Toronto has two airports, Billy Bishop (YTZ) and Toronto Pearson (YYZ). Billy Bishop is right by downtown so it's close to the conference venue, but only has flights from a few cities in the eastern United States and Canada. Toronto Pearson is an international airport and has flights from all over the world.
Getting to the hotel
Public Transit (TTC)
If coming from Billy Bishop, you can take the free shuttle bus to Union Station. See below for directions from Union to Hotel.

Restaurants and Local Interest
Toronto is well known for its international flavor. Some restaurant recommendations and local attractions are listed here. This list is borrowed and adapted from ICER 2019
CN Tower – The main Toronto landmark, you can get a great view of the city from their revolving restaurant or their glass floor. Afterwards, have fun at the tourist activities featured at ground level.
Kensington Market – One of Toronto’s most vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods. A great place to eat, shop or just wander around.
Eaton Centre – Over 250 high-end shops in a giant indoor mall.
Ripley’s Aquarium – Recently built, can occupy a few hours. Look for coupons online before you go.
Casa Loma – Toronto has a castle! It’s not as accessible as the other attractions, but it’s worth an Uber up if you’re into it.
In addition to local attractions, the Niagara region, which is home to Niagara Falls as well as a numerous wineries, is about 65 km from Toronto. The easiest way to visit the region is by car (1.5 hours each way from downtown Toronto), but you can also take regional transit (2 hours each way from Union Station) or look into a guided winery tour from Toronto.
