When the Fairmont Royal York opened in 1929, the cost to stay was a mere $2 p.p., at a time when a filet mignon would set guests back $1.25, noted Edwin Frizzell, regional vice president and general manager upon greeting the crowd gathered to ring in the iconic hotel’s 90th birthday.
Over the past four years, a $100 million investment has been made to transform and restore the property across common areas, meeting and event spaces, dining options and the suites of the Fairmont Gold experience.
Following the grand reopening of the lobby earlier this month, last night (June 24) the Fairmont Royal York celebrated in grand fashion with three parties in one night featuring a wedding theme accompanied by the Saraphina String Quartet, a fashion show curated by CAFA, a dance party to the tunes of the Montreal Rhapsody Orchestra and an impressive replica cake of the Fairmont Royal York. Here’s to the next 90 years!
