No ice machines on the floors. Called front desk for ice to be sent to room. Waited 20 mins, then called a second time and response was "Oh, you called for ice?" Waited another 20 mins, went out for the night. On the up side, I left a pair of shoes behind in the room and the hotel was kind enough to mail them to me and cover the postage.

Got to the hotel on Fri. pulled my car up and the door man never even bothered to call for a bell hop. Carried the luggage myself. The hotel advertizes they have a fine selection of cigars. They don,t tell you they don't have anywhere you can smoke them. Had a bath about 10 pm.N o hot water. They put us in an ajoining room. The other room didn't check in until 12 pm. So for the next have hour, all we heard was click, click of the door. Even though the floor was half empty. They still put someone in the ajacent room. Payed $ 60.00 for bacon and eggs breakfast (FOR 2) Even though the hotel was not busy, I still had to wait 30 min. To get my car back from valet parking. ( $ 35.00 ). I sent 2 e-mails to the hotel, Still NO reply back. Save your money, This hotel is a 1 star pretenting to be a 5 star.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Royal Meridien King Edward Hotel

Loved the King Eddy

from A TripAdvisor Member
The King Eddy is a great place to stay if you stay in the Royal Club rooms, giving you access to a fantastic breakfast(all the smoked salmon and bagels you can eat for starters) and evening wine and beer and great appetizers. Great location and a fine bar(the consort) make a fine home base for Toronto business or pleasure. I wouldn't be as enthusiastic for a normal room, since the experience wouldn't be the same. We got a good summer promotion rate through expedia. We would go again.

Fair Value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from four nights at the King Edward. Secured our rate through the Le Meridien website -- a Deluxe King for $219 CAD the first night, $259 CAD for the second two nights (weeknights), including breakfast in the elegant Cafe Victoria and a late check-out. Our 15th-floor room faced north, was immaculately clean, and was large enough for two people to maneuver without any sort of bumped elbows. We pack light, which was good, because the closet space was limited. The bathroom was spacious and well-lit. The public areas of the hotel are quite plush. The concierge was friendly, and reception was also friendly-if-businesslike.

Very courteous

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were at the King Edward this past week.
The staff was wonderful, and the room was very clean and etc. But I felt there was much wasted space in the bathroom. Other than that it was a nice experience.

Go Royal Club

from PHW
My husband and I are frequent visitors to Toronto, and experts at finding bargain rates for top hotels. On both our stays at the King Edward, we found a great rate for the Royal Club rooms - a large and a regular. In addition to providing some of the largest hotel rooms we have stayed in, this category gives access to a fabulous continental breakfast every morning (the smoked salmon is out of this world) and wine and hors-d'oevres every afternoon at 5:30. It is my husband's favorite hotel - but choosing the top room category is crucial here. Decor is old-fashioned - but we historians find it charming! The Sunday Brunch at Cafe Victoria is unparallelled.

Very Average

from A TripAdvisor Member
Wasn't what I expected as the hotel had small rooms, and no atmosphere for what is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. Wasn't impressed. As stated very average.

Brilliant

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from Canada and stayed here for 3 nights. It was brilliant!

A beautiful building, the staff were great and the bar was outstanding (both the food and the drinks). Prices are excellent compared to England!

We stayed at Fairmont, Marriott & Renaissance hotels but this surpassed all of those.

Feel Like Royalty

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the king edward last week, for 3 nights and had a great time, the staff was so courteous, they could not do enough for you. we had dinner in the dining room, the meal was fit for a king.the room was bright and beautiful if you want to feel like royalty, give them a try.

Good Value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Picked up a bargin for 5 nights from 10th February 2004 - I paid just CAD600 for the entire stay. The room was large, maybe a little worn around the edges, but the hotel is very conveniently situated in the centre of Toronto. TVs are far too small for the size of the room, but otherwise this is a good hotel if you can get a reduced price on the published rates.

Just OK

from svicious22
This hotel wasn't bad as a total experience, but isn't as impressive as its 4 star rating might indicate. The staff were invisibly efficient and the lobby is impressive. Some areas of the hotel show their age, but all in all it's in OK shape for as old as it is. Location is decent but is a bit of a walk for those interested in nightlife and seems better suited to business travelers. The real downfall was the absolutely tiny room with a (non) view into an airshaft full of pigeons. This would have been a problem if we had paid anywhere near the published rates, but this was not the case. If room size matters to you, make inquiries.

Highly over-rated

from iamthespark
No good. Problems: 1. Dark room 2. Small room 3. Cold 4. No tables to eat on when we ordered room service.

All in all, not good.

Top Local Tips for Toronto

Richtree/Eggspectations There are two restaurants, Richtree, just south of hotel on Yonge (right near Hockey Hall of fame) Wonderful place, great variety fresh food fast made in front of you. We went for breakfast, but think it would be great for any meal. Eggspectations is also on Yonge, north of hotel attached to Eaton Centre. Absolutely fantastic breakfast.

girls outing. If you are on a shopping trip I would avoid the winter months.

King Street streetcars - link to the entire TTC especially to east end If you are trying to get to the east end from this hotel/area consider grabbing the King Street streetcar to Broadview Station (#504) - this bypasses the congested north/south Yonge line up to the very busy North/South/East/West junction
