    Recently married at 1KW

    We recently got married at 1 King West this past October. The hotel and Aileen in particular was very flexible with us when we had to scale down our 100-person wedding to 30 due to the pandemic. We were very appreciative of the flexibility, and the day was absolutely stunning. The hotel also took all the necessary safety precautions, which made our guests feel very safe. Everyone raved about the food and the atmosphere. Overall a truly perfect day!

    Winter Elegance in the Heart of the City

    I would highly recommend One King West for your special day! Everything was flawless and we received nothing but compliments from our guests about the food, the service and beauty of the Grand Banking Hall. Most said it was the best wedding they've been to!

    Our wedding coordinator, Vanessa, was very helpful and took the time to understand our vision for our wedding and was very flexible with our requests. She ensured that everything went according to plan on the big day. We did the ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner all in the same venue, which our guests really appreciated. Plus when the evening was over, they could go right upstairs to their hotel rooms. There are ample "insta-worthy" shots inside and I am so looking forward to receiving the professional photos soon.

    It was my dream wedding - elegant, candlelit and classy - I cannot say enough good things!

    Excellent and highly recommend!

    We are so happy we chose One King West for our wedding. It was everything we ever wished for. Aileen (the Wedding Specialist at the hotel) was so kind, and it was a pleasure working with her. Everything flowed so nicely — we were able to have our ceremony, cocktail and dinner reception all at the hotel. Our family and friends raved about the food and drinks, and had a great time. We would definitely recommend booking your wedding here.

    Perfect!

    My Husband and I had our wedding at One King West this past June. Everything was PERFECT!!! The whole staff was friendly and attentive not just to the wedding party but the whole guest list. Every guest had a great story. From the bellhops to the concierge to Aileen who coordinated everything. The space is amazing, its both grand and welcoming. The food was all fantastic. Even all the little touches before and after that made us feel so special and glad that we picked OKW. The event went off without a single hitch, they are a well oiled machine. It was a fairy-tale wedding!
