This hotel is enormous and is very handily located, directly opposite the Union railway station. We had paid extra via the British Airways website for a luxury room and we did have a good side view of the CN tower, but it certainly wasn't a large room and wasn't particularly luxurious, so I dread to think what a standard room...

Dear Cuttingblade, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to learn that your guestroom did not exceed your expectations and are sorry that you did not bring this to our attention during your visit so that we could have suggested one of our larger Deluxe or Signature rooms, some of which have bigger bathrooms.

Stayed 2 nights while visitingToronto. Right across from the Train Station. Easy access to subway and many restaurants and venues. Updated to a luxury suite recently renovated. While small, very good amenities. Loved the shower heads. Of course the beds, as in all Fairmont properties, was very comfy. Will certainly come again as we plan annual visits.

Hadn't stayed at this property for about two-plus years and was fortunate to stay in a modernized room (make sure to ask for one at check-in). The lobby remains elegant and your choice of beverage and drinking options is good. As for the modernized room, gone is the stoic old CP/Fairmont furniture in favour of modern/minimalist design with a proper...

We loved staying at the Royal York when attending the True Patriot Love Tribute Dinner in Toronto, November 4th. The room was spacious with a great seating area. The bathroom held one person at a time and the closet was extremely small. The service, as always at a Fairmont Hotel, was exceptional.

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.
