Arriving here from the airport was a snap. I had a well appointed room with a very comfortable mattress. I had access to the breakfast buffet and afternoon tea meal. This is a historic and very spacious hotel. I was a commuter and I liked that I was able to get anywhere in Toronto quickly. I would stay here again....

There was great anticipation from the staff regarding my stay. I was there for the Grey Cup and to spend some time with someone who is very special to me. The staff were accordingly polite and distant. It was perfect. The location and the hotel itself couldn't be better.

My husband and I stayed at the Royal York for Grey Cup weekend at the end of November 2016. The room was beautiful. Spacious enough to host guests before our cabaret events in the evening, and very warm and luxurious amenities. The only thing that was not perfect with this hotel room is the size of the bathroom. It was...

The hotel is an old hotel with a lovely very busy very noisy lobby. The rooms are fine the bathrooms are tiny. It is a crazy busy hotel this time of year with Christmas parties and lots of crowds headed to the various parties that have been booked in the hotel. On the whole the hotel staff is very nice...

Was decorated wonderfully for the season. Love the location of hotel but did not have a nice location of room as it was.pretty much facing the other wall. We could hear everything going on in the room next door as my son explained "mum...they are doing it!!" Quite uncomfortable to say the least! So needless to say not much privacy...

I stayed in a renovated room, 8181. When I entered the room, it was very cold. I called maintenance staff, who measured air at 43 deg F (5-6 degC) coming out of the heating ducts, although the thermostat was set at 20 degC when I entered the room. Maintenance Staff employed a "workaround" to raise the temperature - they raised...

The Royal York is one of the great old Canadian Pacific Railway hotels and has been a fixture of downtown Toronto for a century. It is still resplendent with a massive lobby, numerous restaurants, every service imaginable, and excellent, friendly service. I have stayed here many times and never been disappointed. The rooms are of their era and relatively small,...

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
