The Fairmont Royal York is a majestic, historic hotel that exudes elegance and provides an experience that new hotels only wish they could match. The beautiful lobby was always bustling with people. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend drinks or a bite to eat in the elegant yet comfortable Library Bar. The downtown location is perfect. It... More

The hotel is stunningly decorated for Christmas and a beautiful, historic place to stay, but what made our stay so special was the level of service we received. The staff went above and beyond to make my mother's 80th birthday special. They know how to spoil their guests. She even returned from the theatre to find a card and chocolate... More

Very good hotel, nice location and amazing ambient. We really enjoyed out stay and likely we will come again. Our baby boy simply adore their spa center and the pool. Only inconvenience is with the parking which you can not reach easily and is very expensive. But we suppose that's like with all hotels in downtown of Toronto. See you... More

This is a grand old Canadian Railway hotel. Our room was nicely furnished and recently updated. The lobby is classic old hotel, and the Library Bar is a great place to stop for a drink. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

You get what you paid for is so true in this instance. Can be a little pricey depending on what time of the year you go. Came on our honeymoon and once on a family holiday prior to that time.

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.
