Royal York is a great place to stay in Toronto, as it is centrally located and within walking distance of many attractions. I have stayed there mainly because we were attending a conference in the hotel but find the rates to be expensive for what you are getting. The staff is excellent and congenial. I would probably try another hotel...

Rooms were clean and luxurious. All the staff were extremely friendly. We had a room on the 11th floor on the west side and had a great view of the CN tower. We stayed here with our 2 small children to attend an event at the rogers centre. We also visited the CN tower and the aquarium. This hotel is...

Club level room was very comfortable and nicely appointed. But typically tiny as it is such an aged and historic property. Service in the concierge lounge was typically excellent and professional. Peaceful is the best way to describe it. One very weird issue with the room though it didn't turn out to be a problem: there were no blinds or...

Dear William M, Thank you for your feedback. It is wonderful to know that overall your visit was peaceful and enjoyable. We apologize for the problem with respect to blackout curtains--the rooms have black-out roller blinds that can often be hard to spot but we will look into this further to ensure that the window treatments are complete. We hope...

I stay at the Royal York once or twice a year. I have to say my most recent stay was by far the best. They have upgraded rooms since my last stay and I really enjoyed my space this time around. They added a bunch of extra charging stations (essential!) and my room was clean and cozy. The upgraded bathroom...

The Hotel is very beautiful, clean, and quite. The staff are inviting and friendly, plus helpful. I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone that is visiting downtown Toronto. It was extremely close to Union station. I took the train right from the airport and the hotel was right across the road where I exited. It was awesome! Close to...

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.
