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.

The Rogers Centre is easy to access and find for locals and tourists alike. It's easy to walk to if you're visiting the downtown area of Toronto for brunch, coming from shopping at the Eaton Centre, or staying at one of the many downtown hotels. It's also well located near to the highway for those driving in, only a 2-minute drive from the Gardiner Expressway ramp.
