Crystal Ballroom at King Edward Hotel…..King St E, Toronto

Architecture

It’s Doors Open 2013 weekend here in Toronto! I’ve never gotten the chance to go this event in the past, so I made it my mission to venture downtown this weekend to visit a few historical landmarks. This is a great opportunity for architecture lovers and historians to get a glimpse of an impressive array of buildings located downtown while being educated about its historical significance. I’ll be uploading more pictures throughout the week so stay tuned!

Below are a couple of pictures of the Crystal Ballroom in an old luxury hotel downtown called King Edward. They never received enough funding to completely restore this ballroom and you can definitely see that it’s been through some hard times, but it was still a breathtaking venue. It still hasn’t lost its sense of grandeur.
