Toronto has its own version of Times Square, and hotels near Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto put you in the heart of it all.
An Acre of Pure Toronto
Conceived in 1997 as part of a plan to revitalize intersection of Yonge and Dundas Street in Downtown Toronto, the YD Square was the culmination of architectural dreams and know how supported by the public-private partnership of local interest and business associations. It was developed by Brown + Storey Architects to model Times Square in New York, Tokyo’s Shibuya District, and Piccadilly Square in London. From the moment you step foot in the midst of its towering billboards, you’ll wonder if perhaps it’s done more than even that. Tilted ever so slightly to represent a theater-like atmosphere, you will feel like you are on stage walking among the shops and businesses, all teeming with the foot traffic of over 56 million people annually. Become one of that crowd when you book a room with any of the hotels near Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto and discover that the lights, action, and excitement are just the first sensory experience waiting for you.
An Event Every Day of the Week
That’s no exaggeration. Once you’re settled into your room at one of the hotels near the Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, step back outside because there is always something going on in the Square. This isn’t just a matter of a great meeting of like-minded people in an open area, this is an always in motion, indoor and outdoor event center. There is literally something scheduled for every day of the week and almost all of it is free. That means you’ll be right next door to free music, free movies, and free events every day and all taking place under the sun or lights in the middle of the square.
To top it all off, just to add one more freebie to the list, free wireless Internet is extended through the YD. Connect with anyone while you get out and enjoy the YD Square. And just in case that sun lighting up your free outdoor concert is warming you up too much, there are two rows of fountains and though they are nice to look at, every one of them is built for more than just looking at. Each one was developed for water play, including a filtration system that keeps the water clean and safe. You read that right. You can actually run, splash, and drink from the gorgeous fountains in the middle of this bustling modern square, all while still listening to free live bands or after coming back from a great free movie.
