Everyone has those mornings when they wish they could wake up in a luxury hotel, be treated like royalty, and have a spread of delicious room service eats handed up to them. And for most of us, this will always be a dream that’s slightly out of reach.
You don’t need to fly halfway across the world to soak up historic opulence, bask in warm hospitality, and relax in contemporary accommodations — you can do that right here in Toronto at the iconic One King West Hotel.
Located at King and Yonge, the hotel is housed in an Ontario heritage building and combines the grandeur of Canada’s banking past with the latest in modern comforts. In fact, the building was previously the Dominion Bank HQ, with architecture dating back to 1914.
During your stay, marvel at the original Vault which has been preserved in the lower lobby (once considered the safest bank vault in Canada), as well as the immaculately detailed ceiling in the Grand Banking Hall, which is now a stunning space to host weddings and events.
The beauty of One King West Hotel is that it connects you to downtown attractions, the entertainment and shopping districts, within minutes. Whether you’re enjoying a staycation for a special occasion or to see a show, Scotiabank Arena, St. Lawrence Market, Distillery District, Rogers Centre, and Eaton Centre, are close by.
When it comes to your room, you have two choices: a historic or a tower suite.
You’ll find the historic suites nestled in the historical section of the hotel and they’re home-inspired with sophisticated features. Over in the ‘Sliver’ 51-storey tower, you’ll find some of Toronto’s most extraordinary suites with lake and landmark views offering a vantage point high above the city streets.
All suites are designed with extended stays in mind, offering convenient features such as an in-suite kitchenette with laundry (upon request), tall ceilings, chic bathrooms, and designer décor throughout.
Of course, a stay at one of Canada’s most elegant hotels wouldn’t be complete without a dining experience at Teller’s Bar and Lounge, the restaurant and bar onsite. Immerse yourself in the bar’s lively and vibrant atmosphere as you make the most of daily specials on offer (notably, Thursday’s buck-a-shuck oysters).
The restaurant features offerings from Executive Chef Sevilla, that you’ll want to try. We’re talking about their Candied Canadian Bacon Clothesline — a clothesline with three thick-cut slices of candied bacon brought to your table and torched in front of your eyes.
This bespoke culinary experience lets you take in the smell of the glaze as it’s candied in front of your eyes before you cut off slices and taste the goodness for yourself.
If you’re looking for a spot for after-work drinks or somewhere to catch up with friends, Teller’s is just the spot, and there’s also live music every Thursday from 6 to 9 pm.
