Not much to say really...it's a sprawling, relatively well divided convention centre. I've been to at least 5 events here and they were all well-run - exactly what I expected. The open areas are relatively clean, the employees are curt but polite, and the layout is mostly intuitive. Tough to find washrooms in some areas and they could be updated.... More

I have visited the Centre several times to attend conferences and other events. It is spacey and inviting. I think this is a great place for events and conferences. It has many uses and it is easy to get to. It is in the downtown area of Toronto. You do not need a car because it is TTC accessible. Parking... More

I have been going to meetings here for 20 plus years and we really enjoyed the older section which faces Front street and has windows letting in natural light but is not convenient for delivery to the smaller show floor. The front street side has easy access to multiple restaurants and bars. The new section is nicer newer and much... More

Its large conference space. Have been here many times for exams, conferences, the Baby show and the Autoshow. Nothing really exciting to say about it other than its close to the CN Tower and lots of restaurants and walking distance from Union Station.

Having a downtown convention space is a Toronto City plus. From major conventions to trade shows and exhibitions this is a useful facility. The good and bad is that it is built underground and on levels making it a functional boring space. But it does the job year after year and for conventions wanting to explore a great urban venue..you... More

With direct access to Union Station, PATH, and its close proximity to the highway its not wonder this venue is always booked for major conventions like the Auto Show and Comicon. Benn to several industry events, trade shows, and conventions here and they usually do not disappoint. Bad shows usually reflect poorly on the event organizers and their marketing engine,... More

We planned to visit the Ripley's aquarium. Metro Centre is nearby and we had plenty of time so we went to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre first (I guess we didn't want to miss it). The space is huge.Nice location in downtown. A perfect place for events such as conferences and exhibitions.

Great place to stay while in Toronto at the PDAC - within walking distance to many restaurants, indoor walking if the weather is cold - close to go trains and subways and many hotels!

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.
