Hotel Information

King Edward Hotel - 37 King Street East

Throughout its long history, the Omni King Edward Hotel has set the standard for luxury hotels in Canada. As Toronto’s first luxury hotel build in 1903, it has long been the first choice of Toronto’s elite, as well as convention goers, political figures, making it perfectly suited for the standards of the travel retail industry.

The FDFA has negotiated special group rates for a block of rooms with the King Edward. Reservations made outside of this block can increase FDFA costs due to penalties for not filling our room block. In order to avoid increasing expenses that may therefore result in increasing future registration fees, we respectfully request that all convention attendees make a reservation within the FDFA block of rooms.
