Fairmont Royal York Hotel

Why We Love It

  • A hallmark of the Toronto skyline -- this historic downtown building sits amid skyscrapers and tourist attractions
  • Steps away from concert and sporting venues, as well as the CN Tower and Ripley's Aquarium
  • Easy access to both of the city's airports, and directly connected to the subway system
  • Unique commitment to the environment, with honeybee colonies on the roof -- offering ultra-local honey in the on-site restaurants

"The location is as good as it gets" -- Oyster.com

Map & Directions

The hotel sits directly across from Union Station. Transit to Pearson International Airport on the city's brand-new UP Express line is $27.50 each way and takes 25 minutes. A taxi to Pearson will cost approximately $70 and take 35 minutes. Billy Bishop Airport is connected via a free express shuttle that's five minutes on foot from the hotel.

Overview

In the days of rail travel, the Royal York Hotel was one of the first sights visitors to Toronto would see coming out of Union Station. With virtually the best downtown location possible for both business and fun, this hotel is steps from many iconic attractions and office towers in the financial district: a 10-minute walk will bring guests to the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium, the Air Canada Centre, the Rogers Centre and the Sony Centre. 

The hotel has an impressive multistory lobby with gilded trimmings. Past guests praise the consistently attentive staff, from the front desk to the valet to the concierge. Relax like an aristocrat of days past with a cocktail in the lobby-level Library Bar. Or, for a combination of dining and entertainment, visit Toronto's only Benihana location on-site. 

All rooms are styled to echo the hotel's elegant public spaces. Although many familiar attractions are within walking distance, the lobby is connected by an indoor path to the city's subway system. 

From the press:
  • "Today, it remains one of the largest hotels in the city and a favorite of royalty—both Hollywood's and the real deal" -- Fodor's
  • "When it was completed in 1927, the Royal York was the largest hotel in the British Empire and it still retains much of its original grandeur, especially in the sprawling lobby" -- Rough Guide
  • "The magnificent lobby is a fitting backdrop for the many heads of state who have stayed here" -- DK Eyewitness
