Easy to confuse: Two buildings - South building has reversed floor numbering

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.

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.

Great space for hosting a huge event! I was part of a huge corporate event and this space accommodated it! I didn't hear anyone complaining so there must have been a lot of happy event-goers. It is divided into a north and south area by an overhead walk-way so that is the only part that isn't perfect.

Attended Microsoft WPC 2016 here for 4 days. The convention center is huge and has many rooms for dedicated sessions. Microsoft also did an excellent job at event management. Would highly recommend this for business meetings and conferences.

The convention centre itself is fine, with reasonably close parking. The food is outrageously expensive, and of poor quality. They really need to fix this.

This yearly event is huge and very successful! When I first starting going with my wife, I was very reluctant! After all, it is a Woman's Show...the few guys I passed, we all high fived each other! An enormous venue for woman and families from the top of your head to the tip of their toes. I managed to eat... More

HUGE! I mean HUGE! Our convention was held here and it was a tremendous amount of walking for some of the attendees. They could probably accommodate the entire population of Toronto in an emergency. Staff was indiscreet, but helpful.

Attended a conference here about a month ago. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is very spacious and uber-clean. It's the largest convention and meeting facility the city has to offer. It has small meeting rooms and large convention halls for much more grandiose events. It is comprised of a north building (the older section) and a south building (the newer... More

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.
