Spending the night at the airport
Toronto airport operates with numerous flights and connections around the globe, so it is frequent to see many passengers inside the enclosure at night, waiting for their flight departure. Because of the crowd, it is recommended to have earplugs or headphones, and blankets or a sleeping bag for the cold.
Where to rest: There are several seats with no armrests throughout the enclosure, especially on the Departures level of Terminal 1. Another option (by paying or with a credit card providing the service) is to access one of the VIP lounges, where you will find more amenities. None is open at night, though. For a longer rest, you can check into the hotel directly connected to Terminal 3.
Baggage: The airport's left-luggage service only operates from 5:00 am to 1:00 am.
Eating and drinking: There are several options that remain open throughout the night.
Restrooms: Showers inside the VIP lounges and the gym.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, convenience stores, pharmacies, baby changing facilities, children's playgrounds.
