This might be a good place if you spend time at the hotel to take advantage of the amenities. I only stayed for under 8 hours to sleep and catch the shuttle to the airport. There is no shuttle service any more. I had to take a limo for $60 (same cost as a cab according to the doorman). A... More

When travel leaves the soul weary, when the body aches from the crampt spaces and long walks with luggage, when the mind screams for silence from the crowds, the announcements, the small movie screens, just the endless assult of traveling, The Fairmont is just the location to wrap the body in luxury, escape into the depths of restoration and awaken...

I've stayed at the Fairmont Royal York hotel twice with my boyfriend. Both times have been absolutely amazing! The hotel and rooms are stunning with beautiful antique decor. The renovated rooms are decorated differently but still have an art deco feel to them. The food in the restaurant (as well as room service) is delicious and I'm happy they have... More

9th floor view of the wall. Why would they even take a room that tiny and say it fits 4 people? We couldn't even turn around. We were there for an educational conference and I thought it was very inappropriate for them to tell us upon checking in that our 9th floor room wouldn't have a view and asked us... More

Always great to stay in a hotel that is rich in history with excellent upkeep and modern amenities. Great a great hotel downtown 2 blocks form the convention center, fine and casual dining and many other attractions. A great meeting place for business or pleasure.

My husband and I just returned from a weekend away at the Royal York. We were pleasantly upgraded to a suite because our room was not available when we arrived. Beautiful newly renovated room that exceeded our expectations. The service was amazing from all staff members. They truly care about making their guests comfortable. I will never shop around for...

I loved staying here despite the quirks ( expensive wifi and slightly noisy room). The elevators purred us from floor to floor, in my case 17th with a wonderful view. Epic. Restaurant had great reasonably priced food...healthy too and the staff were simply lovely. I ate alone the first night and felt welcomed and at ease, and I was offered... More

I stayed here for three nights while attending an academic conference held at the hotel. I got the conference rate and paid for the club level (about $330 CAD per night). I moved to the Intercontinental (a couple of blocks away) after three nights and will compare the two below. The Fairmont Royal York is well located downtown. It is... More

Very nice hotel with perfect location. The service was world-class. Rooms are very perfectly clean. Royal York is the chance to witness a bit of our cultural history. Cant's say enough good things about this hotel.

all good, very convenient location considering all the construction. Room was satisfactory, even had a bit of a view. Easy to get around to our dinner reservation and entertainment event. The hotel still stands out as a historical location there is a great deal of interest from a historical perspective about the hotel that has not been completely lost.
