The Royal York Fairmont is in a fantastic location. It is one of Toronto's oldest and most famous landmark hotels. When Queen Elizabeth comes to Toronto, she stays at this hotel. The hotel is within a 10-minute walk of just about most of Toronto's landmarks. The hotel is also joined to an underground walkway and shopping centre that you can explore for hours. It is also right on the subway system. If the weather is crummy, you can basically stay underground. It is very safe and has hundreds of shops and restaurants that stay open during business hours Monday to Friday. However, in May, the weather will be nice -- not hot but very nice. You will have a great time.
