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.

Great location, old favorite

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

Temporary renovation Confusion

Our room(newly renovated) was very comfortable, well appointed, and a reasonable view from the window. The street construction and renovation of Union Station across the street produced difficulties in cabs, limos, and buses loading and unloading. Food service was good, and the hotel staff were courteous and friendly. Would not hesitate to stay there again when in Toronto.

Convenient location but requires updating - very very runned down room

The people were nice and the location would be convenient if there is no construction however I would rather be inconvenienced by staying at a more updated facility. I do not plan to stay there again. The rooms are disappointing because they are very very old, runned down and require lots of updating to be competitive relative to other hotels. The price is not cheap so you can stay at a more up to date place for the same money. Maybe my room was poor because I ordered it from an on-line discount provider. But $276 is not a discount for a poor room. Never again!

Fairmont Gold

I aways stay at the Gold level when staying at a Fairmont property. It is more money, but good value and if I am travelling solo as I did for this trip, it gives a place to have breakfast and dinner (canapés, but plenty for a dinner) as well as a glass of wine, in a comfortable setting and not having to have room service or sit alone in a restaurant. The staff have always been very kind and helpful. My trip involved a conference at Mount Sinai Hospital which was a short cab ride away in the morning, and a reasonable walk back to the hotel in the evening. The hotel is two blocks away from the CN Tower, one block away from my favourite restaurant (Canoe) and walking distance from the St. Lawrence Market. Across the street is Union Station for the subway and the hotel is part of the underground PATH system for shopping, etc. I always stay here, for all these reasons when I am in Toronto.

Toronto's Royalty

The hotel was beautiful and was conveniently located in downtown Toronto. The rooms are spacious, closets were small and no drawers to put your close. The rooms were newly renovated but smelled like cigarette smoke. The Hotel had great restaurants and some nice shops. Overall it was a beautiful place and I would recommend it.

Very nice interior

Unfortunately, it was surrounded by construction, so sort of looked like I was staying near ground zero. It is located right across the street from union station, though. The city reminds me so much of my home town, Chicago.

Everything was amazing. I always felt like it was too fancy for me to stay there. I was wrong- I felt welcomed from the moment I arrived. Highly recommended!

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.

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...
