Fairmont Royal York

Toronto, Canada

The hotel

One of Toronto’s landmark hotels, Fairmont Royal York was built by Canadian Pacific Railway in 1929 and has since welcomed dignitaries and royalty, including Queen Elizabeth II. Once the tallest building in the British Empire, the hotel is housed in a distinctive chateau-style high-rise building and offers a wealth of amenities to keep you busy in-between sightseeing. The fitness centre is almost a world of its own with lap pool, children’s wading pool, steam rooms, saunas and a state-of-the-art gym. Two levels of shops are enough to satisfy the most ardent of shoppers with more shops located directly underneath the hotel in the PATH complex. Several exceptional restaurants cater to every kind of culinary desire. For mouth-watering steaks, look no further than Benihana Japanese Steakhouse and for the best martinis in town, head to the Library Bar with its rich furnishings and elegant atmosphere. Not to be missed is the afternoon tea and Rooftop Garden Tour, held every Saturday and Sunday.

Nice hotel and central to lots of amenities...parking is expensive! And the rooms are small ...beds are fine but not amazing. No bathtub...excellent linens though. Health center is excellent. Pool is nice. The restaurants in the hotel are nice.

I was placed directly adjacent to the elevators for 2 of 3 sleepless nights, on the third I was moved less proximal, but the hallway noise was so audible I had to place a towel along the base of the door. The hotel is really beautiful and ornate but is quite dated in terms of sound deadening. Also, good luck getting through to the front desk after… Read more

I suggest bringing ear plugs if you are a sensitive sleeper like me. Read less
