Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smiling Wonderful Stay at Comfortable, Clean, Downtown Location
My work involves lots of travel in Ontario, and I have stayed in many hotels. As luck would have it, I recently stayed at The Intercontinental- Yorkville for the very first time. I had an excellent experience, so much so, that I have already booked this hotel for my next business stop over in Toronto. The room was very clean and well appointed, including instant internet connection, comfy bed, cosy sitting area, sparkling bathroom and a window that actually opened (which is a small thing, but rare in hotel rooms these days). The staff were friendly, attentive and polite. The food in the main dining room was delicious. I look forward to my return visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AJS88 Incredible view and personable staff
My stay at the Intercontinental Yorkville was made most memorable by the front office member with whom I checked in. He was most personable, made me feel very welcome , and provided me with a beautiful room with a stunning view of the CN Tower, Stadium, and ROM all wrapped in one.
I have eaten once before in the Signatures Restaurant, and upon my return, my waiter recognized me and made me feel right at home!!
An elegant home away from home!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LordSebastian1969 Simply the Very Best.
We stayed at this excellent hotel only one night during our Canadian trip. Right from check-in through check-out the service and comfort were superb. Arlene the front office manager greeted me with a smile so warm and welcoming, it was like I'd arrived home to a caring relative.
The hotel went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Management are obviously doing something very right here. Mr. Antoine the GM can be proud. Benefiting from being a Platinum Ambassador member I received a superb room upgrade, enjoyed excellent service and food from the restaurant, and marvelous room service delivered timely, hot and served in our suite. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly, and obviously well trained in service.
This is a grand hotel but still small enough that you feel part of it rather than numbered and lost, it has most everything a full service hotel should. From the greeting by the doorman, to a fast friendly check in, to the very high quality of the rooms. Nothing is too much trouble, the concierge team are so knowledgeable and always make time to assist and give good advice on local stores. The location is great, close to the underground or a walk to, most things of note and interest close by, with all the high end fashionable stores in Bloor street.
The rooms are spacious and beds have divine pillow tops and the linens so comfortable. I enjoyed the bath soap and amenity selection a nice change from harsh shampoos some hotels have. Our suite had a steam room, huge bath and few toilets one with bidet, it really was all superb, peaceful and very relaxing.
I will choose this hotel when coming back to Toronto. I highly recommend it and suggest you join the Ambassador program if you intend to stay as they certainly will make every effort to look after you.
This year in July 2013 the Priority Rewards club gets a revamp, a new name and new benefits, with some better reward opportunities and will be called the IHG Rewards Club, so look out for those exciting changes. As an IHG Platinum Elite Ambassador for ten years, I can highly recommend this hotel and the IHG free rewards program. I am truly looking forward to visiting again.

The party in the courtyard kept me awake until it finally stopped. Had to drive back to Montreal early next morning. Really didn`t appreciate that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy250 Great accomadations and location
This hotel is perfectly located; great shopping all around; across the street from the ROM, the University of Toronto, Queens Park, and more. The beds are very compfortable, they have a nice complimentry kit in the washroom with a variety of items that you may need during your stay, there is a Keurig machine in the room, large flat screen TV, good restaurant on site and others neerby. Staff is friendly and available to help with whatever you need. Getting a taxi or directions was very quick and easy. Would go back to stay without a doubt.

We got upgraded to a corner room which was really nice.
The down side of our stay was that we could hear the baby crying from three rooms down through the ventilation system. We did not sleep well because of that.
