At a convention, all they offered was pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs and sushi packs. Hot dogs were $7.50. A very unsophisticated menu for a very sophisticated group of convention goers. Food was really only fair. Sushi wasn't really fresh. Not enough food vendors for the...More

No wonder Toronto gets so many conventions! This is an excellent facility for easily handling and moving large groups of people. It was very clean and well maintained too. The only negative is the poor quality of on-site food vendors.

The Metro Convention Centre was great, centrally located downtown and walking distance to the major attractions like CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, Rogers Stadium etc. A choice of restaurants to choose and the whole area is live with tourists.
