Lets start with the negative. We had booked this hotel through booking.com after a search based on one criterion: the availability of an airport shuttle. Sadly, on arrival we discovered that the Fairmont does not actually have one despite it being advertised. Taxis apply a flat rate of CAD 55, or 65-67 if you are a larger party and need... More

Advice to the hotel management: Do not to major rebuilding of the hotel during conferences with 1000+ participants, and if you do, do not fill up the hotel. Terrible noise in the room, got a new room but still serious sounds from building activities. Not what I expect from a hotel like the Royal York. From my colleagues attending the... More

A gentleman at the front desk provided me a room whose window was blocked. The room was so dark. Although, a lady at the front desk adjusted the arrangement after we went to the front desk again and asked to change the room.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and found it to be a lively hotel in the heart of everything. Walking distance to the Blue Jays, ferries to Toronto Island, and subway station. We found the room to be clean and comfortable. Be sure to have a drink at the Library Bar during your stay!

We booked and asked for a 1 p.m. check in which wouldn't be a problem we were told. We arrived at 2 p.m. room was not ready but were offered a room with a tarp over the window instead. We declined. Came back at 3:15 (check in is at 3 p.m.) room still not ready but once again there was... More

In general our stay at the Fairmont was pleasant. The hotel was completed in 1929 and the rooms are small and the bathrooms and closets (for an 8 day stay) are inadequate. I really missed having drawers so that I could unpack my bags. The bell service was great and it is conveniently located to Aire Canada Centre as well... More

Conveniently located in the middle of downtown Toronto, walking distance from everywhere. The lobby looks magnificent and the staff is warm & welcoming. There's a Benihana Steakhouse + other restaurants inside which is nice even though I didn't eat there, I like the street corner cafes. The nicer hotels in Toronto are usually overpriced in my opinion, not this one.... More
