Fairmont Royal York

The transformation of Fairmont Royal York will debut in June to mark the hotel’s 90th anniversary. Rockwell Group’s redesign for the public spaces is inspired by a journey from Toronto’s past through to its present, embracing and highlighting the building’s rich patina while adding a contemporary layer.

As a significant landmark of Toronto, both in history and in prominence, we wanted to cherish the hotel's history and bring the story of Fairmont Royal into the next era.

Given the hotel’s connection to the railway and Toronto’s Union Station, we took material, form, and detail cues from the aesthetics of train cars and railroads.
