Fairmont Royal York, Toronto

Fairmont Royal York is a beacon of luxury in what is truly a world-class city. From the moment you step through its doors into the resplendent lobby, you’ll feel your cares melt away. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the beautiful indoor swimming pool for some laps or perhaps a soak in the Jacuzzi. You can soothe away those sightseeing aches and pains in the steam room, then dress up and meet for pre-dinner drinks in the Library Bar, which sparkles with old world charm.


A grand landmark in the beating heart of downtown Toronto, the hotel is a whisker away from the city’s biggest attractions such as the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada and the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. It’s a sports fanatic’s paradise; whether your game is at the Roger’s Centre or the Air Canada Centre, you’re exactly where you need to be. And don’t forget, Niagara Falls is only 80 miles away.


Following a five-year multi-million dollar renovation, the rooms at the Fairmont Royal York are the absolute pinnacle of luxury. Mixing lavish fabrics with monochrome chic, the wide selection of rooms available means there is something to everyone’s taste. Naturally, however, each and every room features soft lighting and extremely comfortable beds. We like.


Sometimes we grow tired of new-fangled concepts and find ourselves desperately craving some traditional grandeur, the kind it’s worth dressing up for. That’s when we book to the Fairmont Royal York. After a few nights of waking in a sumptuous suite to views of Toronto’s skyline and the ultimate breakfast in bed, we always start feeling better – and so will you.
