Why it's a deal: This package breaks down to about $201 per person per night. In early July, a three-night stay at the Best Western costs about $204 per person, based on double occupancy. For about $398 more than the hotel alone, you get the three-night stay, plus a city tour, an excursion to Niagara Falls, a Maid of the Mist boat ride, a wine tasting, a lunch, an airport transfer, and all taxes and fees.
More: Several hotel upgrades are available, starting at an additional $75 per person for the Courtyard by Marriott Toronto Downtown or similar. Extend your stay at the Best Western for approximately $83 per person per night extra, based on double occupancy.
