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.

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.

Not the Ritz

its a great place if you are used to the motel 6. bad bathroom and linnens, noisy, tiny bathroom, horrible restaurant recommendations. Don't do it - their are plenty of nice hotels in Toronto. Not worth the money.

Huge Hotel

Arrived at hotel and was amazed by the size of the hotel. It was by far the largest hotel I have ever stayed. Just huge. The staff was friendly. No issues checking in or checking out. Though an older hotel, it was still impressive. I did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food. Lots of places to eat outside the hotel that were fun.

Dirty

I was shocked at the deluxe room in the Royal York. We had to wait till around 4:30 pm before the room was ready. It still wasn't ready so they gave us a different room. When we got to our floor it smelled of smoke and so did our non smoking room. The room was supposed to be set up for 3 people and it was only set for 2 people. We had to keep calling housekeeping for extra cups, glasses, robes, towels etc. In the room carpet was filthy. When we asked for something the housekeeping staff were nice, but that was the only redeeming feature of the hotel. We had a sofa bed that you didn't even want to sit on, let alone sleep on. It was old, the upholstery was worn and dirty. The whole time you were having a shower you were up to your ankles in dirty water because the tub didn't drain properly. I was embarrassed to have invited my friends from out of town to the hotel. I expected the Royal York rooms to be much better and atleast to have clean furnishing.
