“Will definitely go back to King Edward”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Though my room was a little "tired", it was all that it needed to be. The staff excelled at customer service, were attentive and prompt. And in all my travels (there have been a lot!!) this is the first hotel in a very long time that had the front desk call me 15 minutes after I checked in to see if everything was alright. Everyone greets you with a smile that feels sincere. Very conveniently located to the financial district, subway, PATH and local restaurants (both high end and cheap & cheerful).

This hotel is beautiful, elegant and classy. We stayed 1 night and was blown away with this historic building and gorgeous lobby. Check in was amazingly fast and pleasant. Erica was very nice and gave us a newly renovated deluxe room # 615. A gorgeous elegant room with a king size bed and the bathroom was unbelievable, the shower and water pressure was hot and powerful. The room was elegant and so so quiet, they also provided free keurig coffee and bottled water. Hotel is minutes away from all downtown attractions, bars and great restaurants. Just across the street there is a fabulous restaurant Beer Bistro, great beer, delicious food and great atmosphere. All in all, this hotel is a gem when planning your stay in downtown Toronto.

Room Tip: Ask if there are any newly renovated rooms available.

The hotel is located with access to many attractions. It is a beautiful hotel with pleasant and courteous staff. We stayed in a newly renovated room, which was large and comfortable. This is 5 star plus hotel at a 3 star price, especially given its location. Breakfast in the Victoria Restaurant was fantastic. Only downside is price of valet parking. Would definitely stay again.

My wife checked in before I arrived. She had asked reception for an updated room on TA advice, receptionist told her to first have a look at the current room and if it didn’t meet expectations to return and they would search for a renovated room. Upon entering we had received a Select Guest free upgrade to huge corner junior suite. Granted it wasn’t renovated but it was spotless and everything was in its place, desk by vestibule then huge room with full sofa, a chair and coffee table and fridge. Bath was large with window. My wife spoke to the turndown maid and was told all the mattresses are brand new no matter what room you stay in. During 3 night stay I would go across street every morning to Tim Hortons, pick up pastries and then we were able to enjoy it on sofa with free select guest morning beverage, nice way to save money, internet and newspapers also free for members. Turndown service included filled ice bucket and bottled water, also nice touch.
My wife had prepaid for afternoon tea saving 20% of regular price, while this wasn’t cheap, she and her guests really enjoyed it, especially since ambiance is nice. Can’t beat location, close to everything, plenty of restaurants, easy access to underground Path, and subways. Eaton Centre and catholic church 5 min walk (go to junior boys choir mass it’s fantastic). On the downside there is construction everywhere in downtown Toronto.

Evening before check out concierge desk arranged black car to bring us to airport next morning, so much nicer than a cab at minimal extra cost. While it would have been nice to be in a brand new room, the hotel and staff made a great effort in our upgrades so we have no regrets at all and look forward to visiting again.

I chose this hotel specifically for the Sunday brunch. It may seem a little expensive, but the food is excellent and there is a variety of choices to please everyone. I asked to stay in one of the newly renovated rooms in the hotel when booking. These rooms are beautiful and very spacious. There was a little mix up with a cheese tray that I asked to be in our room when we checked in, but the staff handled it very well and were eager to make sure that we had an excellent stay.

The King Edward is a grand old hotel that shows its years a bit, but it is clear that service is still a priority. The staff and management went above and beyond expectations to resolve an issue I experienced during my stay. The suite I was upgraded to was enormous, the bed was luxurious, the internet was rock solid (seriously, hotel internet is usually a scant step up from free airport wifi), and the loyalty program (Select Guest) is absolutely worthwhile. I would steer clear of the Consort Bar's cocktail program; the pub mix is delicious, but my drink was fairly expensive and unappetizing. All in all, a great choice for accommodations in downtown Toronto.
