Toronto's Omni King Edward Completes Historic Restoration

The Omni King Edward Hotel - Toronto

Toronto's first luxury hotel, The Omni King Edward, has completed a $40 million restoration and renovation designed to modernize it while also reinstating its historic grandeur, Omni Hotels & Resorts announced this week.

Built in 1903, the 112-year-old King Edward hotel commenced renovations in fall 2013. Each of its 301 guest rooms has been redesigned with new furnishings, bedding, and marble bathrooms. The hotel's two restaurants also have been redone, as has much of the hotel's meeting space, including its three ballrooms and its 22,000 square feet of small to mid-sized meeting rooms.

"For more than a century, this beloved property has held the position of one of the most famous hotels in Toronto. There is a delicate balance between maintaining history, and keeping the beauty and elegance that makes a place like this so very special, while also becoming modern and delivering what discerning guests want and need today," General Manager Christophe Le Chatton said in a statement. "I believe we have struck this balance with stunning results, and I am proud to reintroduce The Omni King Edward in all of her splendor."
