"Royal York Hotel, Toronto: A magnificent new hotel, the Royal York, is being erected at Toronto by the Canadian Pacific railway. Facing the Union Station, it will be the largest hotel in the British Empire, with about 1,100 rooms; one of the features will be the generous provision for holding conventions, it being possible to seat 4,070 people on the convention floor alone. The Royal York Hotel is expected to open in June, 1929."
