The top 10 family friendly hotels in Toronto

Family friendly hotels in Toronto are where should you stay in Toronto if you're traveling with kids in tow. Ideally, you're looking for somewhere with lots of in-room space, a pool and maybe even baby-sitting if you're looking to spend a night on the town.
