Clean rooms and courteous staff. Problems: we were told that only valet parking available because of construction and on the phone they told us it was $45 per night. When we asked why it was $5 more ($50 per night) , they explained that it just went up yesterday and that they could not change the new price. When we... More

Stayed here at the end of a Canadian Holiday in a Fairmont room on the 15th floor. The Royal York is a big hotel and the Fairmont rooms seem to be a standard size with kingsize double bed. The room was clean and in reasonable condition although on arrival our room had no fridge/drinks bar. This was reported to the... More

The hallways may feel like the ones from the movie the shining, but the rooms are modern and comfortable. Its location near the bluejay and convention centre is excellent. Plus vallet parking. I'm a walker.

We stayed here for one night on the final leg of a trip to the USA & Canada. We had been advised prior to travelling about the renovation works outside and although certainly not the hotels fault, there was a lot of noisy construction work going on around Union Station. However the ground floor of the hotel did not disappoint,... More

I checked into the Fairmont on September 10th and checked out on the 13th. I stayed in Room 5-139 and found the hotel although older was steeped in history, which as a history lover, I liked. Room was smaller than I am used to but was adequate. After watching Marketplace and seeing the segment on hotel cleanliness, which included the... More

Aside from the construction work, on the surface this hotel looks ok...the rooms are dark, dingy and not very clean. Such a disappointment for a strong hotel chain. The gym is in an even worse state and is also very cramped. There are much better and also cheaper hotels to stay at in downtown Toronto.

Recently had a four night stay at this hotel. It is located across from Union station which is very convenient and also has a Tim Horton’s coffee store next to it. The outside of the building in being renovated so there is noise and men walking on the platforms outside your window during the day. We even found people doing... More

Out of place surrounded by the glass and steel of Toronto, this hotel is a glimpse of an older, much slower world. It is a beautifully preserved and maintained building, and it looks as if mist of the original fittings and fixtures are still there - so it has a genuine appeal. Unlike some "old / historic" hotels, everything here... More
