The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto is a mere five-minute drive — or 10-minute walk — from Union Station, the city’s main train station with service to destinations across Canada and connections to the United States. Some sample round-trip fares include Montreal or Ottawa from $138, Niagara Falls from $40 or New York City — a 13-hour journey, mind you — from $220, via a connection to Amtrak.
If you’re visiting family or going to meetings in nearby suburbs such as Mississauga, Oakville or Scarborough, the GO train from Union Station is a convenient alternative to driving, especially during rush hours.
Union Station also connects to the Yonge-University subway line, providing easy access to Toronto. The closest subway station to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is St. Andrew station at King Street and University Avenue, one stop west of Union. Public transportation in Toronto, called the TTC, costs $3 per ride or $10 for a day pass.
