A very pleasant boutique hotel just off Bloor street, like a throwback to last century with a real doorman who is a real help to guests and their visitors. The rooms are original and comfortable. Definitely not your chain hotel experience. The bar is cosy, the bar maid is helpful, and the selection of liquor is a bit narrow.

That rare thing, a luxury hotel with personality! Our beautiful room contained a harp which are used to wake my wife with in the morning. The staff (with a particular nod to Kevin) were gracious helpful and charming. I really can't understand why you'd stay anywhere else. This is clearly Toronto's best hotel and now one of my favorites in...

We celebrated our anniversary at this famed hotel, including dinner at The Living Room restaurant. The hotel was every bit as good as its reputation, but the execution around dinner service was not at the same level.Our issues related to poor staff training, not the food quality itself. The manager's indifference to our issues was most annoying. We complained to...

We ate in the restaurant. We did not stay in the hotel. The meal was delightful and creatively presented. We had a drink before the meal in the same pleasant, comfortable chairs. Our evening progressed with pleasure and just the right level of service. It was hard to miss a former Canadian Prime Minister at another table.

This tucked away little gem is worth a trip to Toronto just to experience the hotel. The staff is fabulous, the rooms luxurious, and the location is perfect for exploring the city. An in-house spa is an added plus for those incliment weather days of a trip. The afternoon tea is a must do (the scones are some of the...

We always stay at the Windsor Arms whenever we are in Toronto and on this occasion we were coming to do some Christmas shopping so we booked a couple of nights. As we arrived, there seemed to be media trucks and an army of personnel, together with police directing traffic. “Are you part of the production?” they asked. “No, we...

We stayed at the Windsor Arms at the end of our anniversary travels, and were very happy with our choice. The location is great, with multiple restaurants within easy walking distance, and the Royal Ontario Museum just a block away. The breakfast in the AM is an appreciated service, and all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. There was a...

I just returned from a visit to my hometown of Toronto and another stay at the Windsor Arms. Even though I arrived on Christmas Day when the hotel was busy with all sorts of holiday parties, the reception was warm and the staff attentive. We were given an upgraded suite for our four-night stay and the room was spacious, very...

It is hard to find a quiet spot in the hustle and bustle of Toronto in December. The Windsor arms is an oasis – close to all the shopping and great restaurants – but as soon as you step through the doors it's In a world of its own. The service is impeccable, the rooms well appointed and comfortable and...

Stayed in a beautiful room here one night before a business meeting. My room had a large living room area, big bedroom and the bathroom had a soaker tub and separate shower stall.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
