My husband and I came here for our anniversary. The spa was clean and well maintained. The water therapies area wasn't too busy.

The place is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, BUT I was very surprised to see so many people with cell phones inside the Spa, which was packed!. Annoying music too loud. Girls talking loud like if they were in a sorority reunion. I would've left but I had to wait for my massage appointment, which... More

Just returned from the this Sept 20/15. I frequently visit other SPAs in the GTA area and what was surprising to me was a few items worth noting.

Oasis in the heart of Toronto. The spa has great RMT's on site with two different areas with pools as well as a steam room. The showers, hair dryers and curling irons are an added perk. There are many different options for spa treatments which is also another perk.

The Elmwood Spa is my 'go-to' spa in Toronto and I've been there many times. The services are very reasonably priced, especially considering the spa's location, as well as its size and number of amenities. The spa can definitely be busy and for that reason I don't find it to be as quiet or relaxing as more upscale spas in... More

We decided to go to this spa after seeing comments online and I saw it was ranked in the best spas in Toronto. I have to admit that the massage was good even though the therapist was delayed for the appointment. However, we felt the facility was old and looked not as fresh as pictures show. The pool and baths... More

Fantastic day at a fantastic place. The whirlpool in the women's change room was not only is it beautiful but the water pressure and temperature were wonderful. Everything is so clean too. Swimming pool and steam room were great and the spa services were first rate. Really, really impressed. Highly recommend stopping in and zoning out.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
