Fairmont Royal York

The Fairmont Royal York is a luxury hotel in downtown Toronto. It is located on Front Street opposite the Union Station. The hotel is part of the chain Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, which operates example, the Château Frontenac in Quebec City. The hotel is connected to PATH, the underground city of Toronto.

The Fairmont Royal York was designed by Canadian architects Ross and Macdonald, and the architect Henry Sproatt and opened on 11 June 1929. With 124 meters (28 floors ), it was until 1931 the tallest building in the city and the tallest and largest hotel in the British Commonwealth. The hotel originally had 1048 rooms and has since its expansion in 1959 by an east wing around 1,600 rooms. The hotel is traditionally used Elizabeth II and the British royal family as an accommodation to their stays in Toronto. In these cases, a floor for the queen and her attendants will be reserved. The current hotel is at this point the third; it replaced the old Queen's Hotel.
