"One of my favourite hotels in Toronto"
I love how unique this hotel is, and that it's upscale without being intimidating. It's classic and classy, and it's staff were so friendly; having stayed at many different hotels in Toronto (Trump, One King West, Delta, etc.), I can say that the King Edward beats them all. The only room for improvement would be its bathrooms. They're nice but, if you're looking forward to a luxurious soak in your room, it's only fair to middling for basic rooms. Otherwise, so lovely.
This is the 2nd time our company has stayed at this hotel for our team meeting in the past 2 years. We had an excellent stay, all staff are friendly and professional at all times. This time we stayed in the Royal Suite, this is an excellent space for a comfortable meeting, and very luxurious. The food is excellent, we had the salmon, chicken and steak - all delicious! Our company would definitely stay here again in the future.
Staff rates a 10 - everyone greets you and is very friendly and helpful A little on the pricey side - but worth it. Rooms are spacious and luxurious Location close to all areas. Very quiet hotel Hop on Hop off bus stop is right across the street from the hotel
"Stay at Omni King Edward"
Excellent stay. Rooms are classic and large. Service is prompt and friendly. The whole experience was seamless. I would suggest a supply of umbrellas for the use of guests. Toronto does rain and the complete absence of complimentary umbrellas is an oversight.
"Great Renovation - Almost a 5 but a few improvements needed"
In it by itself this is almost a 5 - the rooms and the entire hotel have been beautifully renovated and are enormous, the location is fantastic, and on the 12th floor facing the back, no street noise whatsoever. I normally stay at the Park Hyatt (North Tower) so a few minor issues in comparison. Overall would recommend it - and skip the parking at the hotel and and just park at the building across the street (1 Toronto Street) for a fraction of the cost. The improvements needed: Doormen - the doorman upon arrival had absolute no interest in engaging with us. Stopped in front of the hotel, clearly out of town, and he just looked at us and never came over. Luckily a very nice bell boy was there and came over to us to help with the luggage. He just stood there and at one point just turned his back to us. I had to retrieve the car keys from him later, and he essentially never said a word. Throughout the 3 days it was the same lack of engagement from the front door staff as though we were invisible. Noise - the room was enormous, but I could hear the doors slamming in the hallway - not the greatest starting at 7am. The fan was also somewhat noisy, but ear plugs are provided in the room Club Room - i paid extra and opted for the lounge access which is not really worth it. Unlike other lounges, the lounge is open 24 hours but there are no beverages freely available outside breakfast, afternoon break and cocktail hour. Even at those times you have to ask the attendant for a bottle of water. Breakfast was quite nice, break from 2pm-4pm they only had some cookies available, and i never made it for cocktail hour.
