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
In town for business and the location is great for what we needed. Having sayed before we knew exactly what to expect and they didn't get disappointed.
Good sized suite with a great view of the tower and within walking distance to great food and shopping. For a light meal go one block north to the Bedford Academy.
Will definitely be back.
We were fortunate enough to occupy a suite but others in our family had standard guest rooms with 2 queen beds and they were generously sized rooms, desk, loveseat sitting area.
Linens and decor first rate.
Good to great location. Easy walk for museums , U of T park and grounds and lots of appealing shopping. Many flagship stores in this area.
Lastly, the management, as part of an international luxury group, is exceptionally competent, interested in delivering top quality service for guests. We requested a roll away bed and it arrived withing 10 minutes. Special kudos to General Manager R. Kenda!
We were four in the room with 2 big beds and a large bathroom. The pool area was amazing with indoor pool and large deck to relax. We ate at both restaurants. We found the brunch a bit pricey for the food. The outdoor bar was nice ambiance. It was very clean and had sufficient amount of towels. I would recommend this hotel for location.
This hotel is exactly what I wanted for a big city stay. Great location for shopping and restaurants, convenient to almost every area and public transportation, beautiful accommodations, and wonderfully friendly staff. I can almost always find something to complain about when it comes to hotels, but I don't have a single bad thing to say about this one. I have stayed at Intercontinental before in Chicago and enjoyed it, but this one beats that one!
This is an extremely luxurious hotel in Toronto near the University. You can enjoy exploring the old part of town and shops. The reception of the hotel has something gran that reminds one of hotels in New York in detective movies.The rooms are very spacious, elegant, with nice furniture and full of light. Unlike many hotels the rooms have generous electric light, too. The bathrooms are spacious and full of interesting and surprising toiletries: shampoos, soap, but also cotton pads, ear sticks, cologne... The breakfast is unusually good and delicious. This is not a fast food breakfast but a gourmet breakfast. You need to allow for much time since everything is prepared for you and is instantly made. The restaurant serves delicious food. It is a pleasure to be there. Everybody is very nice and helpful. Wifi was very good
