The Westin Harbour Castle

Hotel | "Westin Harbour Castle"

First off, the hotel is the first stop from Pearson Airport using the Airport Express Bus. It's also the last stop on the bus route back to Pearson. It was about a 20- to 25-minute ride each way.

This is a great place for a foodie. Come to the market hungry. There are two floors of every type of food imaginable and plenty of tables and chairs to relax and enjoy your treasures.

On Sunday mornings, be sure to visit the flea market across the street. They have all types of stuff.

I stayed at the Westin, which is right on the HarbourFront. It's a nice place to walk around. There are some dining choices - not a lot. There are plenty of hot-dog vending carts and several tour boats to choose from. It is an easy walk to the Rogers Centre.
