The hotel is in a great location, right opposite the main railway station which now has a direct line to the airport. There are plenty of restaurants a short distance away. Note, you will find bottled alcohol for public sale difficult to find so do check with the doorman for directions to the nearest outlet. The public areas of the... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Royal York. Great location across from Union Station and a short walk from the Rogers Center. Close to shopping and restaurants. This is my second time staying at the Royal York. Staff always very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean.

I stayed two nights at the Royal York. Excellent hotel. Great location near the train station and the airport express train. Good restaurants nearby. The cost was high, but the company paid for the trip.

A hotel I used to use regularly in the 80's, its standards are just the same, and so are the amenities. Benihana is still there in the evenings, and the Library Bar is still a great place for a light lunch. Staff are outstanding.

Whenever I travel through Toronto, I like this place to stay overnight. Service has been always good, and I also like the access to the gym. The concierge service is good and I have always been given accurate and excellent advice - being it for sport events or simply shopping.

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.
