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.

a great nights sleep in this grand silent room I awoke about 07h50. I pushed
the button on the remote to open the electric curtains and what a great view it
was to awaken to. 15 floors up and looking out across the city from ones
bedroom is just magical.
up and about and after a nice cup of coffee I headed down to the restaurant for

From Ottawa, we caught the Viarail train to Toronto, a very relaxing and enjoyable four and a half hours, and the transition to spring increasingly evident as we reached Lake Ontario and Toronto. It has been a little warmer here, with leaves and blossom on the trees. Although the city is far more 'high rise' than the capital - another building boom, and the skyline dominated by ...

We have walked around the main part of Toronto, there seems to be a few odd people here ...

was very excited by this. All in all, a night well spent! I love a good aquarium!
Monday: So today was Labour day in Canada, a glorified day off for I’m not really sure what reason. It was lovely. I went with my housemates, Alex and Tatiana, to visit the Canada National Exhibition. Our first mistake was to play sardines on the streetcar from Bathurst. Turns out this exhibition is a big thing out here! ...

Shortly after, JJ returned to camp riding mountain bikes, we embraced, recounted our Canadian adventure stories thus far, and settled in for an afternoon of Baggo, Hand & Foot and imported American hooch. We needed a new tent for this trip, our trusty Ozark Trail pop-up had ...
