Centrally located in downtown. next to the Rogers Centre and the CN Tower are really two of the best reasons that the MTCC is a great spot. You get to see the special interest you have at the centre and be steps away form great events, sports, dining and tourist meccas!

The convention centre is awkwardly designed. Many rooms have pillars that obscure the sight-lines. The decor is, particularly in the south building. It is a huge space connected to Union Station, but not actually the underground Path Network. It's quite a walk to Union station and the subway, though you can take a street car.

Huge convention center. There's north and south buildings, and I've attended events here and vendored myself. Its not the easiest to navigate, much like buildings of its era ( ie ROM/crystal), AGO, but it is accessible.

The best of Toronto sights, lovely meals and enjoyment activities for the kids. A definite must visit when in Downtown Toronto. Nightlife is also superb.

Obviously an architectural challenge to build over a railway track, incorporate a hotel, and have three pedestrian overpasses. And equally an obvious architectural success with a large light tunnel bringing natural light into the lowest level. Bring a compass the first time. This is a mobility friendly building and close to all forms of transit. Very well done actually.

This convention center is so massive and sterile that it feels empty despite having thousand of peoples around. You can walk 30 min just to get out and grab a bite and get back in which is a problem since you usually don't have that time in conventions.

y review is solely based on the one item I ordered which was their takoyaki balls. When I was much younger I had takoyaki at FMP and it was really nice and crisp, I have ordered them plenty of times elsewhere and was never able to find any that were cooked well throughout plus they all have the exact same...

Massive convention centre but well organised - even a little chilly air con which was a tad cold but managed to ignore that. Well sign posted, good facilities although massively busy created blockages on escalators suggest stair options would be helpful

It is one of the huge convention centre in Toronto. It's truly perfect for any tradeshow of any size. Over priced food but great convention centre.

Once you realize that higher number floors are below lower numbered floors, this is an easy place to navigate. It's big and within walking distance of a lot of downtown Toronto.

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.
