The lounge at the King Edward is open on the weekend. Since it sounds like you are a Plat, that hotel is your best choice if you want a great suite upgrade and lounge benefits. Both the downtown Westin (harbour castle) and Sheraton are also good, although the Westin does not have a lounge. The Sheraton lounge benefits are quite good - on par with the best Sheraton has to offer in North America - but the King Edward is still better.

Outside of the downtown core, the Sheraton Parkway is fine but definitely no lounge benefits on the weekends. No big loss, since it is only average in any event. The Westin Prince does not have a lounge and many of the rooms are a little worn. Both the Sheraton and Westin at the ariport are decent hotels (Sheraton has a lounge but not the Westin) and you can usually grab the Westin for ~$100 on the weekend.

All things being equal, I would definitely stay at the King Edward unless I needed to be outside the downtown core and/or budget was a significant factor.
