I've had many happy stays at this hotel. This one was unexpected, and began at a ridiculous hour. My building is undergoing repairs. Around 2 a.m. I realized things were worse than I had expected - dust and debris were coming into my suite and making it hard to breathe. Finally I realized I had to get out of there.
The hotel was fully booked. Somehow they magically found a room and made every effort to make my stay pleasant and comfortable. I slept for many happy hours and awoke refreshed. After two nights, I was able to return home.
Dear Intercontinental Yorkville: thanks again for another wonderful, if unanticipated stay!

This is my second stay in Toronto at the InterContinental Yorkville.
It is my preferred hotel. The room was beautifully appointed and exceptionally clean. All of the staff I encountered were friendly and eager to assist. The location - in the beautiful Bloor Street West and Yorkville areas were very convenient for walking and public transportation.
I have and will continue to recommend the InterContinental to my friends and co-workers travelling to Toronto.

Stayed at this hotel while attending training in the area. Arrived late the first evening and ordered room service. The staff provided excellent service and the food was excellent. The next night stopped at the Vodka bar in the lobby just looking for a light dinner, was not impressed, very pricey for quality and quantity. I went back to room and ordered room service, and again got great service and food.
Considering this hotel indicated it was fully booked it was very quiet.

I travel about Ontario for business and come to Toronto at least once a month. I have stayed in many hotels in Toronto, and now only stay at The Intercontinental Hotel- Yorkville. The staff at this hotel get it! The service and product they deliver is consistent at each and every visit. You can expect a clean, comfortable, spacious, safe room each and every time you visit. You can expect, delicious food in any one of the dining rooms or from room service. The staff is always friendly and professional. The location is very convenient with most attractions within walking distance or just a short subway ride away. This hotel is the best home away from home. I will be back!

Unfortunately it was a business trip and most of the time spent was not enjoying the amenities.
Would love to return in the future and enjoy a more personal experience.

My recent stay was a large disappointment. I am in my second year with 'Ambassador' status. I usually stay at the Hotel between 4-6 times per year, but circumstances this year have limited my visits.
So in checking in this past week, it was extremely disappointing to not have my room upgrade handled correctly. Despite moving rooms, I never did receive the level of room I have enjoyed on previous visits.
As well the fruit and water did not arrive until day two, which left me no time to enjoy it.
Not the level of service I have come to expect from this hotel.

The hotel is in an ideal location. You're pretty much in the middle of most things. There's a couple of days worth of activities all within walking distance. Don't forget to visit the Bata Shoe Museum about two blocks away on Bloor Street. OK, back to the hotel. It was very clean. However, if you had an inside courtyard room, the rooms need more light. You could pull back all the draperies, but then you'd have no privacy whatsoever. Also, the lower levels facing the courtyard can be noisy late at night due to the bar crowd. Get a room facing Bloor Street and you won't have any of these issues. The hotel's website said there was a rowing machine in the fitness center and there wasn't. (Only rowers would care about this.)
The staff was quite friendly and helpful.

We were in Toronto for a meeting and found the Intercontinental a very good place to stay. location was wonderful, near museums and restaurants. The bed was perfect, but the bathroom was a bit worn. Overall it was well worth the price and we would stay again.,

Conference held at Intercontinental Yorkville , August 21-23 with about 100 members.
All arrangements worked including significant AV required on the Wednesday.
As usual, the food was excellent and the staff friendly and very efficient.
There were excellent reviews from a great number of our attendees and we are booking again for next summer.

We stayed for a wedding, having travelled from England. Before arriving at the hotel I had an exchange regarding an appointment at a local hairdressers on the day of the wedding. The service I received was fantastic, the booking was made for me at a hairdressers within about 5 mins walk of the hotel, details and confirmation of the appointment was waiting for me when I arrived. Who could ask for more.........

