The InterContinental Toronto Centre says the reopening of its ballroom clearly underscores that it means business.
The hotel held a recent celebration marking the completion of a 2.5-month renovation of the facility, which hotel general manager Alexi Hakim praised as having a modern, fresh look to it. The hotel also has some 20 meeting rooms that have also been renovated. The InterContinental Toronto Centre tends to see more business travellers during the week and more leisure travellers on the weekend.
But Hakim told a recent gathering that his hotel can easily accommodate both, in part because of its location.
“We’re in the centre of the city,” he told the audience, adding guests can walk to the likes of the Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, CN Tower or Ripley’s within five minutes.
Hakim said his hotel is particularly well-suited for serving convention goers to Toronto as it’s physically linked to the Toronto Convention Centre and was built with that huge facility. “If you go one step outside the hotel, you’ll be in the centre.”
