The following accommodation lists are provided for families to easily find places to stay overnight close to the hospital. There are two lists; one has short term accommodation options (Hotels) and the other has longer term accommodation options (furnished apartments). Most of the hotels on the list do provide patient rates, so please bring proof of appointment with you in order for them to honor those rates.
To find out exact pricing, and to book a reservation, please contact the hotel directly.
*Please note; these are limited lists and there are many other options throughout Toronto. Listed hotels were chosen due to proximity to hospital and discounts provided to families at SickKids.
