Toronto's Entertainment District is truly a harvest of plenty when it comes to hotels. The 10 closest hotels to the Rogers Centre are all worthy choices! All (but the 2 Germain boutique hotels) have pools and all have on-site dining of some description (most have their own restaurants and lounges). The city of Toronto offers lots of other entertainment and restaurant options a short walk or cab ride away. As in most downtown hotels in the country, none of these hotels offer free parking, only 3 offer free Wi-Fi or breakfast, so that should be kept in mind when comparing prices. I picked 3 out of 10 very good hotels to highlight for qualities such as excellence, value and customer satisfaction.

Nov 15, 2014
by Nicole M., Editor
Location
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto in the Entertainment District, next door to the CN Tower, the Rogers Centre is within a 10-minute walk of many restaurants, shops and hotels.

The Rogers Centre is a popular sports and concert venue that was formerly called the SkyDome because of its dome-shaped retractable roof that allows for both indoor and outdoor events, depending on the weather.

Getting Around
The Gardiner Expressway on ramp is a 3-minute drive from the stadium and in about 7 minutes you can be at Ontario Place or the CNE grounds (Canadian National Exhibition). The CN Tower is a 5-minute walk away, while the Hockey Hall of Fame is a 20-minute walk (or 7-minute drive) away. The Harbourfront Centre is reachable in under 10 minutes on foot.

The Roy Thompson Hall, a performing arts venue, is a 13-minute walk away, and the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts is a 20-minute walk away.

Because traffic is often congested and the price of parking high in downtown Toronto, many visitors as well as locals prefer to take a taxi (which can readily be hailed on the streets of downtown Toronto).

Getting Around: Public Transit
The Rogers Centre is easily accessed via public transportation. For those taking the subway, Via Rail or the GO train or GO bus, a covered skywalk is available part of the way from Union Station to the Rogers Centre, with clearly labelled pathways. Upon exiting the skywalk, the path splits into two walkways that lead to Gates 3 & 6 of the Rogers Centre. The walk takes about 12 minutes. For more information about how to reach the Rogers Centre click here.

There are also streetcars available for nominal fares. Basic adult fares are $3 or $2 for seniors/students and .75 for children. Discounts are available for buying a few tickets at once and families can ride multiple times in a day for $10.75 on holidays and weekends.

Visitors can walk from the King streetcar by getting off at Blue Jays Way and walking south for about 6 minutes. Alternatively, one can take the streetcar south along Spadina Ave. from Spadina Station on the Bloor-Danforth subway line, get off at Bremner Boulevard, and walk the 5 minutes to the stadium. (Make sure to check the Spadina line construction updates to see if it is running.)

Parking
Rogers Centre parking is available on a limited basis underneath the stadium, but rates vary based on the event and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations can be made for disabled parking by calling 416-341-3004.

There are also a few public lots nearby on Front Street west of the Rogers Centre, but the Rogers Centre is not affiliated with them, and prices can sometimes skyrocket depending on the event.

From Quaker Steak & Lube serving up their famous bucket of wings to the Roundhouse Carvery and Bar overlooking home plate and serving up rotisserie sandwich options, there is plenty of variety. 

Muddy York Market serves up fresh and cultural options showcasing the diverse ethnic options in Toronto and the King Club Labbatt Beer-styled bar is open for those looking for a break from the excitement to grab a drink.
