I've been staying at this hotel 10-12 times a year, making it pretty much my home base in Toronto. Lately I find that service seems to be slipping, and while overall it is still decent, I certainly don't get the sense that my business is appreciated. As a result, I am beginning to shift some of my stays to other... More

Enjoyed our several stays when we were inside the hotel. Great access to city underground. Street level is horrible...four years worth of construction...and still going. It's really to bad. Awesome access to train station...no need to bring a car.

Yes we had our dog with us and they have a very strict dog policy, but the room we had was really old and the carpets had a certain patina. The location is very nice and the view stunning. For people traveling with style.

This hotel is good and is in the heart of Toronto,clean rooms,well furnished and with very comfortable large beds,plenty of good and comparatively inexpensive eating places nearby. At the moment due to a new rail station being built outside the hotel (September 2014)it is very difficult to get to with a car and the parking is very expensive, but should... More

We stayed 3 nights here back in early September. There are better hotels in the area for the same or lesser price. Even with the companies corporate rate we weren't impressed. Our room was on the smaller (corporate rate) side. Service was excellent though. You should never spend a cent at the hotel... egregious prices, although like all GM's will... More

I decided to splurge on my trip and stay at the Fairmont. First, this is a great location. You are close to the subway, union station, hockey arena, Hockey Hall of Fame, Yonge Street, CN Tower, etc. I signed up for their President's Club before making my booking (I recommend this) and received an upgrade to a bigger room with...

Enjoyed our stay at The Fairmont but thought that the additional charge for wifi in our romm was over the top! Well situated, staff friendly and a decent place. Very clean and tidy and generally in a good location.

I have stayed here multiple times but last week was probably the best visit yet. I should preface this review by noting I am a Presidents Club Platinum tier member. The room was comfortable and I was upgraded to a suite. The suite was a one bedroom on the 6th floor. I had a view out my window of the... More

From the front desk to room service to the housekeeping staff on my corridor, everybody knows my name and greets me. These are the most greetings that I have received anywhere and I have been a lot of places! The hotel is posh and elegant and pricey. You definitely know that you are moving in the fast lane.

I am a liitle dubious about "Heritage" hotels that have been landmarks in their cities for decades. The Royal York is one. Built by Canadian Pacific railway and opened in 1929, it is surely an impressive place, especially the Lobby, as it supposed to be. But dig deeper and the crack start to appear - literally in some places. I... More

Dear stephen b, Thank you for your review. We are very hapy to learn that you were impressed by our lobby and received helpful service from Michael upon arrival. Some guests find a room's proximity to the elevators more disruptive than others and we apologize that our front desk agent did not discuss this during check-in and offer some alternative... More
