Centrally located in downtown Toronto
No spa on-site
The Fairmont Royal York opened its doors 90 years ago and was the tallest building in the British Commonwealth. It no longer holds that title, but it still boasts the opulent decor that made it so famous nearly a century ago. The hotel is conveniently connected to the city's underground walkway and sits just one block from the Scotiabank Arena. However, guests warn that the guest rooms come with thin walls that can make for a noisy stay. If you're looking for extra quiet, find the hotel's Health Club, which features an indoor lap pool, whirlpool, saunas, steam room and fitness center. For food, try one of the Fairmont's five dining venues: Benihana Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Lounge, Piper's Pub, Library Bar, REIGN Restaurant + Bar and CLOCKWORK Champagne & Cocktails. Library Bar's cocktails and charming atmosphere are especially popular among guests. When you stay at this AccorHotels branch, you can earn frequent flier miles and redeem rewards through the Le Club AccorHotels program.

Critic Reviews


But the location is as good as it gets: The hotel is connected by underground PATH walkways to Union Station, Air Canada Centre, Eaton Centre, and the Hockey Hall of Fame, and is blocks from shopping on Yonge Street.



Wall murals and elaborate ceiling treatments distinguish this landmark hotel, which is across the street from the transit system. A full book about the history of the property is available in the signature gift shop, and a brief summary is written up in the guest service directories.

Lonely Planet
