Fairmont Royal York Hotel

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • A hallmark of the Toronto skyline -- a historic downtown building amid skyscrapers and tourist attractions
  • Steps 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

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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, across the street. 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 multi-story 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
