Massey College Summer Rentals
Ranked #44 of 119 Specialty Lodging in Toronto
Reviewed August 27, 2009

A great town with a wide range of shops, restaurants, hotels, museums and other tourist attractions.
I would personally recommend the hop on hop off bus tour of downtown. A 2 day valid bus ticket allows you to board and hop off at any of the stops along the route. The bus tour itself lasts for approximnately an hour and a half (the complete loop) taking in all the major attractions of downtown including Casa Loma, the CN Tower and the Royal Ontario Museum.
I stayed at Massey College, University of Toronto during my weeks' stay in Toronto. As it was in August there is a summer rentals programme where you can hire a single or double room for the duration of your stay. Much cheaper than many of the hotels and B&Bs. Massey, being central is very close to the downtown atttractions, particularly the Royal Ontario Museum.
A day trip to Niagara Falls is definately recommended, particularly if you are staying in Toronto. The Niagara Freedom Tour which costs approximately £64 includes after stopping for lunch a ride on the Maid of the Mist Boat which takes you right up close to the falls- prepare to get wet. Ponchos are provided and the wine tasting at Niagara Village. A helicopter trip, not included in the freedom tour is also extremely popular. The tour is on a Greyhound bus (operated by Gray Line) leaves around 10am from the bus station at the intersection of Bay Street and Dundas Street and returns around 7.30 pm.

An oasis of beauty and care , with just the restful qualities which enhance one's visit to a dynamic town, just beyond its gates in the heart of midtown. In every way , from thoughtful staff to delightful food and a quiet quadrangle with lily pond ,fountains ,and benches for contemplation under magnificent towering trees amidst carefully nurtured flowers, this was outstanding! Privacy with geniality made my stay an idyll midst a busy life. Buchanan

Larger rooms than most hotels! Easy access to subway. Beautiful courtyard. For this price, there is not a safer or cleaner place to stay!
