My wife and stayed at the Royal Sonesta in Yorkville Toronto this Monday for a little holiday and a Blue Jays game. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff was so friendly and helpful., the room was perfectly setup and found a few chocolate goodies when we arrived. Such a nice touch. In the end the stay was perfect and when compared to other locations in Toronto I don’t think it can be matched. Obviously we will come back. Pat Espina, Fergus Ontario PS: Blue Jays won which made the stay even better.

Great location and very clean. Nice restaurant with excellent breakfast. Rooms were uncomfortably warm so had to run ac to sleep. Be sure to include facility fees and taxes when estimating true cost of staying here. Pool is lovely and definitely made our stay.

The stay was good. The young lady asked if I wanted an upgrade and said it would be 25 dollars - didn’t know it would be 50 total plus all the crazy “fees” they charge (see attached). This is a complete scam, they don’t explain any of these ridiculous taxes when you check in. Be sure to ask and maybe consider a Hilton property here which doesn’t do this. Was ok but lost me with the shady tax practices. Must be a Canada thing…

Very pleasant stay at the Yorkville Royal with friendly staff and rooms kept clean. Had a very spacious room on the fifth floor. Room service was excellent and the breakfast - which is a-la-carte - was very good. Would stay again for certain. Close to museums and other attractions.

Whilst I did not personally stay there, my girlfriend and her family stayed at the hotel for my girlfriend's 30th and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. As I could sadly not be there, I contacted the hotel in the hope that they could arrange a surprise to be delivered to my girlfriend's room on her birthday. I spoke with Toby Dublin who was incredibly polite, friendly and more than willing to help. Toby, along with Roxanne, delivered a lovely surprise cake to the room which was (obviously) very well received and earned some brownie points :) Thank you very much Toby and Roxanne, you were a pleasure to deal with

This hotel is very overpriced. The quality and attention to detail does not match the expense and it does not seem to be their priority. The hotel is very aware of their WIFI issues (which also impacts their TV service) but there was no mention of that. Even if you want to use your cell data to watch something (e.g. Blue Jays which was not available on their TV service) it is blocked. The fridges in the rooms have been de-commissioned and they are locked. If you want a fridge you have to call for a mini fridge to be delivered to the room - none of this is communicated at all. I am not sure how many mini fridges there are for the guests that would like to use one. Our curtains did not close fully and the food was below average. We were very disappointed. Many hotels do a much better job. Our response from the hotel was to come back and they would work to do a better job.

The hotel was fine; nothing to write home about. Nothing special. The rooms had a little Nespresso machine which was nice. However, the minibar/refrigerators were not stocked and inoperative. The sauna and steam room in the men's locker room were a treat and the pool was nice also. The bellmen were useless. After I unloaded my luggage unto the cart and rolled in and finished checking in, a bellman popped up to see if I need help. I saw this repeated various times while I sat waiting for people in the lobby. The lobby is sparse and seating is not particularly comfortable or conducive to conversations. The restaurant was super expensive and one day we went in desiring coffee and a pastry but were told the only breakfast option was the buffet at $30/pp. The location is good, but for probably not a particularly good value for the money. ONe bright spot however is one of the managers, Natasha. She was attentive and very kind to an elderly traveler in my party. She definitely went above and beyond in offering the best in guest hospitality services. As for hospitality, my room was not cleaned on one occasion during my visit despite my having vacated the room at 10 and not returning until about 4. Very disappointing Although it was a nice, comfortable and clean venue, I would only stay here again if the location was essential and if this hotel were the least expensive in the area.

The whole room was amazing and the staff made this my best birthday in a long time. I was gifted the room for my birthday to spend some quality time in the city I love. The staff were the high light of my stay. They were so friendly, welcoming and thoughtful. The room was comfortable, stylish and the view…. If you are coming to the city this is the place to stay. Thank you too everyone at the Royal Sonesta.

Great hotel, very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Staff friendly and helpful. Good location for us, although was quite a walk into main tourist area, but subway was close and easy to use. Traffic congestion was very bad outside hotel, so taxis were never a great option. The only negative was the lighting within the room - good for relaxing, but otherwise room seemed very dark, unless the sun was shining! Everthing was in good condition, except the carpet, which seemed a little worn. Would definitely recommend this hotel, and would be happy to stay here again if we ever returned to Toronto.
