There’s no place like home for the holidays.
This holiday season, Toronto’s iconic Fairmont Royal York is ready to deck your halls with their ultimate Royal Holiday Experience package
Lucky guests will spend two nights in the 2,400 square-foot Royal York Suite, kitted out with holiday decor by designer Frank Rea. Welcome amenities include hand-painted chocolates and white chocolate shortbread, best enjoyed in robes embroidered with Mr and Mrs Claus (yours to take home, of course). Turndown amenities are in the same Santa-approved vein: housemade gingerbread body scrub and bath bombs, and DIY Gingerbread house kits and hot chocolate mix. In-room treats (for the kids-at-heart) consist of themed cocktails and a welcome bottle of Dom Perignon 2008 (Santa has excellent taste). If you want to leave the suite—though the above makes the case for staying put —the package also includes dinner at REIGN, drinks at CLOCKWORK, and holiday-themed afternoon tea. You can also enjoy Christmas cocktails at gleefully kitschy Thirsty Elf pop up bar.
Your stay includes premium passes to the Christmas Market, front-of-line passes and skate rentals at Union Station’s Winter Market. Or you can check out the market from a different angle: via a three-hour private “Santa” flight that whisks guests over the Toronto skyline, over the Aurora Winter Festival, and finally, to Niagara to marvel at the lights.
Capture the festivities with a private photo shoot in the hotel’s life-sized gingerbread house, with in-suite hair, make-up, and styling sessions, the latter with the help of a CAFA award-winning stylist and a $1,000 gift certificate to the Toronto Eaton Centre.
For a slightly less over-the-top experience, the Fairmont Royal York has partnered with the Toronto Christmas Market for festive packages starting at $295. Each will include one night’s stay, two jump-the-line passes to the market, Ferris wheel tickets and vouchers for warming drinks.
