King Blue Hotel Toronto sits at the corner of King Street and Blue Jays Way wearing a piece of the area's history – namely the Westinghouse Building – on its front exterior. 

The north and west facades of the nearly century-old facility with heritage designation were preserved to be part of the city's latest boutique hotel that first broke ground in 2015.

But inside is nothing like it used to be, with the terracotta-trimmed brick exterior giving way to a space designed by CHIL Interior Design. The hotel lobby is sleek if a tad boring, and uses marble, various metals and wood against a simplistic colour scheme of black and brown.

Originally constructed by the same developers of the condos, Greenland Group, it's since been acquired by Northland Properties, which already owns 60 hotels including Sandman Inn and Sutton Place.

There are 118 guestrooms, including seven suites, and you can be assured once you've seen one, you've seen them all – save for a slightly different floorplan. Room rates sit in the range of $200 to $230 per night.

The king suite features a separate living space with seating around a wall-mounted TV and another telly facing the plush-looking bed.

Although it's nothing fancy, it's certainly comfortable enough for a relaxed night of room service and catching some z's. In the bathroom, find a walk-in rain shower.

Condo tenants share the amenities with hotel guests including the indoor swimming pool on the seventh floor, which would be an added perk during a winter stay.

The executive lounge with a 60-person limit, a bar and comfy loungers can be used for any sort of event or business meeting as long as you book in advance.

Fit for a bit more of a swankier occasion is the large banquet room, which can hold over 250 people at a time. About a dozen fancy chandeliers hang overhead.
