Here's some additional info which I hope may be helpful as well. I live about an hour away from Toronto and travel there quite frequently for business and pleasure. If you require parking in the downtown core, the best and cheapest place I've found is a city garage located at the Esplanade, behind the Novotel - downtown hotel. Rates there are $9 per day and it's covered and secure. This is a great location if you're attending a hockey game, and is a short walk to baseball and the theatre district. Plenty of restaurants on the Esplanade as well. Another option I use for personal visits to Toronto where I'm staying overnight downtown for a day or two, or if I just want to save myself the stress and congestion of the downtown traffic, is to park at the end of the line of the TTC subway line and take the subway into downtown. Cost is $3 per person ($2.50 with volume purchase) to ride the subway and parking at most subway stations near the end of the lines is free after 3 pm on weekdays and all weekends. I can understand the subway can be a little intimidating, but do your research of stops and transfer stations and it's really quite easy and safe to navigate/use. Hope this helps!
