A fine hotel in the heart of Toronto

I was sitting in the downtown Toronto offices of the Canadian Press for a meeting last week and looking out the window at Le Meridien King Edward Hotel.

I could see the second and third floor above the hotel's main entrance, and I started doodling.

The King Edward is one of the grandest of Toronto's hotels. Over 100 years old, it's a luxury hotel with old world charm in the city's financial district. Mark Twain, the Beatles and Margaret Thatcher have all stayed at this hotel at one time or another.

Wikipedia has a photo of the exterior of the hotel and some interesting facts about its history. The article is here.

The hotel website is here.
