My friend and I stayed here last weekend for 3 nights and were especially impressed by the helpfulness of the staff. The lobby and restaurant were decorated in very subdued, elegant tones. It's a lovely hotel in a great location. I would definitely stay here again.

I recently stayed at the Windsor Arms while attending a wedding (also at the hotel). Their staff were incredibly accommodating to our party, anticipating every need (including some urgent dry cleaning) with the utmost in professionalism. The rooms are unlike any other I've stayed in, being large, bright and spacious, while still capturing the traditional nature of this hotel. The... More

I was recently invited to dine at the Windsor Arms Hotel’s “The Living Room”. “The Living Room” is the only establishment to offer Kosher dining south of Eglinton Avenue. The a la carte, pre fixe dinner menu is offered every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I recommend making reservations ahead of time as the place is typically packed. The cost is... More

A lovely boutique hotel in Central Toronto close to the Royal Ontario Museum and shopping on Bloor Street. The hotel has been restored sympathetically to its age, originally built in the 30s. We were very disappointed in the included breakfast. One plate of brioche and coffee. We've travelled extensively, and know the difference between a full and continental, and the... More

Although the Royal York Hotel is my favourite place for afternoon tea, this comes a close second. Wonderful food, attentive service and a lovely decor. Highly recommend it. It isn't cheap but it is worth the price. Reservations really are a must.

This is a boutique hotel. It’s not a huge chain hotel with multiple restaurants, meeting rooms and many bars. If you need those then go elsewhere. But if you want a charming and highly civilized smaller hostel with personalized service at one of the best locations in Toronto, this may be the place for you, too. For many years we... More

The Windsor Arms hotel has become a home away from home as I stay here regularly when I visit my family in Toronto. The team always goes to great lengths to ensure that every stay is as comfortable as possible. This morning just before I checked out I discovered that my hire car had a flat tyre. Tim and Bradley...

I had a very pleasant six days at the luxurious Windsor Arms Hotel. The staff is super friendly, professional and very accommodating. I requested to bring my small dog and was approved.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
