The upscale and historic Strathcona Hotel at 60 York Street boasts 194 guest rooms, a vintage pub and the York Street Café. It’s right in the heart of one of Toronto’s most lively areas, and it’s perfect for accessing the world-renowned Toronto PATH.
What is the PATH?
Linking 50 buildings, office towers and the city’s major tourist, entertainment and business attractions, the Toronto PATH is, according to Guinness World Records, the world’s largest underground shopping complex. With 30 km (19 miles) of shopping arcades and 371,600 square metres (4 million square feet) of retail space, it houses approximately 1,200 shops and employs about 5,000 people.
How do you get to the PATH?
The best way to get onto the PATH from the Strathcona is through the west tower of the TD Centre, right across the road. Head to the lowest level and pick a direction. Check this map for other access points.
Where does the PATH go?
It’s possible to walk through the PATH from the waterfront all the way up to Dundas Street, and from east of Yonge as far west as John Street. It encompasses Toronto’s most popular tourist attractions as well as the entertainment district and the financial district.
Why stay near the PATH?
Here are just some of the PATH-connected destinations you can explore:
- The Hockey Hall of Fame is where you’ll find the Stanley Cup, a monster gift shop and lots of interactive exhibits.
- The 1,815-foot-tall CN Tower that features spectacular views, a terrifying (but optional) glass floor, a revolving restaurant and more! (Note: booking your Strathcona stay online lets you choose free gifts like 15% off admission to the CN Tower.)
- McEwan, a delectable food shop filled with hot, cold and frozen items prepared to the recipes of chef Mark McEwan’s North 44, Bymark, One and Fabbrica restaurants. There’s also a Fabbrica grab-and-go location in the TD Centre section of the PATH.
