My stay at the Omni King Edward was among the most pleasant hotel stays I have ever had. The staff were kind, courteous and very friendly. The room was beautiful and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Lots of room to manoeuvre around in the room and a comfortable desk and chair to sit at to do some work. I will definitely consider staying here again for future trips.
We stayed here for 5 nights in November. The service was excellent, as it is in Toronto in general. Rooms are large, foyer is impressive. We found the heating system slightly off putting as it is a warm air system which, when it comes on is very loud. Took us by surprise in the middle of the night! Mini bar is noisey as well.
Bed was comfortable.
Food in the restaurant is of a very good quality, although expensive.
The location is very good.
