Tips For Staying Near Air Canada Centre

Location
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Air Canada Centre, known simply as "the ACC", is home to the Toronto Maple Leafs (NHL), the Toronto Raptors (NBA) and the Toronto Rock Lacrosse Club. It also hosts a wide range of concerts and conventions throughout the year. 
more...
Getting Around
The ACC is close to the Gardiner Expressway (a 1-minute drive) and Toronto's transit hub, Union Station (a 7-minute walk), as well as all the amenities and attractions of downtown Toronto.

Toronto Public Transit connects to the entire city of Toronto at a cost of $3 per ride (per way) or an unlimited day pass can be purchased for $10.75. 

Also in Union Station, guests can find Go Bus and Train services to areas within the Greater Toronto Area and beyond, as well as Via Rail services linking to the rest of Canada. Union Station is a mere 7-minute walk from the ACC and highly recommended as a means of transportation in Toronto.

Walking is a popular means of transportation in the downtown core, due to traffic congestion and the high price of parking downtown. Visitors to the Air Canada Centre may also want to note that all of the hotels featured below are within a 13-minute walk of the ACC and most are less than 10 minutes' walk to the ACC.

If you're attending a concert or game at the ACC in the colder months, taxis are an fast and efficient way of getting around in downtown Toronto. They are plentiful and can be flagged down on the street for a quick drive to the ACC or a downtown restaurant.

Downtown Toronto is a bicycle-friendly city with dedicated bike lanes. Many visitors use Bixi bike rentals to get to where they want to go. For commuting quickly from one place to another, they are a cheap and convenient method of transportation. There are dozens of stations in downtown Toronto to serve commuters. You simply swipe your credit card, mount the bike and ride to another bike station near to your destination. Once there, you lock the bike securely at that station and walk the rest of the way to your destination.

Parking
While the ACC has two levels of underground parking, these spots are reserved for private suite holders and office tenants. Disabled parking is available at a cost of $30, and guests entering the lot are required to present their tickets. These spots must be reserved in advance by calling (416) 815-5982.

Nearby there are approximately 13,000 public parking spaces in lots spread out across the downtown core. Prices are not set and can fluctuate based on the event.

Dining
Fine dining options vary from the Platinum Club, which features a wine bar, to the Hot Stove Club, a steakhouse, and the Air Canada Club with views of the ice, court or concert. Reservations are required and can be made at any of the above restaurants by calling (416) 815-5983.

Casual dining options are available at different locations throughout the ACC, including Tim Hortons, Pizza Pizza, Mr. Sub and more. 

At the adjacent Maple Leaf Square is a trendy, upscale restaurant with large patio called e11even (on the corner of Bremner and York). Next door on York is the more casual, and less expensive Real Sports Bar & Grill.

If you want to grab a hot meal, salad or quick bite that will save you time and money, downstairs in the Maple Leaf Square is a Longos (supermarket) that has a large selection of  ready-made meals . Each night from 4 pm to 10 pm they feature a chef-made special as well as a variety of other hot meal choices. There's also a large salad bar and a Starbucks with lots of seating in the store.
