Across from the Sheraton

We did not tour the inside but it is beautiful from the outside. Great spot for pictures. The lit up TORONTO sign is lovely.

Toronto City Hall is probably one of the most sights in Toronto - with reason. It's awesome by day and even cooler by night. Get your picture with the iconic "Toronto" letters and enjoy the lights. It's beautiful

A great place to take photos and see the diverse city skyline and architecture. The iconic "Toronto Sign" even has footsteps to indicate where to stand for the best photo angle.

This place seemed like some government offices which I think locals require to use. However as a tourist this was charming with the colorful Toronto signage, and the square held some artistic exhibition as well as a food market. I suspect there are other events held here during the year so look it up and enjoy. It's also very central... More

One of the top 10 places to visit if you find yourself in Toronto Canada. Makes a great place to meet, take pictures and even see the new year in with fireworks while skating on ice. Great place to be and see

this is right...I guess it would be considered the heart of Toronto - famous for out door skating in the winter and now for the TORONTO sign, it makes for a great meeting place, in front of food trucks and other famous attractions - sometimes you can even take tours of the place (I'd call and make sure though) -...

Such a modern and contemporary city. Just one of many unique buildings Toronto has to offer. Pretty both daytime and nighttime.

Its a busy square. There are scheduled Events like farmers Market "Fresh Wednesdays". Up on the roof a few stairs up there is a green flower garden. In the shadows there a some benches. The combination of old and new city hall is a good example of how the city develops. However, the wear of 50 years shows, as it... More

Wouldn't think there would be a great cafeteria on the main level of city hall, but the food was amazing and great prices! Went during the Pan American games, love the Toronto letters for photo ops and met some of the Kayak athletes!

The new city hall is located right next to the old one and makes a nice contrast since it is quite modern. The building itself looks nice, and the interiors are also interesting.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
