My first hand experience is limited, so take that into consideration with this review. The spa is conveniently located, lovely interior, attentive staff. Both of us were happy with our pedicures, and will most likely be back.

Elmwood Spa is perhaps the most overhyped spa in Toronto. It always makes it to Top 10 lists but I've never been able to figure out why. The waters area have a very YMCA/gym feel. It doesn't have that zen vibe of a spa at...More
