The Fairmont Royal York was built in 1929 on the grounds of what was once the Queen’s Hotel and was intended to be the largest hotel in the Toronto area. When the hotel was purchased by the Canadian Pacific Railway, they declared it would be the largest hotel in the Commonwealth, and for good reason: it featured 28 floors, 10 elevators, 1,048 rooms, and had private bathrooms. There was even a hospital, a concert hall, and the largest hotel kitchen in Canada. It was considered a city within the city. Renovations throughout the years have increased the number of rooms to over 1,300 with the addition of the East Wing, an indoor garden was created to supply the restaurants on site with fresh ingredients, and opulent touches were added throughout. The hotel has seen over 40 million guests in its time, including members of the British Royal Family and famous celebrities. Locally, Fairmont Royal York is in a great location. The convention center and CN Tower are within a three-block radius, while the local dining options featuring dynamic, diverse dishes are nearby. Those seeking artistic inspiration can visit the Royal Ontario Museum, which has over six million artifacts, or the Art Gallery of Ontario, with more than 80,000 works. In just under two hours, guests can be at the majestic Niagara Falls and admire one of North America’s greatest natural wonders.
