Fairmont Royal York

Hand-Picked Hotel

Historic and elegant downtown landmark that boasts a prime city location

This graceful and iconic hotel provides all the facilities and services you could ever expect of a luxury hotel in a world-class city. Originally opened in 1929, an extensive multi-million-dollar renovation was undertaken in 2019 which has afforded the hotel a whole new lease of life. The Fairmont Royal York has also been featured in many blockbuster films, including Serendipity and Mrs. Doubtfire.

With its striking grandeur and lavish atmosphere, there’s certainly a lot to choose from at the Fairmont Royal York. There are over 1,300 guestrooms and suites spread across 18 floors, and on the ‘H floor’ you’ll find the hotel’s Health Club which has a skylit indoor swimming pool, a whirlpool, steam room and sauna. On the 14th floor there is an urban rooftop garden which was one of the first in Canada; this enables the hotel to have flavourful herbs, home-grown organic vegetables and edible flowers. It is also home to over 300,000 bees and the honey produced is used within the restaurants at the hotel and sent to a local brewery to make an exclusive ale which is sold only at the hotel.

Local Area

You can’t really beat the Fairmont Royal York’s location, in the heart of downtown Toronto and right opposite Union Station – from where a 25-minute ride on the UP Express can whisk you to the airport.

This grand old hotel was originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway Corporation as a ‘railway hotel’, so it’s the perfect place to stay if you’re heading on an epic trip across Canada aboard ‘The Canadian’ such as that featured in our popular ‘Trans-Canada by Rail’ independent tour.

It is located above PATH, a network of underground pedestrian tunnels, shops, restaurants and more which connect the city. The perennially popular CN Tower is just a 10-minute walk away and the harbourfront and Lake Ontario is just 15 minutes away. The buzz of Yonge Street, Dundas Square and the world-class shopping at the Eaton Centre are also within easy reach.
