HISTORY OF THE OMNI KING EDWARD HOTEL 

Originally built in 1903 by Mr. George Gooderham – a developer and one of Toronto’s wealthiest men – at a cost of $6 million, the opulent hotel was intended to stem the tide of development that was moving toward the newly opened city hall at Bay and Queen Streets.

At the time, the King Edward Hotel was not simply a luxury hotel. Boasting an art collection that would be worth more than $75 million today, it was an exclusive destination where men enjoyed port and cigars in sweeping parlors while ladies sipped tea in the hotel’s elegant sitting lounges.

In 1921, an 18-story addition made the hotel one of Toronto’s tallest buildings. The 17th and 18th floors featured a lavish social venue, the Crystal Ballroom, named for its impressive crystal chandeliers. This stylish venue quickly became the place to see and be seen and served as the backdrop for countless society weddings, balls, and dances.

Today, The Omni King Edward Hotel is proud to keep the legacy of “the King Eddy” alive. We treasure this unique gem and continue to work toward restoring and preserving a regal icon of Toronto’s history.
