Very nice hotel in excellent, discreet location. The suites are very nicely appointed and spacious, however the carpet in our suite (Sultan's Suite) was very badly worn and stained. This should not be the case in a hotel of this caliber and price. Also, on a related cleanliness issue, the area adjacent to the entrance was covered with cigarette ends... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2016 via mobile

I've been to Toronto several times and always stayed downtown before. But this time I had to look further afield and ended up in Yorkville because a tech conference had taken all the downtown rooms. And what a piece of luck. This hotel was amazing! To start with I had a beautiful corner suite with a big lounge. There is... More

From the doorman,to the front desk taking us half hour before our booked time the experience was exquisite! Our hostess,I hope I get the name right when I... More

This small boutique hotel has been famous as a stop for celebrities, especially during the Toronto Film Festival, for many years. My room had English furniture, a modern and spacious bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and throne room. The Globe and Mail came up each morning on the dumb waiter and cookies or pastries at night. The personal... More

We only had two days and one night in Toronto and the hotel was perfect.It is small and very charming. The entire staff was friendly and very helpful.

The front desk , door man and room service staff could not have been more helpful or accomodating. The room was beautifully appointed, with nepresso machine. The bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet - with no noise coming in from the street.

This hotel is perfectly located. The staff are very good; very helpful and friendly. The service and the breakfast were excellent. All of the facilities are good. It is like a home from home to come back to after a busy day out on a hot summer's day.

The rooms are very nice, at least the 2 we had, and supposedly on an upgrade, even though the staff was discreet about it, not to upset others at the check-in. Room service impeccable, the food Canadian.

We had a family birthday dinner. The menu offered good choice. The staff treated us very nicely. They were attentive to our needs. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for fine kosher dining. We had the prime rib. It was very good, the best in Toronto. It is a good idea to make reservations.

I always default to the Royal York in Toronto but this time 15,000 Microsoft acolytes had descended on the City and I needed an alternative. The Windsor Arms is a 'old school' Yorkville hotel in a very positive way, the service is exemplary without ever being pushy or invasive and the hotel has an old world charm without looking tired....

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.
