Toronto Hotels - Cheap Toronto Hotels, Toronto Short Term Rentals, Toronto Hotel Deals, Toronto Motels
In terms of accommodation, you can choose between top-notch hotels, cheap stays, B&Bs, guesthouses, and a variety of other options. Keep in mind that the rates may fluctuate considerably from day to day, and many hotels charge double and even triple their off-peak rates on major holidays and during the summer. Some guesthouses, hostels, and B&Bs do not charge tax, but the hotels will. If you are staying at a hostel, expect to pay between $20 and $25 for dormitory bed. Read hostel reviews though, as some hostels overstuff their corridors with beds when packed up.
