays
Weekly Touch Up Service
For your safety and ours, weekly touch up service is cancelled until April 30, 2020. We encourage guests to utilize the ensuite washer and dryer to launder their linens and towels. For guests wishing to receive fresh linens, please send a request through Guest Services, and we will arrange to pick up your used linens (left in a bag at the front door inside the suite) and drop off fresh linen for you to use.
Our Commitment to High Cleaning Standards
We have always utilized commercial hospitality-grade cleaning procedures and supplies. We use specialized chemicals for different surfaces to ensure optimal disinfection. We also use new gloves and separate microfibre cleaning cloths for each suite to prevent cross-contamination. Any linens or cleaning cloths supplies by us have been professionally sanitized at a large commercial laundry facility.
Suite Visits by Guest Services & Maintenance
Until April 30, 2020, we will not conduct any suite tours for prospective guests, nor will any of our Maintenance or Guest Services team members visit occupied suites for any issues other than those relating to essential services.
We recognize that these are challenging times. Like many before it, this too will pass, and together we will get through it. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. We remain at your service 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns.
