Tipping at Restaurants
The tip is not included on the bill in most restaurants in Toronto. It is usual to tip about 15% of the total bill but if you experience great service, you may want to impress with 20%.
It is common practice to tip 15% in Toronto (including taxi drivers).
Weather in Toronto
The weather in Toronto is quite hot and humid in the summer but can get quite cold in the winter. Please call ahead for weather information and pack accordingly. To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit multiply the Celsius by two and add thirty-one.
DID YOU KNOW ?
Now primarily a city park, it was once the home of 10,000 residents. The main avenue, now a garden and pond display, was once the busy centre of town with hotels, shops and a church.
Completed in 1976, it is still the tallest tower in the world. This mordern wonder of the world sees 2 million visitors each year. The glass floor is a must do but not for the weak. Plan to dine at the fine dining restaurant 360 which gives you a complimentary ride up!
Festivals and Events
It is hard to visit Toronto and not discover a special event or festival on any given weekend. Please see the Concierge for details or call ahead for some ideas.
To sightsee in weatherproof comfort. The PATH is Toronto's underground walkway linking 27 kilometres (16 miles) of shopping, services and entertainment.
WHAT TO PACK
A Light Sweater or Wrap
Most of Toronto's buildings are well heated in the winter and well air-conditioned in the summer. Bring a light sweater or shawl with you to take to the theatre or restaurants.
Don't forget your camera, there will be a lot of snapping going on.
It is recommended that you exchange at least some money - just enough to cover airport incidentals and transportation to the hotel - before you leave home, so you can avoid the queues at the airport ATMs.
Comfortable Walking Shoes
The best way to see our beautiful city is by walking. Make sure you pack a comfortable pair of shoes.
Do not limit your wardrobe to only jeans as several night spots and restaurants have a 'no jeans' dress code policy.
