Pet fish to go at Toronto hotel

Guests at many Kimpton Hotels are offered a loaner goldfish for the duration of their stay.

But to celebrate the opening of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the InterContinental Toronto Centre is offering a package that not only loans guests a fish (named “Ripples”) but lets them take the fish home.

Fish to go Toronto

The hotel provides a travel container, water conditioner, fish food and protective wrap for the fish bowl and instructions for taking care of the new pet.

And for those that don’t want to take their fish home, the hotel has partnered with a local organization that will donate Ripples or one of his friends to a local school as a classroom pet.
