Overview

Large rooms
Some guests say the hotel needs updating
The Windsor Arms is an especially quaint Toronto boutique hotel, according to recent visitors. A brick exterior welcomes visitors to the elegant comforts inside. It's the beauty of this Yorkville property, nestled among high-end shops, that keeps many guests returning to this spot, just steps from Bloor Street. Recent visitors said the 28 suites — equipped with an acoustic guitar, deep soaking tubs and flat-screen TVs — are spacious, but are in need of a refresh. And for the anglophiles who can't get enough of the property's English atmosphere, the Windsor Arms features an on-site tea room offering midday sips alongside a fireplace. For larger meals, try one of the hotel's two on-site restaurants: The Gatsby or Savion. At the spa, a large terrace and saltwater pool are each refreshing ways to unwind before or after a treatment.

Heated limestone floors will warm your feet after you soak in the jetted tub or come out of the shower. Afternoon tea is a wonderful treat.
