Architect EJ Lennox, who also built Casa Loma and Old City Hall, sure knew how to show off. Guests look up in awe as they pass through the soaring marble columns of the four-storey lobby, overlooked by a portrait of King Edward VII himself. The King Eddie, as it's known to locals, is a designated historic building and retains all of its grandeur, from the original chandeliers to the high ceilings in the 292 sumptuous rooms. The business elite breakfast at the hotel's elegant Café Victoria. Although the hotel opened in 1903, it is up to date, offering wireless net access in the lobby and meeting rooms.
