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.

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!Sent on 12/10/2020

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!Sent on 17/01/2020

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