Intercontinental Yorkville's perfect location to downtown and the shops on Bloor made this an attractive selection. When we arrived to our beautifully appointed suite we knew we would return someday. Comfortable king size bed, shower and tub both, coffee and tea service and a view of Bloor were all a bonus. The staff was very accommodating and the concierge very helpful in getting our large group a dining location close by on short notice. The courtyard lounge was a nice way to wind down after a busy day. We look forward to returning to Toronto and will most definitely be booking at the Intercontinental when we do.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HotelGuestFromLA Stellar Facility, Less than Stellar Service
I loved the hotel location, and our room itself was of very high quality. However I was disappointed in one large service issue and a number of smaller issues during my stay. I would expect that level of mediocre service from a hotel costing about half as much. My smaller issues were all likely a result of under-staffing during that particular weekend (wait times at the front desk, the coffee in our room never being replenished, etc). I probably won't have even have noticed the smaller issues much if I wasn't already unhappy about my larger issue. Here was my large issue: When I made my reservation, I requested an adjoining room to friends who had already made their reservation and were staying at the Intercontinental with their small child. We wanted an adjoining room to allow for a sleeping child in one room while adults could visit in another. A few days before our stay, my friends called to confirm their reservation, only to find out that their reservation had been lost and they would need to re-book at a higher rate. Perhaps as a consequence of the lost reservation, when we checked in for our stay, there were no adjoining rooms available. Despite staying for three nights, we were never able to have an adjoining room. First off, I would expect a high quality hotel to notice during my reservation that I was requesting an adjoining room with someone who had not made a reservation (or in this case, someone whose reservation had been lost) and let me know that. That would have allowed the error to be caught before it was material. Secondly, I was disappointed that I never received an explanation for why during a THREE night stay, our request for an adjoining room could not be accommodated for even one night. If our request for an adjoining room was very unlikely to be fulfilled (which apparently it was since it was not accommodated for any of our three nights there), we should have been made aware of that when we made the reservation.
My friends' bad experience with reservations and our attempt at obtaining adjoining rooms served to make me even more frustrated with the way my own reservation was handled. Because I was part of a wedding party, but was staying an additional night, my single stay was put in as two different reservations. I didn't understand that this would mean that I would need to exchange room keys (they all stopped working after the first day). I also didn't understand that they would automatically charge the credit card of the first person who checked in for that first night. I was expecting to pay -- (I made the reservation and I checked outed with my credit card at the end of our stay). I was expecting a high quality hotel experience, but the magnitude and multiplicity of my problems at the hotel left an impression that your hotel is of much lower quality.

I recently stayed at this location for three nights. upon check in I was not upgraded, which i believe is a perk of the Platinum Elite membership. If an upgrade was not available at the time of check in this was not made aware to me.
There was some communication issues with trying to get the internet accessed in room, but it was taken care of.
Recommendation: All snack bar items should be standard in all rooms. I found the stock in my room sub-par to that of the Front street location and other rooms in the hotel.

Great location. Room was spacious & nicely furnished - bed a bit softer than ideal. Service was very good. We would like to make a specific positive comment regarding to the responsiveness and initiative shown by Lisa at the front desk. She is an employee whose customer relations skills should be noted and applauded by the hotel management - thanks for your help, Lisa.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. Only negative is that the bathroom fixture layout was poor. The bathroom is quite large with a lot of unused space in the middle but the shower is only about 32" x 32". Would recommend that you enlarge the shower when it comes time for a refurbishment.

Front desk service was professional and helpful, very pleasant. Always addressed us by name. Walking the hall way of solid wood doors to our room gave a feeling of luxury. Rooms were very quiet including the heat/air conditioning. Could not hear any neighbors, thick walls great for sleeping. Bed was firm yet comfortable with smooth cotton sheets and duvet. I requested a top sheet American style bedding which they brought right away. Bathroom was nice, all marble with separate shower and bathtub which we liked. Lighting could be brighter and only a small 5 inch shelf for makeup and toiletries above pedestal sink. Our view on the 8th floor was over the garden in back, very quiet. The room with dark colors could use more lighting over the luggage rack. Only complaint, housekeeping was not thorough in preparation and left previous guest’s food in fridge and robes had been previously used and were dirty. But, that was forgivable, as this was the quietest room we’ve had at a hotel. Daily housekeeping was fine. Covered outdoor terrace by the pool was nice even during a rainstorm. City self parking was very easy behind the hotel in a protected lot, never more than $18.00 a 24 hour day and less if a partial day. Location is terrific across the street from the Museum, 1 block from Yorkville great eating choices and two blocks from Holt Renfrew. One block to St. George subway and the University.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fullstory Exceptional Staff
We chose this hotel based on the Brand and the location for a stay that required us to be at a downtown location. The Front door staff, the Bell staff and the Front desk staff were absolutely 5 star, helpful, friendly and efficient. Our room was not ready when we arrived (not a big deal) we went for a stroll and received a call that it was ready and this was within 20minutes. Unfortunately, which we only found out on check out, we were assigned a wheelchair access room, we were very disappointed with the room because the bathroom had no counters and the tub etc. were below what our expectations were for this hotel. Also the room 319 is very noisy when the subway is running and has a poor orientation.
The staff in the breakfast room were friendly, helpful, efficient. The food was presented well and was very good.
In the morning there is staff in the lobby(which is lovely and quiet-not flooded with throngs of people) asking if they can help you, if you have any questions re: destinations etc. Really terrific.
The room was not to our liking but the staff was so impressive that we will return and request a different room.
Housekeeping even reminded us as we were leaving to check out to remember our cell plug-ins(which we had forgotten) much appreciated.
Customer service 100'%, room not so much but we are willing to give it another try.

