    As an Attack fan potentially visiting Toronto for a rematch, what are the good places to stay in Toronto that are reasonably close (walking distance or short taxi ride) and that aren't going to kill my wallet?

    RADISSON PLAZA HOTEL ADMIRAL
    249 QUEENS QUAY WEST
    TORONTO, M5J 2N5
    TORONTO/DOWNTOWN
    The Radisson Plaza Hotel is a first class hotel, located in downtown Toronto, 30 kilometers from Toronto Pearson International. The hotel boasts beautifully appointed guest rooms that feature all amenities that the discerning traveler has come to expect from hotels of today.
    $109.95 CAD for 2 adults. It's approximately a 10 minutes walk to the ACC.

    The Hotel at SkyDome is $139.95 CAD for 2 adults/night, same distance as the Radisson.

    If you want to stay up my Maple Leaf Gardens and take the Subway to the ACC, you can stay at the Days Inn-Downtown for about $79.95 and ride the TTC southbound to Union on the Yonge side for about $2.25/adult...

    Thanks!

    That Radisson sounds like a great choice...and $109CDN is about $72US, so that sounds great!

    If you want to go upscale, there's always the Royal York hotel, just across the street from Union station, but that's around $209-$299 CAD / night...good for treatin' your significant other to a nice night of romance or what have you. :D

    Just be sure to call ahead and make sure that the hotel workers aren't on strike...and no, I'm not kidding...:eek:

    Thanks again...

    That is what we'd like to do in fact. I've always wanted to go to TOR, but never got the chance. My wife and I love MON and seeing ALB @ MON gave us an excuse to go there, see the game, and get romantic... TOR or OTT would be my next stops, especially now that MON is out of the picture....

    Allow me to throw my vote in for the Westin Harbour Castle... a very nice place, and sometimes they even have a NLL rate.

    you are correct

    call the harbour castle at 416-869-1600 and tell them

    you want the ROCK RATE it is a special deal for room prices

    for people going to rock home games at the acc.

    I can attest to the Westin Harbour. One excellent place to spend a weekend. Great service, food and facilities. My family and I had an excellent stay there for championship weekend in 2001 and plan on making it back there in the very near future. The staff even helped us line up tickets and directions to some of the attractions in the city. All-in-all, a five-star stay had by all!!!

    IF YOU'RE REALLY ON A LOW BUDGET.........

    The City Of Toronto has numerous park benches and TTC shelters that would prove ample accomodation. :rotfl:

    You can probably sleep in the subway, even.

    When I was visiting my exotic dancer girlfriend, I stayed at these two places:

    Quality Hotel Downtown (Lombard & Jarvis) - not bad, pretty reasonable, close to the ACC

    Quality Suites Airport - really great room, 5 min from downtown, reasonable rate. This would be my pick.

    My recommendation would be the Westin Harbour as well.
    Great place within walking distance, and if you get the NLL rate like we did when we were up there it's really not expensive. We also had lots of player sightings too, which is always a plus.
    If you have kids they'll love it there. They have lots of stuff geared toward them including a story line that they can call up and have a story read to them. I noticed that on the phone that's next to the toilet. Don't ask me why they have one there, but.. it's there.

    > Don't ask me why they have one there, but.. it's there.

    Have what? A story line for the kids, or a phone next to the toilet?

    Who knows what sick mind thought of the other one [ :) ], but many hotels put phones in the bathroom so that doing one's business doesn't delay being able to do business.

    Lol RA.
    The phone next to the toilet.
    I'm sorry, but I really don't want to talk to someone while I'm on the toilet and I REALLY wouldn't want to talk to someone while they're there either.

    BTW, anyone notice a street with my name on it? I think it would make a great gift for me one day...hint, hint to our American friends if they're ever up in our neck of the woods again! :D
