Re: Toronto cont...

Toronto type people/visitors. This is a request from a young lady friend of mine. She said she'd tried Google, I said you need OMJ. Apparently she's not heard of that. Weird. Help her out please.

I basically just want to know if I can get to all the tourist places by subway/metro or do I need to rent a car, looking at the Chelsea hotel and most important venue to reach is the air Canada centre.

Online some review sites say that the transport is a bit hit and miss so I don’t know if people tend to drive more.

Call me up in dreamland. Radio to me man.

soon to be the Scotia Bank Arena ...
No need to rent a car. walk or subway you can see all of Toronto's 4 tourist attractions big_smile
Chelsea Hotel, dont know it but gets a poor Trip Advisor. The Hilton is good as is the Renaissance as you can book a room that overlooks the baseball field ...

any other questions ask Misura, he knows more than I do

Re: Toronto cont...

Obviously this is all subject to ratification/agreement by TT.........

but If she's not already booked the Chelsea Hotel, i would suggest looking on booking.com and seeing what's available on the corner of Blue Jays Way & Front St West. There are a few good apartments for rent which are better value for money than hotels and you can self cater. A couple of 24/7's down there for food. This area is safe and good because it's walkable from the union trainstation (train from airport stops here). Union is also on the metro. It's also walkable to the rogers centre, air canada and cn tower. It's also walkable to the lakeside. The tram system basicall run north/south & east/west. From BJW you can walk to spadina avenue, which is the main north/south run, which gives easy access to queen st, king st and dundass, which offers easy walking to plenty of stuff. TT's empire is situate off queen st at it's west end, and it's pretty cool for cats up there. Has a strong camden/northern quarter/hockley vibe. At this end of Spadina is toronto's china town and Kensington markets, again cool.

The city airport is a short taxi/long walk and from there she can go on flight to niagra/sight seeing.

St. Lawrence market is pretty cool and is on the east end of Front street and walkable from BJW.

The Eaton Center is also walkable, and this is the large indoor shoppig centre.

December can be nippy, but not blistering cold and walking about shouldn't be a problem. The temp is usually just below/above frezzing.

Anywhere else, then catch a taxi.

Told you,  he knows way more than me.

1st week of December, just in time for the sales wink

If they're a bit 'trendy' they may want to opt for the Drake on our manor... near all the bars, restaurants etc.
Expedia I've found always comes up trumps on pricing
