The Omni King Edward Hotel was built in 1903 and was for decades the most elegant hotel in the city. The hotel retains an air of elegance and sophistication that is wonderful to experience. Located in downtown Toronto near Yonge and King Street West and immediately off the subway it is a great starting point for visiting the theatres, restaurants, St. Lawrence Market, Distillery District, Sports venues, etc.
The looby and rooms are lovely. Our room was well apointed and cute but somewhat dated. The hotel is in the midst of a major renovation and I was told that they expect to have all the refurbished rooms released by January, 18, 2015. If you plan to stay there prior to that date I recommend contacting the hotel directly and, if you want some r 'n r, ask for a room on a floor far from those being redone as the drilling and banging may be significant. We were at the hotel for our anniversary and hoping to sleep in but were instead awoken by construction around 7:40am. The hotel was kind enough to offer us a complimentary breakfast, and frankly, getting up at a reasonable hour helped us to get out the door and enjoy the neighbourhood.
The staff are exceptional. The doorman that assisted us has been there for 30+ years and knows the area like his backyard. The management and front desk staff were warm and welcoming.
In addition the price was very reasonable compared to other 4 star hotels in the city.
