hmm. this place is pretty close to the conf area, and hence also
Silverstone Drive (the place where I am considering to stay) :/

With downtown, you mean the York/Yonge/financial district area?

I seem to have underestimated a bit the magnitude of Toronto.
From conf area to downtown is about 25-30 km, so it will
be better if try to avoid going back forth every day.

I think I'll do the Silverstone drive B&B around the
conf, and for the non-conf days I'll find something else downtown,
