I have visited the Roy Thompson Hall each year for the Toronto International Film Festival and enjoy it each time. The venue is unique and the seats are all quite good regardless if you are on the balcony or not. The only issue would be for those that are not a fan of heights. Seats at the top are pretty...

I attended a TIFF movie screening here - what a stunning venue! The building is very interesting, with lots of windows and natural light. Inside the theatre, the seats are very comfortable and spacious. We sat a few rows back from the front, and had a great view. Well worth the visit if there is a concert or show you're... More

Been here many times over the tears. RTH is not just for classical music either. Very comfortable seats, organized and clean.

I brought the Kids here for a Family Performance of Peter and the Wolf last May. I was concerned that we would be sitting too far to enjoy the concert. The acoustics were excellent as was the view. My Kids loved the performance which was a mixture of some of the TSO musicians taking on some of the characters in... More

A fabulous venue to enjoy a very enigmatic speaker. Every seat affords the perfect view and the sound is perfect. Deepak is an incredible facilitator and he outdid himself tonight. I enjoyed the review of his book Super Genes and his ability to speak to the evolution of thoughts. I met a lovely individual also there on there own and... More

I'd seen photos of this unusual looking building, an upturned black pudding basin covered in netting is an accurate if rather unflattering description. It was near my hotel so I went to find it on Simcoe St at King by St Andrews Church. The building was open so I went to peek just inside. There was a mini tidal wave... More

In this incredible Hall, I have experienced profound emotions because of superior acoustics, and it doesn't matter where you sit. It is a beautifully designed venue in every way, and I always look forward with great anticipation to my next performance!

This is an exceptional venue for different programs. I have been here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The layout is easy to negotiate and the acoustics superb. The view of the stage is panaromic. A must see for music lovers.

We watched Tony Bennett set his Microphone down and walk to the front of the stage in a packed auditorium April 2015 and talk. You could have heard a pin drop. Then he sang, without a microphone. Wow.Thanks Roy Thomson Hall.

Abida Parveen This singer of sufi music gave a spell binding sold out performance at the well known Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto, produced jointly with the Aga Khan Museum. I've known Enya and Enigma to produce music that has healing effects. This world renowned singer does a little more for me. To quote the eloquent head of Performing Arts,... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
