Most banks in Vancouver are open between Monday and Friday, although their opening hours are slightly shorter than regular shops and stores in Toronto. Some banks are open later or on weekends or Thursday evenings.

Ontario has a 13% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) that combines PST (Provincial Sales Tax of 8%) and GST (Goods and Services Tax of 5%). This tax is applicable to most goods, purchased gifts, food/beverages and services in Ontario.
In addition of the HST, the Westin Harbour Castle Toronto will add a Destination Marketing Program fee (DMP) of 3%.
Some hotels include tips or gratuities with group programs to simplify bookkeeping. This usually includes gratuities for housekeeping, bell service and food service. In a hotel, bell service should be tipped about $1 per bag, and housekeeping $1 to $5 dollars a day (in proportion to your room rate). Visitors should know that the standard tip in restaurants is 15%, with 20% for very outstanding service. Tip taxis about 10%, and a dollar a bag they carry for you (not just unload), or at the very least round fares up to the nearest dollar. Tipping is customary in bars, restaurants, salons/spa and taxis.
