About Us

Welcome to Fairmont Royal York – a landmark event destination in Toronto for more than 90 years.

Our dedication to service excellence shows – we’ve proudly hosted Toronto’s most distinctive  gatherings since 1929. Fairmont Royal York’s award-winning culinary team combined with recently renovated ballrooms that continue to uphold the status of the city’s most historic spaces, deliver elegant events that are remembered for years to come.

Refreshed meeting and ballrooms that feature historic murals and designs from our country’s iconic provincial landscapes, are paired with the talents of jW Foster, our Executive Chef and his brigade of chefs. The authenticity of this top team at the helm of the largest hotel culinary operation in Canada bring these unique settings to life with inventive cuisine featuring authentic recipes and world-class cooking techniques.

It is our pleasure to offer you menus, featuring local and organic ingredients that cater to a range of dietary needs including vegetarian dishes, gluten free and more. The hotel has longstanding relationships to ensure access to the country’s highest-quality food and beverage products and provide you with the most responsibly produced options for your event. The hotel is proud to be 95 per cent Ocean Wise by purchasing from responsible fisheries, a part of the 100KM Foods Inc. group, a member of the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, and be certified by Feast On of Ontario. We are also fortunate to have a working rooftop garden that allows our culinary team to utilize what’s harvested in our dining venues. This urban oasis is also home to our apiary where we house seven working hives that produce 350-400lbs of honey a year, used as sweet treats and gifts for special guests throughout the year. Your meeting will matter to the planet when you choose a venue that also chooses the planet.

Quality beverages are the finishing touch of any event. Fairmont Royal York is a proud supporter of  VQA wines – Ontario’s Vintner Quality Alliance. We continue to recognize quality wines from Ontario  and across Canada, and recently received the VQA Award of Excellence. With the recent addition of Rus Yessenov, Director of Mixology, the breadth of our beverage program has been enhanced to include casual beer-tasting dinners and elegant champagne offerings while also including an  array  of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.

For more than 90 years, great food, beverage and exemplary service has been essential to our offering. We’re pleased that you are considering our renowned banquet venue and our Conference Services and Catering Managers look forward to working with you to create a distinctive and memorable experience.
