The Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto completed a $40 million restoration project that includes a renovation and modernization of its guest rooms, meeting spaces, lobby and restaurant. The hotel's 301 guest rooms received new furnishings, custom bedding and enhancements to its vintage crown moldings and bathrooms, while the lobby's historic decorative plasterwork on the ceiling and wood-paneled walls were restored. All 22,000 square feet of meeting space also was upgraded, including the Vanity Fair Ballroom, which was completely renovated, and the Sovereign ballroom, which received four new teardrop crystal chandeliers.
Omni Hotels & Resorts took ownership of the King Edward in fall 2013; the property initially opened in 1903. The hotel has two dining establishments and offers a traditional afternoon tea. Additional amenities include a fitness center, a salon and a spa.
