Fairmont Royal York's Chateauesque style would fit under the Beaux Arts umbrella, not so much Art Deco... although the eastern expansion was constructed during the end of the Art Deco era.

He wasn't calling it art deco, he was stating the source where he found the photo, artdecostyle.ca.

Canada's railroad hotels, especially the chateau-style ones, are amazing. I wish Windsor had one.

For Detroit, I'd say the Book-Cadillac is probably the grandest of the hotels in the city that were built as hotels. When completed, it was the tallest hotel in the world. It was reopened in 2008 following extensive renovations after being abandoned 24 years. Today it has 455 hotel rooms and 67 prestigious condominiums on the upper floors.

Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Montreal.
Built in less than a year during 1958, it is the first modern of the canadian railway hotels.
