The Fairmont Royal York is right in the hub of Toronto. You can walk anywhere outside or use the underground Path, take the transit, subway so easy to get where you need to go. Hotel prices are fair. It is just a very beautiful hotel to stay in.

The title is borrowed from a good book by someone who actually lived in the Royal York. Worth picking up if you stay here. The level of service from the staff is impeccable. We live in Toronto and this stay was just a quick break in our routine. I would suggest that you take the time to just wander around...

This historic hotel is in a perfect location across from Union Station. Many major sites are within walking distance, even in winter. I took the 20 minute UP train from the airport and checking in was seamless. This hotel would be a great place to stay for a hassle-free weekend getaway. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. The standard...

Signature King room newly remodeled looked very nice at first. I noticed that our room was infested with fruit flies for the three nights we were there and the new remodel has not addressed the ever running sound of water draining in the shower room making it very annoying at night to get some sleep. Parking also requires some skillful...

Bed was not comfortable, pillows had no stuffing to them, and could hear people in the hall very clearly until early in the morning. Aesthetics ate nice, but likely wouldn't stay here again. I guess in an older hotel it is to be expected that sound will travel more.

I love Fairmont hotels. They are a magnificent piece of history. Each one is heaped with history and grandeur of days gone by. Make sure if you stay here you get a renovated room.

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.
