Great location and hotel for wedding weekend!

I chose this hotel for my wedding guests and my husband and I for our wedding weekend and I’m so glad I did. The hotel feels very boutique even though it is an Intercontinental! The rooms are newly renovated, spacious and so comfortable with amazing views of the city. Fabiana and her team did such a great job of making us feel special all weekend. I highly recommend this hotel for any wedding or event you may be hosting! Perfect location and amazing price point for what they have to offer. Thank you Intercontinental Yorkville we will be returning very soon!

I can't begin to express how unbelievably impressed and blown away we were by the amazing service we received. Even our guests couldn't stop raving about how amazing our hotel choice was. I have to say a huge Thank you to Shaun Pearson who was our first point of contact with the Intercontinental and every after meeting him was just as easy and an absolute pleasure to deal with :)
We stayed in the Royal Suite and to say that it was the icing on our day would be an understatement. This suite is absolutely breathtaking, we got some of the most incredible photos I could ever ask for and the entire staff made us feel at home during our stay. I can't wait to go back again soon :)
I'd almost like to get married again just to relive our amazing experience
Thank you again everyone at the Intercontinental for making our wedding day extra unforgettable!

Amazing wedding venue

The Yorkville Royal Sonesta is truly a hidden gem as a wedding venue. The venue is staffed by an amazing team that delivers at the highest standard with love and care.

I want to call out Jodi Kalbfleisch specifically for being the most accommodating, detail oriented and genuine event manager one can ever hope for. She had been our rock throughout our wedding planning journey and was very involved throughout the entire process especially on our big day - our wedding could not had been so perfectly executed without her and you will most definitely feel the same if you have the honour to coordinate your event with her.

The food at the hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the food choices are abundant and amazingly plated. The chefs are extremely flexible and were willing to accommodate changes of every detail that we felt were important to us.

The venue itself brings so more charisma to an overly modernized Toronto landscape. It has stunning interior decor and renovation which makes our special day like a fairytale.

The royal suite was such a treat. Admittedly we were feeling immense pressure prior to our big day but the moment you step in the suite, it has a natural calming and mood lifting effect that made us feel like royalties with unobstructed view of the CN Tower and downtown Toronto. You need to be there to experience the luxury of the suite to fully appreciate this statement!

Thank you so much Yorkville Royal Sonesta Team! You are truly amazing!

Felt like Royalty

Highly highly recommend! Everything was top-notch, from the rooms to the food, to the surprise sparkling wine, my entire family enjoyed the hotel amenities. It was like staying in someones house! The staff was very friendly and helped me the entire process from booking til checkout. Everything was looked after. It was the small touches that really surprised me, like when they brought a bottle of sparkling wine with chocolate covered strawberries to our room or how they left a personalized, signed card for us. The room was absolutely gorgeous. I would stay here again, without a doubt, and would highly recommend it to anyone staying from out of town.

Wedding acoomodation

We recently got married at Hart House and stayed at the intercontinental Yorkville. We had outstanding service and Fabiana made our stay and the process so wonderful. She continued to provide accommodations along the way including special rate of Royal Suite and nice touch of strawberries and champagne. We would highly recommend staying here

Best Day Ever!

We booked the Royal Suite over the weekend for our wedding on Aug 17, 2019. The Suite came with a spectacular view across from the ROM and the UT Campus. The staff on site were very accommodating and allowed us to check in earlier than scheduled time. The room is newly renovated, modern designed, and very spacious compare to other hotels in Downtown Toronto! Throughout the stay the hotel provided exceptional services and nice add ons to make our special day even more special! The location is at the heart of Toronto, and it is very convenient to get to places! I would highly recommend the IC Yorkville to others.

A great hotel for our son's wedding at the ROM

We used the Intercontinental Yorkville as our headquarters for our son's wedding at the ROM (right across the street). We had a lovely dinner for about 40 of our guests on the Friday before the wedding, and used an executive suite as our get-ready-room. Fabiana and her team were outstanding and helped us make everything perfect. Food - great! Rooms - lovely! Convenience - perfect! Service - superlative! The hotel has a boutique feel and we would definitely use it again!

Highly Recommended

The Intercontinental Toronto Yorkville was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. They even helped us book a last minute wedding brunch for 70 guests one week before our wedding. Several of our guests raved about the quality of the hotel as well.

Guest Accommodations

We used the Intercontinental as our hotel of choice for guests travelling to Toronto for our son's wedding. We had 27 rooms booked in our guaranteed block and everyone was extremely happy with their stay and the professional services provided. Their newly renovated rooms are beautiful! We also hosted a brunch in their Proof Bar and Sky Lounge and were extremely happy with this space! Our main contact with the hotel, Fabiana, looked after every detail to do with the wedding account and gave us very speedy and personalized service! We would highly recommend this hotel in Yorkville!
