Intercontinental Hotel Toronto is a modern luxury hotel in Toronto's downtown core, well-placed for the sports arenas of Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre (home of baseball's Blue Jays) and BMO Field (home of soccer's Toronto FC), as well as the financial and entertainment districts.
The hotel has everything the business traveller needs, like copying machines, printers, etc, which are often useful facilities for regular visitors too.
The Intercontinental is on the south-west corner at the junction of Front and Simcoe Streets, which means it's also well-placed for Pier 6 and harbour cruises and the Toronto Island airport.
It is a well-appointed upscale hotel with all the features you'd expect from a major city and a downtown location, such as a celebrated restaurant, Azure, and a Fitness centre and Aveda Spa, with pool and sauna, to work off any over indulgence.
It also has live entertainment, Jazz, in the evenings.
Intercontinental also has a Day Care and Kids Zone Room, open throughout the day, with electronic games, books and swimming pool for those times when your visits aren't likely to appeal to your children.
Some of those trips may be to places such as Roy Thomson Hall, home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Art Gallery of Ontario, or the Eaton Centre shopping mall, both of which are nearby.
Also nearby, and somewhere your kids will want to visit are the CN Tower (see photo), and Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), particularly if the ROM's exhibition is something kids find fascinating, like dinosaurs.
There are various levels of rooms but all of them are top-of-the-line and all with wonderful views over the city or harbour. Large TVs, coffee-making equipment, internet access and bathrobes to make your stay memorable.
As with the other downtown luxury hotels, the Intercontinental is a real home-from-home (unless you're a billionaire and your home is something extraordinary, of course:) In which case you should book a Presidential Suite).
The Intercontinental is also well-placed for the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Canadian Broadcasting Centre, both of which are only steps away from the hotel.
Intercontinental Hotel Toronto has another location in Yorkville, one of Toronto's fashionably exclusive neighbourhoods. Yorkville is famous for its history, in the Sixties this was the place to be, and now for its shops and art galleries.
