Fairmont Royal York

A taste of Toronto’s English past at this redoubtable old timer with serious staying power and serious class

Dating back to 1929, this colossus was then the largest building in the entire British Empire. Things have changed drastically outside the building since then but the atmosphere inside this elaborate exterior still exudes something of a long vanished Canada. There’s something irrevocably stately about the immense chandeliers and atmosphere of unruffled efficiency created by the staff. The rooms don’t quite match up to the splendour of the public areas but for a truly atavistic piece of sybaritic indulgence nowhere in Toronto pleases like high tea here followed by a potent martini in the wood panelled Library Bar.
