InterContinental Toronto Centre says
The InterContinental Toronto Centre, is a hotel in downtown Toronto, Canada. It is part of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre complex on Front Street West in the former Railway Lands. The hotel operations are run by InterContinental Hotels.Formerly L'Hotel CN, the hotel was built by the Canadian National Railway in 1984. It was operated by Canadian National Hotels from 1984 to 1988, sold to Crowne Plaza and renamed Crowne Plaza Hotel Toronto. In 2003, the IHG (owner of Crowne Plaza) decided to rebrand the hotel to a more upscale location and renamed it under the InterContinental Hotel banner. The hotel property was transferred from CN to Canada Lands Corporation in 1988. The property was sold by Canada Lands in 2011 and is now owned by Oxford Properties.The modernistic concrete-clad hotel was the last hotel built for Canadian National Hotels and built on part of the former CN railway lands that was supposed to be part of the Metro Centre development (only the CN Tower was built).The hotel overlooks the tracks from Union Station (Toronto) and the south sections of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
