Overall Impression: This was my first opportunity to visit the Elmwood Spa and I had an amazing spa experience shared with a girl friend. She had raved about the spa from previous visits and she knew all areas of the spa so I had a knowledgeable guide. I would not return on a Friday as it was quite busy and... More

Love love love The Elmwood. This location was my very first spa experience (many many years ago) and while I have tried multiple other locations, I always come back to The Elmwood. Having a steam room and hot tub directly in the ladies change room is a bonus for anyone who wants to avoid the general areas (ie male visitors).... More

Went here with friends. We had a gift card to enjoy. The spa is beautiful, however, it seems overbooked on the weekend. The massage I received was okay, but I have had better for a lower cost. My friends also agreed their massages were mediocre. We all received manicures and pedicures. Mine chipped the very next day. For the price... More

This place is amazing. The staff are wonderful and friendly. Their massage therapists (I was fortunate to have the 2 that does their massage very well), the place is immaculate.

A great spa to go and enjoy a day either with girlfriends or your partner. Staff is wonderful and the services are lovely. We visit the Elmwood at least twice a year for a complete spa package, we find it well worth the experience....so relaxing.

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.
