Novotel Toronto Centre is an ideal location to stay at when checking out everything Downtown Toronto has to offer, including the iconic CN Tower. If you’re staying at the Novotel Toronto Centre during your next trip to Toronto, here are a few ways to get to the CN Tower from the hotel!

On Foot

Walking distance from Novotel (20 minutes)

From the front door of the hotel, turn left and stroll up the esplanade until you hit Yonge Street. Once you get to that intersection, turn right and walk north up Yonge street. You’ll pass Meridian Hall on your right! When you get to the intersection of Yonge and Front Street, turn left onto Front Street and keep going. You’re almost there when you see Union Station! A block past Union Station, turn left on Lower Simcoe street, check out the underpass murals, and follow the signs to the CN Tower past the Woodpecker column.

Through The PATH

Walking distance from Novotel (17 minutes)

The PATH is the perfect option for chilly or rainy days. Your route starts out the same, heading left out the door and walking up The Esplanade. Turn right on Yonge, and left on Front. Then, you’ll want to turn left on Bay Street – and head to the PATH Union-VIA-GO entrance. It’ll take you right through Union Station. Keep following the PATH and look for signs for The PATH – Skywalk. It’ll take you straight to the CN Tower!

By Car

Driving distance from Novotel (10 minutes)

If you’ve got your own vehicle, you may just want to drive to the CN Tower! Our favourite parkade once you get there is the Metro Convention Centre South Parkade. Head west on The Esplanade, then turn left on Yonge Street. Then, turn right on to Lake Shore Boulevard (you’ll be under the Gardiner Expressway). Turn right onto Lower Simcoe street, then it’s a left into the parking area.
