I was looking forward to a lovely stay at a historic hotel that had pretty great reviews. When we arrived, the front desk clerk was busy with another guest and then phone calls and didn't bother to acknowledge us at all. When check in was taking a long time I asked him what was going on and he replied in...

Dear Swankyhotels I am saddened that your visit to the Windsor Arms was disappointing. I would like to take this opportunity to correct some factual comments. The Windsor Arms is less than 15 years old and over the past 15 years it has been updated 3 times. We are committed to providing the finest accommodations in Toronto. The Windsor Arms...

The staff of this hotel pays such attention to details that it feels like I couldn't have wanted for anything that wasn't readily available. AND more than one of them wouldn't accept a tip! Their dedication to service coupled with the solidly, old world beauty of the place makes it one of my favorite hotels, ever. Big, quiet rooms, stocked...

We flatter ourselves seasoned travelers, and have enjoyed such heralded hotels as The Park Hyatt in Tokyo, the Ritz in Paris, and the Covent Garden in London. Now we have a new favorite: the Windsor Arms in Toronto. Nestled on a cozy side-street just moments from the plush shops of Bloor Street, it's an absolutely sumptuous property with spacious, elegant...

This is the best of hotels in Toronto..old school class and distinctive furnishings. Very accommodating staff and extraordinary food and lodging. I prefer this Hotel over the Ritz..much more intimate hotel with a pelithury of character.

I went with three of my girlfriends to the Windsor Arms for high tea. We had tried several other places in Toronto prior to this, so it was becoming somewhat of a ritual. The hostess takes your coats and hangs them up in the coat room so you didn't have to worry about sitting with them at your table. The...

This was my first time to Toronto and the Everyone at the Windsor Arms went out of their way to make sure my experience was beyond satisfactory.

This is a small, but charming boutique hotel. Has a super location right in the heart of Toronto. Check in was friendly and fast. There is some shopping and fine dining establishments within walking distance, but the food on site is so good, that I don't think you'll need to go elsewhere, except for variety. We stayed just a night,...

The hotel is simply excellent, in terms of location, decor, room size, and the service is really above and beyond what one would expect even from a top luxury hotel. There were two things though that I believe were really outstanding; - Front Desk personal was friendly, helpful and at all times volunteered relevant information that made our stay a...

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.
