We recently stayed at the Royal York for a weekend getaway with our daughter. The hotel is very beautiful and our little one constantly referred to it as a castle. We were lucky and had a lovely suite. The sitting room was huge as it comfortably held a dining room table and living room areas with chairs and a sofa. The bedroom was a very nice size too.
The signs of age for the hotel were apparent though as there were several areas that indicated that the hotel is well over the hundred year old mark. That said the comment should not be taken to mean that the hotel is low-end or run down – its not. It is also not a modern boutique hotel either so if that’s what you’re preferences are then the Royal York is not for you. The location is perfect as its situated right across form Union Station access via transit is no problem. There was plenty of parking (careful with the valet hotel parking, at $45.00 a day it is not cheap).
The front desk people were very nice and helpful; however housekeeping was slow. We intended on using the pull out sofa for our daughter that night and requested that it be ready for that use when we checked in. By 8pm that night there were still no linens. It took until after 10pm to get that sorted out and she was exhausted by then.
This incident aside I would definitely recommend the Royal York if you need to be in downtown Toronto and close to the financial core.
