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!

Love this hotel

I went to this hotel with my mother to celebrate Mother's Day. Before we arrived, the concierge was so incredibly helpful that I brought her a gift to thank her for her time. She arranged a rental car and gave me extra sets of directions for our adventures. Every person at the hotel was VERY helpful. Location is great right next to a subway stop and an easy walk to any area (entertainment district, China Town, Museums, the Distillary...). Numerous great restaurnants just steps from the hotel with reservations and recommendations from the hotel staff.We upgraded to the 2 room suite which was perfect for 2 independent people and would work great if it was a family traveling with small kids. Hotel has a town car service to take you to the airport for the same price as a cab. Would 100% stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

By booking [...] with a combined flight/hotel package we saved $750. Usually I only see things like "save $30 by booking hotel with flight." The savings was GREAT!

Try places around downtown and try the places that have rooftops, don't just look at the street level for food.

Good for business, not for pleasure

The location lends itself more to business than pleasure. Walking North to the Eaton Centre becomes tedious after a few visits, otherwise we were quite happy.

Fine hotel

Old bank with classic bones and wonderfully thick walls makes for quiet retreat. Staff responsive to needs. Lobby bar still being renovated but friendly service. Good choice with underground and trolley 2 steps away.

For a visual as well as gustatory delight go to Aria for dinner. It's between the Roger's Stadium and the Air Canada arena. A costly but worthwhile treat!
