We met with wedding specialist Aileen and she was very friendly and helped walk us through what the venue could provide and what options we had. She was attentive to our needs and accommodating on negotiations to fit the budget we had. Her attention to details and patience in dealing with us was very much appreciated. Having a coordinator who is reliable and attentive is super important for such an important day, so Aileen earned and justified our trust in her to ensure the wedding went smoothly.
The venue itself is beautiful. The banking hall with its high ceilings made for a grand atmosphere and other secondary locations such as the vault and chairman’s boardroom have a lot of character that makes for great photo opportunities. Being located right at King station was also convenient for guests who were traveling by subway.
Food was likewise excellent. The selection of canapes for cocktail hour was varied and distinctive with jerk chicken hor d'oeuvres a hit with our guests in particular. Although not vegetarian ourselves, we also appreciated that the selection of vegetarian entrees included a couscous cake. It turned out delicious and was a unique option for guests over the usual portobello mushroom or eggplant. For late night we eschewed the usual sweets table and instead opted for a poutine station and fresh fruit as a balance. Both were very well received, the poutine especially by those who had been taking advantage of the open bar.
As part of the package we were offered day use suites and a bridal suite after the reception. As a luxury hotel, the rooms were very spacious with all the amenities expected and had amazing views of the city – great for morning of photos! The only issue we had is the room’s wifi router on the ceiling has the most incredibly bright LED status light. It will seriously light up the room when you’re trying to sleep so find a sticker or electrical tape to block it out!
As a downtown Toronto core location, there is a lot of venue options to choose from and none of them will ever be considered “inexpensive”. In the end, we chose One King West because Aileen was an excellent liaison, and the value we received was well worth the price we paid.

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.Sent on 12/11/2019

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!Sent on 08/09/2019

The wedding venue of our dreams!
One King West was the wedding venue of our dreams! We were looking for a venue with classic charm, beautiful elegance, delicious food and fantastic service. Check, check, check and check! We loved the history of One King West and all of the beautiful areas within the property to capture stunning photos. Our guests couldn't get over the beauty and glamour of the Grand Banking Hall! I also cannot sing enough praise for our venue coordinator, Aileen. She was incredibly patient, thorough, and helpful throughout the entire process. She was very responsive and patient with my 6,4592 questions during our 18 months working together! :) If you want flawless service, high-quality catering, classic glamour and the best value for your money, then One King West fits that bill. Thank you 1KW for everything!Sent on 05/09/2019

Our wedding at One King West was a fantastic experience! From the initial site visit to the end of the wedding day, everything was thoroughly organized and every detailed was executed perfectly. One King West staff, particularly our wedding coordinator Angela, were quick to respond to our various inquiries and were a tremendous help throughout the wedding planning process. We received numerous compliments on the beautiful ceremony and reception spaces and the quick dinner service. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding!Sent on 15/04/2019
