Our bad start was the only negative part. We had been offered an eStandby upgrade to Fairmont Gold (if available on arrival) for a special rate of $22.00/night upon booking, but at check in we were told that there was no record of us receiving this offer on their computer. Apparently there were Fairmont Gold rooms available, but we were... More

My wife and I stayed at the Royal York on Valentine's Day and caught a show in town (Once). Yet again The Royal York was exceptional. The staff were unfailingly polite and helpful. The rooms are classic (we enjoy the older rooms for their ambiance). The Library Bar is a great spot for a nightcap and Epic restaurant provides a... More

We were returning to Toronto after being away for quite some time and needed a place to stay for a few days. The Royal York has always been our 'home away from home', even though we have lived in Toronto for quite a while. From the moment you walk in the doors you truly feel like you have come home....

Stayed here twice, both in Gold. Staff couldn't do enough for you, the hotel was perfect and having the Gold Lounge was an added bit of luxury. The hotel is large, but well maintained and rooms very extremely luxurious. Perfectly situated in the city and close to many attractions.

We stayed here for 2014 New year and since we booked through a third party website I didn't get a good room. The room was very small which was similar to 3 star hotel or lower. Since I had my expectations very high this was pretty disappointing & made me think I could have chosen a 3 star hotel with... More

An injury just before my stay left me with mobility issues that I was afraid would prove problematic. My fears were alleviated immediately by the accommodating and genuine caring nature of the Royal York’s impressive staff, who went out of their way to ensure that my injury would not impede my visit and made my stay a memorable one. I... More

new signature room was truly lovely with nice new furniture and bath. Love the history, location and friendly staff. Construction in front was a minor nuisance so recommend valet parking at hotel. Situated close to many amenities - walking distance to union station, CN tower, convention centre and more. Have stayed here several times and will continue to return.

Great location if you are arriving by train. The underground Path is very good in bad weather. The food court is handy in mornings or lunch. If you are a Tim Horton's fan, there is a shop just north of West entrance.

I emailed the hotel ahead of time to ask if possible to have a high up floor with a nice view for our anniversary. We got it! A room on the 17th floor with a view of the CN Tower and harbourfront. We received a complimentary cheesecake delivered to our room and the staff is extremely friendly. The room was... More

The RY out did itself again. The renovated rooms are wonderful. I always find staying at the RY an enjoyable experience and this time was no different!! The staff try hard to make your stay a great one and even if the City still has everything dug up around the hotel they seem to find a way!!
