The Intercontinental Yorkville was a hotel I had chosen via TripAdvisor for its good hotel reviews, and it did not disappoint.
Intercontinental Yorkville, Toronto, Ontario
The Intercontinental Yorkville has an excellent location and on arrival enjoyed a very warm and personalised welcome. When we arrived we have an efficient and excellent check-in. On the very warm July day, it was also nice to enjoy refreshing lemon water and fresh apples freely available in the lobby. The hotel is in a very nice location close to the Royal Ontario Museum and within walking distance of Queens Park (under 8 minutes walk), Chinatown (about 25 minutes walk) and The Dundas Centre (about 35 minutes walk).
The rooms at the Intercontinental Yorkville are very good but some rooms have no bedside locker on one side; This may not be a big point but I like to have space for an alarm clock etc. We stayed in the Intercontinental Yorkville on two occasions, once on arrival in Canada and again two weeks later (before leaving Canada). Just a note, that the second room we stayed in had lockers each side and a stunning view down Bloor street west.
The rooms have excellent air conditioning and are extremely comfortable, with kettle and coffee making facilities also in the room. It is a great hotel with wonderful staff who will help you wherever possible. We had a few requests which we needed to get sorted and the staff obliged hugely. There is WiFi connectivity available but at an extra charge and unfortunately, the connection did time out a few times. Paying for WiFi in a hotel is something which is often a deal breaker for me.
Gift shop in the lobby is very good for things like newspapers, sweets, water and snacks and is very useful to have something so close.
