My daughter and I have gone to afternoon tea at the Windsor Arms, on Boxing Day, for many years now. It is my daughters birthday, and the Windsor Arms is one ot the only hotels that do tea on that day. The last few years they have raised the price for tea to $65.00. I asked about this price increase...

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. The room was beautifully decorated. The service at the hotel was great. A personalized note with small dessert squares were in the room when I arrived. Holiday...

If you want a good night's sleep, stay far-far away from this hotel. Here's why: My wife and I booked a night at this hotel as our first night away from our 15-month old daughter. We thought we'd finally get a good night’s sleep. The hotel has a very quiet, old world feel to it. It seemed like a very...

This is one of my favourite places for either afternoon or twilight tea. There is a good selection of teas and the sandwiches, scones and deserts are never disappointing! The service is exceptional and the wait staff are efficient and experienced. The setting is comfortable as well. I have never been disappointed. The hotel's food is exceptional as are the...

Spent lots and lots of time researching hotels to spend NYE at in Toronto, finally settling on the Windsor Arms. Everything about this experience was phenomenal, starting with our free room upgrade upon check-in. The butler was funny and charming, and did not hesitate to provide us with anything we needed! We didn't attend the party hosted by the hotel,...

What was once a iconic hotel has lost its luster. Overpriced, uncomfortable beds, bathrooms in desperate need renovations. Terrible room service, noisy. When I complained they did not care. They have lost a customer. There are so many better choices in the Yorkville area.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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.
