1. TIFF Tips: Where to Stay
Though festival screenings occur throughout downtown Toronto, many festival-affiliated theatres are concentrated in the city’s Entertainment District, around the TIFF Bell Lightbox headquarters on King Street West. A short walk from there, the boutique SoHo Metropolitan Hotel features suites equipped with Italian linens and marble bathrooms with soaker rubs, while star chef Susur Lee’s modern Chinese restaurant Luckee is on the ground floor. A couple of blocks away, near the edge of the Entertainment District, the Hilton Garden combines amenities such as an indoor pool and room service with in-room fridges, on-site laundry and other comforts of home.
