Pretty nice hotel

Overall the hotel was just what we needed. Our room was on the 6th floor with atrium view[...]. Direct access to Toronto's underground Path walkway and shops. Also, the subway is right across the street, as is a drug store, Starbucks and Subway resturant. 4 stars is about accurate for our experience. The bed was a bit stiff, but the comforter was perfect. Our dryer was quite loud the only time we used it, but it wasn't bothersome. We were able to watch a movie in our room that was still in the theaters(14.99 + tax). We were given an internet access code for the wired internet in our room (cord provided) for free, which was very nice. There is free wireless internet in the lobby.

Very Solid

Spent two nights over New Years Eve for a quick get away. The location is pretty much perfect for downtown Toronto. Two blocks from the Eaton Center and a quick walk up to the Nathan Philips Square for the NYE celebrations. The price was reasonable [...]and we enjoyed our stay. Some thoughts... - A little odd that lots of students seem to live in the building. It got kind of loud every now and then, but part of that might have been the fact that it was New Years Eve. - Pool was small and out of order. - We parked at a garage on the corner of Church and King for less than half of the cost of parking at the hotel. - Great location, couldn't have been better.

excellent value

Hotel restaurant was very good. The room not only had a mini washer and dryer, but a dishwasher as well. Great for an extended stay at a reasonable price.

fabulous ocation

This hotel is in the middle of everything and super for reaching the underground walkway and subway. There are restaurants and shoping nearby. We had a studio which was big enough but had very few kichen utensiles and the bath is small. The lobby bar and restaurant is very loud and we tried to avoid it. however our room was totally quiet. We did not use the exercise room, but the view from there is great.

No better location

For business in the financial district, the location of the Suites at One King West couldn't be better. Everything's within a 5 minute walk, and the subway entrance is just out the front door. The hotel is connected to the underground PATH walkway system, and all the major banks' HQ are just steps away. I've stayed here many times before: you get a kitchenette unit, comfortable bed, good desk, and OK bathroom (not the Park Hyatt or Four Seasons, but not Motel Six either). They've recently upgraded amenities. This time, though, I had a room that looked into a dark atrium -- not the best room in the hotel but for all I was there, it was fine, and the price was right. Other rooms have great views, very high up, and the windows open, desks in the window nooks overlooking the lake.

JUMP is right out the back door of the hotel. Great food, great ambiance, and sitting outside on the patio on a warm summer evening was just wonderful.

Good choice for business or pleasure

I been coming back to One King West for some time now. The location is great and only few blocks from the Entertainment Districts to the west and Eaton shopping Centre to the north. This is not your regular hotel - it's actually residence hotel thus the look and service is a bit different. Rooms are equipped with a small kitchenette, including stove, dishwasher, and washer/dryer combo. Great an extend stay or somebody that likes to have those amenities handy (e.g. if you travel with small children). Unfortunately there is no concierge and the front desk team could not assist me. Also - skip the breakfast. It's too pricey for what you get and the buffet choices are not very appealing. I suggest Eggspectations - a great breakfast and brunch place north of the hotel and towards Eaton shopping centre. For lunch head south and across the streat to Irish Embassy Pub & Grill (great curry, choices of beer, and very lively) -- for dinner head to Huston's (great and very elegant stake house). Overall - it's a good hotel, modern and with amenities that you usually don't see in other hotels. Location is perfect. Service is good. Thumbs up!
