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....

We used Trip Advisor to find this boutique hotel close to the very pleasant Yorkville precinct with it's great casual dining and village life.Hotel was in a quiet street with friendly staff and decent facilities giving us a very enjoyable stay.Dining room is convenient but not exciting.We'd go there again.

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

The Windsor Arms is a great hotel if you like the traditional ambiance. This has more the feel of an English club and would appeal to those who appreciate a more sedate style. This is not glitzy or trendy. Rooms that are comfortable and laid back service should you want to be left alone. I like to split my time... More

Luxurious boutique hotel in the heart of the city. Spacious & comfy suites. Loved the harp! Very quiet A/C. Very courteous staff & attentive service. Ask bartender Joe to make you the best chocolate martini you will ever have! Some minor comments/suggestions: Scale & placement of art work in suite is odd in our view. Coffee maker light flashes at... More

In the middle of this large, dusty, noisy city you'll find this haven of peace and tranquility with everything you need when you're away from home. From the large, comfortable rooms, the kind professional service, the excellent food and beverage, there is no need to stay anywhere else. Discreet, luxurious, and a great place to stay.

My girlfriend and I had a lovely experience this past week at the Windsor Arms. We found the rooms to be spacious, well maintained and charming but what will stick with us is the welcome we got from all the staff. I can't remember all the names but from the doormen to the front desk, chamber maids and even the... More

We stayed at the hotel because we booked our wedding at the Windsor Arms. The style of the hotel and location was completely ideal for us: close to the subway right in downtown without too far south and great accommodating service of the concierge, doorman & dinner staff. Back to our room, the bridal suite has two sinks, a jacuzzi... More

What a gem of a small hotel in buzzing downtown Toronto! Perfect antidote for a very dinamic and busy city. Our room was fabulous and the nightly turn over bed treats were delicious! Every night we were excited to discover a special little treat. We will definitely be back! Thank you staff for making our stay special!

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.
