The Royal York, which officially opened in 1929, is one of Toronto's grand dames of hotels. Back then, it was the tallest building in the British Commonwealth and was considered the benchmark-setter of hospitality standards. It was given a huge, $100 million update that started in 1988 and went until 1993, restoring the hotel with refreshed guest rooms, a health club, and sky-lit lap pool. After more than 40 million guests, the hotel is currently undergoing a new, multi-phase, multi-million dollar renovation plan. You'll still find the hand-painted ceilings, travertine pillars, crystal chandeliers, and ornate furnishings, only with an additional 300 rooms, updated health spa, and HDTVs in every room. Across the street you'll find the newly refurbished Union Station, and down the street the CN tower, Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, and the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, should you like to venture farther afield.
