A safe bet

Being a Fairmont property, you can't go wrong. The staff was excellent, though the service at the driveway / valet was a bit lackluster on multiple occasions.

Lovely hotel

The Fairmount Royal York is a lovely historic hotel with many ammenities. The rooms are clean and well appointed. It is located across from the main Toronto train station, walkable to the Harborside, CN Tower, Rogers Center, across from the subway and around the corner from Bixi Rental bikes. The only difficulty is that until at least spring 2014, the entire area in front of the hotel is under construction and it makes it somewhat cumbersome to come and go.

Room 181 is to be avoided

to close to the maid service center and the ice machine. the combination is early to rise and late to sleep. the food service in room was expedient. the maid service was mindful of everything. Appreciate the marvelous stay and the pleasant atmosphere. the service and food in the Library was exquisite and delightful. Thanks Mike...

Romantic holiday

Quite courteous and cordial hotel staff. Lovely in-room amenities and excellent property location for tourists. Currently there is extensive construction occuring nearby the hotel, tho didn't pose a noise problem merely a factor for traffic.

Take advantage of the express checkout. Rather than waiting in line to check-out, simply complete the easy form and drop it and key card into hotel check-out box at lobby kiosk. No waiting and you can get on with your day.

The classic Toronto hotel

I always enjoy staying at the Royal York. My only complaint is that the room doors do almost nothing to block the sound of people in the hallways late at night.

Fairmont Royal York--worth the stay!

We had a lovely time at the Fairmont Royal York hotel. The hotel and its rooms are lovely and comfortable and the hotel could not be in a better location for so many of the fun things Toronto has to offer. My only areas of disappointment in our room was that the room was not fitted with an in-room safe and the furnishings were a bit worn. This was a minor consideration when I take into account that the room was so quiet and restful. Overall, it was a great stay and we would stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The shuttle to the Pearson Int'l airport is about $40 one way per couple. Taxis cost about $55 one way from the Royal York Fairmont downtown to the airport, but a town car is $58. Because of all the construction, Royal York has a number of town cars and taxis located in front. They really try minimize the impact of the train construction happening outside their front door.

Son's wedding inToronto

The valet was polite and helped us, the lobby beautiful as usual, the room was clean. The only issue is that we could not see out our window, as a filter or screen was covering the outside. This was an odd feeling, as we are used to a view (of something...). It could make some claustrophobic.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

You are walking distance from theatre, the St. Lawrence Market shopping area and the Hockey Hall of Fame, along with many fine restaurants. The hotel, itself has so many places to dine and to shop, I would've liked to have had more days to spend right in the hotel.
