Fairmont Royal York, Toronto, Ontario $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
With 1,365 rooms, plus bars, restaurants, and shops, this vast Toronto landmark feels as self-contained as an ocean liner. Guests staying on the elite Gold Floor enjoy a private lounge, concierge, separate check-in and checkout, free Continental breakfast, cocktail-hour canapés, obsequious service, and other perks. Dining options open to all guests include the Benihana Japanese steakhouse and the EPIC restaurant, which serves sophisticated French-inspired cuisine using local ingredients at every meal from breakfast through dinner, including tea (served from 2:30 p.m.–4 p.m.). Thursdays are Tea & Tarot days: a "Certified Grand Master of Tarot" will predict your future.
