This is a great opportunity to be the first to review the Fairmont Royal York hotel. I have often stayed at this hotel on my visits to Toronto and would recommend it to anybody. It has plenty of amenities to suit everybody, restaurants, bars, sauna, pool, shops, cafe's. You can ride the "rocket", (subway) to the uptown district without even going outside. There is also the underground shops which stretch for several blocks. This makes the hotel very central even thought it's downtown. The is also Union Station directly opposite, very handy. One fabulous place to stay.
