Expert reviews

CNN review:

“The Royal York is the Grand Dame of Toronto’s hotel scene, an imposing stone and copper-roofed structure that’s firmly anchored in a sea of steel and glass. It’s been a star since it officially opened in 1929, a favorite for royalty, celebrities, movie directors and regular folk.”

Telegraph review:

“Dominating the skyline for decades after it was built in 1929, the Royal York is the Canadian grande dame of the Fairmont chain. Amping up the luxury factor has kept the hotel in step with the times, a storied icon with a modern outlook. Recent guests have included members of the British Royal Family.”

Hotel was okay. Beautiful building and nice little spa area.

Room was way too warm no matter how cold we set the temp.


4 February 2024

It was rudiculously expensive but I felt safe and very comfortable.

Breakfast offerings were exceptional.

Room service vegetable pizza was disgusting. Raw vegetables and under cooked crust. Tomato sauce was more like tomato soup.


1 February 2024

Great location, price was okay and warm welcomes by the staff.

Beautiful,clean and very helpful staff.

Pillows were soft but otherwise great.


1 February 2024

The most comfortable beds and pillows ever

Wonderful comfortable beds Very clean Great staff

Decor a bit dated Especially the bathrooms


29 January 2024

The best place to stay for business travel.

wonderful bed, quiet area. My colleague had an issue with construction noise but was moved to another room.

more access to the restaurant. We needed a reservation to have dinner . no simple coffee shop.


28 January 2024

It was good. Staff were absolutely excellent

The building and its historic features. That was the main attraction for me. Loved the paintings of Toronto in the rooms. Staff went above and beyond. They got me on the floor I asked for with a view of union station. The staff said good morning and smiled at the guests. Really nice people working at the hotel.

There are some odd smells. There is a carpeted staircase around the lobby that smells very strongly of body odour. My room had an undesirable swampy smell. Might be the water system. A little over priced.

The room was a great size. Bed was good. Location also was perfect for what we needed.

The view was bad. We had the worst meal ever at the bar in the main lobby. The steak sandwich was nearly inedible, undercooked and super tough meat. For the price it should have been much better. If we had more time I would have complained about the meal.


21 January 2024

We had a great time. Would come again.

The bed, mattress to pillows and linens were outstanding. We'd buy them if available! The whole room, seperate living area and large closet was awesome. The staff was wonderful. Valet persons really hustled during a very busy time.

The bathroom would benefit from a shelf or place to put our toiletries and have lighting suitable for make-up but it was fine...it's a historic hotel so understand bathroom sizes may be smaller. Getting complimentary water, just like the coffee pods each day would be a nice perk.


18 January 2024

Fun weekend trip

Location location…especially near the holiday season the hotel gives you downtown Toronto holiday vibes. This stay was a gift for my niece along with tickets to the theatre and she loved the entire experience.

The lobby bar did not stay open late. After dinner and show you find yourself coming back to the hotel a bit late in the evening and it was a bit of a let down that the bar was closing and we were turned away.


18 January 2024

Very good

Very very festive for Christmas which made it a really enjoyable stay

I was expecting the rooms to be a bit nicer than what they were.. Bathrooms could do with modernising, shower pressure not great at all.


17 January 2024

Great place to stay but It doesnt worth the price

Great location and amazing place. Large room and comfortable beds.

Poor clearness - I found a sock under the sofa. Very expensive


16 January 2024


Location was perfect and the room was comfortable. Bathroom could have been a little larger but all and all it was an enjoyable stay.


15 January 2024

Beautiful hotel in a great area. Rooms are small but lobby area is lovely.

Beautiful lobby!

Facilities under construction so could not use. There should have been bathrobes in the room but were not there. Drainage issue in the shower. Was fixed by staff.


15 January 2024

My stay was quite enjoyable.

I very much liked that I could control the temperature of the room. Also I found the staff super friendly and helpful. It was great that I had so many options for television channels. Even though I did not use the fitness facility, I liked that I had the option.

When I came to check-in the line was extremely long. It took about 35 minutes to get up to the desk. At the desk the staff did apologize which I appreciated.


14 January 2024

Very pleasant, will be visiting again soon

It was a very clean and organized place.

Nothing in particular


11 January 2024


I didn't like the antisemitic antifa protest that was going on on Sunday accross the street making it difficult for me to leave. I so glad the Canadian Federal and Ontario Goverments supports this violence


9 January 2024

Exactly what we needed.

Room was comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly. On site restaurant was perfect for breakfast.

View wasn’t great. Elevator system was confusing. Tired to take other elevators and they wouldn’t go to my floor, had to get off in the lobby and take alternative ones.


9 January 2024

I really love the location and all everythings in the hotel. I felt impressive with the Front Staffs

Everything is good

Bell service staff seemed unhappy when I gave him tip. He just left after getting tip, not even say thank you or smile at all.


9 January 2024

An excellent first visit, will be back, and hope everyone begins to relax about being completely high-end. Just enjoy it

Iconic, well maintained and fun.

A bit aged, rather than rehabilitated.


8 January 2024

Very good

Comfortable bed. Duel aspect room. Well stocked mini bar

Small bathroom Small bedroom


6 January 2024

Excellent Stay

Location Staff Bed

Shower was in a bathtub


5 January 2024

Comfortable luxury

Unbeatable location with great views in the heart of major fan action in Toronto.

Could be a slightly more updated style of room.


5 January 2024


The Royal Fairmont, is a beautiful hotel with great facilities. The rooms are spacious, with a good bed and bathroom. The mini fridge is filled to the max, but would recommend the cocktails in the bar 😄! Simply said a very classy hotel! And if you like the Raptors or the Leafs, the ScotiaBank Arena is 2 minutes away, just like a lot of brewery's and (sports)bars. Was the second time we've stayed there.



4 January 2024

The room was lovely with all the amenities.

I enjoyed the pool & hot tub very much. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The Library Bar was wonderful - food and service excellent.

It seemed that there should have been complimentary bottled water and there wasn’t. The box spring cover was ragged & torn. It would have been helpful having directions for the Nespresso machine.
