“Great property, well situated and very comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This property fits the bill in so many ways, staying in Toronto for a few days on business and judging by the breadth of clientele it is a popular destination for leisure travellers too. My only negative was that I was charged $10 a day for wi-fi which is extraordinary in today's hospitality providers. A small thing but it's verging on greedy these days to charge guests for something that will soon be free in city centres in almost every major city in the world. If there is a cost - and we all know there isn't - find a way to add it into the bill. (I should be writing about how good the rest of the experience was but this was the thing I remembered).

I booked the Austin Gallery for a workshop involving 25 people from across the country who travel to Toronto frequently. The hotel is close enough to the Gardiner, the GO and TTC so is very accessible, even though it's not as obvious to find as other Toronto hotels - by the way, that's a nice feature of this hotel. the Austin Gallery was perfect; a large, private room with three good sized rooms immediately off the gallery for break-out sessions. As part of the rental you also get to use the balcony that overlooks the gallery so you can move away from your working table for breakfast and lunch. The staff were wonderfully accomodating, the food was far superior to food we typically have at other Toronto-based hotel meetings, and the rooms were fabulous. Every room is a suite so you have a microwave, fridge, cooktop, and some dishes. They are larger than most Toronto hotel rooms and feel a little more like home. We went for dinner as a group down the street to Biff's Bistro, part of Oliver and Bonaccini chain, and were enchanted. Definately consider this for your next event or personal stay!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at One King West, from the welcoming staff to the cozy, comfortable rooms that allow you to relax and enjoy your stay. For a business woman travelling alone, it is a delight to feel comfortable sitting by yourself and enjoying a delicious bite and glass of wine at Henri's Bar, the staff make your feel at home and are extremely pleasant to the weary patrons at the end of a busy day. The breakfast buffet is wonderful with a great selection and the staff are quick with the morning java! Thanks for making my stay away from home enjoyable.

Booked a room with a jacuzzi for our wedding night. The initial booking was made over the phone and was booked for the wrong day. After contacting the hotel to fix the issue, the booking was changed to the appropriate date, with an upgraded suite and a much lower price. The suite was an extremely spacious 2 bedroom on the 45th floor, with a jacuzzi, balcony, and 180 degree views of the city. Thanks to the hotel for making our wedding night great!

This is a great location and I was quite impressed with the conversion results. it was well appointed and our room was large and modern.

The problem became evident as the late night revellers returned to their rooms - the acoustics appeared to amplify their voices rather than muffle them.

With lots of other options at this price point, my next stay in the city will be elsewhere.

My husband and I stayed here in August 2012. We were very pleasantly surprised with the location and services within and near the hotel. I would think this is perfect for a business traveller-- there is a ilttle kitchenette in each room and internet seemed to work well for the most part. Morning breakfasts were very tasty. Service from the staff very good, and everything we needed was nearby.

One thing that guests should be aware of is that this is was converted from Apartments so the layout on the hotel room floors is a little strange. Also, parking is not great, fully to be expected given the location, but should be considered when planning a stay in downtown Toronto. In fact, be sure to check in advance with the hotel if you need parking as it is very much a premium in that area.

My husband and I once again spent a few nights at One King West, and every time we stay there, we are never let down. This was the first time that I used the washer and dryer that is available in every suite, and it was so nice to be able to do so in the comfort of our own suite. The location is excellent, the service is very helpful and friendly, and the new upgrades to the lobby are very well done. I would stay there again for sure, there is so much to see and do in this neighborhood.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer a spectacular view of the City and Lake Ontario.
