I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and am more than satisfied each time. The location is perfect, right off the subway and walkable to everything you need downtown Toronto. The rooms are spacious and very clean/well decorated. Our view
was towards Dundas Square, and the large windows gave us the best sight to look at waking up. Would highly recommend One King West for a classy, comfortable stay.
Stayed here twice. Great location, nice lobby. Rooms in new tower are nicer than those in old bank tower with great views from high floors.
Do go to Niagra Falls either renting a car or taking a tour, concierge can help.
We stayed only one night while in Toronto for a Christmas Concert. Our room was small, but perfectly compact, I could have stayed for days!
We used the underground PATH, which is accessible from the hotel lobby. The PATH isn't well marked is some
places, so bring a map from the hotel lobby. It is conveniently located near many restaurants, shopping and ATM machines. We walked underground all the way to the concert venue, RTH, on a December night, it was nice to be out of the cold.
This hotel was built over what was previously a bank, so check out the safe in the basement! Excellent location, walking distance to most places and connects to the path. Had a problem with the room initially, having upgraded to a superior room as
we were staying six nights and wanted a room with a view, we were put in a room that overlooked an office block ten feet away from the window. Complained to the front desk, and after a couple of hours wait they put us in a better room. Good facilities in room, fridge, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave and two ring hob, though not enough chairs.
Nothing beats the central location of One King West. I have stayed here more than once when I attend the Toronto Film Festival, because it is so close to the festival venues. The 'suites' are a bit scrunched and could use a little more space, but
this is a high echelon establishment, with very professional service, impeccable cleanliness and a hip, trendy vibe. It is also priced at the high end, compared to hotels in the same city neighborhood, but that comes with the image that this place carries and maintains.
Hotel is beautiful, staff is very nice and location is perfect: centrally located to a lot of great things in downtown Toronto. Breakfast buffet is very good but pricey. For a family, the cost could add up rapidly. In-room internet access is
available but expensive. Public areas in lobby for free wifi can get crowded, especially with the bar located right there. Let's face it: in today's world, free wifi is like oxygen and water - customer's just expect it in their rooms. If airports can do this, so can hotels. Wifi and the pricey buffet drag their rating down to 4 stars.
Love the mini kitchen in the rooms. The other major perks are:
- washer / dryer
- separate stand-up shower and tub
- room sizes
- lots of storage for luggage
- nice full size mirrors on the storage unit
- hotel staff was extremely courteous and
The only down sides (which wasn't a deal breaker for us) are:
- the small vanity in the bathroom, not much room to put your bathroom stuff.
- beds are a little on the smaller side
I've stayed here twice and would stay again. Try to get an upper floor room if one is available. I purchased an upgrade and had a fabulous lake view. Staff were friendly and helpful. I did have to request clean sheets after 2 nights there, but
they accommodated the request quickly. The location is in the financial district, but very central to subway system. It's quite close to the waterfront, which offers many activities in the summertime. (Toronto Island is delightful -- a bit like going on vacation a 10-minute ferry ride from town.) I like this place a lot.
