As Canada’s financial and business centre as well as a North American cultural capital, Toronto welcomes millions of visitors every year. Many visitors stay at one of the city’s multitude of fine hotels, and a select group of those overnighting in Toronto find accommodation at one of the city’s premiere luxury hotels. Global Alliance Worldwide Chauffeured Services frequently operates out of these hotels, transferring clients to and from the airport to these downtown hospitality facilities, as well as to meetings, conferences, public appearances, shows, sporting events, and anywhere else our clients need to go. Please consider contacting us for chauffeured services should you be staying at a Toronto-area hotel. A few of the city’s best hotels will be detailed for prospective visitors, with today’s focus being fixed on two major chain players in the hotel world.
InterContinental Hotel – Toronto Centre and Toronto Yorkville
Connected to a tradition of professional hospitality stretching back to pioneering airlines and 18th-century English pubs, InterContinental Hotels are recognized worldwide for the quality of their accommodations and of their superior customer service. Toronto can boast two InterContinental Hotels.
The InterContinental Toronto Centre stands at the corner of Front Street West and Simcoe Street in the heart of downtown. Connected to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the InterContinental Toronto Centre is also little more than a block away from major core attractions such as the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium, and Roy Thomson Hall, with Toronto’s main rail and transit hub Union Station a short stroll to the east. With 586 guest rooms, 24-hour fitness centre, indoor saltwater swimming pool, and concept spa, the InterContinental Toronto Centre offers the complete modern hospitality experience in a convenient location.
The InterContinental Toronto Yorkville is located on Bloor Street West across the street from the Royal Ontario Museum and near the classical architecture and green space of the University of Toronto’s main campus. A stylish boutique hotel in the vicinity of the exclusive Yorkville neighbourhood, this InterContinental offers comfort and luxury in an elegant high-end setting.
Sheraton Centre and Sheraton Gateway
The well-recognized Sheraton hotel chain operates two facilities in Toronto. The sprawling Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel rises above Queen Street West, directly across from Nathan Phillips Square and Toronto City Hall and next door to the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. With over 1,300 rooms, 130,000 square feet of convention and meeting space, restaurants, bars, shops, and an indoor/outdoor pool complex that is among Toronto’s largest, the Sheraton Centre is one of the city’s major hospitality locations. The Sheraton Gateway brings similar quality and comfort to Terminal 3 of Pearson International Airport, with restaurant and bar, club lounge, fitness centre, and meeting spaces all onsite in the only hotel located directly at Canada’s largest and busiest airport.
