Toronto is a pretty typical large city, although many have commented on how safe the city is compared to large cities in the U.S.
However like any large city, Toronto does have crime problems, but if you stay near the tourist areas, you won't have any troubles. If you want to go exploring, ask the hotel staff what areas to avoid.
The downtown area is generally bright and quite safe at night.
For health concerns, travellers usually won't be far from a pharmacy. Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall are two of the major chains; the closest 24-hour pharmacy to downtown hotels is the Shoppers Drug Mart at 700 Bay Street (at Gerrard). Downtown Toronto also has many major hospitals. Travellers from outside Canada are not covered by government health plans and should have travel medical insurance for their trip.
