Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton and John Lennon and Yoko Ono are just some of the celebrity couples who have made the King Edward Hotel their home in Toronto over the years. Lennon and Ono even staged one of their infamous bed-ins for peace here in 1969, an honourable challenge for any couple. A designated historic property, Torontonians have fondly referred to this grand Edwardian hotel as the King Eddy since its opening in 1903. The hotel's glory slowly faded until renovations reshaped it in the 1980s and it retains much of its charm and romance today. Carved marble columns adorn the lobby, and high ceilings and large windows make the guest rooms seem even more spacious than they are. Make time for high tea on weekend afternoons, a King Eddy tradition since the 1920s. Or, you know, just stay in bed.
