This morning we left SJ's house around 8.30am and made a stop at the Canwax warehouse in Huntsville. SJ opened the company around 7 years ago, she distributes wax, soaps, oils etc... all over the world. We were given the guided tour and then we sadly had to say goodbye. It's nice spending time over here with my family. I've briefly met my cousins …

He suffered from the curse of Ethiopia, too, and hasn't got back to speed since, but still hopes to join the ranks of proper elite Canadian marathoners this week.

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.
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.
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.
