I find the staff to be consistently excellent at Elmwood. I especially recommend their facials. Lunch service is also very good, with a nice choice of items. I think it would be great if the Whisper Room was stocked with water and tea; it seems unfair for patrons seeking more quiet to be denied immediate access to beverages.

Seven of us were accommodated with massages and lunch at the beautiful Elmwood Spa. Everyone spoke very highly of their RMT, and the facilities were lovely and clean. The lunch was almost too much food, delicious and with plenty to choose from. We were treated like gold, and the price was reasonable. If I lived in Toronto, I would definitely... More

I visited the Elmwood with a large group of girlfriends for a special occasion. In my opinion, this spa offers amazing value for money. Services, drinks, and food are all reasonably priced. The staff is polite and accommodating. Lots of little extras that make your visit feel extra special. I can't say enough good things about my experience. I cannot... More

I visited the Elmwood to take advantage of a $20 off event. I had been sick for a few weeks and my skin looked very dry and flaky. I took advantage of the water therapies and used the steam room, had some lovely Immunity tea in the waiting room and had a great Elmline Facial for an hour. The treatment... More

We've been to Elmwood a number of times and it's a great day spa with a variety of different services. We first went there with a WaySpa gift card for a couple's massage. We've since gone for additional couple's and regular massages as well as body treatments (scrubs). We've never had a problem at the spa and found it to... More

I was given a gift card which I supplemented with services that I paid for. The therapists/technicians were great but the customer service was absolutely terrible. After my pedicure I was going back into the changing room and an employee who was in a rush and not paying attention crashed into me and stepped with her full weight on my... More

My friend and I come here twice a year to catch up and pamper ourselves a little. We usually treat ourselves to mani/pedis and a massage or a facial, as well as lunch at the upstairs restaurant. Spending a couple of hours here is a great way to relax and disconnect from the world. You can now order a drink... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
