It's not just the staggering skyline – which features the iconic spike of the CN Tower – that makes Downtown Toronto such a thrilling place to visit. There's also Yonge-Dundas Square – bathed in neon and the glow of animated billboards, it's the city's answer to Times Square. Jumping bars and clubs await on King Street West, and then there's the PATH – stretching over 28 kilometers, it's the world's largest underground shopping mall.
A city in itself, Markham is revered as one of the tech capitals of Canada – in fact, it's been likened to Silicon Valley. There's history to be enjoyed here as well, though. Markham Museum is an open-air site spread over 25 acres where you can explore perfectly preserved historic buildings. Another thriving community is Richmond Hill – its dozens of public parks make it a perfect place to relax.
Some may think it a suburb, but North York has its share of gleaming high-rises and the vibe can be like that of any busy city. It's home to Toronto Centre for the Arts, a cultural hub where you can catch blockbuster shows and avant-garde plays. The nearby city of Vaughan is where you'll find the epic mall, Vaughan Mills, a place you can easily spend a whole day shopping.
Immaculately preserved, Industrial Era buildings house boutiques, bars, and restaurants in Toronto's charming Distillery District. You really get a sense of the city's history even as you enjoy the artisan bakeries and contemporary art galleries that now exist among the old tank houses and warehouses. Perfect for a wander on a sunny day, the area is also the setting for numerous street festivals over the year.
Combining small-town charm with the bustling attractions of a city, Oakville sits on the cusp of Lake Ontario – you can have an amble by the gentle waters, watch the yachts bobbing in the sun, and relax in a bar or café. If you want to practice your swing, where better than Glen Abbey? Designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, it's one of the most revered courses in Canada.

"Very convenient to city centre"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Sep 25, 2012
The room was very clean, as was the hotel. I was very satisfied with the hotel staff. There is a launderette available for washing clothes. The room had a microwave, fridge, tv, chair and table and en-suite bathroom. The hotel is ideally situated just off the main street, Yonge Street, and within walking distance of the centre. Union Station, the main bus and train terminal, is also within walking distance or a few stops on the Subway. The nearby Church-Wellesley Village is a lively neighbourhood.
