Tips For Staying Near Rogers Centre

The Rogers Centre is a popular sports and concert venue, formerly called the SkyDome due to its special dome-shaped retractable roof, that allows visitors to enjoy events under the stars and sunny skies in fine weather.

It is located in downtown Toronto, at the heart of the Entertainment District, near the CN Tower, Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Ripley's Aquarium. It is literally surrounded with restaurants, shops and hotels in every direction.
Getting Around
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.

Staying in a hotel near to the Rogers Centre is a great choice because the Rogers Centre is close to a lot of venues and attractions. Guests wanting to take in a concert at Ontario Place on the waterfront will find it only a short drive away. The Exhibition Stadium (soccer and rugby events) as well as the Canadian National Exhibition grounds are about a 6-minute drive. 

The popular Hockey Hall of Fame, on famous Yonge Street, is in walking distance of the Rogers Centre. The Harbourfront Centre and the Air Canada Centre are also reachable 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 less than a 20-minute walk away. 
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. The Rogers Centre website provides detailed information about how to reach the Rogers Centre.

There are also streetcars available for nominal fares. Basic adult fares are $3, seniors fares (65+) are $2, students (ages 13-19) are $2 and the ride is free for children under 12 years. Discounts are available for buying a few tickets at once. 

Visitors can walk south for 6 minutes to the Rogers Centre from the King streetcar by getting off at Blue Jays Way. 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 3 minutes to the stadium.
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. If staying in the Greater Toronto Area, taking public transit is recommended to get to the Rogers Centre during an event.

If you're driving, the Toronto Parking Finder is a great tool for seeing the parking lots and fares available in downtown Toronto.
