The Roy Thomson Hall is a great contemporary addition to Toronto. The hall itself is massive and very comfortable. I have watched TIFF movies here and also attended a graduation ceremony, and I can safely say that no matter where you sit, the acoustics are perfect. The place is easily accessed by public transit and has a very interesting architectural... More

Just about a week ago, I performed there. It is a amazing place to perform, But the staff doesn't want to help you. The price their is a little bit weird, just some coffee and Tea for the morning cost $300 CAD, and vending machines only accept coins. Overall, a great facility but improvements could be made.

In the last few months I've had the pleasure of attending some of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra's magic in ways I've never dreamed of. At Halloween I recall Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO on the big screen & seamlessly accompanied by Toronto's finest musicians. This past weekend, we treated ourselves to a younger sentiment & were drawn to the wonder of combining... More

RTH is a beautiful concert hall located near shopping, theatres,& trendy restaurants. Easily accessible by public transit, or there are several paid underground parking spots all around there. If you are coming to visit Toronto try to check out a concert or the Symphony. Also wheelchair accessible!

What an incredible venue. It is an acoustically remarkable hall. Seeing Raffi there recently with our grandson was a real treat. It was a pretty packed house and everyone was smiling having a great time and singing along to so many catchy tunes.

With its round, sloping "bell-shaped" glass canopy, Roy Thomson Hall, located on King Street in the Theater District, is a Toronto landmark. (I am surprised, however, that the main entrance is as unimposing as it is.) The building seems as fresh as when it was first built. Home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Roy Thomson Hall offers up a wide... More

Went during TIFF! Been here previously and have had a great experience all the time! The sound quality is outstanding and the size is large. Watching a movie here was amazing!

This s supposed to be Toronto's premier concert hall and the acoustics are very poor. We attended a concert with Rene Fleming and hardly heard a word. We never to return.

I've attended Roy Thomson on several occasions but, this last time, I went with my wife who was on crutches. At the main entrance, when my wife asked about the existence of an elevator, the usher replied in the negative and steered her towards the escalators. This was a scary experience for someone with poor balance. We missed the first... More

We have attended events at the Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto many times including the Toronto International Film Festival - TIFF.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
