Travel Deal for December 24-26, 2012
In 2013, get re-acquainted with an old favourite — the venerable King Edward Hotel.
Toronto’s oldest luxury hotel is celebrating its 110th birthday in 2013 and throughout January guests can book rooms for just $110 a night. The first 110 guests who make a booking will also receive free WiFi during their stay.
Reservations are for the deluxe room category and must be made by December 31.
The King Edward was built in 1903 and has hosted dignitaries and celebrities, including the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Located just east of Yonge Street and the Financial District, the hotel features one of Toronto’s most well known afternoon tea services. This year, it also held a special tree-lighting ceremony in November, featuring carollers (pictured above) and special concoctions for the occasion.
Vacay.ca Recommends ‘The Nutcracker’ in Toronto
During your stay at the King Edward, you might have the opportunity to check out The Nutcracker, a holiday tradition at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Vacay.ca Writer Sandra Williams-Hervé recently reported on the production, which runs until January 5, 2013.
Williams-Hervé writes: “From start to finish the ballet is visually stunning. Be it the beautiful, highly detailed costumes, or the multi-faceted sets and the flawless performances, the evening you spent at the ballet will be etched in your memory for years to come. Geddes has performed in three versions of The Nutcracker; however, James Kudelka’s 1995 take on the holiday classic, in her opinion, is the best of all.”
