In my opinion, the Royal York hotel remains the best place in downtown Toronto if you are in town for watching sports. Recently stayed during the blue jays playoff run, and this was electric with support for them. Proximity to Rogers centre or the ACC is very close, and there is no shortage of great pubs/bars/restaurants in any direction from... More

My brother and I stayed here for a night on the town in T.O. Perfect location. Loved the grand foyer and learning about the history of the Royal York. It's very well kept, clean and comfortable. Super close to major stadiums and Entertainment district of T.O.

The staff could not have been more helpful. If they didn't know something they would go to find out. Should not charge for wifi in the rooms and make it free in lobby. The hotel is well appointed all over from lobby to rooms.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
