Getting Around: Walking
The Hilton Toronto is connected to the PATH system, meaning you can walk to the CN Tower without stepping outside (for the most part). However, the PATH system can be a bit of maze and it is easy to get lost in, even for locals. Walking outside is probably easier and heading south along Simcoe Street will take about 15 minutes on foot.
Location
This hotel is about 1 km away from the CN Tower, so if you are not prepared to make the 15-minute walk a TTC ride will cost $3 while a cab ride will obviously be more.

Tips For Staying Near CN Tower

Location
Located in what many would call the heart of the city, hotels in this area are relatively near a variety of shopping, dining and entertainment choices. However, it’s important to note the area directly surrounding the CN Tower is mainly corporate offices and high-rise residential condos without much street-level retail shopping.

Shopping
