The centrally located One King West at the prestigious intersection of King and Yonge stands as a designated Ontario Heritage Building. At the time of its construction in 1914 it was one of the tallest buildings in Toronto at 12 storeys tall. And then in 2006 it reopened as a hotel and condominium residence with 51 storeys and over 300 suites.
Last week One King West unveiled their new executive hospitality suite, the Fifteen Hundred on the 15th floor. As soon as you walk in to this modern space you immediately notice the vast, open layout with the south-facing floor-to-ceiling glass wall that can be fully retracted. The wrap-around terrace is very large and inviting with sweeping views of downtown. I could spend many relaxing hours with friends out here. This is a unique, versatile space equipped for entertaining with a wireless touchpad controlling the lighting, drapery, wall-mounted TVs and audio.
One floor directly below there is also a new Fourteen Hundred suite that is well-equipped to be used as an off-site executive boardroom or for corporate training or as a dynamic party space.
And here’s the interesting thing: there’s a hidden staircase that directly connects these two suites, making this pair a unique and versatile two-storey space for entertaining, executive retreats, product launches and wedding receptions.
Also stay tuned with us as One King West Hotel & Residence celebrates their centennial anniversary in 2014 with an interactive “I Love Toronto” mural, weekly hotel prize packages culminating into a grand gala dinner at the Grand Banking Hall.
