My favorite hotel during my recent trip to Toronto has to be the Fairmont Royal York located just across from union station. The hotel is right in the middle of the action. The Royal York is actually full of history and first opened in 1929. Definitely a landmark in Toronto!
As soon as you enter the lobby, you get that classic luxury style that always stands the test of time. What a wonderful personality.
After I valeted my car and checked-in, it was up to the 10th floor to see the room. The room was medium sized and had lots of quality components. The bedding was super comfortable! The bathroom had a marble counter top and was very bright. The hotel welcomed me with a few gifts! I liked the tower of desserts, cheese, berries and meat. I was hungry so I gobbled it all up, oops.
I had a beautiful corner room with an amazing view. From the window, I could look across and see the train station and out of the other window, I could see the CN Tower.
During my time at the Fairmount, I ordered room service. Their bison burger was heavenly. Not only did it look good, but it had a great taste. Another night I went for their chicken wings. Overall, the room service was great and very timely. I managed to eat dinner at their EPIC restaurant as well, but you’ll have to read about that in a separate article.
A great feature that I truly appreciated about the hotel were the gym and pool areas. The pool was incredible. The design and colors went together flawlessly. The gym had all of the equipment I needed to stay fit during my stay. I must mention their steam room! It was great and always nice and hot. Definitely one of my favorite places to be.
The Fairmont clearly took pride in offering a quality breakfast. I’d highly recommend breakfast in their EPIC restaurant, but you can also visit their Gold Lounge. The buffet had everything that I wanted, and it all tasted fantastic. The EPIC restaurant staff were always friendly and very kind.
Like most high-end hotels, the Fairmont has a club lounge along with special club rooms. It’s known as Fairmont Gold and includes extra privileges such as an exclusive breakfast, evening hors d’oeuvres and much more. Their Fairmont Gold lounge is gorgeous!
What really set the Fairmont Royal York hotel apart from others in the city was the service. The attention to detail was a step above. They must have a thorough hiring process because all of the employees at the hotel were wonderful. Very willing to help and always there when I needed them. It’s also important to remember that this is a huge property with tons of food and beverage options. If you want a truly luxurious experience, then I would highly recommend you visit the Fairmont Royal York hotel in downtown Toronto!
