Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Toronto Yorkville
Nice hotel, as long as you don't drive
We stayed at the Intercontinental at 300 Bloor Street. The hotel itself was great with a good staff.
Our only complaint is the lack of parking. The valet was terrible for $30 a night and the private lot behind the hotel was $24 a night with no in and out.
The location works well as its only one block from the Subway. But if you drive to Toronto, I would avoid this one.
InterContinental - Nice Hotel!
We stayed for two nights at the Hotel InterContinental in Toronto. It was well worth it at the PriceLine rate. Our only word of advice is to look into the parking situation before you arrive. We parked around the corner in the public parking area. The attendant directed us to the 4th level (four levels below the hotel). It was $43 Canadian for two days. We did not get the car out while we were there - we took the subway. It was supposed to be $30/day for valet parking with unlimited in/out priveleges. The hotel room was clean, quiet, large, and comfortable. Elevators quite efficient. Desk staff was courteous. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, and subway. We would stay there again.
Enjoyed our stay/ nice staff nice room
We stayed at this hotel July 24th for three nights with our two teenage kids. The staff and the room was very very nice. The room was very nice with feather pillows and down comforters. big fluffy towels and nicely stocked wetbar(if you choose to indulge) very expensive as they all are. When we left a tip for the maid she left a thankyou note. when we requested our car we promptly rec'd within minutes. We would stay at this hotel again and again. good location,shopping right outside the front door. Next door to the Skydome and the CN Tower. A great hotel and location.
Great city hotel...!
I agree - great hotel...friendly staff...superb lobby!! The hotel also has a decent pool ..excellent location and very close to Shopsys - the best breakfast!!
Great location; less so the rooms
I don't think that this Intercontinental measured up to others I've stayed at. It had the same impressive lobby, but our room (#518) was a little shabby - marks on the wallpaper, loose and leaky faucet, some peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, less than high-end amenities. It was clean, the service was friendly and the location was super. We paid $139 US on a pre-pay rate via the hotel Web site. I think once the rooms get an update (is there one in the future?), this will be a first-class hotel.
Loved it! Perfect location to shopping, dining and taking walks. Stayed here everytime I travel to Toronto. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms.
Friendly staff. Wonderful!
It's located in a "5th Ave" type of neiborhood, walking distance to name branded stores. There are several other big hotels nearby, i.e.
Four Season, so you can't go wrong. It's convenient to the highway and downtown. The room I got (from priceline for us$65) was very good, big and clean no view though. Municipal parking was right around the conner with direct access to the lobby. I only paid can$11 for more than 12 hrs, don't pay $30 valet. Look for the green "P" sign.
Wonderful hotel at the heart of Toronto!
The Inter-Continental has become my favorite hotel in Toronto. I always stay there--great location--near Yorkville--wonderful rooms with big, comfortable beds, big desk good for working, VCR, marble bathrooms, big terry robes--all the amenities that make for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The staff is very attentive and provides excellent service.
Toronto's Best Hotel
This hotel is on the perimeter of Toronto's Yorkville district - a yuppie area primarily of boutiques, galleries, and cosmopolitan cuisine plus the UofT. Quiet setting; usually the only disturbance is birdsong.
However, it's a short walk (less than a city block) to a subway that provides safe, clean and frequent rapid transit in air-conditioned comfort to traditional retail stores and office towers. Staff was courteous and knowledgeable even though they knew I was using Priceline and only paying $68 U.S. for my room (rack rate is $200 U.S.). General decor - much use made of dark wood panelling/moulding. Std room is very large and includes a safe, mini bar and desk (with hub for free broadband access to the net and vpn) and color printer. Indoor lap pool is 15 ft by 50 ft. Exercise room is very well equipped. Restaurant fare is adequate but not noteworthy. Best restaurant in T.O. is ZOOM (but what an ugly name) - across the street from the King Edward Hotel. My business brings me very frequently to T.O. and I've stayed at every 3 and 4 star hotel here. IMNSHO this is the best of the bunch despite being a $10 cab ride to the financial district ($2.25 subway fare).
I love this hotel!
This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. The service was excellent, the location was great (near theatres, shopping, subway, museum, university, everything!), and the rooms were spacious and beautiful. The restaurant had a lovely tea service in the afternoon and the lobby was very pleasant. The bathrooms are particularly large and the separate shower is great. My room was one of the few with a lousy view but I didn't care. I would stay here again, although it is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

... br> After I registered I received an email package with a bunch of forms I needed to fill out and send back. I dropped it off at the "Travel Cuts" inside York University for the lady to mail it out on my behalf. I didn't like that part of the process because they only worked Mon-Fri 9 to 5 so it was a bit difficult to work out a time to get the package to them but I managed and about a week later I received a hard copy of their Welcome Package. I had ...
... and I found the Consulate. My visa application went fairly smoothly, thankfully although done by a brusque and unfriendly attendant who told me it wouldn't be ready till the next week, when I had hoped to be in Virginia. Leaving my passport was a bit scary but I knew it had to be done, then off again to find Union Station and a way out to Hamilton where we were staying before the bus left the next day for Manitoulin! Easier said than done but thankfully I found my way ...
... the airport for our 13.5 hours trip to Vancouver. In Vancouver we boarded the same plane, using the same seats for a 3.5 hour trip to Toronto. That was the best part of the trip as I slept and time passed quickly. The annoying "throat clearer" had also got off the plane as well as the squealing kid.
The hotel is up to Jenny's usual standard- budget. At least the receptionist Nhat, carried my bag up ...
Any early start, breakfast at 6:40 and checked out and in the town car by 7:15. The traffic was exceptionally busy, due in large to the many road closures for their road works. We arrive at Pearson Airport at about 8:05am, checked in and waited for our 9am flight to Calgary. We flew with West Jet who were quite good....one bag each included and drinks and snacks during the ...
... rather uneventful and did not even get lost.
Realized I had stayed at the Best Western Plus Toronto Airport Hotel in the past. Into the room by 1920. Made sure the alarm clock worked [would need it] and mucked about.
Wanted to stay up to 2300. Caught 2H of 'American Idol' and an episode of 'Top Chef', with some hockey and other sports interspersed.
Bed indeed at ...
