Great location, amenities

Spent 5 days at One King, and we enjoyed it greatly. This is a split condo/hotel, so I think things are a little strange on the service side. The room (Superior Suite, King Bed) was almost too much. It is the only way to get on the upper floors and we asked for a city view (lake view other choice), and they obliged. Room had stove top, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. This is the cross-over so it can be rented as a condo. But made for nice living. Car parking is by valet only, and since it at the edge of the financial district, not many other choices. At $30.00 a day, pricey. Could do better on that rate, and it takes 15 min to retrieve your car, so call ahead - but it never was a problem. Two gripes I have with this hotel. One and most important was the cleaning staff. Towels were left on floor, picked up but not replaced. Sheets were not changed in 5 days. I know this b/c of the coffee stain on a pillow and the main sheet we caused... Also, we had to call the front desk for more TP, as we ran out- they brought 1 roll! That was a bit stingy, I though. Second, lobby amenities. No real restaurant in hotel. Buffet-style breakfast and sandwich, small platter plates available in a quite small dining area. Bar is small, but very accommodating, coming to you at couches and chair spread across the lobby. News-stand in East entrance is privately run, and only has VERY basics. Overall I would recommend this hotel, it was reasonably priced and very nice. Also, one other thing. Although we did not watch much TV, flat-screens are so cheap now that a room with a conventional tube TV looks out-dated and the features/sound/picture quality was poor.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Check out Bloor and Spadina Streets on West side of U of Toronto. Cool little shopping area with unique things. Then take in a lunch on the W side of Spadina, just past the really ugly discount store you can't miss on your right. Make a right back towards your hotel, in the middle of a cute residential neighborhood, several cafes and pubs that serve outstanding food/bev, reasonably priced!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

everything is a short walk from the hotel (between 1 and 6 blocks) and if you can't walk you can catch a street car, trolley, taxi, bus or subway (entrance directly in front of hotel). nice Moroccan restaurant Sultan's Tent, right before you get to St. Lawrence Market on Yonge St.

Great location!

The location was absolutely perfect and the staff was excellent - very helpful. The room was very nice and kept well. The one complaint was that the air conditioning unit was really loud, but all in all I would go back there in a heartbeat.

Really nice!

I stayed at OneKingSt. because it was less expensive than the conference hotel. Nice location, very comfortable, had a nice kitchen and even a washer and dryer. Sound proofing was good, as was service. Wifi was free in the lobby. The fitness center was a tad disappointing, good equipment, just not lots of it and not all that accessible. Beautiful restoration of a historic building.

fit for a king

A most delightful trip. The staff were exceptionally helpful. Not only did they point out locations, but also walked us to the proper place and directed the cabbie the correct location to take us to. The Hotel was in a great location, within walking distance to things we had on our list to see. traveling in the city was easy and varied, lots of fun!! The double decker bus was a great way to see quite a bit of the city. Loved it.

Buy a ticket for the sight seeing bus, ride entire route then get off where ever you want and take your time to explore.Get the ticket when you first arrive and use it every day of your stay as a form of transportation.

Great Amenities for the Price!

Overall the hotel was great. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a studio room, but it was plenty big enough for two people. The design of the room was great, it was incredible they could fit a stove top, washer & dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster & coffee maker in the room. It was nice being able to use the washer & dryer, an amenity most hotels don't have. It would have been nice if the hotel provided wifi in the rooms. Since we use Apple Ipads, this was a problem. Wifi was available in the lobby but it was inconvenient to have to go to the lobby. The other main complaint is the $30 a night valet parking fee. One time when we called to get our car they told us there would be a 30 minute wait! However, most times they were very prompt about getting the car ready. The hotel is in a great location with a subway entrance right outside. There are also several restaurants in walking distance. The room service was a bit pricey. We paid $47 for a late night treat of macaroni and cheese and a chocolate cake. Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel and return in the future.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you get a chance go to a grocery store for some snacks you could save a lot of money on the high priced room service. The hotel comes equipped with a refrigerator, stove top, toaster, coffee maker but on our first night we were hungry and didn't have a chance to find a store. We ended up paying $47 for a bowl of macaroni and cheese and some chocolate cake.

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.
