Well positioned in Toronto’s upscale Yorkville neighborhood, the InterContinental features large modern rooms with city views, marble bathrobes and comfy beds. Suites feature sitting areas and iPod docking stations. Start the day with a workout at the well-equipped gym, which includes an indoor lap pool with skylights and a sauna. When hunger strikes, head to the hotel’s award-winning Signatures restaurant, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main dining room or the bistro-style lower level. In warmer weather go for an alfresco drink at the SkyLounge patio, a local favorite thanks to its comfy loungers and Mediterranean-inspired tapas dishes served steps from the buzz of Bloor Street. Or have a cocktail at the sleek spot Proof, which offers a long list of vodkas and music provided by DJs.
In the Area
There’s plenty to keep visitors busy within steps of the hotel’s lobby. Shop the luxe boutiques and browse the art galleries in Bloor-Yorkville and stop for lunch at French-Canadian restaurant Sassafraz, where diners should be sure to order the Canadian cheese plate. Shoppers will also want to hit the nearby Distillery District, a pedestrian-only neighborhood with Victorian-era buildings and more than 70 cultural and retail businesses, art galleries and performance spaces. Save time to visit the Royal Ontario Museum, with its striking glass exterior and more than 40 galleries spanning such subjects as art, archaeology and natural science.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Intercontinental, on Bloor street, for a trip to Toronto for a Jimmy Buffet concert!...Te hotel was beautiful, Location was awesome to see a variety of things and the staff was amazing...Concierge Sanella Begicic is the greatest Concierge on the planet...Kind, helpful and genuinely caring...she is amazing and made us feel we were the most important guests ever
There is no perfect hotel. Intercon Yorkville however tried to compensate all its flaws with friendly staff trying to do the best for their guests. Rooms were large and newly renovated, the outdoor patio was very nice heaven to sit and have a cup of coffee, the atmosphere was very relaxed - maybe a bit long time waiting when too many guests.The room standard was above average, the food likewise. Not a luxurious place but someplace you feel welcome and at home
After staying at the worst hotel in my life, the Hilton London Metropole, I was delighted to stay at the InterContinental Toronto Yorkville. My room was large and elegant. A king size bed. Beautiful linens. A large bathroom with nice amenities. The room was clean and modern. A professional and friendly front desk. This experience is just amazing and all the richer after staying at a horrible hotel at my last stop.
I highly recommend this hotel, and know that anyone will enjoy it.
Hotel under renovation and notice is very small. Room was new and OK but the rest of the hotel stay was awful. Staff is surly, restaurant staff is incompetent, with one exception, bar staff did not want to serve and could not be bothered with you. Hotel would not honor rate guarantee by booking.com. They blamed booking.com and booking.com blamed the hotel. Either way, would never go back nor ever use Booking.com
Check-in was longer than it needed to be because the machine to run the credit card wasn’t working properly. The valet seemed confused by an electric vehicle, and they don’t have any chargers. The view was non-existent as the room faced an inside sort of courtyard. We had an upgraded room (newly refurbished) so it was clean and nice and had things like USB plugs.
There were cotton swabs, lotion, shampoo and conditioner and soap in the room, as well as a hairdryer.
The location is amazing for visits to the ROM. For shopping in Yorkville, the location is decent but the Hazelton is better.
We didn’t eat there or go to the pool.
I wouldn’t call it luxurious but it’s a notch above average. It’s fine as a place to crash but isn’t a destination in and of itself.
