The Royal York Hotel is still the landmark hotel in Toronto despite the entry of some of the higher end properties. While the rooms are small by modern standards, the hotel is a beehive of activity, offers outstanding service and its location cannot be beat if you are visiting Toronto. We've stayed here a number of times, most recently for... More

I don't think I have ever stayed in a more comfortable bed! Not everything in the hotel was perfect, so I am not giving it the best rating; During my visit the hotel was overcrowded, so the service was slow. But the hotel staff tried hard and they were really nice.

The Fairmont never disappoints from the moment you walk through the doors until you leave. It was a girls weekend in my family and they spoiled us the entire time. They sent a smaller bathrobe for my niece to our room along with bottled water and slippers for all. The spa was wonderful with fresh fruit and lemon water available.... More

I like the hotel and excellent service. I think that for the price, free internet access should be available in rooms also, not just in the lobby area. breakfast for one (buffet) was a whopping $58. Crazy. The view from had from my room was great, I could c a lot of the downtown area. The hotel is central to... More

My pregnant wife and I stayed here this weekend. We brought along our little poochie and everyone in the hotel loved him. We were meeting up with a couple who had a 10 month old baby and overall our stay was excellent. There was zero issues with staff, the room, or amenities. The front desk did offer to upgrade us...

A last minute decision to visit Toronto and if I was going back I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Located in the heart of down-town Toronto opposite Union Station it is walking distance to the CN Tower, The Blue Jay's home stadium, the lake, and shopping at the Eaton Centre. Our rooms were spacious, I guess the bathrooms could have been... More

Stayed at the Royal York for 3 days in order to attend a conference. The front desk was very busy at check in but the service was quick and efficient. The room was very clean & fonctionnel and the staff was excellent. Everything about this hotel is a class act including the food service at a banquet I attended there... More

Not only is the location the finest in Toronto, but the staff are courteous and go out of their way to ensure clients are comfortable and happy. The pool is excellent for kids, as there is a small wading area for younger kids, and the pool is comfortable for all swim levels. The highlight of our trip: Milk and cookies... More

We arrived around noon and had no problem checking in early. We were upgraded to a suite. The view wasn't much but the room was well-appointed-modern and very comfortable. The bed was extremely comfortable. We had two bathrooms which made getting ready to go out extremely convenient. The location is ideal for attending a Blue Jays game and convenient to... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
