Kingston
Reviewed 30 December 2015

We stayed at the Royal York for 2 nights with our 7 year old, as part of a family mini-vacation to Toronto. We loved it, and we'll be back. Location: We take the train into Toronto, usually, so all we have to do is walk across the street. It is not bad, actually, even with luggage. Being across from Union...

For me this is my favorite hotel in Toronto and the best. Super clean and friendly. It's very luxurious. The beds are comfy the pillows are great. You sleep like a baby. Food is delicious and room service is good. When it's not sold out I stay here.

If you are visiting Toronto this grand old hotel is a great place to stay and explore the city. We took the train from Ottawa and simply walked across the street to this hotel. Not sure where you park a car and how much but like everything associated with the hotel it is likely pricey. We were there during a...

I've stayed at many historic Canadian Fairmont properties and this one has the nicest rooms I've experienced to date. The location is great for access to the financial district and transportation. I walked to the TELUS office building in about 5 minutes so will stay here again for meetings there.

The Royal York is the best hotel to stay at during the holiday season. The lobby decorations create a beautiful and somewhat magical welcome, from the moment you step foot in the door.

The parking was outrageous, $53 a night and we had to wait for a half hour to have our car brought back to us by the valet. The room and bathroom were tiny. The WiFi was pay only. For what we paid by using a third party booking system, it was ok. We were close to the theatre and the...

The Fairmont never disappoints. The ambiance, friendliness and quality of service is tops. The room was very spacious and the bed excellent. I had a relaxed and enjoyable stay. As a member of its Presidents Club, the Front Desk staff gave me a room upgrade.

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.
