    Thank You One King West

    I got married at OKW this month and am so happy to have chosen this wedding venue. Aileen and her team did a phenomenal job on (and leading up to) my wedding day.
    Aileen tended to every detail and was able to carry out all my requests without exception. She was flexible in customizing my wedding package to meet our needs, and was in regular communication with me, to ensure that all my expectations were met.
    My guests are still commenting on the food (from hors d'oeuvres to late night food station), the drinks (delicious signature cocktail and house wine), and the elegance of the venue. Thank you One King West!

    Dear Roshina,

    Thank you so much for your feedback from yours and Steve’s One King West Wedding. It was a pleasure to work with you both; from our first meeting and all the way to the day-after to ensure your dreams became reality.

    It's especially great to know how much you and your guests enjoyed Executive Chef Sevilla's delicious dishes. Him and his team have worked hard to perfect each plate and it's always rewarding to hear that their efforts have been recognized and appreciated!

    We hope to have you back in the near future to take part in more of your life's celebrations and milestones!

    The Most Gorgeous Venue with the Best Food!

    When we stepped into the Grand Banking Hall, we knew that One King West was the venue for us. Absolutely stunning and grand. We toured all the other ballrooms in Toronto, but nothing came close to the beauty of 1KW. We got married a month ago and we are still receiving compliments on the food and the venue. Everyone has told us that this is the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The steaks were done perfectly and the salmon and chicken were fantastic. What made everything better was our venue coordinator, Aileen Manta from 1Kw. She was so attentive, helpful and so wonderful to work with. She made sure everything was absolutely perfect and was extremely supportive. We could not be more thankful to her and everyone at the venue. Every person we dealt with-from the hotel staff to the bartenders and executive chef, was fabulous. And we cannot thank Aileen enough for everything she did for us. If 1KW is on your list of venues to see, go see it! It is more than everything we even hoped for. If photo locations are important to you as well, 1KW is amazing. Our sneak peek of photos in the vault/staircase/manager's boardroom are so fabulous. So many different locations with such a royal feeling. Thank you to everyone there. Our wedding was gorgeous. If you want any other info, feel free to message me and I can share our wedding video so you can see the venue all done up and recommend vendors.

    We planned our wedding in 2 months and all the smooth planning wouldn’t have been possible without the help of One King West’s wedding specialists, Anam and Angela. They responded quickly to all our questions and were gracious to all of our requests. On the day of the wedding, they delivered as promised. Food was impeccable and the staff were attentive and responsive. They even returned a couple envelopes that were found on the floor and immediately looked for the grooms lost jacket as soon as we notified them (which we late discovered was taken by our groomsman). Joseph, our wedding coordinator, ensured that everything was perfect. He went above and beyond our expectations in every possible way. We highly recommend One King West Hotel. We can’t thank them enough for making our special day so incredibly perfect!

    Absolutely dabulous

    My wife and I recently were married at this venue.

    From day one dealing with their staff (Angela) we immediately knew we were in good hands.

    She assisted us along the way and on the day of the wedding made our lives that much easier.

    The rooms, food, bar service, ceremony area and reception area were all phenomenal. My entire wife and I as well as all our our wedding guests were in absolutely shock at how stunning the venue was.

    We could not have asked for anything more. The entire staff was accommodating to any request and went out of their to help us with everything.

    A++++++ service all around

    A truly magical venue for a wedding

    We recently had our wedding reception in the Grand Banking Hall at One King West (June 2018), and we couldn't be happier with how the evening unfolded. I'm still pinching myself!

    The building is spectacular and exudes history and heritage. We had close to 240 guests for a seated reception dinner and it still felt very intimate, without feeling crowded. The food was delicious and was very well received by our guests. The room was stunning.

    A massive thank-you to Angela, Aileen and Renae. Angela and Aileen answered all of our (many, many!) questions leading up to the big day and were so gracious, friendly and helpful in the process. Renae went above and beyond to ensure our night ran smoothly and all of the guests and bridal party were enjoying themselves. They were all so organized with the set-up and tear-down and pick-up of materials the next day. We truly can't thank them enough for their incredible customer service and for making our day so special and unforgettable.
