Over the years, I've spent a lot of time here and watched several businesses come and go but now it seems to have settled nicely into a very good shopping complex. Several restaurants and cafes, an Indigo, LCBO, the fabulous Ron White shoe store, Ashley's, Birks, a movie theatre etc. The subway makes getting here easy. Overall, quite a classy... More

As a Manulife retiree we are able to use the guest suites at 44 Charles. The location - couldn't be better and the exceptional service from Dean and his crew make this the ideal spot when visiting Toronto. The rooms are functional, spacious and come with all the required amenities. We stayed in room 208 this trip but over the... More

We moved into the Manulife apartments in 2013 and re-discovered the breathtaking quality and range of shopping experiences throughout the concourse areas down below. There are really too many to list, so a visit to the Manulife Centre website is the only place to go. Everything from books to booze, from shoe repair and dry cleaners to restaurants and arguably...

Whatever you want, The Manulife Centre has it. It's a great place to spend a not-so-nice day in the heart of the city. Ashley's is a fabulous china & giftware store. Just walking around the store is fun & you never know what little treasure you'll find there. If you're in town for a wedding, the couple are probably "registered"... More

The Manulife Centre has a wide variety of shopping from a large liquor-wine-beer store to a supermarket to a huge book store, a cinema and high hend retail shops. Best is that if the weather is bad, you cdon't have to go outside if you are staying at the Marriott Bloor Yorkville as It is accessible under ground.

You need to have a connection to stay in the building. Hands down, the best location in the city. I've stayed there twice, never had a problem with noise, pets etc.. The beds are heavenly, the price can't be beat.

met friends for dinner at the Bloor Street Diner in the Manulife Centre. Try to make it if you can. Good food, fun atmosphere, upbeat crowd. Worth the trip and/or wait!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
