The staff of this hotel pays such attention to details that it feels like I couldn't have wanted for anything that wasn't readily available. AND more than one of them wouldn't accept a tip! Their dedication to service coupled with the solidly, old world beauty of the place makes it one of my favorite hotels, ever. Big, quiet rooms, stocked... More

We flatter ourselves seasoned travelers, and have enjoyed such heralded hotels as The Park Hyatt in Tokyo, the Ritz in Paris, and the Covent Garden in London. Now we have a new favorite: the Windsor Arms in Toronto. Nestled on a cozy side-street just moments from the plush shops of Bloor Street, it's an absolutely sumptuous property with spacious, elegant... More

This is the best of hotels in Toronto..old school class and distinctive furnishings. Very accommodating staff and extraordinary food and lodging. I prefer this Hotel over the Ritz..much more intimate hotel with a pelithury of character.

I went with three of my girlfriends to the Windsor Arms for high tea. We had tried several other places in Toronto prior to this, so it was becoming somewhat of a ritual. The hostess takes your coats and hangs them up in the coat room so you didn't have to worry about sitting with them at your table. The... More

This was my first time to Toronto and the Everyone at the Windsor Arms went out of their way to make sure my experience was beyond satisfactory. I have to especially mention Kevin the front office manager who went above and beyond to assist me with my flight check-in and printing my boarding pass which was a painstaking process but... More

This is a small, but charming boutique hotel. Has a super location right in the heart of Toronto. Check in was friendly and fast. There is some shopping and fine dining establishments within walking distance, but the food on site is so good, that I don't think you'll need to go elsewhere, except for variety. We stayed just a night,... More

The hotel is simply excellent, in terms of location, decor, room size, and the service is really above and beyond what one would expect even from a top luxury hotel. There were two things though that I believe were really outstanding; - Front Desk personal was friendly, helpful and at all times volunteered relevant information that made our stay a... More

Really enjoy this hotel, from the personal greeting, friendly service, well trained staff. People make this hotel special and this hotel has great people working here. Rooms are spacious, clean and old world luxury with a like new appearance. Buffet breakfast is a little odd but it works and is good. Never have to wait for the elevator either. You... More

My wife, son & I wanted a change from a typical stay-at-home-on-the-long-weekend break and so we booked the Windsor Arms for one night last week. We figured that walking around downtown, doing some shopping and having a nice meal at our favourite downtown restaurant would be a nice change of pace. The hotel is small and charming and the room... More
