Let's face it, the King Eddy has seen better days. I think the reason it gets such mixed reviews is that it has the look (from the outside and lobby) of a grand, five star property, but the rooms and facilities have not been kept up to five star standard. And, in fact, this hotel is only rated as four... More

Turned out to be the most expensive among Toronto hotels of Starwood network which I am a member of since 1998 and once was even a platinum one. The location was very convenient one and I chose the hotel. I had the room at the Club floor and was told that it was the better one. I think a motel... More

I was awakened at 1am but the noise of a large compressor that did not shut off until 5 am so needless to say I did not sleep. Spoke to the Manager of the Hotel in the am and he just shrugged it off - no offer to make up for a terrible nights sleep Service was very slow when... More

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a "Canadian Affair" package, total cost for the room being £188. The room was spacious but shabby, the bed comfortable. The low energy lightbulbs used in the bathroom meant that the lights had to be switched on about 10 minutes before my husband could see clearly in order to shave.I doubt whether anyone... More

We visited Toronto at the end of September and stayed at the King Edward. We were expecting a really traditional room and read some of the reviews of how "old" the decor was. Upon check-in, we were upgraded to an absolutely beautiful modern suite and had exceptional service to boot. We could not have asked for a better stay!

We stayed recently as a result of placing the highest bid in a silent auction. Our room was large enough, clean, but the furnishings are very worn, wallpaper is a bit shabby, not nearly as impressive as the lobby and grand ballrooms. The bed was very comfortable, great pillows. Hotel staff were gracious and welcoming, not snobby at all. You... More

We travelled by train to Union Station for a night in the city and chose this hotel for it's proximity to the train station, the Air Canada center and other venues. Our night was fantastic, starting with a short 15 minute walk from the station to the hotel. The hotel is an old beauty, much like the Royal York, quite... More

I recently stayed in Le Meridien in Toronto and the hotel is very well located very close to the shoping areas and quite a few of the attractions in the city. The hotel is well serviced by friendly and well informed porter's that dole out all types of friendly advice, directions, bars that show premier league matches. The hotel is... More

The service at the hotel was first rate. The check-process was smooth and the front desk clerk made sure that he found the best room for us. Our room was very large and spacious. The linens were first rate and the pillows were perfect. I thought the room itself could use a little updating. The carpet was threadbare and the... More
