Follow the signs for the UP Union Pearson Express station located in Terminal 1 (if you're arriving in Terminal 3 there's a Link Train service that connects Terminals 3 and 1). Take the UP Express to Union Station, it's $12 one-way ($24 return). At Union Station follow the signs for the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) subway station. Parts of Union Station are currently under renovation so finding your way around can be a bit tricky. At the subway station take the Yonge-University Line towards Finch. This is the only subway line operating from Union Station so the only thing you have to worry about is making sure you're going in the right direction, towards Finch. The subway fare is $3.25. Get off at Bloor-Yonge Station. Exit the station onto Bloor Street. The hotel is just outside the subway station, at 90 Bloor Street East.
Follow the signs for public transport (or ground transportation). Find the TTC 192 Airport Rocket stop. In Terminal 1 this is located at Ground Level, second curb, Column R4 and at Terminal 3 it's located at Arrivals Level, third curb, Column C12 (see the map at the bottom of this page). The fare is $3.25 and the drivers only take coins, no notes or cards (tokens can be purchased in the terminal). Take the bus all the way to it's last stop, Kipling subway station. Board the subway (there is only one line and it only goes in one direction from this station). Take the subway to Bloor-Yonge station. Exit the station onto Bloor Street. The hotel is just outside the subway station, at 90 Bloor Street East.
