These Toronto Airport Hotels Will Have You Ready For Your Morning Flight

As with any major city, Toronto can put the word "rush" into rush hour. Although the peak times used to be close to standard working hours, as the population exploded, getting from A to B at any time of day takes a little longer. When A is your hotel and B is the airport, this can be a stressful situation indeed. As laid back as you may deem yourself, missing a flight doesn't exactly bring out the best in people.

The night before an expected sojourn, take matters into your own relaxed hands by choosing one of our airport hotel picks. Staying within a few miles of Toronto Pearson Airport will allow you to be the cool and collected traveler that we know that you are. Check in online, take one of their shuttles and allow the muss to be something that you deal with at home, rather than at rest. Some choices are even in the airport itself, such as the Sheraton Gateway Hotel Toronto Airport which is located directly in Terminal 3. If you choose a stone's throw distance accommodation, it isn't going to be more complicated to catch your flight, with many choices offering exquisite luxury, such as the Hilton Toronto Airport & Suites.  

Pack your bags and arrive at your gate without any bags under your eyes. That's what we call classy business travel.


The Indigo Hotel provides a cheerful and colourful backdrop for your business traveling stay. It is a no-fuss option for the traveler who just needs to rest his or her weary head. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and the essential soundproofing is pretty good, considering the location. If you have time to do something besides praying to the sleep gods, you can enjoy the pool, fitness centre, hot tub and sauna. The park and fly deals are ideal for those taking a morning flight who don't exactly consider themselves "morning people." To help yourself along, try the Starbucks coffee in your room.

Recommended for Airport Hotels because: The Indigo Hotel is a few hundred feet from one of the runways at the Toronto airport. Bring some earplugs and revel in the convenience.
