New condos for the King (King Edward Hotel, that is)

In May of 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono held a press conference from their rumpled bed at Toronto's King Edward hotel. The “bed-in,” the start of the couple's North American crusade for peace, is woven into the history of the 107-year-old landmark at the corner of King and Victoria Streets – and into its value.

“Their room was on the eighth floor,” says Jason Lester, chief operating officer of Dundee Realty Corp. “It wasn't in one of the condominiums or we could probably have tripled the price on that one.”
