In its heyday, the King Edward was the hottest spot in town—originally opened in 1903, Everyone from Mark Twain to Louis Armstrong, Elvis Presley, Earnest Hemingway and Britney Spears has slid beneath its very fluffy sheets. Back in 1964, 3,000 screaming fans caused a riot after discovering that The Beatles were staying in the royal suite. That same year, rioters were back at it, this time causing a ruckus after finding out that Liz Taylor and Richard Burton shared a suite with each other instead of their respective spouses. The Eddie is gearing up for another riot this year, following the announcement that that legendary Crystal Ballroom will reopen I early 2017 after a $6.5 million renovation (on top of the $40 million renovation that the hotel’s 301 oversized rooms have undergone). If you’re seeking true, celebrity-like Toronto elegance, this is the place for you. From $279 per night
