Toronto lodging

Overall, the hotel was fine. With current subway construction in downtown Toronto it was less accessible than usual, but should be an easy ride from the airport by train once that is done. There did not seem to be many restaurant options nearby. My real frustration was with the wi-fi in the room. It was not fast and I had a bad time uploading a couple of files I needed to send to a colleague.

It is a good location but the hotel could use a little more renovating in order to be even better.

Great customer service

From the moment we arrived the staff was extremely friendly. There were renovations happenings on the floor we were on so they gave us the internet access for free. The lady also walked us to the liquor store to make sure we didn't get lost. That really surprised me. The rooms were nice, not fancy but good enough. The location is very close to the CN Tower and the Air Canada Centre. I would definitely stay here again.

Concerned and helpful staff

The hotel was at full capacity for the first night, consequently I was put in a room in which the window was covered because of renovations being done outside; it was very claustrophobic. Fortunately, for the remaining two nights they moved me to a room with a proper view which was far more pleasant.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

If you are travelling with limited luggage, the subway and bus system @ $3.00 to and from the airport is very fast and quite a saving.

End of summer get-a-way

We had a very pleasant stay at the Fairmont Royal York. Although there is some construction in the area, this did not negatively impact our comings and goings around the hotel. It is conveniently located to the Rogers Center, CN Tower, and Harbourfront which were all key destinations for our group. All of these attractions are a short walk away. The airport shuttle service is also close by.The desk clerks and concierges were all more than helpful and top notch. We were a bit surprised that Wi FI services were not complimentary as there was a daily fee for internet access. Wi Fi is available at no charge in the lobby, which is not always ideal. Given that this hotel is in the financial district, one would expect this amenity.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

This hotel has great old world charm. Back in the day, it was the largest hotel in the British Empire. The rooms were beautiful, clean and roomy. The place was bustling, in a good way! We also stay at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal.

Best way to see Toronto is by an on & off bus tour. You can book it right in the hotel and see all the interesting neighborhoods in Toronto.

Night in town to attend a wedding

The service and location were wonderful. The room was very average considering the price. I would try another hotel next time, and I'm not sure I would stay at the Royal York again. That's really only because if the room, the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