If room 404 of the hotel is an example, the maintenance in the hotel is less than average. I understand there was a multi-million rehab of the hotel a few years ago. Unless housekeeping maintains the rehab it will be money poorly spent.

My wife & I have stayed at this hotel 16 times now. We occasionally stay elsewhere while in Toronto, but often stay here because of the great service, comfortable lodging and super location.
My wife left a little case behind, forgetting to pack it before we checked out. She only discovered this (with horror) when we got home, 4 hours drive from Toronto. The case contained all her earrings and bracelets, gold and silver and including some family heirlooms.
We immediately called the hotel and spoke with the head of housekeeping who had the case sitting on his desk already for us. It was returned by courier, intact, the very next day. What this said to us was that from the maid to the head of a department there was an attitude of caring and honesty. Not sure I would have had this experience anywhere else.

I travel frequently in Ontario. I travel at least once a month to Toronto for business purposes. I am writing this review after staying at this hotel on three separate occassions. Each time I have stayed for an extended period of time. I am so glad that I have discovered this gem of a hotel.
I have been extremely impressed and delighted with the quality and consistency of the professional and friendly service, the room comfort and cleanliness, as well as the delicious food. My experience at the Intercontinential Yorkville, has been so positive, that I have already reserved a room for the next time I am in town! At my last stay, I had a wonderful room that faced the court yard. I would highly recommend this hotel. I look forward to my return visit!

We did our Girls Trip this year to Toronto. From previous experience, I knew we wanted to be in the Yorkville area - safe, not so busy, upscale, easy access to everything, etc. So I went online and booked the Intercontinental on Bloor West. It was definitely the best decision we could have made. The rooms were VERY spacious and luxurious, the staff was extremely courteous and helpful no matter what the request, the amenities were exceptional (except for the lack of wireless) - it all contributed to making a wonderful memory for us of this Toronto trip. We really enjoyed having the outside courtyard area to have a drink and having breakfast in the hotel was a great way to start the day.
I know I would not hesitate to visit again and stay in your hotel. I also know that no matter where we go, I will see if there is an Intercontinental which I can book.
Thanks for a great stay - my girlfriends and I had a wonderful time in your beautiful city. If it were possible to give you 6 stars, I would!

I recently stayed at this property for a family function. The property is nicely appointed and the staff courteous and friendly. Valet parking is quite convenient and readily available. The only downside was that my room was not ready when I we arrived well after 3 pm. Although room cleaning was priorized we did have to wait for our room which was an inconvenience.

We stayed at the Yorkville Intercontinental for a weekend.
The room was probably the best laid out room we have ever occupied. No weird angles, just a comfortable room with a great bed, a large desk, an easy chair and a proper dresser.Also a large bathroom with a separate shower.
There was actually a problem with a noisy wedding party.
The hotel made amends after this was brought to their attention.
We ( including our dog) look forward to our next trip to Toronto.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BettyH Overall I would recommend this hotel.
The location is fantastic. Around the corner from many shops and restaurants. We ate in the hotel restaurant several times and thought the menu was varied and the food very good. The staff in the restaurant were very good.
The staff at the front door were courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient.
I appreciated sincerely that the hotel allowed me an extra hour and a half extended stay as I had a late flight.
I had rented three rooms as we were in Toronto for a family wedding and I came with my two adult children. (Actually I rented 5 rooms for two other siblings) We all enjoyed the use of the terrace. While the cleaning staff were very good in my room,in one of the rooms the towels were not changed in spite of the used towels being placed in the tub. This happened twice.
My one frustration is the necessity to pay for the internet. I just returned from a trip to Turkey where in all those hotels the internet was free. Somehow I thought a modern city like Toronto might offer the same.
