Montecassino Hotel and Suites from Pearson airport

Is this hotel easy to reach by public transport from the airport and is it easy access to downtown Toronto?

No to easy airport access by public transit. You would need to take a cab from the airport.

To get downtown from the hotel, you would take a bus from the hotel to the Wilson subway station and then subway to downtown.

Is there a reason you are staying up there? the area is mainly light industry and strip malls.

Hi,Thanks for your reply.We were going for the price rather than location and this hotel was within our budget.Can you suggest another area that would be perhaps better for transport links and we could look for hotels there.

Hi katystar55;

Toronto is Canada’s largest city, 4th largest in North America after Mexico City, New York, & Los Angeles.

It is a false economy to stay in a cheaper hotel on the outskirts of the city, as it costs time & money to commute into the downtown core, where most of the things you'll want to see & do, are located.

Not knowing your dates or budget, it's hard to make comparisons / suggestions. I would suggest that you select a few places that are within your budget and then return to the forum for assistance.

Best Regards

Early days then ... many hotels will not have prices set a year in advance. You can use engines such as trivago.ca or kayak, or sites like priceline, booking.com, hotels.com, expedia etc. Just be sure to read the T&C's closely

Check hotels such as Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Strathcona, Chelsea Eaton, etc. Use the hotels tab at top of this page as a guide. For example, Holiday Inn Bloor-Yorkville is showing a rate of $166 for November 1st/2017 right now which is a great deal for a great location.

Check under the Accommodations section on the right hand side of this page - Top Questions.

Also think about a B&B.

Unfortunately, the Holiday Inn on Bloor -- one of my standbys for visitors -- is going to be transformed into a "luxury boutique" hotel by the middle of next year:

But otherwise totally agree with phpr: there are much better options in the downtown area, and almost certainly some within your price range.

Wow ... that's a drag...

The HI Express on Lombard downtown would be a good option also.

As it stands now, after all the years I have driven by it, I have never actually seen people going in and out of that place. And it's in the middle of the construction zone on the new Downsview entrance that will be within the gates of Downsview Park. Maybe when that happens this place will be a better bet, but for now, seriously bad choice.

You have a decent rate for a hotel; lots of good suggestions above. I often use Hotels.com and Booking.com (which is owned by Priceline). This far in advance, you can also sign up for "special deal" emails from any chain you like to deal with; you may see some specials going by.

Avoid, avoid, avoid and not just due to location ... I've attended many meetings at this location and know of a couple of folks who stayed here.
