TORONTO, December 18, 2012 – Next year will mark the 110th anniversary of Toronto’s King Edward, a Skyline Hotel and to celebrate, the hotel is offering an exclusive limited time offer from $110/night for bookings made by December 31, 2012 for stays from January 1 through January 31, 2013.

The King Edward Hotel was constructed in 1903 as Toronto’s first luxury hotel, setting the standard for upscale hotels in Canada. Founded by George Gooderham, one of Toronto’s wealthiest men at the time, The King Edward Hotel was built at a cost of $6 million in a time when the city was undergoing massive development.
The property was considered a destination for visitors and Torontonians alike – boasting an impressive art collection and several restaurants and parlours where business men could meet, while ladies passed the time on the exclusive women’s-only second floor.
In 1921, an 18-storey 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 chandeliers, which served as the backdrop for many functions, society weddings and special announcements.
Today The King Edward Hotel is a model of graceful Canadian elegance and time-honoured tradition. More announcements regarding celebrations and events at the hotel in honour of the 110th anniversary will be made in the coming months.
