Had a great one night stay at the historic Royal York last month while attending a concert at the Air Canada Centre, a very easy walk from hotel. Front desk service was courteous and friendly, and the look of the lobby is beautiful. The Library Bar offers a very cool dim lit setting and had a lounge singer on Saturday...

The newly renovated rooms in the hotel are great! For the most part...There is a corner that has the "NEW RENO" smell...not sure what but it is very strong and hard to live with...not possible to get rid of. Maybe the glue or new carpet smell? Anyhow if you receive the "free upgrade" check it out..it is a 500 sq...

The Fairmont Royal York (just "Royal York" to the taxi driver) is a great place to stay in downtown Toronto - especially for business. It is directly across the street from the equally impressive Union Station and because of this, it is VERY easy to get to from the Toronto Airport (YYZ). There is a train that gets you from...

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.
