Well-liked downtown Toronto hotel with comfortable rooms, dining, indoor and outdoor pools
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).

This hotel is about 1 km away from the CN Tower, so if you are not prepared to make the 16-minute walk a TTC ride will cost $3.50 while a cab ride will cost $8 at the current (2016) rates.
  • The hotel's staff were complimented for their professional and attentive service
  • Several travellers enjoyed their clean and spacious rooms
  • Many guests praised the hotel's central location close to all downtown amenities
  • Several guests enjoyed meals prepared by the hotel

Tips For Staying Near CN Tower

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.
Getting Around: Public Transit
Hotels near the CN Tower will be close to many public transit routes and Toronto’s Union Station, which is a hub for the TTC, VIA Rail and GO Transit.
Getting Around: Walking
The area around the CN Tower is within walking distance of some of Toronto’s most popular attractions. Visitors will be a short walk to the Rogers Centre, Ripley's Aquarium and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Toronto's harbourfront area is also in walking distance.
If mall shopping or street-level retail is what you’re after then it would be best to check out the Eaton Centre (just over a 20-minute walk from the CN Tower) or the area of Yorkville (about a 20-minute transit ride north of the CN Tower).
Some might consider the area directly surrounding the CN Tower a tourist trap, meaning food can be relatively expensive and consist mainly of large chain establishments. A variety of other dining options can be found within a 10 to 15-minute walk northwest of the CN Tower, in the area of King West.

Those looking for even more dining options may want to check out the area known as the Danforth, which is roughly 15 to 20 minutes northeast by car from the CN Tower. There are also many up and coming restaurants around the intersection of Ossington Avenue and Dundas Street West. This area can be reached in about 25 minutes via public transit.

If you plan to visit the CN Tower you can save money on admission and go up for free if you make a dinner reservation at the 360 Restaurant (this restaurant rotates and provides some of the best views of Toronto).
