A thriving city with 2.5 million city residents and 5 million people who call the greater metro area home, Toronto is a famously friendly, vibrant and multicultural metropolis with abundant charms, sitting on the northern shores of Lake Ontario. Even during the city’s especially chilly winter season a bustling vibe survives, so it’s always a good time to book a room in one of many inviting Toronto hotels.
Things to See When you approach Toronto by plane, one of the first things you'll notice is a tall, slender building jutting dramatically into the sky: The CN Tower. 1,815 feet tall (about three times taller than Toronto's Space Needle), it is a must-see for those who love skyward heights. Visit one of the tower’s three restaurants (Le Café, Horizons and 360) for a delicious meal, and sign up for the heart-pounding EdgeWalk if you’re looking for something more adventurous. This guided tour takes you on an open-air, hands-free journey high above the streets of Toronto while attached via safety harness to an overhead rail.
Gather your family, hop a ferry and head to Toronto Islands and Centreville Amusement Park, which has roughly 30 attractions perfect for young children as well as the young-at-heart. Bring your camera; the islands offer spectacular skyline views and are great options for a relaxing picnic.
Eaton Centre, a mall with more than 200 retailers, has serious shopping bargains. Also visit the city's multiple Chinatowns, admire the accomplishments of iconic athletes at the Hockey Hall of Fame and travel back in time at the Distillery Historic District. And don't be surprised if you make a few lifelong friends cheering on the Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre, or trying your first peameal bacon sandwich at St. Lawrence Market.
Hotels in Toronto A host of new Toronto hotels have opened in recent years, maintaining an extremely welcoming environment for families. There are also quiet venues providing a serene atmosphere if you’re traveling for business or on a romantic getaway.
Where to Stay Yonge Street is a surging and energetic scene where Eaton Centre and tons of other businesses are located. West Queen West is a hip, two-kilometer area known for shopping opportunities, and the Entertainment District is perfect for theater lovers—be sure to see a show at famed improve comedy venue The Second City if you stay there. Historic and charming, the Yorkville neighborhood has luxurious hotel and dining options. If a quiet, laid-back experience is your ultimate goal, seek hotels slightly outside Toronto's center, such as Roncesvalles Village or the area around St. Lawrence Market.
How to Get to Toronto Toronto Pearson International Airport is about a 30-minute drive from downtown. If you’re traveling from elsewhere in Canada or the U.S. east coast, you may also consider Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The ninth busiest airport in the country, it is located on the Toronto Islands, within the city.
The InterContinental Toronto Centre is connected to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, within walking distance to the entertainment, shopping, theatre and business districts and just steps away from the Rogers & Air Canada Centres and CN Tower. The hotel features the 4-Diamond Azure Restaurant, one of Canada's top spas and exceptional views of Lake Ontario and downtown Toronto.

I got the IHG credit card specifically to rack up points by using it for groceries and day care expenses that I have anyway. Having the card automatically makes you a platinum member. So as a[More]
platinum member, when I arrived, I was automatically offered a free upgrade to a king suite. This was a very nice and unexpected surprise. The king suite consisted of two rooms, one with the king bed and one with a sitting area including a couch with a queen size roll out bed. I was traveling with my five year old son so the roll out bed was perfect for him and I could close the doors between the rooms so that I could work on my computer while he slept. The room was very clean. The bathroom was nice and big. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel was quiet. My son loved the pool and the whirlpool. We ate breakfast there most mornings. They have a breakfast menu to order from in addition to a small buffet. The buffet had the basics; eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, and a waffle maker. My only complaint was that it wasn't always well stocked but the staff were very helpful and friendly. If something was missing from the buffet they would have it cooked fresh and brought straight to the table. I liked the location especially. It's an easy 40 minute drive, depending on traffic, to downtown Toronto. It's also close to the Kelso recreation area and other places I was visiting. So it is outside of downtown Toronto but very central to many other places. The area is safe. There are lots of nearby outdoor shopping malls to pick up whatever you may need. There are plenty of restaurants around. I stayed five nights there with my son while closing up my parents home. I will definitely be staying there again. [Less]
Overall our stay was excellent.
The rooms were clean and the staff was incredible.
There was some construction going on in the parking lot, but that was not a concern to me.
If I was to make any[More]
comments on improvements, it would be the following:
I could not get the internet to work on my computer and was too tired to call the front desk to assist me in resolving the problem.
We had a suite and the television had some issues in the sitting area. It kept shutting off and not all the channels worked.
Not a problem, as I watched TV in the bedroom as that television worked fine. [Less]
