I recently stayed at the Windsor Arms, a beautiful old relic from a different age. Pros: the rooms are spacious and staff is eager to please. Cons: although breakfast is included- for a 5 star hotel the buffet is quite limited and ordinary. What saves it is your choice of omelettes. The windows in the rooms don't open past 6"... 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

I stayed at the Windsor Arms Hotel on the night of my wedding. The hotel is in my favourite part of Toronto! Prior to my stay, I spoke with Danielle at the front desk.

Hi Dalhousie1 Thank you for choosing to stay at the Windsor Arms on your Wedding Night. I hope you enjoyed your stay. I want to apologize for the confusion at front desk. Unfortunately we do not guarantee complimentary upgrades prior to check-in. Your arrival was during a very busy time for us at the Windsor Arms, and while The Windsor... More

The location in Toronto is perfect, and this grand dame of a hotel is very accommodating. It has been around for a while and that is reflected in the generous scale of the rooms. Staff were terrific. Wasnt terribly impressed by the late night room service but I had arrived after they had stopped serving dinner and was grateful that... More

The Windsor Arms Hotel is absolutely perfect. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with an extremely warm, friendly, and helpful reception. Once escorted up to my suite, I was simply amazed. It was beautifully decorated with old world style furniture, and extremely spacious. I am definitely looking towards returning on my next trip.

Hotel is from the 20's and has a pretty particular facade, like an old university building. But inside lots of wood and leather and gentleman's club coziness, and a real sense of place. I hate generic hotels of any category - and this is definitely not that. A few little tips of that hat towards eccentricity were perhaps not needed... More

Staying at The Windsor Arms, you realize this is a truly special hotel. Our room was very large, beautifully decorated, and the bed was extremely comfortable. This is the total opposite of a 200-300 room hotel where you're given 25 sq m with minimalist furniture to make the room seem bigger. Our room even had a guitar to play. I... More

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

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.
