The Hilton Toronto is walking distance to the Festival Village and is near the subway to get you around to the various movie theaters. Alternatively, the Park Hyatt Toronto, located in Yorkville is a great place indulgewhile seeing movies prior to release on the big screen. If you have time between screenings, take in some of the sites and explore museums and galleries like the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum or the CN Tour.
