Sitting beside the modern skyscrapers and flashy harbour front, you'll find the 19th century St. Lawrence Market, the perfect place to pick up some local produce and street eats. Not far away, you'll find the distinctive red bricks of the Distillery District where industrial warehouses have been transformed into charming cafes and independent art studios.
In fact, there's so much to see in the city, you'll definitely want to spend a few nights there. Here are our top picks for cheap hotels, luxury picks and boutique stays in Toronto.
Compared to the rest of Canada, accommodation in Toronto can be expensive. If you're looking for an affordable room, you'll need to be prepared to forfeit a few of those creature comforts – budget hotels in Toronto offer pretty basic double rooms for no less than $85. If you're looking for something cheaper, consider staying in a hostel or visiting during the shoulder season (fall and spring) when the weather's not too cold and the prices aren't too high.
Downtown Toronto is just about as central as you can get to almost all of the city's top attractions.
Plenty of restaurants and bars will all be within walking distance, or a very short drive away. You will also find the Distillery District, the Art Gallery of Ontario and Bloor Street, the high-end shopping street that has been dubbed the Mink Mile, nearby.
While Toronto's 5-star hotels all share a similarly hefty price tag and immaculately furnished spacious suites, some go the extra mile with rooftop bars, infinity pools and views over Lake Ontario. You'll find most peppered around Old Toronto or Yorkville.
If you're bored of staying in the same hotels and are after something a little more exotic, Toronto has heaps of boutique hotels hidden away in former chocolate factories and converted warehouses, all of which make for a memorable stay.
Choosing to stay in a property on Airbnb or Stayz not only makes your trip to Toronto more affordable but also more memorable. Properties range from private rooms in shared accommodation to having free rein of some of the most unique spaces in the city.
If you're taking on Canada by campervan, there's nowhere to park within the realms of Toronto's city limits, but there are countless campgrounds to choose from if you head a little further out. One of the closest options is Glen Rouge Campground, which is around a thirty-minute drive from the city centre, but just five minutes from the Toronto Zoo.
There are plenty of hotels sitting right outside Toronto's Pearson airport, including the upscale Sheraton Gateway Hotel, the mid-range NU Hotel and the low-cost Comfort Inn.
Most hotels within Toronto's downtown area will be just a short distance away from the Eaton Centre. Some of the closest include Pantages Hotel Toronto Centre, DoubleTree by Hilton Toronto Downtown and Bond Place Hotel.
To be close to the entertainment hub that is the Rogers Centre, consider staying in the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel, the Bisha Hotel Toronto or the InterContinental Toronto Centre.
Claiming to be the largest zoo in Canada, staying close to the Toronto Zoo means you'll be in prime position to explore every single inch of this family-friendly attraction. Along with plenty of smaller homestays in the area, consider staying at Travelodge by Wyndham Toronto or Holiday Inn Express Toronto East.
These sites let you make a refundable booking for your trip to Toronto, so there's less risk of losing the cost of your stay or deposit. Some sites only offer free cancellation on select Toronto hotels or at a slightly higher rate, so it's best to check the terms on your booking before confirming your stay.
Most sites, like Wotif or Expedia, will clearly state whether each Toronto hotel is non-refundable.
Using one of our coupon codes at these sites will save you money on your Toronto stay. Some may ask you to pay for your stay upfront rather than on arrival in order to apply the code to your Toronto booking, but the same cancellation policy does apply so if you are able to cancel, you'll be able to get refunded.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances.

If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature.

Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle.
