This is a wonderful hotel with all the facilities and perfectly positioned in Toronto . The hotel has stood the test of time , but is showing signs of years of many visitors enjoying what it has to offer. We enjoyed dinner and lunch at the hotel , and the quality of the food and presentation was outstanding.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed March 18, 2017

I was at the hotel for an overnight layover. The location is great, less than 30 minutes by UP Express train from the airport and it’s right across from Union Station. The train station was being renovated so the underground pathway directly connecting the hotel and the station was closed. (However, the next day I found out if you took...

Wonderful stay at the Fairmont Royal York. We took the train in and couldn't have asked for a better location, literally right across from the tracks. Never heard a train though in our room. It was very clean, well furnished and quiet. The building is beautiful and staff friendly. This will be my go to hotel for Toronto.

Stayed here for one night and it was wonderful. The front desk girl was extremely pleasant and helpful. I like how you can leave your cell phone number and they will text you directly to see if you have any needs or concerns. It was cool being able to text for more coffee pods!

Really quite beautiful old hotel. Room was fairly small with 1 king and no bath but still a classy place. Linens were very comfortable but bed was to soft for my liking. Nice medium sized gym and lovely pool. Would stay again as service was great and really enjoyed the texting feature that I could text for any request. All...

If in Toronto.... I would highly recommend this historical upscale hotel. Don't let the upscale part scare you off as there are a lot of average Canadian visitors staying here as well. We flew into Toronto, caught the UP train to Union Station for $12 each and were downtown in ~30 Minutes - too easy. The Fairmont is directly across...

There is no doubt this is the best location on town and probably the first choice to stay in Toronto. The staff is great as so is the bars, restaurants and shops. But, as other Fairmonts we stayed the rooms are very old and not in accordance with the great building. When you see this great building, you imagine the...

Definitely a little more expensive. A little older but in great shape. The service, the atmosphere and the class are a cut above the norm. We stayed on the Gold Floor and while the rooms are a bit small the atmosphere more than makes up for it. The afternoon snacks and the excellent buffet breakfast are a real treat. First...

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.
