I love this hotel. I stay at the Royal York whenever I have business in Toronto. It is consistently a pleasant, comfortable and quality experience. The staff always make me feel welcome, addressing me by name and going the extra step to ensure that my needs are satisfied. The decor is grand and the rooms are extremely clean, comfortable and...

My husband and I were so impressed with the Royal York. The lobby is so impressive--spacious and ornate. The historical photos on the mezzanine are so interesting. The room was compact but beautifully updated. The furnishings and finishes are classically elegant and luxurious. The updates have been so carefully done and we really appreciated the significant investment that management has... More

Overall I really enjoyed my stay. The lobby and common spaces are fairly opulent but very tasteful. Lots of tile, brass and beautiful furniture and lighting. The hotel is very conveniently located, directly across from the train station, and half a block from the shuttle to Billy Bishop airport. We literally did not pay a dime for ground transportation over... More

I recently travelled to Toronto to run in my first full marathon race. Not being from the city, I felt that I needed to be close to main transportation amenities especially Union Station as after my race, I would not be up to walking great distances. The Fairmont Royal York provided me with an excellent location. A walk across the... More

In my opinion, the Royal York hotel remains the best place in downtown Toronto if you are in town for watching sports. Recently stayed during the blue jays playoff run, and this was electric with support for them. Proximity to Rogers centre or the ACC is very close, and there is no shortage of great pubs/bars/restaurants in any direction from... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood 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.
