Fairmont Royal York Hotel review Rate it

When it opened in 1929, this was the largest and tallest building in the British Empire. Although it's now dwarfed by banking towers, the hotel's castle-like exterior still merits its royal name (as does the fact that three generations of England's royal family have napped here). Chandeliers and a decorated ceiling in the sumptuous lobby set a tone of regal awe (which is impossible to match in the rooms, where the once-spectacular lake views have been marred by a row of condo towers). The design of the EPIC restaurant shows grudging acknowledgement that the world has grown hipper (though, to please the traditionalists, it still serves a high tea every day). The gorgeous wood-panelled Library Bar serves a mean Margarita.
