I believe in sharing my experiences with other travelers so they know know what to expect when staying in various places.
When I entered the hotel, it's decor didn't strike me as a hotel. It was more of conference setting. I was checked in within a short period of time. The hotel front staff & manager were more than friendly and helpful in getting my Priority points reward number to assign to my name & they gave me a complimentary upgrade, which I really appreciated. I had a room on the 17th floor facing the river and the small TO City Airport. The CN Tower was in front of me to the right along with the Roger's Centre and Ripley's Acquarium.

The bed! Well, I can't tell you enough how great the bed for sleeping was! The pillows were so comfortable as well as the mattress. The coverings and sheets were fresh smelling too. I really appreciate a good sleeping arrangement and the Intercontinental Hotel gave me that perfect sleep.
The Concierge Callum went above and beyond his service to get me an electrical cart since the TBEX conference was so far away. The WTCC is so large that I had a very difficult time getting to and from the hotel which was connected to the WTCC. I would suggest that the hotel start to have these carts in stock as I believe that guests would gladly pay to rent them when staying there for a conference. Here is my Callum, thank you so much. You are a true asset to the InterContinental Hotel!

I highly recommend staying at the InterContinental Hotel when in downtown Toronto and to fly into the TO City Centre Island airport. A very short free ferry ride brings you to down town TO and a short $10 taxi ride to the hotel or if your knees are in good shape, you can walk it in 10 minutes.
Leaving the hotel, I had express check out. The Concierge Jackie worked great to get my charging cord to me so I can return to the hotel from the TBEX conference are. Then the bell man and the door man worked to get me into my cab and off to the airport to fly home.
I had the BEST time in a long time at this hotel and to attend a fabulous conference with the TBEX travel team with bloggers like me and sponsors.
Thank you so much for a great experience!
