Cant help you with the hockey part but as for hotels-for your needs I would reccomend the Sheraton or Hilton as both have pools and are centrally located, The Westin is in a nice area in the harbour front but has a liitle less around it...You could also look at the Suites at one king west which has some great summer rates-Just a reminder the July 1st is Canada day so there will be alot going on-ie so book now

Would recommend the Sheraton. Having recently spent 8 glorious nights their , with its central location and amenties I think it would be ideal.

I'd recommend Delta Chelsea, Cambridge Suites, Hilton, and Sheraton. Delta has an indoor waterslide. Don't sweat the mixed reviews.

Your one point is

>>>also i need to know the best way to go to Niagra from Toronto one way

we plan to go to the falls for three nights and fly out of Buffolo<<<

I'd recommend pricing one-way car rentals. For public transport, there's www.viarail.ca and www.greyhound.ca

If you want an amazing hotel near all the activities you mentioned I would recommend the Hotel Le Germain. It is the third rated hotel on this travel site. I have stayed there countless times and it has never disappointed. It is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. I have stayed at most of the hotels you mentioned and with all due respect in my opinion they do not compare to the Germain Hotel.

Hopes this helps a little and best of luck.

Sheraton is a great hotel with a nice big pool great shopping near by, newly renovated rooms and lobby. Germain is nice but not cheap and it's not much of a family hotel.

To ease your mind a little, some hotels have designated pet rooms. I don't think you'd be sleeping in a bed that the pet did.

Somewhere that you can take your son that he would enjoy, (and so would you) is the Olympic Spirit. Lots of activites there all having to do with the Olympics. Have fun.
