    Hard to believe that the King Eddie's rooftop Crystal ballroom has been closed since the 70's, I hope Omni takes note and transforms this space into a rooftop restaurant and cocktail bar, I'm sure many guests / visitors to this historic grand dame would be more than willing to spent a couple of hours up there, especially with all the special views over Toronto I Presume.

    Not too long ago the hotel was with Starwood under their Le Meridien flag.

    This one was also RC at one time, right? Maybe in about 1995? Or am I confusing Montreal and Toronto, where I sort of know the university area and the Park Hyatt, including a bit of the stuff around it. (Is the modern "luxury" hotel almost across the street a Four Seasons?)

    The King Edward was also a member of LHW in the early 2000's.

    Maybe I remember it from its LHW days. I think I stayed there once when it had the aura of fading elegance and at least once as a kid.
