I expected way more from this hotel. The staff were friendly & cosmetically the hotel is pretty those are the only good things! The rooms are very small and we are a party of 3 ( with a child) and the beds are doubles. We were tripping over each other. When we asked if we could upgrade - nothing was... More

Got strongly negative impression ONLY because of one fact: they surprise me that that they would charge me additionally for the use of WiFi in my room. The cheapest Chinese hostels nowadays don't do that, even more so in Toronto. For a hotel of Faimont status, image and reputational claims to tell guests that they will be charged separately for...

Great location, luxurious amenities, responsive staff make for a memorable time in Toronto. Take the time to check out the history represented in the detailed ceiling artwork--exquisite! A terrific base for checking out a great city. First rate!

This hotel is a grand lady in Toronto with impressive location and facade. Walking through the doors it makes you feel like you have gone back 100 years in time! Check was speedy once you get to the front of the line. Fairmont King was large, spacious and well equipped but severely lacked in room wifi without paying the CAD16/17... More

I recently booked a Toronto getaway for my partner's 30th birthday celebration. There were a few restaurants we planned on going to in the core, so this was a great location! When we first checked in, we were put in a "modern room" (which I think I signed up for online based on the photo and description) however when we... More

If you want to stay in style in Toronto the royal York is the place to be. Its close to a lot of attractions and the food is really good. Rooms are spacious and clean. Try to go on the Fairmont Gold as they have better rooms and better views, they even have they're own check in desk.

Excellent three nights at the Royal York. Exceptional breakfast offerings each morning and appreciated the availability of a variety of wines and treats later in the day. The room was small as was the bathroom, but both were clean and having a corner room allowed plenty of light and views. (12-130) AC unit was a bit tricky to use and... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood 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.
